Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Celebrates Lunar New Year

By Rachel Green, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts
Last week, just in time for Chinese New Year, we shared some exciting news from Shanghai Disney Resort and its Garden of the Twelve Friends—a whimsical area of the theme park that recasts twelve favorite Disney and Disney•Pixar characters as members of the Chinese zodiac. “Jolly Holiday” lambs from Disney’s "Mary Poppins" were selected in honor of the Year of the Sheep. The Garden of the Twelve Friends will feature a garden wall decorated with flowering vines and colorful mosaic vignettes created in collaboration with local Chinese artists and craftsmen, and will resemble a classic Chinese garden where families can gather and relax together.
