Disney Lunar New Year Celebration Dining/Entertainment Guide

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. I love that Disneyland Resort designates an area of Disney California Adventure Park for about three weeks (Jan. 25 through Feb. 17, 2019) so everyone who’s in the park can join in on the festivities with their family and friends.
