Reader, you may be familiar with our blog, or you may be just stopping by. But either way, here at TouringPlans, we wanted to tell you that we are incredibly excited to do a re-launch of our blog itself!

We’re going to be giving you new features including: guest blog posts, photo features and site features as well! We’re also going to be featuring regular weekly postings from our amazing bloggers.

You may be familiar with the TouringPlans team but did you know we have wonderful weekly columnists here at the TouringPlans blog? We thought that this would be a perfect time to introduce you to our wonderful TouringPlans blogging team!

Caroline Baggerly: Tuesday Columnist, Euphoric Blogger

Favorite Disney World Rides: Soarin’ & Splash Mountain
Favorite World Showcase Countries: Canada and France

Caroline is a Disney research hound.  She uses any excuse to go to Disney World.  She Travels to Disney almost monthly with her sons, husband or solo.  She even ran the Princess Half Marathon as an excuse for a trip.  She’s now a runner thanks solely to Disney.  Her favorite actives at Disney World include: absorbing the atmosphere, staying club level, eating delicious food & watching the shows.  When she drives onto Disney property she still claps her hands and sings “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah”.  The thrill she gets from “just being there” is worth the price of admission.  If forced to chose, Epcot is her favorite park.  Caroline’s mantra: “Disney is in the details.”  Caroline is a big kid.

Kristen Helmstetter: Wednesday Columnist and Unofficial Guide Researcher

Favorite Attractions: Splash Mountain and American Adventure
Favorite Resort (so far): Boardwalk

Kristen Helmstetter is one of the bloggers for touringplans.com as well as a researcher for the Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World.  Kristen is living the young, single life so she has been making several trips a year to WDW with her friends.  She is out to prove that Disney World isn’t just for kids and families!  She likes to write about Disney’s offerings which might appeal to people her age, but thinks most of her advice can really apply to just about anyone.  Her favorite things to do around Disney World include sampling drinks around World Showcase, laughing until it hurts with her crew of Disney friends, and trying something new on every trip.  You can follow her Disney (and everyday life) adventures on Twitter.

Todd Perlmutter, Thursday Columnist, Friendly Neighborhood Geek

Favorite Ride That Needs A Better Queue: Astro Orbiter
Favorite Fountain: Fountain of Nations

Todd is a Central Florida local who just so happens to be a mega geeky Disney, tech, and gaming nerd. He lives or dies by his iPhone – it spending a significant amount of time in his hand while he’s at Walt Disney World which he’s been to so many times that he’s basically stopped counting. The Disney Force is strong in Todd’s family and has been passed on throughout the generations. He shares a birthday with Tigger and The Sum Of All Thrills. Loves his wife, pup, and cat. In his spare time Todd has undertaken several programming projects for TouringPlans.com.

We’re extremely excited about the future of the TouringPlans blog, so stay tuned!
