    Michelle from CA Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    Hi! Are there any policies about wearing traditional Vietnamese dress (ao dai) while visiting for Lunar New Year? I was planning to take a few pics (non professional, ofc, just with my phone by my boyfriend) during my visit in late January. Is that okay?

    Hi there, Michelle. Thank you for visiting planDisney with your fantastic question. 

    Lunar New Year at Disney California Adventure Park is one of the most special times of the year, in my opinion. It combines two of my favorite things - family traditions and Disney! I find that my kids are more likely to try bao at the Disneyland Resort than any other place. Speaking of which, have you checked out the Disney Eats: Foodie Guide to Lunar New Year 2024 over at the Disney Parks Blog? It is one of my favorite resources to check before my Disney trips - and has so much food and drink to be excited for this Lunar New Year!

    Michelle, you must be getting so excited about your visit this month! I love that you want to commemorate your trip with photos. Before your visit, you will want to make sure that anything that you choose to wear adheres to the Disneyland Dress Code. One part of the policy that is important to note is that:

    • Costumes may not reach or drag on the ground (e.g., full-length Princess dresses)
    I know this refers to a guideline for costumes, which an áo dài, certainly is not. However, without knowing the specific length of your dress, it is important to know that the fantastic Disney Cast Members may not be familiar with traditional Vietnamese dress and may question the length of your dress if it does touch the ground. Dress code enforcement is subject to the discretion of the individual Cast Members, so please come prepared with additional outfit choices, just in case. And, really, who doesn't love a costume change when you're taking photos? The Disney Dress Code is subject to change so make sure to check back right before your visit for the most up-to-date information.

    Michelle, I hope this information was helpful and that you have the best time celebrating the new year at the Disneyland Resort!
