FAQs — Answers to frequently asked questions
How/where can we purchase tickets?
Can we pick our seats?
No. Tickets will be assigned based on ticket category, on a first-come, first-served basis. We pledge to abide by the Girl Scout Law, doing our best to be "honest and fair."
Can we purchase tickets online?
The only way to order is by using the paper form; we are not able provide an online registration system at this time. (The Girl Scout database is not set up to handle the complicated process of assigning individual seats.)
Can we submit order forms by email?
For security reasons, we cannot accept forms by email.(Payment must accompany all orders, and our system is set up to block emails containing credit card information.)
Can we order Terrace ($18) and Loge/Lower Level ($25-30) tickets on the same form?
Yes. However, different priced seats will be in separate areas of the building. Please be certain to have enough seats in each group for proper girl/adult ratio.
If a girl(s) join our troop close to Cookie Rally, how do we add additional seats to our order?
Unfortunately, we do not have the ability to add additional tickets to an order once it is processed. If you need to purchase tickets for more girls, you must use another form. Seating for the new order will be located in a different area; please remember to include an adult chaperone.
Is financial assistance available?
Yes, financial assistance is available for the Terrace Level ($18) seating. It is limited to Girl Scout members only. Requests due by Thursday, Jan. 15 to allow time for processing.
How do we submit a request for financial assistance?
When submitting the order, mark the number of paid tickets and the number requesting financial assistance in the appropriate spaces. Attach a separate sheet of paper with a list of names of girls requesting financial assistance. We will contact you with any questions.
What’s the latest we can order tickets to receive them by mail?
Place orders at council stores by Thursday, Jan. 8, 5:30 p.m. in order to receive by mail. Mailed and faxed forms must be received (not postmarked) that date.
How will we receive our event package (tickets, parking pass, etc.)?
We will mail event packets using the US Postal Service delivery confirmation service.
How do we get our tickets if we order after Jan. 8, 5:31 p.m.?
By pick-up only on Friday, Jan. 23 between 8-9 a.m. or noon–4 p.m. at the reception desk of our Balboa Campus.
Why do we have to pick up tickets purchased after Jan. 8 at the Balboa Campus on Jan. 23?
We want to be certain everyone has their tickets on show day! It takes time to process payments, assign tickets, and properly pack all the items included in the event package. If we sent by mail, it would take additional time to enter packages into the confirmation delivery system, possibly delaying delivery until after the event.
Can we pick up tickets on the day of show at Valley View Casino Center?
No. We have arranged event packet pick-up at our Balboa Campus because the free or discounted parking is included in the ticket cost, and every car needs to have a parking pass before they enter the parking lot.
ACE Parking, which oversees the lot, requires that every car must either present a parking pass or pay full price for parking ($15/vehicle), no exceptions. They/we will not reimburse parking payments.
What happens if our tickets are lost, damaged or misplaced?
To help ensure delivery, please be sure to complete your mailing address label completely and legibly. Girl Scouts San Diego is not responsible for misdirected mail due to illegible mailing label. If you ordered your tickets by Thursday, Jan. 8, and don’t receive them by Saturday, Jan. 17, email email@example.com.
Please treat your tickets same as cash; they cannot be reissued if they are lost, damaged or misplaced.
Caution: tickets exposed to high heat (left in the sun on the car dashboard) will turn black and become unreadable and therefore unusable. Protect your tickets and keep them in a safe place.
What is the Cookie Rally?
The Girl Scouts San Diego Cookie Rally is our largest councilwide annual gathering, serving 4,000 girls and their families. This fun event inspires and prepares Girl Scouts, leaders and family members for the upcoming cookie program, and gives girls the chance to experience Girl Scout sisterhood! Performers — including Girl Scout San Diego’s 2014 top sellers — showcase the benefits of participating in the cookie program during an energetic pep rally and expo (“cookie museum”) followed by a Disney On Ice show.
What is the cookie program walkthrough museum?
Entitled There’s Something Amazing Inside, the Cookie Rally museum is a display area highlights the 5 Skills — goal setting, decision-making, money management, people skills and business ethics — as well best booth practices, cookie program rewards and our Operation Thin Mint® program.
We live in Imperial Valley. What are our cookie launch options?
Imperial Valley Girl Scout volunteers are holding their own, special Cookie Kickoff on Saturday, Jan. 10. Other service units throughout the region are also holding kickoffs; see below.
What’s the difference between the Cookie Rally and Cookie Kickoff events?
The Cookie Rally is a councilwide event, while the Cookie Kickoffs are regional gatherings hosted by area service units. Both are designed to launch the cookie season and educate participants about the Girl Scout Cookie Program. To learn more about Kickoffs, contact your service unit.
Can we attend both the Cookie Rally and our Service Unit Cookie Kickoff?
Absolutely! These events complement each other; service unit Cookie Kickoffs offer girls a hands-on opportunity to practice cookie program skills, while the council wide Cookie Rally is a troop and family event. The high-energy pep rally builds excitement about cookies — with the added bonus of a thrilling, professional ice show!
What time should we arrive at the Cookie Rally?
Arrive to allow enough time to park and pass through security. Doors open at 5 p.m., and our Cookie Rally begins at 5:40 p.m.
Who receives patches?
Everyone’s a Girl Scout on this big day! All attendees — including parents and siblings — receive a patch.
What should we wear?
Be a cool cat and show your Girl Scout spirit! We encourage girls to wear their uniforms or purr-fect cheetah style, just like our 2015 cookie mascot Chelsea the Cheetah. Create a special troop outfit or costume to help keep your group together in the crowd.
Is this a Girl Scout show?
The Cookie Rally portion of the evening is open to Girl Scouts and families only; the ice show is open to the general public.
When does the event end?
