Girl Scouts will have a unique opportunity to celebrate their organization's 100th birthday this spring with special events at Walt Disney World during Memorial Day weekend. "Bridging into the Next Century" takes place May 25 to 28 at Epcot in Orlando, Florida.
On Saturday, troops will recite the Girl Scout Promise in unison with all attendees and then participate in a one-time bridging ceremony. Afterward, they will receive commemorative keepsakes and can elect to attend a group breakfast in the theme park and have meet-and-greets with Disney characters. (Tips for meeting characters can be found at http://allears.net/tp/fur.htm)
Girl Scouts also will be able to learn about their organization's history with memorabilia on display at Epcot and explore Walt Disney World using a special booklet designed to guide girls toward activities that may help them complete National Proficiency Badge and Leadership Journey.
In addition, troops can elect to attend a Disney Youth Education Series program. During "Many Cultures, One World," girls will examine what defines culture and discover that while people come from many different backgrounds, they all have similar needs, interests and issues. (Because of advanced educational content and activities, this program is open to Brownies, Juniors, Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassador Girl Scouts. Daisies -- who are kindergarteners and first-graders -- are not eligible.)
Registration for the historic weekend is now open. The deadline is May 1, or when capacity has been reached. Packages and pricing options for Girl Scouts and their families can be found at www.DisneyURL.com/GirlScouts100 for this event. Annual and cast member passes will not be accepted for these events.
A comparable event is being held at Disneyland in California the same weekend, but it has already sold out.
