The bus will depart from the arches at 6 p.m. and head to the local Toys R Us where students are asked to purchase and donate a toy that they buy with their own money. For their generosity, STAR will then take them to the Olive Garden and treat them to dinner. The bus will return to the arches at approximately 9 p.m. Sign up to participate for free in the Box Office and Expeditions. Guests are welcome to ride the bus, but must purchase their own toy and dinner.
