Celebrate the Year of the Rooster at Hong Kong Disneyland from January 19 to February 12, 2017. With an array of food and merchandise available, there’s plenty to experience this New Years! Let’s take a quick look at what’s offered this year.
First Day of Chinese New Year
Starting on the first day of the Chinese New Year (January 28), every guest who enters the park receives a special lai see (red envelope) which has a piece of chocolate and “bestowing wishes of abundant good fortune”. This year has an Iron Man design to celebrate not only the New Year but the opening of the new attraction, the Iron Man Experience. These are available while supplies last.
Mickey and Friends Festive Outfits
Mickey and friends celebrate the Spring Festival in new Chinese New Year costumes to wish everyone a bountiful year! Also making an appearance is Gelatoni. Starting January 28, 2017, “God of Fortune Goofy” greets guests at the park.
Chinese New Year Decorations
Main Street, U.S.A. is full of festive flowers and well-wishes to bring the Chinese New Year blessings to all guests at the park! Also, from the movie “Moana” is Heihei the rooster to celebrate the Year of the Rooster!
If you’re hungry, there is plenty to choose from such as desserts and meals!
Sumptuous delicacies, a must for the festive spring celebration, will be presented in the theme park and the resort’s two themed hotels. The menus are made up of nearly 60 special Chinese New Year creations infused with prosperous blessings, bringing families and friends together to share. Guests can also enjoy “Good Luck Cookies,” “Lucky Fish” and “Blossoming Bless” snacks at Market House Bakery and the “Chinese New Year Special Set” at Plaza Inn on Main Street, U.S.A., as well as the bountiful “Chinese New Year Treasure in Pot Set” at Explorer’s Club Restaurant in Mystic Point. “Lo Hei” will also be served at Studio Lounge in Disney’s Hollywood Hotel to bring prosperity to all guests who enjoy this classic dish.
Hong Kong Disneyland has kicked it up a notch the past few years with their spectacular merchandise choice. This year is no exception. Fans of Duffy, ShellieMay, Gelatoni, and Tsum Tsum are in for a treat.
The Year of Rooster is also being celebrated with more than 50 thoughtfully designed festive gifts – from Gelatoni in his first Spring Festival look to collections featuring Mickey, Minnie, Duffy and ShellieMay. They are lined up alongside other festival gift sets, such as lai see and fai chun, for all to share the joy and blessings of the New Year.
