Celebrate the Lunar New Year in style with DisneyCategory: Travel
Once again Disney California Adventure is decked out for Lunar New Year. This year’s festivities run from January 21- February 13, 2022 and the event is jammed packed with fun and food!
The “Mulan’s Lunar New Year Procession” parade has a new float with Mulan and Mushu. Take in this event in the evening as the lanterns glow and provide an ethereal mood. The procession is colorful and musical, and gives guests the spirit of Asia, right in the heart of Anaheim.
This event is multicultural and in Downtown Disney a new mural commemorates the holiday from traditional “minwha,” or “painting of the people,” which portray the customs and spirit of everyday life in Korea.
By all means purchase a Sip and Savor Pass so you can taste some of the various – and delicious – food from the different cultures. It’s an additional price but well worth it. Once you get your pass, you do not need to purchase the food. Simply break off a tab from the pass and exchange it for the food or beverage of your choice. There are six tabs on each pass.
Downtown Disney also has merchandise (it is Disney, after all) to help commemorate the holiday. Or simply head to shopDisney.com and purchase items there. They have jerseys for adults and special costumes for the nuiMOs (the small, posable, plush that are loved by kids and adults).
Mickey, Minnie, Tigger, Mulan, Mushu, and the Three Little Pigs can be spotted around the park decked out in their holiday costumes. And making her debut at the Disneyland Resort is Raya (Raya and the Last Dragon).
To enjoy the Lunar New Year celebration and for a limited time this spring, Southern California residents may visit the Disneyland Resort for as little as $67 per day with the purchase of a three-day, one-park per day weekday ticket – available for redemption now through May 26, 2022, subject to park reservation availability.
