Youth Education Adventure Series By Sara Garoutte

Guest Blog submitted by Sara Garoutte


There is so much to learn, and know, about learning with Disney! From Kingdom Keepers Quests to Girl Scouts programs, there’s a lot to see and do within the “Y.E.S” programs at Disney World and Disneyland Resort. One of the things I’ve been planning as a Girl Scout Troop leader, is trying to make a fun trip to Disney World for my troop possible. With Disney’s Youth Education Series it is VERY possible. There are so many different options to explore. Anything from Energy and Waves Physics, Marine Biology, to my personal favorite Mouse Quest! These fun, educational experiences are an additional cost to you park passes and accommodations. However, through this program, the cost is greatly reduced. And yes, there are programs within the Youth Education Series that you can do individually.

Some of the Disney World Group Programs for groups of 10 or more:

Backstage at La Nouba™ by Cirque du Soleil® – Get an inside look at the international phenomenon that is Cirque du Soleil® as you go backstage at La Nouba™ and learn what it takes to bring this dazzling spectacle to the stage

Discovering Marine Life Conservation – Explore diverse marine environments with educators from The Seas with Nemo & Friends and learn about marine conservation and what you can do to help protect ocean life.

Discovering the American Spirit- From the Wild West to the Declaration of Independence, students are transported back in time to experience American history through the stories and attractions in Liberty Square and Frontierland.

Disney Leadership Strategies – Investigate proven management strategies employed by The Walt Disney Company, see how leadership spurs innovation, and promote personal and professional success.

Energy and Waves Physics Lab 101 – Embark on an interactive adventure where you’ll explore the physics of light and sound through select attractions at Magic Kingdom® Park and examine the wide range of the electromagnetic spectrum.

Experiencing Synergy in Science – Investigate the synergy at work in Epcot® attractions, where creativity and technology merge to create world-class entertainment. Then learn to recognize synergy among the tools and systems that help us in our daily life.

Exploring Careers in the Zoological Sciences – Journey behind the scenes and on select attractions to explore “wild” careers in zoology and discover the innovative ways that Disney staff promote animal care and well‐being.

Exploring Disney’s Animation History – Discover the history, innovation and production processes behind animating some of the most beloved Disney films and characters

This isn’t even a complete list of available adventures your group could embark on with Disney! I didn’t even know this was available until I dug around for my girls. I’m hopeful to be able to impart more information as I continue to navigate this area of Disney and am so happy that my girls can combine their love of Girl Scouts with their love of Disney World! We’re really excited to combine camp and the happiest place on earth!
