Today, we’re taking a look at one of the AMAZING pieces of art Disney has put up for Lunar New Year!

If you’ve been walking around Disneyland Resort lately, you might’ve noticed this beautiful Lunar New Year mural, but did you know there’s a cool backstory behind it?

The Lunar New Year Mural!

Well, the artist behind this mural is actually a Disney Cast Member! Elizabeth Lisa Kang, an Associate Art Director at Walt Disney Parks Live Entertainment, created this mural with Minhwa, a form of Korean folk art, as her inspiration! Disney characters like Chip & Dale, Goofy, Mulan, Mushu, and this year’s mascot Tigger all take center stage, but the real star of the show is the East and Southeast Asian cultures and celebrations highlighted by this art.
