From now through Feb. 9, experience Asian culture through cuisine, musical performances, family activities and entertainment—all to welcome another year of good fortune.
Here’s what you should check out:
Watch “Mulan’s Lunar New Year Procession,” a bright and bold parade led by Mulan that dedicates the new year’s blessings to family and friendship. As a special treat for the Year of the Mouse, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse join the procession in new celebration attire. Talented performers bring dance, martial arts and drumming to enhance the beautifully colorful procession.
Prior to “World of Color” nighttime entertainment, enjoy “Hurry Home – Lunar New Year Celebration,” a heartwarming water show which tells the tale of a little lantern’s quest to reunite with family for the annual celebration of good luck and fortune.
Taste your way through four festive marketplaces to experience delightful food and beverages inspired by Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese cultures, including the new smoked beef bulgogi short rib and the peach sojito. In addition, a Sip and Savor Pass is available for adventurous palates interested in tasting six culinary creations. Check out our Foodie Guide to Lunar New Year.
Enjoy live, daily performances by authentic Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese dancers and musicians throughout Paradise Gardens Park.
Pick up commemorative merchandise inspired by different cultures of East Asia. This year, find all-new spirit jerseys, bobble-head figures with Chip and Dale, a traditional red envelope set, themed Minnie Mouse ear headbands and more.
Enjoy complimentary arts and crafts with local artisans, including Chinese calligraphy, dragon’s pearl coloring craft and face painting.
