Hope I'm not abusing this section of the forum, but I just wanted to take a moment to introduce you to a new site that just went up this morning. Scouting With the Mouse (Scouting with the Mouse - Home Page) is a new site dedicated to all the Scouting requirements that can be met doing Disney stuff both on a Disney vacation and at home. And it's not just for Scouters either.... homeschoolers and parents that are looking for edutainment will enjoy perusing the requirements and finding something their child is interested in and how they can relate it to Disney.
There are many parts of the site that are free including the forums and the chat rooms and perusing the requirements and Disney activities. MouseScouteers (members) get additional benefits too, though. MouseScouteers can:
Save their child's rank and Scouting activities completed data (for their security we only save the child's first name)
Receive, on request, individualized reports based on their child's current rank and Scouting activities completed
Save information regarding their next trip to Disney
Receive a personalized email thirty days before their trip with individualized activity information geared towards each child associated with their MouseScouteer account
Rate the activities on our site so others may learn from their knowledge and opinionsSo what do all these great MouseScouteer benefits cost? A mere $20USD a year. And that's not all. I agree with Walt Disney that we shouldd always try to "plus" it. We also believe, as he did and as Scouting teaches, that we need to give something back to the community. Every quarter Scouting with the Mouse donates one quarter of profits to the Give Kids the World foundation. So if you become a MouseScouteer, not only do you make your searches easier and get detailed, personalized information for sharing the magic of Disney with your children -- you also help another child experience the magic.
But you don't have to become a member to enjoy all the fun. Stop by and check out the forums. Check out the chats. Check out all that we have to offer. I hope you'll use the "contact us" link to give us some feedback on the site. And I hope you'll enjoy yourself. Thanks!
