Out on Main Street, U.S.A., guests and their families can enjoy the bustling, festive New Year atmosphere by taking photos of the lucky red and gold decorations all around. Be sure to greet Mickey and his pals, who will all be dressed up for the occasion in their holiday finest. A range of festive delicacies will be presented in the park and three resort hotels, including classic Chinese dishes like “lo hei” and Chinese New Year-themed meals and snacks.
