Once again this year, we’re bringing our popular Happy Lunar New Year celebration to Disney California Adventure park. From February 19–22, we’ll celebrate the “Year of the Sheep” with a joyous tribute to the Lunar New Year, bringing the Paradise Gardens area of the park to life with music, dancing, vibrant red and gold décor, hanging lanterns and more.
Lunar New Year is a multi-day annual tradition observed within the Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese cultures. For those who celebrate it, it is the customary time to reflect on the past and step into a new life of hope, prosperity and happiness.
To commemorate the occasion, guests of all ages are invited to share in a colorful, enriching experience that includes live performances, kid-friendly activities, a daily procession and special appearances by Mulan and Mushu, along with Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and Chip ‘n’ Dale dressed in their Lunar New Year costumes! You can also look forward to delicious food and event-specific merchandise – including an exclusive T-shirt, pin and set of traditional red envelopes.
This Happy Lunar New Year celebration is going to be filled with joy and community togetherness. It promises to be an event you won’t want to miss!
