Dreamlifts

Dreamlifts

There are so many chronically ill and physically challenged children that dream of going to Disney World. To try to meet these growing requests of these special young people, Sunshine Foundation provides Dreamlifts, a one day excursion to Disney or other Orlando theme parks. Sunshine charters a plane and takes groups of about 100 special needs children to spend the day in the #1 most requested destinations. For many of these children they are having two dreams fulfilled: their first time flying and a day at one of Orlando’s theme parks.

Everyone boards the plane in their hometown and just a few hours later they are enjoying a day that will mean tons of fun and exciting memories at that special place! Volunteers come out to lift the children on the plane and share in the excitement!

Since Sunshine Foundation started its Dreamlift program, over 99 chartered planes have taken over 5,000 children to Florida from cities across the United States. This program gives groups of chronically ill, physically challenged and abused children that special day in their favorite place… Universal Studios or Disney World!
