Marine Corps. Staff Sergeant Mark Plummer, who earned a purple heart in Fallujah, Iraq, will be recognized by Disneyland Resort and SYLVANIA as he and his family “flip the switch” on myriad lights blanketing “it’s a small world” Holiday. The popular attraction will transform into a visual wonderland and officially launch the holiday season at Disneyland Resort.

Disneyland Resort and SYLVANIA partner annually to bring the magic of the holiday season to one special family. The Plummer family was selected through their affiliation with Operation Homefront, which provides financial assistance to service members and wounded warriors, making this ceremony and “day of play” at Disneyland especially bright for Staff Sgt. Plummer, his wife, and two children.
