More on Lunar New Year at Disney California Adventure:

  • In 2024, we celebrate the Year of the Dragon. The Chinese zodiac calendar plays a significant role in shaping the traditions, holidays and foods enjoyed in Asian communities all over the globe.
  • Guests can once again meet with Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse in their festive attire, as well as Mulan and Mushu.
  • The centerpiece of the celebration is “Mulan’s Lunar New Year Procession,” a vibrant performance hosted by Mulan and Mushu, that features dozens of spirited parade performers as they honor family, friendship, and the potential for a fortune-filled new year.
  • As part of the Lunar New Year celebration at Disney California Adventure, two new characters from Pixar’s Turning Red have debuted in the San Francisco area near Ariel’s Undersea Adventure – Meilin Lee and Ming Lee.
  • There are also plenty of treats and eats across the whole of the Disneyland Resort for guests to try. From returning favorites, like the Mickey-shaped Hot Dog Bun and Garlic Noodles, to can’t-miss new additions, such as the Fried Lemongrass Chicken Dumplings and Peach Basil Collins, guests will not be going hungry during their day of celebrating the Lunar New Year.
  • One of the favorite offerings during the Lunar New Year celebrations at Disney California Adventure has returned, and guests gather around Paradise Bay every night before World of Color – ONE, with the Hurry Home preshow.
