Celebrate Lunar New Year Starting Today at Disney California Adventure Park
by Michael Ramirez, Editorial Content Director, Disneyland Resort
From now through February 17, experience Asian culture through inspired food, music and entertainment—all to welcome another year of good fortune. Here’s what to check out:
Watch “Mulan’s Lunar New Year Procession,” a bright and bold parade hosted by Mulan and her faithful dragon, Mushu. As a special treat for the Year of the Pig, the Three Little Pigs (Fiddler, Fifer and Practical) join the procession. A troupe of Chinese performers bring additional dancers, martial artists and drummers to add extra excitement. The procession extends from Pixar Pier to Paradise Gardens Park.
Taste your way through four Asian marketplaces offering delightful foods inspired by Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese cultures: Longevity Noodle Co., Lucky 8 Lantern, Prosperity Bao & Buns and Red Dragon Spice Traders. A Sip and Savor Pass is also available for adventurous palates interested in tasting six culinary creations. Check out our Foodie Guide to Lunar New Year here.
Pick up commemorative merchandise featuring designs inspired by the different cultures of Asia.
Enjoy complimentary arts and crafts with local artisans, including Chinese calligraphy, paper lantern making and face painting.
