The Lunar New Year is coming, and Universal Studios Hollywood has just announced the return of a fan-favorite celebration. Taking place from February 2-17, the park will host a number of special ways to ring in the Year of the Pig. With unique character interactions, live performances, and fun activities, there’s something for everyone in the family to enjoy.
Guests to the jubilee can try Asian dishes at Ping’s Noodle Shop and even chat with Mr. Ping himself. Po and Tigress from the hit Kung Fu Panda series will also be there. Po will be on hand to share some of his skills in the Interactive Dragon Warriors Kung Fu Training Show at Universal Plaza. Kids can look forward to learning the secrets of and practicing Kung Fu with Po himself. This won’t be the only performance worth seeing as there will also be an interactive show teaching guests the history of the Lunar New Year.
Universal’s other iconic characters are getting in on the fun as well. Special themed meet and greets will be available throughout the festival dates. Guests can hang out with the Minions in traditional Chinese attire, or a Mandarin-speaking Megatron from The Transformers. Make sure to stop by the Animation Studio Store for a special encounter with the one and only Hello Kitty.
You’ll also able to share New Years wishes on Wishing Trees placed throughout the area. Guests will be encouraged to write their hopes for the new year on pieces of paper and attach them to the trees as part of the Chinese tradition. It’s not hard to see why this festival has become a favorite with park visitors. 2019’s festivities are stacking up to be even better than in years past, and we can’t wait to check them out in person.
