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

Cub Scout: Faith

Cub Scout: Faith

During your Walt Disney World vacation, your scout will have the opportunity to practice his faith as you plan for your vacation, while traveling to WDW, dining at the restaurants, and visiting the parks.

Throughout the Cub Scout ranks, there are many Faith goals built into the adventures including

  • Beginning to strengthen their faith together with other family members
  • Learning about individuals who have demonstrated fellowship, and creating plans to help us develop characteristics that will benefit our community
  • Learning about what duty to God means to you and your family.
  • Observing different ways a person can be reverent
  • Practicing one’s religion—walking the “footsteps”—shows reverence and duty to God.
  • Religious freedom is one of the founding principles of our country, and Scouting honors that freedom.
  • Showing our duty to God by participating in service projects designed to help a neighbor or community organization
  • We should show reverence for those of great faith who came before us.
  • With their adult partner, discovering their family’s faith
  • Worshipping together to strengthen our faith in God
A Scout is reverent.

      Church Services at Disney?

      Church Services at Disney?


      Would your family like to incorporate family worship and church services into your vacation planning? While Disney does not regularly offer on property church services, there are a variety of ways your scouting family may worship while on vacation.

      Attend a local church service

      An excellent choice would be Trinity Christian Center, a non-denominational, Bible believing fellowship of Christians, which meets in the Theater of Life (inside the Temple building) in the center of the park. Services begin at 10:30 AM.  Please note: The Holy Land Experience exhibits are closed on Sundays.

      A list of area churches and denominations is available here.

      Private family worship

      While on vacation, consider having private family worship time. A simple private service may include reading from the Bible, singing a favorite family hymn and prayer.

      In your Disney resort room, you will find a Bible placed by Gideons International, each member of the family could take turns sharing their favorite Bible verses.

      If your vacation time happens while your scout is completing their faith core adventure, consider using this workbook to plan a simple service with a scouting twist. Please note the size of the workbook and only print pages as needed.

      Faith Core Adventure requirements:

      During the Holidays

      Disney traditionally offers church services in the Fantasia Ballroom at Disney’s Contemporary Resort for Easter and Christmas.

      There are usually three services, a Catholic Mass at 8:00 a.m. and 10:15 a.m and a Protestant service at 9:00 a.m. Please check with your resort concierge to verify times and locations.
