The Sunshine Foundation Dream Village unveiled its newly-remodeled Space Cottage in Davenport, Fla. Thursday, June 20.

Astronaut Jon McBride and Kennedy Space Center’s Spaceman joined multiple Star Wars characters from the 501st Legion for the official grand reopening of the cottage, which features a space shuttle bed, space man sheets, and an autographed wall mural of the shuttle Columbia.

Volunteers, including McBride, Kennedy Space Center, the 501st Legion, and the Sunshine Foundation Cape Atlantic Chapter from Ocean City, NJ offered their time and efforts to make the remodeling of the Space Cottage possible.

Fourteen-year-old Dylan from Henderson, Nev. also attended the ceremony as the first Dream recipient to stay in the new Space Cottage. Dylan, who has been diagnosed with spastic paraplegia, was granted a Dream Come True trip to visit the area’s theme parks through the Sunshine Foundation, which answers the dreams of children living with life-long chronic illnesses, physical challenges or the trauma of abuse.
