The Chinese Lantern Festival burns a hole in the night for the second year in a row. In addition to the multitude of towering, glowing lanterns of last year, new attractions have been added. This year visitors may board the Royal Dragon Boat, complete with long on-board pagoda for a small additional charge and take in the view from the water and close-ups of the other giant lanterns. Great for taking in the view like royalty.

What a wonderful way to ring in the Year of the Horse! The Chinese Lantern Festival includes shows and performances this year on the Grand China Stage near the Porcelain Pagoda. Nightly at 6:30 p.m. and 8 p.m., magic takes stage with scenes from the Chinese opera, face-changers and acrobat-like feats.

Food from the far East and arts and crafts add texture to the festival. There isn't much time left to enjoy it. The festival is only open through January 5th. Tickets are $22 for adults and $14 for children ages four to twelve and can be bought online or at the gate. The festival opens at 5:30 p.m. and lasts until 10:30 p.m. daily.
