Welcoming the Year of the Dragon

Chinese New Year at Hong Kong Disney

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 February 10, 2024 and the celebrations will be in full force from January 25 to February 25, 2024.

Traditional red and gold ornaments, the colors for good luck and happiness, decorate every corner of the park... well as revered Chinese symbols, like the Goldfish, which is believed to bring abundance and prosperity, mandarin oranges, plum blossoms...
