Girl Scouts to celebrate 100th birthday at Walt Disney World

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.

we will be at Disney World in March .... the ACTUAL girl scout week. Do they have anything for Girl scouts on that week. My daughter is a cadette and has been a GS since daisy's....her 7th years in GS. It would be nice for any scout at Disney on those days to have or do something special!!!!

Stacie Gatzemeyer:

Oh my goodness! This is such an amazing opportunity for our daughters that are in Girl Scouts! And a wonderful way to have some magical mother/daughter time too!

Any idea if there will be reduced resort rates for those traveling from out of state?

Thanks for sharing this wonderful information!

Andrea:

Very cool event! Is this open to members of other WAGGGS countries? I am sure some members of Girl Guides of Canada would love to attend too.

Connie:

My niece is a Cadet, in fact just completed her Silver medal. My sister is the leader and I help her. We never heard anything about an event in Disney World or Disneyland for that matter. Is there a way to get a Disney Girl Scout 100th Anniversary pin or something? Please advise.

Kristin Ford:

Sharon: My Disney contact said they are concentrating their efforts on the May event, so nothing additional is planned for March.

Kristin Ford:

Hi, ladies. To answer your questions: There will not be any Girl Scout activities during the official week in March. I'm told Disney World is focusing on the bridging event. The commemorative items are for the participating Girl Scouts, not for public sale. And Girl Guides of Canada are definitely welcome!
