Disney with my Girl Scouts

WE MADE IT!  That’s right my Girl Scout troop made it to Disney. After two years of planning and fundraising we raised over $5,000 and made it to Walt Disney World!

What an amazing trip is all I have to say. Four days, four parks, 8 scouts awesome adventure.

Here are some highlight pictures

The Troop participated in a Youth Education Series program that Disney sponsors specifically to learn how Walt Disney took his drawings and made them into movies.  They showed us the progression of movie making, the movie making process from storyboard music to production and even taught us how to draw Mickey by an imagineer.

Overall it was an amazing experience, some girls tried rides or foods they never would have.  I challenged all of them to try a new Japanese candy from the Department store in Epcot.  We saw the Mickeys Not So Scary Haloween parade and wore costumes and stayed up until midnight on the clock at Cinderellas Castle.

To say they were excited is an understatement. Of course we met a bunch of other Girl Scouts, none had heard of the YES program before.

So where are we off to next?  Niagara Falls!

Im specifically showing you all of this because for 8 years they asked to go to Disney and every year I said no.  When we found the YES program the girls set their goal, they worked REALLY hard and achieved it.  It wasn’t a perfect trip, but it was a huge accomplishment for these young ladies!  Set goals for yourself! Know that it won’t be perfect and it will be a struggle, but believe in yourself and make it happen!

I believe you can do it!  Have a Magical Day!
