    Our Girl Scout troop would like to use their earned cookie money on a trip to WDW. There will be 2 adults and 13 10yr-11yr old girls going. Is there anything that can be done for group tickets, non-profits, hotel/room stay, etc. to help with the price?

    Hiya Dustin!

    Welcome to planDisney! As a Cub Scout mom and Den Leader I understand the hard work that goes into fundraising. In fact, I have a box of chocolate bars waiting to be sold on my kitchen counter. I'm super impressed that your troop has raised enough for a trip to Walt Disney World Resort! 

    Group bookings with Walt Disney World Resort tend to be for very large groups such as large organizations or companies. There is a possible pathway for your youth to plan something with the Disney Imagination Campus. There is an option for Student Group Tickets that requires a minimum of 10 students per group to participate. I don't know if you will qualify but I would reach out to them. If you plan on having a lot of Disney Resort Hotel rooms booked (10 or more) then I would also reach out to Disney Destination Gatherings. They could assist with your group planning needs and would probably be able to answer any questions you may have. 

    If you find that neither of the above options will work with your group needs or group size then you have two options. Reach out directly to the lovely Cast Members at Disney Resort Hotel Reservations and make your bookings and reservations yourself or find a local travel agent who is a Disney Authorized Disney Travel Agent or Vacation Planner. There is no list I can provide you with any references but when you find someone make sure to ask if they are a Disney Authorized Travel Agent. Using either option does not cost you anything. I love to handle my reservations and book directly on the website and have planned trips for up to 13 people. I kept an eye on the Special Offers page to find a deal that would work for my family and found one that was a good value. I suggest you do the same! 

    Also, your group makeup makes it hard to just pick a group of Resort Rooms as there has to be an adult in each room with the minors. The best option is to consider a 2 Bedroom Deluxe Villa that can fit 8 to 9 people comfortably. These villas have full kitchens with laundry units that will make it feel like home. Another option that your scouts may like is The Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort. Each campsite can house about 10 people whether in tents or an RV or trailer. You will have to secure your tents, RV, or trailer but it will be pretty cost-effective and a fun scout experience. If you want rustic charm but not as much nature then look at The Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort which can fit up to 6 people. Disney's Art of Animation Resort can fit 6 people as well. I use the word "people" as Walt Disney World sets room capacity using the word "adults" as babies under the age of 3 are not included usually in that room capacity count. Your little ones that are 10 years old are counted in that room capacity.  

    I hope this helps and that your troop has a magical time! Congrats to your troop for reaching their goals!

    Happy planning!
