The Lunar New New Year celebration at Disney California Adventure is a tribute to the time-honored traditions, festivities and ceremonies of this multi-cultural occasion. The Paradise Gardens area comes to life with food and entertainment.

During the Lunar New Year celebration, Paradise Garden Grill converts to a menu that celebrates a broad range of Asian cultures. In addition, three marketplaces highlight the cuisines of Korea, China and Vietnam.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Entertainment

 

During Lunar New Year, live performers and musicians perform throughout the area, and at night, Paradise Bay comes to life.

 

 

Several times a day, Mulan's Lunar New Year Procession makes its way into the area, with the traditional dragon, dancers, drummers, and martial artists, plus a special appearance by Goofy.

 

 

 

This year, Paradise Park is home to the GuGu Drum Group. The percussionists and storytellers from Shanghai perform several times a day.

 

 

The Paradise Garden Bandstand features several performers on a rotating basis, including guitarist Dat Nguyen and traditional Korean musician Luna Lee.

 

Finally, each night prior to World of Color, the waters of Paradise Bay bring to life Hurry Home-Lunar New Year Celebration, the story of a little lantern that tries to find its way home.


Activities

 

Paradise Gardens is also home to several fun activities, including a chance to learn more about Asian cultures or meet some of your favorite Disney characters.

 

 

Mulan, Mushu and more are dressed in their Lunar New Year best to celebrate and pose for pictures with you.

 

Nearby, calligraphy artists show off their skills and younger guests can color and assemble a paper lantern.

 

Finally, you add your wish for the New Year to the Wishing Wall.
