The Disneyland Resort is celebrating Lunar New Year!
Starting January 20 – February 15, 2023, when you visit the Disneyland Resort, you will be able to enjoy Lunar New Year in the Parks as they pay tribute to Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese cultures. In Chinese culture, the rabbi has the unique characteristic of waiting for an opportune moment and then leaping into action. The rabbit also symbolizes luck. This year Disney will also recognize the Vietnamese zodiac calendar during the Lunar New Year, which marks 2023 as the year of the Cat.
The centerpiece of the celebration will be “Mulan’s Lunar New Year Procession,” a vibrant performance hosted by Mulan and Mushu. It will feature does of spirited parade performers as they honor family, friendship, and the potential for a fortune-filled new year. This year two new Lunar New Year marketplaces will arrive in the park. Bamboo Blessing and Wrapped with Love. They will join the returning marketplaces: Lucky 8 Lantern, Prosperity Bar and Buns, Red Spice Traders, and Longevity Noodle Co. with the return of the popular Sip and Savor Pass.
Hurry Home – Lunar New Year Celebration will also return. This heartwarming nighttime water show tells the tale of a little lantern’s quest to reunite with family for the annual celebration of good luck and fortune. While at the park, guests can celebrate with family-friendly fun, including Chinese calligraphy demonstrations and the Lucky Wishes Wall, where guests can share their hopes for the future/year ahead. Additional treats and festival items will be available at Paradise Garden Grill and Lucky Fortune Cookery.
Raya from Taya dn the Last Dragon will also return to the parks in time for the celebration. You can find her under the canopy deep in the heart of tRedwood Creek Challenge Trail. I am so excited to see what new foods the festival will bring and all the STUNNING decorations around the park. This is also one of my favorite celebrations.
