Scouting WDW: Cub & Boy Scout Ideas for your Disney Vacation

If you are on the Cub Scout or Boy Scout Trail with your son,
if you find yourself traveling to Walt Disney World Resort & Parks,
if you like to accomplish two (or three) goals with one activity, then you will enjoy Scouting at Walt Disney World!

As a Scout Mom and a Disney enthusiast,  I have included scouting in our Disney vacations since my scout was a little Tiger Cub (first grade). Volunteering as the Assistant Den Leader throughout his Cub Scout years and now as Boy Scout Troop Committee Member, I appreciate the values of scouting, while encouraging the fun in the accomplishment. Walt Disney World Resort & Parks is a magical playground ripe for creating lasting family and scouting memories!

Rank Requirements & Electives

The first steps along the Boy Scout Trail are intended to open up the world to a young scouts inquisitive mind.  Rank advancement through the scouting program encourages scouts and their families to engage in a variety of activities together. Here are a few activities scouts may complete – the Disney way…

It is easy to earn or reinforce the achievements and electives your scout is working so hard to accomplish!  If you are already going to Disney – it is likely you will plan to do many of these activities anyway – so mark them down, let your den leader know and earn those beads, badges and patches while scouting with the mouse!

Born and raised in the south, I now live in central New Jersey. My days are filled with homeschooling, reading, and ministry work. My son and I are active members of our local church and enjoy camping with the Boy Scouts of America.

We believe every day is a day to celebrate and if you visit our kitchen, you will find us putting sprinkles on everything from pancakes to ice cream! Between baseball games and scouting trips, we enjoy dreaming about our next Disney vacation.
