Lunar New Year, Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival returning to Disneyland in 2022

by Brittani Tuttle

Disneyland Resort has announced that two limited-time festivals will be back next year — the Lunar New Year celebration and Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival.


Lunar New Year

Jan. 21 – Feb. 13, 2021

Happening from Jan. 21 – Feb. 13, 2021, Lunar New Year at Disney California Adventure is a celebration of Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese cultures. The festival is packed with multicultural performances, special activities, culinary offerings, décor, merchandise, and more.

In 2022, the event will celebrate the Year of the Tiger, and Tigger will join in on the fun alongside Disney characters Mulan and Mushu, Mickey and Minnie, the Three Little Pigs and more — all dressed in festive attire.

Adding to the fun will be Raya, from Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Raya and the Last Dragon,” who will make her domestic Disney Parks debut during the celebration. Guests will be able to meet her in a setting inspired by her native Kumandra, recreated in the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail.

“Mulan’s Lunar New Year Procession” will also return, parading through Disney California Adventure as hosts Mulan and Mushu honor family, friendship, and the potential for a fortune-filled new year. Live musical entertainment will also be offered at the Paradise Garden Bandstand.

The Sip and Savor Pass will return for 2022, offering guests extra chances to sip and sample their way through the Lunar New Year marketplaces. There will also be special Lunar New Year-inspired food and beverage offerings at select dining locations throughout the park.

Other Lunar New Year traditions, including the Lucky Wishing Wall and craft activities, will also return for the 2022 celebration.


Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival

March 4 – April 26, 2022

In 2022, family and friends can come together once again at the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival.

During the event, guests can taste their way through a dozen festival marketplaces that offer a variety of bites for every palate. There will also be a Sip and Savor Pass for this event, as well.

Complimentary culinary demonstrations with local, celebrity and Disney chefs will return for 2022, and will be offered on Saturdays and Sundays. Those looking to enhance their festival experience can purchase and book special signature events, including the Carthay Circle Winemaker Receptions, and Wine, Beer and Mixology Education & Tasting Seminars.

Entertainment will fill the festival’s stages, with live musical performances at the Palisades Stage and Paradise Gardens Bandstand, visits with Chef Goofy and friends, and craft activities.
