Give a gift that really shines! If you are seeking a unique and meaningful gift idea that supports a cause, consider adopting a star in a loved one’s name.

Each of the stars in our Adopt-A-Star Program is visible from Orlando at some point throughout the year and bright enough to be seen in the night sky.
