Good Fortune For All during the Chinese New Year at Hong Kong Disneyland
This February, guests to Hong Kong Disneyland can share in the celebration of the Spring Festival, otherwise known as the Chinese New Year. The month-long event will feature new merchandise, new photo opportunities, and new clothes for Mickey and the gang!
In the New Year, it is traditionally considered lucky to hand out even denominations of money in lai see, or red envelopes (red is one of the central colors of the annual event). At Hong Kong Disneyland, guests will be able to purchase Mickey Family Chinese New Year Lai See Red Packets and golden Mickey Lai See coins. Many other items, like fortune wheels and festival-themed accessories, will also be available for a limited time.
Taking a family photo is another important tradition belonging to the New Year, and one which Hong Kong Disneyland is more than prepared for. Numerous photo spots already exist around the park, and new photo-ops will be available on Main Street just for the festival. Many of the decorations will be gold, symbolizing prosperity in the New Year. One particular photo spot that’s sure to be a favorite will be a large gold statue at the entrance of the park.
Even Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald, and Duffy the Disney Bear will get in on the action, wearing new clothes featuring the festival’s primary colors, gold and red. Following the traditional of new clothes for the New Year (symbolizing luck, prosperity, and new beginnings), the gang will be decked out in their new digs for the duration of the festivities.
If you want to “Enhance your fortune this year,” you better hurry – the Chinese New Year celebration at Hong Kong Disneyland will end with the start of March.
