Dreams really do come true.

More than 1,000 kids of fallen soldiers got to experience the magic of Walt Disney World thanks to actor Gary Sinise over the weekend.

On Saturday, the “Forrest Gump” star flew around 1,700 people to Orlando, Fla. for a five-day vacation, in partnership with American Airlines, to thank them for their family member’s service in the American military.

The 64-year-old took to Twitter to share the heartwarming charitable trip with his followers, posting four photos of various beneficiaries of the outreach program with the Gary Sinise Foundation.

“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 @GarySiniseFound Snowball Express program,” Sinise wrote.
