coming this January - February 2017

During Chinese New Year, Disneyland Hong Kong transforms once again after the rush of the Christmas season. This time instead of fluffy snow and holiday wreaths, it is lanterns, red envelopes, chinese lions, drums and gongs...

And in typical Disney fashion, our favourite characters will be there dressed in full Chinese traditional gear to celebrate and wish you Gung Hay Fat Choy!

The Chinese New Year celebrations at Hong Kong Disneyland kick off a week or so prior to Chinese New Year's Day, the date of which varies and is set according to the Lunar calendar, it falls normally in January or February.

This year, Chinese New Year is on January 28, 2017 and the celebrations will be officially launched on January 23 and run until mid-February.

Traditional red and gold ornaments, the colors for good luck and happiness, decorate every corner of the park...
