Hong Kong Disneyland Resort Brings Good Fortune, Affection and Magic With a Double Celebration of Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day in 10th Anniversary
(Hong Kong, January 18, 2016) Hong Kong Disneyland Resort is getting ready to welcome the Year of the Monkey from January 29 to February 21, resplendent in colorful peach blossoms and festive Chinese New Year decorations, adding jubilance to the Resort’s ongoing “Happily Ever After” 10th Anniversary celebration in 2016. Romance will be in the air towards the 7th day of Chinese New Year on February 14.

Commencing February 8 of Chinese New Year, blessings of good fortune will be shared with all guests as they are presented a “specially minted” Mickey chocolate gold coin Lai See, on their entry to the theme park. Even the red packet of the Lai See is itself a unique keepsake for the New Year celebration in this milestone anniversary year. Mickey, Goofy and Olaf, the stars of the Resort’s newest musical extravaganza “Mickey and the Wondrous Book”, are featured along with a gold embossed New Year blessing and a Hidden Mickey. Be among the first to visit the park on the first day of the Chinese New Year and receive the Lai See while stock lasts.
CNY Family Fun with Disney Friends adds some Anniversary Magic
During the Chinese New Year celebration, Disney friends, Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy, Pluto, Chip & Dale, Duffy & ShellieMay, will change from their Anniversary costumes into bright Chinese New Year outfits to share best wishes with guests daily at Main Street, U.S.A., after the “Flights of Fantasy Parade”.
Guests are invited to visit Animation Academy and draw Mickey in his Chinese New Year costumes in between enjoying the park’s 10thAnniversary attractions and the fun-filled shows and parades.
Festive Dining In Abundance
A range of 80 gourmet delights with distinct Chinese New Year flavors will fill the menus of the restaurants in the park and the two themed hotels. Why not celebrate the beginning of the Year of Monkey with a cheeky Happy Albert Chocolate Mousse from the Market House Bakery, and enjoy savory and sweet snacks bearing auspicious names like “Lucky Ball” and “Happy New Year Fish”. Celebrate family togetherness with a “Chinese New Year Treasure in Pot Set Menu” at River View Cafe in Adventureland, or feast on the Plaza Inn’s “Chinese New Year Special Set”. It will be exquisitely fun to have a “Lo Hei” at Studio Lounge at the Disney’s Hollywood Hotel with the whole family or with a group of friends or colleagues to wish everyone a year of prosperity and success ahead. Your year of abundance in gastronomy begins here at the Resort.
Collectible Keepsakes Bestow Endless Blessing
Mystic Point’s monkey, Albert, will make his debut among the great variety of more than 30 memorabilia in the “Chinese New Year Assortment” to aptly mark the Year of the Monkey.
