On the evening of November 12, we officially kicked off Holidays at the Disneyland Resort with the ceremonial lighting of “it’s a small world” Holiday! Retired United States Marine Corps Sergeant Juan Valdez – a Purple Heart recipient – along with his wife Christen and service dog Midas, joined Disney pals Mickey Mouse and Pluto to turn on the more than 300,000 twinkling lights at the famous Disneyland park attraction. Take a look back at this special moment in the video below.

Join us for Holidays at the Disneyland Resort, now through January 6, 2016!
