Lunar New Year and Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival Returning to Disneyland Resort in 2022
I am so excited to hear the news that two of my favorite events at Disneyland will be returning for 2022. If you are a foodie like me, you understand why these are some of my favorite events. They have food and drinks, plus a lot of cultural references to other countries!
Lunar New Year, Jan. 21 – Feb. 13, 2022
Lunar New Year at Disney California Adventure is a joyous celebration that commemorates traditions of Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese cultures. The festival is filled with multicultural performances, special activities, culinary delights, beautiful décor and more. The captivating “Mulan’s Lunar New Year Procession” will return, featuring dozens of spirited parade performers as they honor family, friendship, and the potential for a fortune-filled new year.
In 2022, we will be celebrating the Year of the Tiger at the Lunar New Year festival. Tigger will join in on the fun, along with beloved Disney characters including Mulan and Mushu, Mickey and Minnie, the Three Little Pigs and more, all donning their festive attire.
Adding to the excitement of Lunar New Year, Raya from Walt Disney Animation Studios’ film, “Raya and the Last Dragon” will be appearing for the very first time at Disneyland Resort during the celebration! You’ll be able to see Raya in a setting inspired by her native Kumandra, recreated in the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail.
Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival, March 4 – April 26, 2022
In 2022, family and friends will come together at the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival to explore California regions and neighborhoods in a number of ways, from the delicious fare to the vibrant entertainment, fun festival merchandise and more.
During the festival, you’ll get to taste your way through more than a dozen festival marketplaces that offer mouthwatering bites and beverages for every palate. Complimentary culinary demonstrations with visiting, local, celebrity and Disney chefs will return for the whole family to enjoy on Saturdays and Sundays during the festival. And for those looking to enhance their festival experience, special signature events will also be available to book and purchase, including the Carthay Circle Winemaker Receptions, and the Wine, Beer and Mixology Education & Tasting Seminars.
