The festive season at Disneyland Resort will once again be followed by fan-favourite festivals this year. The Lunar New Year celebration and the Food & Wine Festival will return to Disney California Adventure Park this winter and spring.

The Lunar New Year festival commemorates traditions of Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese cultures and includes multicultural performances, special activities, culinary delights, beautiful décor and more. 

“Mulan’s Lunar New Year Procession” will return this year, and visitors will see dozens of spirited parade performers as they honour family, friendship and the potential for a fortune-filled new year.

This coming year will be the year of the Tiger so Tigger will join in the fun with Mulan and Mushu, Mickey and Minnie, the Three Little Pigs and more in festival attire.

During the Lunar New Year celebration, “Raya and the Last Dragon” will appear for the first time at the Disneyland Resort. Raya's native Kumandra has been recreated in the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail.

The Lunar New Year festivities will begin 21 January, 2022, and take place through 13 February, 2022.

Following that celebration is the foodie favourite, Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival, which will begin 4 March through 26 April, 2022.

Visitors will be able to eat and drink their way through California with more than a dozen festival marketplaces that offer bites and beverages for every palate.

There will also be complimentary culinary demonstrations with visiting, local, celebrity and Disney chefs on Saturdays and Sundays as well as special signature events that can be booked and purchased ahead of time, including the Carthay Circle Winemaker Receptions, and the Wine, Beer and Mixology Education & Tasting Seminars.

Guests can also purchase a special Sip and Savor pass for each event.
