Disney Lunar New Year Celebration Dining/Entertainment Guide

Written in collaboration with Disneyland. All opinions are my own. LUNAR NEW YEAR is one of the most celebrated holidays among Asian cultures. Each country will observe it slightly different, but they all commemorate with loved ones to wish each other good fortune and prosperity for the new year.

For Year of the Mouse this year, guests can experience Asian culture through carefully selected food, music, and entertainment. I love what Disneyland … READ MORE >>

It includes cities like Big Sur, Carmel, Carmel-by-the-Sea, Monterey, Pacific Grove and Pebble Beach. Every few years we revisit the area, because we love it so much. The scenic coastal drive has several vista points which are breathtaking, majestic, and picturesque. If you stop and wait long enough, sometimes you can spot whales. Our trips never feel long enough even though we are there three to four days. One of these days I would like to try hiking, camping, or a … READ MORE >>
