Gary Sinise Foundation holds Snowball Express at Walt Disney World

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — For the first time since 2019, the Gary Sinise Foundation commenced its Snowball Express event at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom park Tuesday morning.


The Snowball Express is meant to be a five-day retreat that serves the children of fallen military heroes, surviving spouses, and their families.

Almost 3,000 people participated, as they walked along Main Street, U.S.A toward Cinderella’s Castle.

Once they arrived at the castle, a special ceremony was held on stage with the children of the fallen soldiers, where they delivered emotional messages.
