Disneyland is celebrating Girl Scouts of all ages in April, May and June with Disney Youth Education Series programs offered on Saturdays and Sundays. Individual girls or their troops can register now for special events at Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure.

If this sounds exciting – and who wouldn’t like learning at a theme park? -- don’t delay because programs have sold out in past years. CELEBRATE Girl Scout events take place April 28 and 29; May 19 and 20; June 2, 3, 9, 10, 23, 24 and 30; and July 1.

Saturday programs take place at Disney California Adventure. Girl Scouts can choose from these offerings:

Energy and Waves Physics Lab 201 (Cadettes, Seniors, Ambassadors): “Discover light, sound, and magnetism as forms of energy and how to use them in practical application. See firsthand how these elements are a vital part of creating world class attractions and how Disney uses these physical properties to entertain and amaze guests from all over the world. As they travel through the park, Scouts will come to understand some of physics most noted historical figures and their impact on the field.”

Designing a Disney Story (Brownies, Juniors, Cadettes): “Explore the rich legacy of animation from its most early forms, through Walt Disney's legacy to today. Learn about the complex components that work together to bring favorite Disney characters and stories to the big screen and Disney Parks. Scouts will study Walt Disney's role in the history and processes used to create early animated features, as well as the innovative animation techniques used to bring the vision of modern storytellers to life.”

Exploring the Golden State for Daisies: “Learn about California's rich history including the influential Dreamers who have shaped the Golden State. Explore the people, events, hopes and dreams that have shaped the Disneyland Resort's home state.”

Sunday programs take place at Disneyland park. They include:

Music 101: Inside the Soundtrack of Disneyland (Brownies, Juniors, Cadettes): “Scouts interact with an entertainment professional and learn the integral role that music plays at Disneyland Resort, in Disney films and in the world at large. Scouts will have a hands-on experience of how music can create atmospheric tone, emotion, and even a sense of time and place.”

Energy and Waves Physics Lab 101 (Brownies & Juniors): “Discover light and sound as forms of energy and how to use them in practical application. See first-hand how these elements are a vital part of creating world class attractions and how Disney uses these physical properties to entertain and amaze guests from all over the world. As they travel through the park, scouts will come to understand some of physics most noted historical figures and their impact on the field.”

Disney Leadership Assembly (Cadettes, Seniors, Ambassadors): Future leaders and current dreamers are invited to participate in a live, interactive leadership assembly led by an experienced team of energetic Disney facilitators. Facilitators provide an exciting behind-the-scenes look into the history of Disneyland and the courage it took to bring one of Walt's most "impossible" dreams to life. Participants will then be given the opportunity to dissect their personal goals and develop strategies needed to lead their journey and inspire others on their path as well.”

Each program is approximately three hours long, and troops and individual Scouts can expect to experience the events with other Girl Scouts. “Exploring the Golden State” is about two hours in long. Participants must be at east 7 years old, with the exception of “Exploring the Golden State,” which is designed for ages 5 to 7.

To attend one or more of these sessions just for Girl Scouts, each girl and each chaperone must purchase a Youth Education Series ticket package. They can choose from the program-only for $50; a one-day, one-park ticket for $100; one-day, park-hopper ticket for $145; two-day park-hopper for $192; three-day, park-hopper for $233. These prices include a Disney Youth Education Series “CELEBRATE Girl Scouts” participation patch and Disney Youth Education Series string backpack.

One complimentary chaperone ticket will be issued for every 10 paid Scouts. One complimentary troop leader ticket will be issued for every 30 paid students. The same discounted pricing is available for additional guests visiting Disneyland on the same day. These additional guests, including non-participating youth, will not be permitted to attend the programs but instead can explore the park.

Walt Disney World is taking summer camp for Girl Scouts to a whole new level with its Girls Unite: Dream, Act, Change adventures for girls in grades kindergarden through twelfth grade.

Girl Scouts and their troops can participate in Disney Youth Education Series programs designed just for them at the Orlando theme park from May 25 through June 30, and registration is open through May 1. Girls Unite offers educational activities in the areas of leadership (dream), science & technology (act), and conservation (change) that are tailored to grade levels and give participants a taste of a different Disney park for each course.

Daisies and Brownies can choose from "Leadership of Walt Disney and the Disney Animation Process" at Hollywood Studios; "Foundations of Physics" at the Magic Kingdom; or "Observation Skills and Animal Behavior" at Animal Kingdom. Juniors and Cadettes can learn about "Personal Branding and Character Building" at Hollywood Studios; "Use of Sound and Light to Create Magic in Theme Park Attractions" at the Magic Kingdom; and "Ocean Conservation" through the eyes of a Sea Turtle at Epcot. Seniors and Ambassadors can opt for "Disney Company Leadership Strategies and Entrepreneurship" at Epcot; "Use of Sound and Light to Create Magic in Theme Park Attractions" at the Magic Kingdom; and "Conservation for Community Planning" at Animal Kingdom. (Grade requirements are strictly enforced for the programs.)

In addition to the courses, which each last 2.5 to 3 hours, social opportunities are offered for Girl Scouts to meet and make friends with other troops. The Kick-Off Sing-Along Dinner takes place at 7 p.m. May 25 and 26 on the set of Lights! Motors! Action! at Hollywood Studios and includes a buffet dinner and character meet-and-greets.

On 10 dates during the month-long celebration, Scouts and their families also can choose to enjoy a private dessert party, the Sweets and Swaps Social, at Epcot with a special viewing location for IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth, the nightly fireworks show.

Scouts can create their own travel packages that range from three to six days from the educational programming and social events at http://bitly.com/GirlsUnite. Pricing for all events includes a 2013 participation patch for each Scout. Discounted hotel rooms are available at Pop Century and Port Orleans resorts for these events, though Scouts are not required to stay on Disney property.

Florida Scouts have the option of selecting a one-day package with just a single course, or with the dinner or dessert party. Annual passes and cast member passes are not valid for admission to any of the Girl Scout events.
