Ortensia Making Rare Appearance with Oswald the Lucky Rabbit at Lunar New Year Festival in California Adventure

Oswald the Lucky Rabbit is being joined by Ortensia the Cat at Disney California Adventure for the Lunar New Year Festival. The Festival runs from January 20 to February 15, 2023.

Oswald’s companion, Ortensia, has never appeared at a US Disney theme park before!

2023 is the Year of the Rabbit in China and Korea so it makes sense to have Oswald the Lucky Rabbit appear during the Lunar New Year Festival. However, in Vietnam 2023 is the Year of the Cat! So, Ortensia is the perfect addition to the celebration.

The Orange County Register is reporting that Oswald will wear custom embroidered shorts in rich golds with an ocean wave motif and a matching hat. Ortensia will wear a golden skirt with lotus, apricot and peach flowers inspired by the traditional Vietnamese ao dai gown and a matching Vietnamese khan dong headpiece embroidered in reds, pinks and golds.

The two rare characters will appear in the Paradise Gardens gazebo. They will take turns taking photos, signing autographs, and interacting with guests.

Are you excited to see these two rare Disney characters?
