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...

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