Lee Experiences The Galaxy at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

Lee, diagnosed with a severe developmental delay, and his Star Wars-loving family enjoyed all of the thrills Disney’s Hollywood Studios could give them in Orlando, Florida. They battled light sabers, rode all of the incredible rides, and enjoyed the pool and game room there.

Thank you from Lee’s Family

“This trip was so much fun for my family, seeing Lee enjoying his time at the theme parks. As a family who enjoys Star Wars, this area at Disney was Lee and our whole family’s favorite part. To have been able to make lightsabers and ride the rides has been an experience we will forever cherish. Thank you, Sunshine Foundation and donors, for giving our Lee this Dream Trip.” – Lee’s mother, Jessica
