Comments

  • Yes, it would be great to know which of these dishes are vegetarian or vegan! When I was at DCA the other day I saw that the otherwise veggie dishes contained fish sauce, so sad 🙁 I still have hopes for that noodle/tofu dish at paradise garden grill though, would be great if it were vegan!

  • Is there anywhere I can get info on which of the special offerings are vegetarian friendly?

  • Just went there Jan 22nd, enjoyed the acrobats, didn’t have a chance to see Mulan’s parade or get pics taken with Mickey and Minnie, such a long wait!– too bad no fast pass option, that way we can do more food tastings and come back when it is time to take our pic? I do like how you extended it this year. not sure if more lion dances are in the parade, but last year there were 7 lions or so dancing at the same time which was pretty cool.

  • THANK YOU for finally extending this event! I email year after year and I feel like I’ve been heard. This has always been an extremely popular event. We always waited extremely long for a photo because of the sheer demand. It will be so nice to have the addition of all those food booths too! Kudos Disney!

  • I love that the Marketplaces have become part of the various celebrations at the park! This is such an exciting addition to the Lunar New Year Celebration this year!

  • What time do the marketplaces open?

  • This all sounds so delicious Rachel! It seems there is a bit more to choose from than years past. Looking forward to it.

    • You’re right, the three marketplaces are new this year! Enjoy the Lunar New Year Celebration! 🙂
