Panda Express Partners with Disney/Pixar for ‘Turning Red’ Panda Cub Meal Sweepstakes

Pixar - Turning Red

Panda Express restaurants have partnered with Disney and Pixar’s latest film, “Turning Red,” for a Panda Cub Meal promotion, including a sweepstakes.

In 2021, Panda Express introduced the new Panda Cub Meals, created based on the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) dietary recommendations for children. Staying on top of the latest in nutrition science, Panda Cub Meals are approved by the National Restaurant Association’s Kids LiveWell™ Program.

Each of the three available meals offers an excellent source of fiber, at least 11 grams of protein, one serving of fruit, and comes with Treetop Apple Crisps, as well as a choice of water or juice.

In honor of the movie, Panda Express worked with Disney and Pixar to create an exclusive “Turning Red” packaging and sticker sheet (while supplies last) that comes with the purchase of a Panda Cub Meal.

Turning Red Panda Cub Meal Sweepstakes

Also, through April 1, 2022, guests who order a Panda Cub Meal and keep a copy of their receipt can enter for the chance to win big.

Eligible participants in the U.S. and Canada can visit to enter for a chance to win prizes valued between $188 and $10,000, as well as learn more about the official rules, free method of entry and detailed prize descriptions.

One grand prize winner will receive a $10,000 education fund, plus eight first prize winners will receive a year’s supply of Panda Cub Meals and an exclusive gift basket with gear from Panda Express and “Turning Red,” and eight second prize winners will receive a $100 check and an $88 Panda Express gift card (the number 8 is believed to be the luckiest number in China because ‘8’ is associated with wealth).

Disney and Pixar’s “Turning Red” introduces Mei Lee (voice of Rosalie Chiang), a confident, dorky 13-year-old torn between staying her mother’s dutiful daughter and the chaos of adolescence. Her protective, if not slightly overbearing mother, Ming (voice of Sandra Oh), is never far from her daughter—an unfortunate reality for the teenager. As if changes to her interests, relationships, and body weren’t enough, whenever she gets too excited (which is practically ALWAYS), she “poofs” into a giant red panda!

Directed by Academy Award® winner Domee Shi (Pixar short “Bao”) and produced by Lindsey Collins, “Turning Red” streams on Disney+ beginning March 11, 2022.
