Disneyland Resort has released the Lunar New Year menu for 2022 and it’s about time!

Taking place at Disney’s California Adventure, the celebration officially begins Jan. 21 and runs through Feb. 13.

This special engagement commemorates traditions across multiple Asian cultures. There are special performances and merchandise. Your favorite characters will also be adorned in appropriately themed attire. Check out more details on the event here

Akin to the Food & Wine Festival and Festival of Holidays, this event features the Lunar New Year Marketplace. You can find a large offering of food and beverages, and you can eat and drink your way around the park!

These offerings are available for individual purchase or using a Sip & Savor Pass.

If you’re anything like me, food is a major attraction for any trip or outing.

Disney’s take on foods can definitely be interesting.

I’m glad to see that some favorite Lunar New Year menu items from previous years are coming back, like the Char Siu BBQ Pork Bao and the Mickey Chinese Hot Dog Bun.
