While the actual date of Lunar New Year 2024 is still a few weeks away on February 10, a new merchandise collection celebrating the Year of the Dragon has arrived at Walt Disney World. We found everything available at Star Traders in Magic Kingdom.
Star Traders is located in Tomorrowland at Magic Kingdom.
Lunar New Year 2024 Ear Headband – $34.99
The ear headband for Lunar New Year 2024 takes the holiday’s traditional red and gold colors, translating them into an all-over red sequined headband. The interior of the headband itself is lined in a matching red non-slip velour for comfort.
The bow in the center of the two ears is made of a red silky material, with embroidered gold filigree on the front. There is nothing on the back of the bow or the ears.
Year of the Dragon Mickey Mouse Plush – $34.99
A new Mickey plush celebrating Lunar New Year has also made an appearance. The plush has Mickey dressed in a satin print jacket and pants, both trimmed with white fur at the hems. There’s even golden embroidered filigree on his shoes.
Atop Mickey’s head is a foam Dragon headdress with antlers, done in shades of orange, green, yellow, white, and more. If you can’t make it to Magic Kingdom, you can also find this plush on shopDisney.
Year of the Dragon Adult Spirit Jersey – $84.99
A new Spirit Jersey has also arrived at the park to celebrate Lunar New Year. The jersey is mostly red with gold accents throughout.
On the left breast is puffy, screen-printed gold art of a Disney castle surrounded by fireworks and flowers.
The lower torso features a repeating pattern of Mickey and his friends celebrating the Year of the Dragon, all printed in metallic gold ink. We can spot Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy, and Chip ‘n Dale. This art is also present on the sleeves.
A blue “Disney” tag is sewn directly to the front of the jersey, toward the bottom hem. Next to it, along the side of the jersey is the Spirit Jersey branded tag.
On the back of the jersey, “Year of the Dragon” and “Happy New Year” are printed in puffy metallic gold ink across the shoulders. The words are surrounded by more screen-printed art of flowers. The all-over print on the lower torso also continues on the back.
Year of the Dragon Youth Spirit Jersey – $64.99
A matching Spirit Jersey is also available for youth sizes, so everyone in the family can match.
The design is exactly the same as its adult counterpart. Neither of the Lunar New Year Spirit Jerseys is yet available online from shopDisney.
While Walt Disney World Resort doesn’t specifically have Lunar New Year celebrations, Disneyland Resort is celebrating with the 2024 Lunar New Year Festival, which runs from January 23 through February 18, 2024. Guests will be able to meet Meilin Lee and her mom Ming Lee from “Turning Red,” as well as enjoy delicious dishes from food booths located throughout Disney California Adventure.
