Sum of All Thrills

Sum of All Thrills

Scouts can build their own theme park ride!

Visit Epcots Innovention building and stop by Sum of All Thrills.  This is where scouts and their ride partner will take a turn in the Designer Lab creating their one-of-a-kind ride experience. Using an interactive touchscreen design panel, scouts can add drops, barrel rolls, twists and turns using their math, science and engineering know how. During the testing phase, adjust height, velocity and follow other recommendations to modify your ride experience based on mild to wild settings.

Once your ride design has been locked into the system, head up a short flight of stairs while your ride specifications are programmed into a 4-D robotic simulator. Buckle-up and get ready to feel every bump, twist and drop of the ultimate ride you just created – complete with the realism of high-definition video, audio and motion.

Want a little more Disney magic? After your ride, you’ll receive a card with your one-of-a-kind ride experience program. Visit MathMovesU to replay your ride on your home pc. Not visiting the parks soon enough? The MathMovesU site also has an online Design Your Own Ride and Game experience scouts may want to check out.

Wild About Safety

Wild About Safety

Wild About Safety

Have you heard? Timon and Pumbaa are Wild About Safety. Safety is part of their problem-free philosophy and they want it to be part of yours too.

Safety is an important part of the Scouting experience. The best way to stay safe in the outdoors is to avoid getting into trouble in the first place. That requires planning, training, leadership, good judgment, and accepting responsibility.


Timon & Pumbaa teach kids how to demonstrate good character traits, such as honesty, kindness, and taking responsibility for one’s actions!

Disney’s Wild About Safety: Timon and Pumbaa Safety Smart® On the Go! Timon & Pumbaa teach kids about the four Safety Smart® points of safe travel–slow down, pay attention, use proper equipment, don’t distract–and how to apply these points to everyday transportation!


Disney’s Wild About Safety website shares tips and hints to help your vacation be a safe and magical experience. With games, videos, coloring sheets and more, Timon and Pumbaa are fun to learn with at home and while visiting the parks.

Here are a few of their THEME PARK SAFETY TIPS
The Disney Parks are filled with fun rides and attractions, and proper planning and research can help make sure your visit is as safe as can be.

  • Wear comfortable clothing and shoes. Light-colored clothes are best to help reflect the sun’s rays during warmer weather, and layers are best during those cooler months.
  • Wear UV protective sunglasses and a hat with a wide brim for blocking the sun.
  • Have fun in the sun, don’t get overdone. Don’t forget to apply sun block every two hours.
  • Apply sunscreen that protects against both UVA & UVB rays whenever you’re outdoors:
    • Adults should use sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher
    • Children should use SPF 30 or higher
  • Don’t wait too late to hydrate. Hydrate before you get going and before you get thirsty. It’s a good idea to drink 4-6 ounces of water every 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Test your child to make sure he/she knows how to contact you if they get lost. Put a note in his/her pocket with phone numbers and names to contact.
  • Designate a meeting place and time, just in case the group gets separated for any reason.

Want a little more Disney magic? Take the Timon and Pumbaa Safety Challenge at Animal Kingdom Park, stop in at guest services and ask for your copy. Safety Cards are also available to collect throughout the park. And if you visit Animal Kingdom Lodge and ask for a Wild About Safety Fun Book, with word searches, scrambles, and coloring pages, this book is a perfect for filling time while waiting in lines.
