Happy Lunar New Year

Time: 10:00 a.m. through 5:00 p.m.

Location: Parade Route (Performance Corridor) & San Francisco Street (near The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel's Undersea Adventure attraction) in Disney California Adventure Park

The Happy Lunar New Year celebration in Disney California Adventure Park is a joyous tribute to the time-honored traditions, festivities and ceremonies of this multi-cultural occasion that commemorates the time when the sun and moon begin their journeys for another year. This is also a time to focus on family and to offer each other wonderful wishes for the future.

Sensational Sights

Certain areas in Disney California Adventure Park are decked out with festive decorations for this exciting celebration.

Woven throughout walkways are ornamental lanterns. Bright banners and signs — presented in English, Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese — wish everyone a Happy Lunar New Year.

Mulan's Chinese New Year Procession

At select times during each day of the celebration, Mulan and Mushu lead a procession along the parade route in front of Pacific Wharf.

Adding to the merriment are umbrella dancers clad in brightly colored costumes. This procession ends at a fanciful photo location near The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel's Undersea Adventure attraction.

Disney Character Photo Opportunity

Gather your family and pose for pictures with select Disney Characters — like Mulan, Mushu, Mickey and Minnie Mouse — dressed in their best to celebrate the Lunar New Year with you!

Event Entertainment

Be sure to catch cultural, colorful and impressive dancers, drummers, musicians and martial artists as they perform on the parade route.



Disneyland Grad Nite
A once-in-a-lifetime experience where you and your friends get to create one final high school memory. We are excited to announce new twists and enhancements for the graduating Class of 2013!
In 2013, you will have more time, more flexibility and more room for celebrating this unforgettable event . Seniors will have the opportunity to enter Disneyland® Park or Disney California Adventure® Park at any time during their Grad Nite visit with a Park Hopper® Ticket that allows them a full day to experience both Disney Parks. In addition, 2013 Grads will now receive a private showing of World of Color to kick-off the exclusive private party that begins when Disney California Adventure Park closes.
You only graduate once. So get your friends together, party with other high school seniors from all over the country and don't miss this celebration of a lifetime!
The Disney Difference:


New for 2013! The Disneyland® Grad Nite Private party moves to Disney California Adventure®Park!


Not only will grads have private access to the world class attractions at Disney California Adventure®Park, but, for the first time ever, Grads can cruise into our newest land at the Disneyland Resort- Cars Land, inspired by the Disney*Pixar movie Cars!


For only $69.00, seniors will still have the opportunity to enter Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure®Park at any time during the day as part of their Grad Nite visit. They will receive a Park Hopper® Ticket allowing them a full day to experience both Disney Parks! Once Disney California Adventure Park closes to the general public (closing times TBD), we will kickoff the exclusive, secure and private party and we won't stop until 3 a.m!


This new enhancement allows schools to customize their visit with us. Come early and enjoy all that Disneyland® Park has to offer before entering Disney California Adventure® Park for your private, safe and secure exclusive Grad Nite party that evening. Graduating the same day as your event? No problem!

Come later in the day just for the Grad Nite event! It's completely up to you and what works best for the needs of your school.
