Disney California Adventure is ready to celebrate the 2024 Lunar New Year with a new “Turning Red” Meilin & Ming Lee meet and greet.

Meilin & Ming Lee Meet and Greet

A wide shot of the meet and greet area for Meilin & Ming Lee.

The meet and greet is located in the old stroller parking for The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel’s Undersea Adventure, across from Embarcadero Gifts. An attendant is in place to help guests queue up to the side so as to not block the walkway and the characters are set back from the main path.

A bright red pergola serves as the backdrop. In the center is a large red panda medallion with two red pandas within. Smaller medallions of cartoon red panda faces frame it. Small paper lanterns hang inside the pergola while large yellow ones hang from the roof in front.

There’s a paper banner of red pandas on either side of the area.
