Lunar New Year, more commonly known as Chinese New Year, has been celebrated annually at Disney California Adventure for quite some time now, but this year they're taking the celebration up a few notches. 2017's Lunar New Year at DCA will be bigger, better and longer than ever before bringing much needed festivities to the off-season at the Disneyland Resort.
This year, the Lunar New Year will also feature a new pre-show to World of Color entitled "Hurry Home". The story is about a Little Lantern on its way home for Lunar New Year and features Mulan and Mushu in dream sequences, traditional Chinese paper cut-out style animation and a soundtrack including an arrangement of the song written for the grand opening of Shanghai Disney Resort.
Typically DCA is quiet in January as the off-season begins, so if you're planning on coming to enjoy smaller crowds you can also take in the extra sights and entertainment offered through Lunar New Year - a celebration unique to the Disneyland Resort!
