and Creative Ways To Divide Into Teams For A Disney Park Scavenger
Ok, so you have your Disney park scavenger hunt all ready to go.
Perhaps you created it yourself, or took advantage of the different
ones that we offer to ensure that you get to join in on the fun.
Either way, at least for larger groups, its considered best
to break up the participants into smaller groups or teams to ensure
that everyone gets to participate. Forming the groups can be a
great activity by itself! Here are some fun ideas to consider
as you decide how to form the teams for your adventure hunt (each
idea assumes that youve already decided how many participants
will be on each team)
a hat. Ahead of time, divide your group size by the number
of participants youd like on each team. For example,
if you have 6 participants and you want 3 people on each
team, then you know youll need 2 teams. Now, in this
example, pick two different Disney stories and write three
characters from each story on separate pieces of paper.
When its time to form the teams, have each participant
blindly pick a character paper from a hat. Explain that
the three characters from the same story will form one team,
theyll have fun figuring out which stories were chosen
and which characters/participants will be joining them on
a hat. Similar to the above, write down different rides/attractions
from the park on pieces of paper. The attractions from the
same land will form a single team in the same way that the
Disney characters from the same story did in the above example.
Call out like a character.
Begin by choosing a few characters with fun, recognizable voices.
An example would be Goofys GORSH! Write down
on separate pieces of paper the different characters with their
corresponding saying. Make sure there are enough of
each character so that all of the Goofys will be on
the same team. Once every participant has chosen a character,
they must all, in their best character voice, say their saying
so that all of the Goofys find each other, etc. This is
a lot of fun to watch, so have your video camera waiting!
If you are planning
on pairing up participants, gather enough pieces of paper, enough
for one per participant. On half of the papers write a different
Disney story (no duplicates.) On the other pieces, write one character
from each story. Every participant will then draw one piece of
paper from your collection. Allow everyone time to ask around
to all of the other participants to figure out who their other
partner is, matching the character to the story they are from!
a more rambunctious group (i.e. teens!) consider this fun
way to form teams. Choose team captains in advance for each
team (preferably the ones that know the park the best.)
Have them turn around so that they have their backs to the
others. Once they are looking away, have each team member
take off one shoe and put it in a single box. Now bring
the box to the team captains and (while not looking at the
team members lest they cheat) have them select their team
members based solely on the shoes in the box.) Once theyve
selected their shoes, they can turn around and see which
teams members own the shoes becoming their team mates! (Hint:
Make sure to not let on about the shoes until AFTER the
team captains have turned around or they might be tempted
to get a look at everyones shoes first!)
If you have an even number of participants/teams (i.e. three teams
of four people or five teams of two exactly, etc.) then this can
be a lot of fun
Think of a number of Disney characters equal
to the number of participants on each team. On separate sheets of
paper, write down each character the number of times equal to the
number of teams. For example, if you have three teams of four. Choose
FOUR characters (for example, Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and Donald.)
Write each name three times (equal to the number of teams.) You
should have 12 pieces of paper. Now, have each participant blindly
choose a paper/character from a hat. The participants must form
teams on their own making sure that ONE OF EACH character are on
each team. Once the team is composed, give them their list and theyll
be off and ready to go!
