Disney Family Tree & Crest

Disney Family Tree & Crest

Scouts who need to complete a family tree for an adventure elective requirement or a Merit Badge requirement should start with their name and include at least two additional generations. While completing a family tree, parents and scouts can discuss the history, traditions, and culture of their family heritage.

My Family Tree for the Core Value: Faith

Faith means having inner strength and confidence based on trust in a higher power. Understanding one’s family tree, ancestors, and heritage brings stories to life of the strength and confidence of our family members. It also tells of their belief and trust in a higher power to help bring them safely to the United States. In years past, many immigrants traveled by boat. What faith they had in that boat that would change their lives!  Courtesy April 2013 Cub Scout Meeting Guide

Dining at Disney – Have a Family Picnic!

Dining at Disney – Have a Family Picnic!

Dining at Disney is a fun part of your vacation.  From Character Meals to 5 Star Restaurants and everything in between, deciding where to dine at Disney is a major part of planning your WDW vacation.

It’s easy to plan a family picnic experience at Disney.  From your Resort Hotel food court, just grab some simple fare, like a sandwich or salad and head to the nearest open grassy area or pool side table.  Many guests purchase groceries on their way into Disney, stocking up on bread, sandwich fixin’s, fruit, water and such.  Bring a card or board game to your picnic area or a football to toss with your scout and you have the makings of a memorable family picnic – Disney style!

Want a little more Disney magic?  Experience the ultimate Disney World picnic at Mickey’s Backyard BBQ in the Campsites of Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort.
