Get ready to ring in the Year of the Pig for Lunar New Year at Disneyland. The multi-cultural celebration is jam-packed with special events you won’t want to miss for a very lucky start to the year ahead.
For 24 days, guests at Disney California Adventure Park will be treated to live entertainment and musical performances, including Mulan’s Lunar New Year Procession. The colorful parade led by Mulan and her trusty sidekick, Mushu, will feature appearances by The Three Little Pigs, Goofy dressed as the “god of Good Fortune” and Chip ‘n’ Dale donning red vests. A troupe of Chinese performers with dancers and martial artists will also join the procession that will wind from Pixar Pier to Paradise Gardens Park.

Visitors will also be treated to daily live performances by authentic musicians and complimentary arts and crafts with local artisans, including Chinese calligraphy, paper lantern making and face painting.
Tasty treats also await with four Asian marketplaces featuring foods inspired by Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese cultures, all with a Disney twist. New this year guests can purchase a Sip and Savor Pass to try a little bit of everything without breaking the bank.
There are plenty of speciality souvenirs you can bring home to commemorate the celebration, like items all the way from Shanghai Disney Resort, including traditional red envelopes for gift-giving, Minnie Mouse ear headbands and lantern glow wands. Don’t forget to add your own wishes to the Lucky Wishing Wall for a wonderful year ahead!
