This year, the Year of the Monkey, brings the return of the Happy Lunar New Year Celebration at Paradise Gardens in Disney California Adventure park, February 5-8! The event will celebrate time-honored traditions of the Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese cultures while inviting guests of all backgrounds to enjoy the festivities. For those who celebrate, it is the customary time to reflect on the past and step into a new life of hope, prosperity and happiness.

Join us for the Happy Lunar New Year Celebration February 5-8, from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. each day!


  • Since it is the Year of the Monkey, will any of Disney’s famous monkeys (or related to monkeys) characters be present?

  • To bad we will not get to see the likes of King Louie,Rafiki,Terk & Abu. Send this is the year for the Monkey.

  • Mushu? Chipmunks?? Where are the Disney monkeys?! I thought we’d get to meet Abu!

  • Any chance the Lunar New Year merchandise will be available on the Shop Disney Parks app for those of us nearer to WDW? Or that they’ll bring an equivalent celebration to WDW?

  • So excited to meet Mulan, my family and I will be there on the 5th to celebrate. Do you know if and when they will be posting where and what the special food will be? Thank you

  • I wish they would do this at EPCOT!
