New Moon Rising — Lunar New Year Festival Begins: Disney California Adventure Photo Report 1/21/22
Hey there, hi there, ho there! We headed down to Disney California Adventure for the opening day of the Lunar New Year Festival, and we want you to come along. Join us on this photo report from the park.
Before the festival opened, we found ourselves in Avengers Campus where this happy guy thwipped over to say hi.
In the nearby Backlot Premiere Shop, we found this super cool new hoodie for kids that is modeled after Spidey’s new hybrid suit in “Spider-Man: No Way Home.”
At 11 a.m., the Lunar New Year Festival begins.
For those interested in tasting their way through the many booths and restaurants with specialty offerings, the Sip and Savor pass is a convenient way to enjoy everything the event has to offer.
Over at Red Dragon Spice Traders, we tried the new Impossible Lion’s Head meatballs and Dancing Firecracker (non-alcoholic drink), pictured, that join an already stellar menu of returning items. You can read our full review right here.
There is even a Magic Key photo op with a view overlooking Paradise Bay.
We caught the first showing of Mulan’s New Year Procession as it made its way through the festival area. Being that we’re welcoming the year of the tiger, of course Tigger is out front leading the way.
A new float for Mulan, Mushu, and several drummers also takes part in the procession. You can watch the whole show on our YouTube channel, or in the video below:
