Menus Revealed for Disney California Adventure’s 2023 Lunar New Year Festival

Disney California Adventure’s Lunar New Year Festival is about to kick off, running from January 20th through February 15th. You know what that means? Specialty food menus! Throughout DCA, food booths and restaurants will have items that celebrate the Lunar New Year. In this post, we’ll list all of the menus and items coming to the festival.

The festival returns and offers six festival marketplaces as well as specialty menu items at existing restaurants in California Adventure and Downtown Disney. The Sip and Savor Pass will be available to festival goers and will be discounted for those with a Magic Key Pass. With this, guests will pay a flat rate for the pass and then be able to order 6 different items from those listed below. Alcohol is not included. In past experience, the pass will save around 5-10 dollars if you’re planning to eat all day at the park. You can also use the pass on return trips. The other option is just paying out of pocket for menu items at the individual booths.

On to the menus!
