Two exciting events are returning to the Disneyland Resort in early 2019 — Lunar New Year and Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival! Here’s what you need to know to start planning your visit:

Lunar New Year
Ring in the Year of the Pig with 24 days of Lunar New Year celebrations at Disney California Adventure park, Jan. 25 to Feb. 17. A joyous celebration of Asian cultures, Lunar New Year welcomes guests of all ages to commemorate traditions with beloved Disney characters, and welcome another year of good fortune.

Enjoy multicultural performances, fun-filled activities, beautiful décor, delicious cuisine and themed merchandise. One of the highlights is “Mulan’s Lunar New Year Procession,” a bright and bold parade hosted by Mulan and her faithful dragon, Mushu. This year, the parade will feature the Three Little Pigs as a special treat for the Year of the Pig.

Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival 2019

Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival

The popular culinary festival expands to eight weeks, March 1 to April 23. Guests will explore California-inspired cuisine and beverages, plus live entertainment, family-friendly seminars and cooking demonstrations. Kids can even join the fun with hands-on “cooking” experiences that end with a tasty surprise.

Foodies will broaden their palettes at more than a dozen mouthwatering Festival Marketplaces, featuring small plates, specialty wines and craft beers. To taste your way through the festival, the Sip and Savor Pass will be available for all guests looking to try a variety of dishes. In addition, limited-time, Festival-inspired menu items will be served at restaurants throughout Disney California Adventure park.

  • So wish World of Color was up and running for our visit in February. I know you are all working hard hope it comes back soon. I am super excited to enjoy the Three Little pigs this year Classic characters love it!!!!

  • Oh my gosh! From Lunar New Year, Valentines, Food and Wine and the Flower and Garden! I am going to have a great start in 2019 at the Disney Parks! Please bring more Merch (including Dooneys and Minnie ears) to the Food and Wine Fest! Glad to see the restaurants are partaking too.

  • I love California themed items! Still wish we had more attractions celebrating this amazing state! Although the new ideas are great, this park is dedicated to showcasing guests the beauty of California… that they may sadly never get to see due to the scope and size of this state. Don’t forget, this is DISNEY. You, DISNEY are the ones that can make a CALIFORNIA themed park work!

  • I’m so excited for the Food & Wine Festival! I’m curious though, what is the difference between that and the Festival of Holidays?

  • I wish Lunar New Year would start being celebrated at Epcot!!

  • Awesome! Will the 3 Little Pigs also do a meet and geeet for Lunar New Year?
