Celebrate Lunar New Year: ‘Year of The Dog’ at Universal Studios Hollywood through Feb. 25th

Join Po, Tigress, the Minions, Mr. Ping, and Megatron at Universal Studios Hollywood now through Feb. 25th and celebrate the Lunar New Year: “Year of The Dog.”

This spectacularly themed Lunar New Year event takes place within Universal Plaza, a polygon-shaped piazza that sits at the heart of the theme park. Under a curtain of customary red Chinese lanterns and stunning plum blossom Wishing Trees, the festivities come to life as guests discover the 12 zodiac animal signs accompanied by their symbolic attributes. Fun fact, my zodiac animal is the Horse…Loyal, Adventurous, and Courageous.



The completely reimagined event also serves up a replica of DreamWorks Kung Fu Panda’s famous Mr. Ping’s Noodle Shop, including Mr. Ping himself who invites guests to enjoy his authentic Asian fare and a selection of hot and cold Asian beverages.



A returning favorite among Universal Studios Hollywood’s Lunar New Year traditions, Mandarin-speaking Transformer’s MEGATRON marks a highlight of the annual event, as the imposing leader of the DECEPTICONS returns to greet guests at the entry to the festivities. The ominous 12-foot-tall sentient robot interacts with guests, engaging them both in Mandarin and in real time conversation characteristic of his persona. A resident of Universal Studios Hollywood, MEGATRON is one of the stars of Universal Studios Hollywood’s thrill ride, “Transformers™: The Ride-3D.”
