Celebrate Asian American, Native Hawaiian, Pacific Islander month at the Disneyland Resort!
The Emporium on Main Street USA will have a window display in honor of Children’s Day. This Holiday is celebrated by many cultures, but the window will pay homage to the Japanese Children’s Day Celebrated yearly on May 5th. Families will display Koinobori also known as the ‘Carp Streamers’ to symbolize determination and success and ornamental Kabuto helmets represent wishes for strength and vitality. The window will also display games from other Asian, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander that were discovered in the Victorian-era such as Sungka (Philippines), traditional Indian Chess, Mahjong (China), Konane (Hawaiian Islands and Polynesia), Nei-Pat-Ko-No (Korea), and Kendama (Japan).

This is only a few items that can be found around the resort. Honestly, being Filipino I was excited when they brought Lumpia’s to Disneyland. They are one of my favorite dishes and I don’t have to make them which makes them taste that much better. What is your favorite dish?
