The Lunar Festival is in full swing and today we got our third and final character unlocked with seemingly plenty of time to spare. Mulan, as many of you might know, is one of my favorite Disney characters and it was great to finally get to welcome her to the party. I have to say, I’ve loved the lower stress level of this event and it’s been nice not having to worry about a big bad villain at the end of it all. That being said, let’s take a look at what it takes to get Mulan. We’ll also be building the gem based Lantern Attraction as well as the Ancestor’s Shrine! Are you ready? Well, I’m afraid to tell you that we’re jumping in whether you are or not. Let’s Go!
We’re going to skip over the basic token as you should already have a stockpile or at least know who can get you a bunch of them fast with super short quests.
The two main tokens here are both rare but luckily a HUGE collection of characters drop them. I will also point out that the Lantern Attraction, which I’ll discuss in a moment, drops both the rare tokens and it seems to do it with pretty good frequency. If you’re looking to nab Mulan quickly, the attraction may be a good investment for you.
Again, the Lantern Attraction is key here. However, if you have managed to get Lunar Minnie into play, she also has a great quest to drop the hats as well. Keep in mind that you’ll have several 2 hour quests and several 4 hour quests, so there are lots of opportunities to grab this particular token.
Keep plugging away and eventually you’ll fill up all your requirements!
And voila, Mulan will join your kingdom, ready to help out with the festival in any way she can.
This will also complete your Mulan collection which will hand you a few extra gems!
Before we continue on with the quests, I want to talk about the Lantern Attraction. As of this morning, it can be built at any time. It is amazing for collecting Mulan tokens as it drops both of the rare ones and is able to do that every two hours. Besides that it simply looks amazing. This is one of the more unique attractions in the park and the artistry of it is divine. I am a huge fan of Chinese style architecture so for me this was a MUST have. You can grab it in a special promo BUT I think it’s actually more worth it to just spend the 150 gems. After all, event currency, which also comes in the promo, is just too easy to get for free. You really don’t need to spend money on it.
THE STORY CONTINUES
Mulan arrives ready to help out in any way she can! She’s heard Shang’s message loud and clear…
And if she can just find him, she might be able to answer it.
Eventually Li Shang shows up. But Mulan is like the girl in every 90’s movie who completely overestimated the cute boy’s ability to understand that she likes him.
Military consultant? Li Shang, that is an awfully weird way of saying ‘girlfriend.’ Maybe you should try again.
But seriously, this is the plot of every 90’s teen drama. I’ve seen this one before. The boy is too embarrassed to ask the girl to the dance so he comes up with some ludicrous excuse to invite her. No Mulan, we’re not going to the festival, like, together! No, no, no. You’re going as my military consultant. Oh, but don’t forget, I get to hold hands with the military consultant. You know, one of those strange traditions and all. Hey! I didn’t make the rules!
While you’ll once again get two quests, the one you want to start with is this one that involves both Li AND Mulan discussing the fact that they’re not ACTUALLY on a date. Obviously!
Luckily, just like many women, Mulan is on to Li Shang and can read between his socially inept boyness.
Wait a minute. I thought we were talking about Li Shang but now you’re getting into sighting along barrels and wind and…Mulan! Are you implying something! *Dramatic Gasp!*
Oh, you actually WERE talking about rockets. I guess the theme of this event has been blowing things up. I shouldn’t really be surprised.
Meanwhile, Shang is still going on about something random, instead of asking Mulan out. Just do it Li! Do it or I’ll get Sebastian to sing to you guys in a boat. Don’t try me! I’ll do it!
Shang, the next quest we’re going to send Mulan on is one where she face palms at how clueless you are.
Mulan tries desperately to get Shang back on the track OF LOVE!
But once again forgets the most pressing problem of our time. Boys are dumb.
Once again, it’s time to set off firecrackers. You’ll need to do 10 every hour until you hit 120 of them.
BUILDING THE ANCESTOR’S SHRINE
With the plans set out for the demonstration, Mulan decides she needs a place to contemplate the fact that she likes a boy that’s too lost in his own tofu drama to ask her out.
Ag this point you’ll be able to build the shrine, another large attraction.
The shrine costs a whopping 15,000 tokens and will take 12 hours to build. I want to take a moment here to mention that, although it required some trial and error, I was able to fit these onto the map with every single other attraction, meaning that, if you have all the land available, it CAN be done. I promise!
And that’s where I leave you for the day!
As some of you know, tomorrow is my birthday!!! For said day, I’ll be doing a 4 park challenge at Disney. This means that we’ll be going to each of the four parks in one day. At each park, we will be riding 1 ride, meeting 1 character and eating 1 amazing dessert. If you happen to have the low down on an amazing dessert, let me know in the comments! I’ll be doing a big blog post afterwards, but in the meantime, you can follow me on Instagram and Facebook to see the fun as it happens, and if you see me in the parks tomorrow, make sure to wave a hearty “HELLO!”
