Leadership Conference in DisneyWorld (PHOTOS)
Over Martin Luther King Day Weekend, Girl Scout Troop #6260 was one of the many troops in Florida for a Leadership Conference at DisneyWorld. All the troops flew out on Thursday and enjoyed spending time together that night. All the excitement and anticipation from earning the money was let out that day.
On Friday morning, the festivities began. Our troop went to a session called “Managing Your Personal Brand” at Hollywood Studios. We went into the parks at 8 a.m. before anyone else was there. It was magical to see the parks empty. It was so quiet and serene, unlike during the day when all the people come in. We learned about how the way you dress and act affects the way you are perceived. Our tour guide did a wonderful job of engaging us. At the end of the session, we were able to ride the Rockin’ Roller Coaster and skip the lines.
We had the rest of the day off, and we decided to spend it in the parks. Each girl on the Leadership Conference had a Park Hopper Pass, which enabled us to go to all of the parks at any time the three days we were there.
On Saturday morning, we went to a session called “Photo Storytelling” at Epcot. Our tour guide taught us how to use different camera angles to tell a story through photographs. We practiced taking pictures using the new techniques we were taught, and then we got a ride on Spaceship Earth, which is an 18 story ride that tells the history of the world. We visited all the countries in Epcot and took pictures to treasure forever.
We had the rest of that day off too, and we went to some of the other parks. There was no program scheduled for Sunday, so we stayed out late in Magic Kingdom. On Sunday night, all of the Girl Scouts attended a catered dinner at Epcot. They had food from the different countries represented for us to try. We had seats on a balcony right by the water, and we watched the laser lights show. It was a perfect ending to a magical trip.
