Disney Trip 2022
Saturday April 9 - Saturday April 16, 2022
Troop 78 is Heading Back to Walt Disney World
After missing the past 2 years Troop 78 is going back to Disney World. The troop has been going to Florida every Spring Break since before Disney opened. Disney World opened in 1972 and the Troop made its first trip to Disney in 1973. It has been a long 2 years of Covid but it is time to get the tradition back up and running this year?
When are we planning on going? April 9th to April 16th
What are we going to do? Spend four days at a park each day, we will visit each of the four theme parks (Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, and Epcot). During your down time you can relax and swim at the Fort Wilderness campground at any time.
Who can go?
Scouts and leaders who are registered and active in the troop,
Scouts must have attended (or worked) at summer camp at least one week in 2021, and
Scouts who are or will be 13 years of age by March 17th, and who are responsible enough to visit the theme parks on their own with a small group of other Scouts as determined by their parents and the Scoutmaster.
The cost to go on the trip to Disney? $825 plus spending money
What do I get for the $825 cost? Round trip bus transportation on the luxurious troop bus, food and meals, camping fees, a Four day Disney pass, adventures of conquering all of the mountains in Disney, visit Mickey and Minnie, and create some magical memories. While doing all of this you will learn the value of money, how to read a transportation map, learn how to use public transportation, time management, and so many more life skills that you won’t realize.
How do I sign up for this awesome annual trip? Handouts will be given out during a troop meeting in October and they will also be posted on the troop web site.
Once you reserve a spot you will receive further instructions regarding departure times, what to pack, spending money, bus preparation etc.
