It’s time for Pluto and Goofy to shine at Disney California Adventure, as the park hosts its annual Lunar New Year Celebration in honor of the Year of the Dog. The East Asian holiday– officially observed on Friday, February 16th this year– is already in full swing at Disneyland Resort with authentic food, music, entertainment, and of course plenty of Disney characters.

In the Paradise Gardens and Paradise Park areas of Disney California Adventure, guests will find lots to see and do, all themed in bright red and yellow Lunar New Year coloring. There’s crafts and activities for kids, tasty delicacies inspired by a variety of Asian cultures, and even an exclusive area for Disneyland Resort Annual Passholders.
