Shanghai Disney Resort officially welcomed the first day of the Year of the Golden Rooster with guests from China and around the world. The resort is celebrating with a spectacular series of entertainment, festive decorations, holiday-themed food and beverage offerings and New Year-themed merchandise.
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. Joined by Mickey and Minnie, and Goofy dressed as the traditional God of Fortune, Philippe Gas, 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 a series of additional New Year activities, including Dragon Dance performances in the Gardens of Imagination every day during the celebration period. Mickey leads the dragon with a “pearl” and welcomes the guests to join him and his pals in the dance. The longer the dragon, the more luck it brings to the guests.
During the Chinese New Year celebration, every night after the Night Time Spectacular show, guests will enjoy a special wishes projection event, where they will be able to send 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 are projected onto Mickey-shaped lanterns on the towering Enchanted Storybook Castle.
