The Lunar New Year event at Disneyland is a multicultural celebration for the Year of the Dog — and it’s in full swing! The 2018 Lunar New Year events include three tasty food booths, plus the return of a nighttime water show called Hurry Home, the Lucky Wishing Wall (add your own wish!), and Mulan’s Lunar New Year Processional.
Disney Food Blog newsletter subscribers heard this rumor last week, and the Taste of Africa is even more official now. According to wdwmagic.com, the event will take place in Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Walt Disney World.
This grand experience of the tastes and cultures of Africa will be officially called ‘The Taste of Africa Street Party.’ It will run from July 9 through July 24, 2010, and will take place nightly in Harambe Village in the Animal Kingdom. Beginning right after the daily Jammin’ Jungle Parade, the event will run through park close each night. On Extra Magic Hour evenings, the event will run through Extra Magic Hours.
Offerings at the Taste of Africa Street Party will include:
- Food and Beverage offerings from outdoor vendors
- Beer and Wine tastings at Tamu Tamu
- A music/dance party with Harambe’s DJ Khalifa and performances from musical group, Wasslou
- Unique merchandise
