The Lunar New Year celebration returns to Disney California Adventure from January 23 through February 18, 2024. The celebration will feature culinary delights, fun festivities and Disney Characters. Two new characters coming this year are Meilin and Ming from Turning Red.


The main character in the 2022 Pixar animated film is Meilin Lee, also known as Mei, with Ming Lee serving as her mother. Both possess the remarkable ability to morph into giant Red Pandas. While it hasn’t been officially confirmed, there’s a strong possibility that Mei will greet guests in her panda form, a practice already in place at Shanghai Disney Resort.

Other offerings coming to the Lunar New Year celebration include:

  • Mulan’s Lunar New Year Procession
  • Vocal Seoul at Sonoma Terrace
  • Special appearances by some popular Disney Characters—including Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse—dressed in colorful attire
  • Innovative menus celebrating delicious Asian cuisine
  • Commemorative festive merchandise
  • Hurry Home – A Lunar New Year Celebration pre-show
  • Kid-friendly crafts and activities
  • Festive décor and more
