Gary Sinise And Snowball Express Bring Families Of Fallen Heroes To Walt Disney World
The holidays can be an especially challenging time for grieving families, Snowball Express hosts a week long trip for them each year which enables them to experience some holiday joy at Walt Disney World. It also gives them the chance to meet and bond with other families that have lost a loved one in service.

Today begins our GSF Snowball Express #14. Over 1000 Gold Star Children travel with surviving parent or guardian, over 1,750 in all, via our travel partner @americanair to Disney World as part of our @garysinisefoundation Snowball Express program. This charter left Los Angeles this morning with 91 kids, 176 in all, and I got to take these photos with them before they left. I’ll join up in a few days. Have fun kids! We love you!
The Snowball Express became an official Gary Sinise Foundation program in 2017, serving the children of fallen military heroes. It provides fun, community-driven events and beneficial resources all year long. For more information on how you can help visit The Gary Sinise Foundation.
