Universal Studios Hollywood will once again be celebrating Lunar New Year this year at their park with a variety of activities, including Kung Fu Panda’s Po and Tigress & Mandarin-Speaking MEGATRON.
Lunar New Year comes to life within Universal Plaza, situated at the heart of the theme park where guests will be ushered into the polygon-shaped piazza, under a curtain of customary red Chinese lanterns and a stunning plum blossom arch. Inside they will encounter a dozen lampposts, each featuring banners of the twelve zodiac animal signs along with three symbolic attributes. A selection of Asian-inspired treats will also be available, including pastries decorated with the Chinese characters for “Rooster” and “Fortune.”
Also joining the festivities will be theme park characters, Curious George and Woody Woodpecker, who will don festive Chinese attire.
As part of the celebratory Lunar New Year event, guests are also invited to toast the “Year of the Rooster” at Universal CityWalk’s newest restaurant, Dongpo Kitchen.
