Lunar New Year and Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival Return

Two very popular special events will be returning to Disney California Adventure in the new year.

The first is the Lunar New Year celebration. Guests are invited to ring in the Year of the Pig from January 25 through February 17. This event is a joyous celebration of Asian cultures. Lunar New Year welcomes guests of all ages to commemorate traditions with beloved Disney characters, and welcome another year of good fortune.  During the event, Guests will be able to enjoy performances, fun-filled activities, beautiful décor, delicious cuisine and themed merchandise.

One of the highlights of the Lunar New Year event is “Mulan’s Lunar New Year Procession” This is a parade hosted by Mulan and Mushu. This year, in honor of the Year of the Pig, the parade will feature the Three Little Pigs.

Also returning will be the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival. This festival will be expanding to eight weeks, from March 1 through April 23. During the event, Guests will be able to enjoy California-inspired cuisine and beverages, plus experience live entertainment, seminars and cooking demonstrations. This year, there will be more than a dozen mouthwatering Festival Marketplaces that feature small plates, specialty wines and craft beers.

Guests looking to try a variety of dishes and drinks should consider picking up the Sip and Savor Pass. In addition, limited-time, Festival-inspired menu items will be served at restaurants throughout Disney California Adventure.

It seems like a great winter/spring is in store for Guests visiting Disney California Adventure! Stay tuned to the blog for more information about both these great events.
