The 2024 Lunar New Year Celebration has arrived at Disney California Adventure, and we’re giving you a complete look at the event’s tasting passport.
2024 Lunar New Year Tasting Passport
The front of the passport is a deep red — a color often used in Lunar New Year celebrations, as it symbolizes good fortune. The center has a dragon to represent 2024 as the Year of the Dragon. There’s a small Hidden Mickey within the dragon.
The top reads “Lunar New Year” and “Disney California Adventure Park.” Beneath the dragon reads “2024 Tasting Passport,” with three lanterns hanging from the banner, and the bottom lists the event dates, “January 23 – February 18, 2024.” The back has the same design, sans any of the writing.
The first page of the passport starts with a section to write your name, followed by a welcome message for the festival, which gives guests details on what they can expect throughout the event. Next is an explainer for the passport’s Stamp of Completion section. Guests can collect seven stamps from kiosks around the festival, and then gain their Stamp of Completion at the Festival Merchandise Location near The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel’s Undersea Adventure.
Flipping the page, you’ll see everything you need to know about the Lunar New Year Sip and Savor Pass. The left page breaks down the details about purchasing the pass, and the right page has a photo of the pass and information on how to order items using it.
As you turn to page six, you’ll start to get a look at the festival booths and their offerings without prices. Vegetarian items are marked with a blue V, Sip and Savor Pass-eligible items are marked with a crossed fork and spoon, and plant-based items are marked with two leaves.
Many of the pages have photos of food and beverages that can be found in the booths. The pages also have New Year Stamp spots for each marketplace.
The designs from the front of the passport, including the dragon design and Lunar New Year decorations, continue throughout the passport.
In addition to the festival marketplaces, participating locations that are serving specialty items for the festival are listed.
There is a full page dedicated to the festival churros that can be found at various locations throughout Disney California Adventure.
The index lists all of the vegetarian and plant-based options, followed by information about Lunar New Year offerings that can be found at the Disneyland Resort hotels and Downtown Disney District.
The next page details the locations where guests can find festival merchandise and seasonal merchandise and experiences.
Finally, the last spread of the passport gives you a full map of the Lunar New Year event, with locations marked for the marketplaces, participating locations, festival entertainment, and character experiences — including the Meilin and Ming Lee meet and greet and Mulan’s Lunar New Year Processional. The key also has symbols for a variety of offerings around the park, including Chinese Calligraphy Artists, Lunar New Year Wishing Wall, and Festival Crafts.
