A team of Cast Members from Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort assisted Strickland in serving more than 600 meals.

“It’s very rewarding being able to interact with the individuals we help because they are so grateful for us taking time to spend a holiday with them,” said Rodolfo (Rudy) Fernandez, a Disney Guest Service manager.
