Two highly anticipated events are once again returning to the Disneyland Resort in early 2020: Lunar New Year and Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival! Start planning your visit now – here’s what you need to know:
Lunar New Year
Welcome another year of good fortune with 24 days of Lunar New Year celebrations at Disney California Adventure park, Jan. 17 to Feb. 9. This year we are celebrating the Year of the Mouse with multicultural performances, fun-filled activities, beautiful décor, delicious cuisine and specialty merchandise.
Lunar New Year is a joyous celebration for all ages to commemorate traditions of Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese cultures, along with favorite Disney characters. One of the highlights is “Mulan’s Lunar New Year Procession,” a bright and bold performance hosted by Mulan and her faithful dragon, Mushu.
Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival
Taste your way through California-inspired bites, wine and beer at Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival, Feb. 28 to Apr. 21. You will also have the opportunity to enjoy live entertainment, culinary seminars and demonstrations with a distinctly Disney twist perfectly crafted for foodies.
The popular culinary festival will feature more than a dozen mouthwatering Festival Marketplaces, featuring small plates, specialty wines and craft beers. Foodies will also appreciate the Sip and Savor Pass, which will be available for all guests looking to try a variety of dishes. In addition, a new line of event merchandise will be offered—from festival-themed headwear and apparel, to kitchen gadgets and decor. Kids can even join in on the fun with hands-on “cooking” experiences with Chef Goofy!
