This had to be one of the highlights of last year for me! The move to Pacific Wharf is perfect. I HIGHLY reccomend that Disney Fans get to experience it all! I will certainly be back…:)

I am soooo loving all this Limited Time Magic. A friend will be here 2/13-15, hopefully there will be something awesome during those dates too.

That’s great news. We were planning on going that weekend anyway but this will make it that much more fun. And the change of venue really fits in perfectly given the strong Asian presence in California.

Exciting news! I will be at the Disneyland Resort that week and I am looking forward to this event as well as the Bayou event at Disneyland Park.

Hi Erin, I read somewhere that a children’s dance troupe from China will be performing at Disneyland on Jan 29 for the Lunar New Year Celebration. Do you have any information on that? Thanks!

Why the Disneyland Resort getting these awesome event-style Limited Time Magic events while WDW just keeps getting character meet and greets?

I hope you sell Mulan stuff this year! My child loves her and it’s hard to find stuff with her on it.
