Guests will receive various blessings when visiting the three new themed lands. Lord Henry invites Guests to visit his home at Mystic Point, which is filled with precious collections of fine art and antiquities. He hopes that by doing so, the home of his Guests will fill up with treasures too. How can Guests pass up the chance to collect treasures in a land rich with fortune and gold? A visit to Grizzly Gulch for a ride on Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars will surely enhance Guests’ affluence during the Chinese New Year. Guests will also be able to experience the spirit of the festival and enjoy playtime with buddies in Toy Story Land, where all luck and fortune will be magnified in the world of oversized toys.
To continue on the path of luck and fortune, Guests are encouraged to take an exotic trip on the Jungle River Cruise, where the venture will bring Guests joy and success in the coming year. Next, Tomorrowland will definitely give young adults the thrill of space exploration, where prosperity reaches past the clouds – to infinity and beyond!
