As we inch ever closer to Easter Sunday (April 1st), a question we here at Disney Addicts are getting asked quite a lot is what Disney World does to ring in this special Spring holiday. If you’ll be visiting Disney during this time, there are actually several ways to add a bit of Easter magic to your holiday plans. To give you just a taste of the offerings in store here is our list of 7 ways to ring in the Easter holiday at Walt Disney World Resort.
1. Sunday Church Service at Disney’s Contemporary Resort – For those looking to attend church services on Easter Sunday, Disney’s Contemporary Resort will be hosting a Catholic Mass in the Fantasia Ballroom at 8am & 10:30am. A Protestant service will also be held at 9:15 am. Guests staying at one of Disney’s Monorail Resorts can hop the monorail for the services. For guests staying at other properties, you can take Disney transportation from your resort to Magic Kingdom and either walk (about a 5-10 minute stroll) or hop the monorail. Minnie Van rentals are also available via the lyft app for those preferring to go door to door.
2. Enjoy an Easter Brunch at Maria & Enzo’s at Disney Springs – One of Disney’s Springs newest eateries Maria & Enzo’s will be serving up an Easter brunch with a bit of Italian flair. Highlights will include carving stations and made-to-order frittatas. The restaurant will showcase their speciality dishes including Panettone French Toast, Classic Lasagna or Braised Chicken Breast. And let’s not forget dessert where you can choose between a range of delicious parfaits or our favorite the cannolis! Reservations are strongly encouraged and can be found HERE.
3. Easter-themed Krispie Treats at Main Street Confectionary – Pop by this Main Street U.S.A sweetshop in the Magic Kingdom and you’ll be able to see the first signs of Easter. Check out these beautiful treats that come in bunny or Easter Egg shapes and are adorned with a seasonal array of pastel colors. These treats can be yours for $4.99 or 1 Snack Credit on the Disney Dining Plan.
4. Go on the Egg-stravanza Scavenger Hunt at Epcot’s World Showcase – Visitors heading to Epcot from March 16 – April 1st can participate in this special seasonal scavenger hunt which will have you searching around the World Showcase for hidden eggs that feature some of your favorite Disney Characters. Guests will be given a map to mark your findings. The map is $5.99 and can be purchased at Disney Trader, Pin Central and World Traveler. Once you’ve found all the eggs you return to Disney Traders where a special Easter surprise awaits.
5. Arrange for a Special Easter Basket to be Delivered to Your Room – Why not surprise your little ones with a special Disney-themed treat from the Easter bunny delivered straight to your resort room where it will be waiting for you after your theme park days. Disney Floral & Gifts are offering two Disney-themed Easter Baskets for purchase at $125.00 each. The Minnie’s Princess Bunny Basket comes with krispie treats, jelly beans, chocolate bunnies, a coloring book, princess ears, crayons and a Minnie plush. There’s also Mickey’s Pirate Bunny Basket which includes all of the candy and treats listed above but with Pirate Mickey ears, Pirate Mickey plush and activity kit. Visit Disney Floral & Gifts to find out more.
6. Meet Mr. & Mrs. Easter Bunny at Town Square – Though Disney World hasn’t announced anything official for this year, in year’s past Mr. & Mrs. Easter Bunny have been on hand to meet guests and pose for pictures at Town Square in the Magic Kingdom. We’ll be on the lookout for dates and times for this magical meetup and promise to keep you posted.
7. Check out the Easter Eggs at the Grand Floridian – If you’re hopping the monorail this Easter Season, you may want to pop by Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Disney’s Contemporary Resort to catch a glimpse of these incredible works of art. Each year the pastry teams at both resorts pull out all the stops in creating these Easter-themed works of art. No word yet on if and when they’ll be on display this year but you’ll usually find them in the main lobby of the Grand Floridian and under the Mary Blair Mural at the Contemporary.
These are just a few of the many ways to ring in Easter at Walt Disney World this year. We expect more exciting Easter details to be released as April 1st approaches. Keep following along with Disney Addicts and our sister site Chip and Co. for the latest in Easter news and updates.
