Disney Parks and Resorts draw large crowds throughout the year with their annual festivals, and 2019 will bring even more festive fun to Disneyland Resort. Disney has just announced the 2019 dates for two amazing festivals at Disney California Adventure: Lunar New Year and Food & Wine!
These two events will take place early next year and add to the many reasons why you should start planning your 2019 visits to Disneyland Resort. With the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge next summer and the updates coming to Pixar Pier, there is so much to do and see at both theme parks at Disneyland Resort next year and beyond. These two festivals are sure to be major crowd pleasers in early 2019. Take a look at the details for the upcoming festivals at Disney California Adventure.
Lunar New Year
To commemorate the beginning of the Year of the Pig in 2019, Disney California Adventure will be hosting 24 days of celebrations. From January 25 through February 17, guests can partake in Disney’s joyous celebration of Asian cultures during Lunar New Year. Guests will encounter beloved Disney characters, enjoy multicultural performances, partake in fun-filled activities, see beautiful cultural décor, purchase themed merchandise, and best of all, feast on several delicious dishes inspired by a variety of Asian cuisines.
One of the highlights of Lunar New Year at Disney California Adventure is Mulan’s Lunar New Year Procession, a bright and bold parade starring Mulan and Mushu, her dragon sidekick. And to celebrate the Year of the Pig, the procession will feature the Three Little Pigs, as well!
The Lunar New Year food kiosk menus have yet to be announced, so check back on Inside the Magic for more details when they are released. We can’t wait to taste all of the delicious Asian-inspired eats at this year’s festival!

Food & Wine Festival
Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival is bigger, better, and tastier in 2019! Next year, the festival will be expanded to eight weeks, running from March 1, 2019, through April 23, 2019. Throughout the festival, guests can explore and dine on California-inspired cuisine and beverages from a variety of food kiosks.
More than a dozen Festival Marketplaces will be offering dishes this year, so every Disney foodie is recommended to come ready to enjoy everything the festival is serving. The Sip and Savor pass is highly recommended, as it provides guests with the opportunity to taste their way through the festival and try a variety of dishes and beverages for a great price.
The Food & Wine Festival offers fun for the whole family. Guests can enjoy live entertainment, family-friendly seminars, and cooking demonstrations. Children can also participate in hands-on cooking experiences (and even get a tasty treat to try after!). And the festival doesn’t end there: several restaurants throughout Disney California Adventure park will also be offering limited-time menus with dishes inspired by the festival. There’s so much to try!
Disneyland Resort will also be offering a limited-time ticket offer in early 2019:
