Welcome in the Year of the Tiger at Disney California Adventure Park!

In just one week, the Disneyland Resort will once again celebrate the Lunar New Year with Guests at its second Gate.

According to Disneyland’s website, the event pays tribute to Chinese, Vietnamese, and Korean cultures with fan-favorite characters, including–for the very first time–Raya!

The Resort states on its website: 

Ring in the Year of the Tiger with Tigger and friends at the Paradise Gardens Gazebo! Tigger will be bouncing with delight to see. Look for special appearances by Mulan and Mushu. Mickey and Minnie and the Three Little Pigs will also be visiting the festivities in their Lunar New Year finery.

Gather loved ones for cherished photo memories under our gorgeous pavilion bedecked with bamboo, peach blossoms, golden flowers and banners bearing hope-filled holiday wishes. 

Under the forest canopy in Redwood Creek Challenge Trail, you can encounter the heroic Raya from Raya and the Last Dragon, as she makes her Lunar New Year debut.
