One thing I love about the Disney Parks is the frequent celebration of different cultures and traditions. This time of year, I really enjoy the Lunar New Year celebration at the Disneyland Resort, where guests can enjoy a fusion of new flavors and experiences. Those of you who have been around at The DIS for a while know that another special interest of mine is looking behind-the-scenes to see how the atmospheric spark that can be felt in the parks is created. Today, we are taking a tour behind the scenes (and in front of some of them) of the Lunar New Year (The Year of the Dragon) celebration in Disney’s California Adventure Park in the Disneyland Resort.

Join Mez, a long-time Disneyland Resort Cast Member, as he takes you behind-the-scenes during the magical transformation to bring Lunar New Year Celebration to life at Disney California Adventure Park at Disneyland Resort. Lunar New Year at Disney California Adventure Park (Jan. 23-Feb. 18): A tribute to Chinese, Vietnamese and Korean traditions, this multicultural celebration rings in the Year of the Dragon with Asian-inspired food and beverages, vibrant décor and Mushu leading the way in ‘Mulan’s Lunar New Year Procession.’
