Shanghai Disney Resort celebrates its first Chinese New Year

Shanghai Skyline 650The resort has launched a spectacular series of entertainment for the event, with festive decorations, holiday-themed food, beverage offerings and New Year-themed merchandise. There is no more important time in China for families and friends to celebrate together than during Chinese New Year, and Shanghai Disney Resort is seen as a popular place to celebrate the festival together.

The resort heralded the first day of the Year of the Rooster with two traditional Chinese lions bringing fortune and prosperity to guests in front of the Storyteller Statue. Philippe Gas, the General Manager of Shanghai Disney Resort, dotted the eyes of the lions, awakening them to spread good cheer and luck to resort guests and cast members.

Shanghai Disney Resort has provided an array of New Year activities, including dragon dance performances in the Gardens of Imagination every day during the celebration period. Guests gather along the longest parade route in a Disney park to enjoy Mickey’s Storybook Express, an exciting parade with its own musical soundtrack and colourful performers.

In the Chinese zodiac-inspired Garden of the Twelve Friends, the Year of the Rooster is represented by an Allan-A-Dale mosaic, which is beautifully adorned in sleek, new red couplets for another fun photo opportunity.

Classic Disney characters are dressed in brand-new, beautiful Chinese traditional attire on Mickey Avenue, sharing hugs and taking photos with guests. The gleaming new golden rooster icon in the Gardens of Imagination has been designed to welcome guests and conjure happy and prosperous thoughts.

During the Chinese New Year celebration, every night after the Night-time Spectacular show, guests have enjoyed a special wishes projection event, where they have sent their best New Year wishes in the most special of ways. To the tune of a charming symphony composition by famous Chinese musician Tan Dun, a series of inspirational wishes and quotes have been projected onto Mickey-shaped lanterns on the Enchanted Storybook Castle.
