Mulan’s Lunar New Year Procession Float”

This year’s procession also introduces a gorgeous new float for Mulan and Mushu to arrive upon, accompanied by traditional Chinese drummers performing powerful rhythms. Decorated in red and gold to symbolize good fortune and happiness, the float features bright bunches of red firecrackers that hang together with golden tassels, and delicate red and gold lanterns come aglow for after-sunset performances. During the procession, Mulan and Mushu are surrounded by performers bringing cultural artistry and dance to life.

One of the highlights of the celebration is the "Hurry Home – Lunar New Year Celebration" show, which takes place at the Paradise Gardens Park in Disney California Adventure. This heartwarming show tells the story of a young girl who travels to Disneyland to celebrate the Lunar New Year with her family. Along the way, she meets some of her favorite Disney and Pixar characters who join her on her journey.

In addition to the show, guests can enjoy a variety of food and beverage options inspired by the flavors of the Lunar New Year. From savory dishes like stir-fried vegetables and rice bowls, to sweet treats like Thai Tea with boba there is something for everyone to enjoy.
