For those who don’t know, Lunar New Year is an annual tradition celebrated within Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese cultures and celebrates the celestial journey of the sun and the moon toward another year.
This year, being the Year of the Mouse, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse are getting in on these transformative Asian celebrations at Disney Parks and global retailers! No wonder I am feeling so inspired and motivated for 2020, who best to be inspiring than the Mouse himself!! Celebrating with new Lunar New Year is merchandise inspired by different cultures of East Asia coming soon to Disney Parks and available now on shopDisney.com and other shopping destinations around the world. I am fascinated by the East Asian culture and I just a little excited about this new collection, even though I am not really a ‘merch’ kind of guy.
From plush and Minnie Mouse ear headbands to more traditional items as well, check out how you can join in on the festivities and dress up your Lunar New Year look:
