    The ultimate 2024 party spot is at the one and only Shanghai Disney Resort and Hong Kong Disneyland Resort, truly the most magical and enchanted places out there for such a special annual celebration.

    How is it celebrated at Shangai Disney Resort?

    Oh, that’s such a great question! There are many ways to paint the town red during this unique time but, certainly, it starts with a visual feast. From January 18th until February 24th, the celebration starts at full force, and it even features the beautiful hanging lanterns that can be found in every corner of the park.

    The splendid “Dragon’s Gate” will be fully decorated and safely guarded by our brave little friends, Chip ‘n’ Dale, who are already in full festive mode with their vibrant koi fish attire. They will also look after you if you plan to visit this side of Disneyland!
