Embracing all that is full of joy, and laden with hope, and brimming with an auspicious outlook? It isn't hard to do at Disney California Adventure, on any day of the year. But when the Lunar New Year celebrations dance through the Anaheim theme park, all of those happy-making qualities shine a little brighter, thanks to a classic parade, a chance to make crafts, the opportunity to send a wish out into the world, and some truly yummy eats, too.
Lunar New Year fun is now on at Disney California Adventure, through Sunday, Feb. 17. Welcome the Year of the Pig by cheering on "Mulan's Lunar New Year Procession" — the Three Little Pigs are making a 2019 cameo — and with a flavorful visit to a quartet of Asian marketplaces. Hankering for tasty buns and noodles? Vietnamese, Chinese, and Korean favorites are on the marketplaces' menus.
Adding to the celebratory spirit are musicians playing traditional tunes, a Lucky Wishing Wall, and several characters wearing beautiful new year's attire, including Mickey and Minnie.
