The park heralds the Year of the Rabbit during the Lunar New Year celebration with characters Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Mulan and Mushu in “festive attire,” according to Disney.

The main attraction of the festival is ‘Mulan’s Lunar New Year Procession’, a parade with dozens of performances that takes place throughout the theme park.

The festival will feature 12 marketplaces offering all kinds of food, cocktails, wine and beer, as well as non-alcoholic beverages, along with special entertainment such as “Alice’s Wonderland Bakery Unbirthday Party.”
