Lunar New Year at Universal Studios Hollywood

Year of the Dog will be celebrated under customary red Chinese lanterns and stunning plum blossom Wishing Trees at this years Lunar New Year event taking place within Universal Plaza inside Universal Studios. The festivities come to life as you discover the 12 zodiac animal signs accompanied by their symbolic attributes. Ever been? We went and enjoyed all the fun character meet and greets plus it gave my girl a great excuse to wear a beautiful Chinese dress.

New to this year’s celebratory event, Universal Studios Hollywood will debut the all-new DreamWorks’ Kung Fu Panda Jade Palace Performance Stage and the exciting Dragon Warrior Training Show based on the beloved Kung Fu Panda franchise. The all-new Kung Fu Panda experience will engage guests of all ages in an interactive martial art demonstration performed by Master Po and friends. TIP: Get there early and sit up front. They choose 5 people at random from the audience. Highly recommend this activity!

The completely reimagined event will also serve up a replica of DreamWorks Kung Fu Panda’s famous Mr. Ping’s Noodle Shop, including Mr. Ping himself who will invite guests to enjoy his authentic Asian fare and a selection of hot and cold Asian beverages. The attention to details was amazing!
