As 2020 draws to a close, it’s time to celebrate the arrival of a new year: 2021! There are many ways to ring in the new year, such as celebrating the new movies and series debuting on Disney+ in 2021. And, if you celebrate Lunar New Year, you’re in luck!
Disney has just released some beautiful 2021 merchandise on both coasts in celebration of Lunar New Year, which is also known as Chinese New Year and Spring Festival and is celebrated in China, Korea, Vietnam, and other regions of Asia and the world. The new year on the lunar calendar officially begins on February 12, 2021, and to commemorate the occasion, new products have been spotted at Downtown Disney at Disneyland Resort and in EPCOT at Walt Disney World Resort.
According to the Chinese zodiac, 2021 is the Year of the Ox, so each item features beautiful ox accents in red and gold color schemes. There are multiple shirts available, but the stand-out items in the collection are the spirit jersey and the new Minnie ears. Let’s take a look at this brand-new merchandise.
Here’s hoping 2021 is full of fun and ! 新年快乐 恭喜发财! (Happy New Year, and may you be prosperous in the coming year!)
Happy New Year! Mickey looks awesome on the back of this new spirit jersey, wearing some ox horns. He’s ready to celebrate in a shiny metallic gold print. If you look closely, you can see a sparkly red pattern covers this jersey. You can even spot some hidden Mickeys! This jersey is priced at $74.99 at Downtown Disney. The jersey pictured here is from Disneyland, but this jersey is available in a Walt Disney World version as well in the Florida theme parks. This item joins some awesome new spirit jerseys that Disney has released in the last couple of weeks.
These Minnie Ears have all the glam! With shiny gold patterns and a bright red base, the ear headband looks gorgeous. Imagine seeing this piece lit up in the sparkling light of fireworks at your Lunar New Year celebration. This Minnie ear headband also has a sequined red bow with little gold flower decorations. This piece differs from the 2020 Lunar New Year ears, but they are just as intricate and lovely. You can purchase these ears for $29.99 on both coasts.
The whole collection features a couple of short-sleeved t-shirts in unisex and women’s sizes. The women’s tee looks pretty and is detailed with Mickey and Minnie on the back of an ox. The unisex shirt uses the same gold lettering as the spirit jersey, also featuring a happy Mickey ready to ring in the new year. These t-shirts are $36.99 each and can be purchased from Disneyland or Walt Disney World.
