It’s all about seeing the Mouse at Easter – Mickey Mouse, that is. If you’re at Walt Disney World during the holidays, you might be wondering if there is anything festive to do.
It is worth noting that Disney will be very crowded during the Easter period – especially in 2018 – as the holiday crowds and spring break’ers head to Disney.
I’ve compiled a quick list below of some of the things you can do at Disney during Easter.
1. Mr and Mrs Bunny at Magic Kingdom
If you’re visiting Magic Kingdom and fancy taking the kids (or yourself!) to meet the Easter bunny, then you’ll want to get yourself down to the Town Square Courtyard. You can meet Mr and Mrs Bunny at selected times beginning 19 March right through to May 2018.
2. Easter egg hunt at Epcot
If you’re wanting to get the kids involved in an Easter egg hunt or other activities, there are plenty of opportunities over at Epcot. Epcot has the Egg hunts, Basket Toss and Relays activity in the UK pavillion. This gives kids all the fun of a Easter Egg Hunt (ages 3-9), along with the fast-paced Easter Egg Relay (ages 8-12). If you have kids under 3, there is also a mini egg hunt for them too!
If you’re really looking for a challenge, Epcot also has the Egg-stravaganza scavenger hunt, where you’ll be able to search for Disney themed eggs all over the park and mark them on your map in order to get a egg-citing prize at the end! Sinply head to Pin Central in Future World, Disney Traders to purchase a map and stickers (approx $5.99+tax).
3. Treat yourself to the incredible Easter cakes and sweets
Ahh, Easter really is the time for treating yourself. But if you’re fed up of the constant supply of chocolate candy, then you should head on over to Epcot to try the incredible selection of cakes.
Fountain View (in Future World) offers a speciality chocolate cupcake with marshmallow filing, buttercream frosting bunny feet and a tail.
Failing that, head on over to Sunshine Seasons in The Land, where you’ll be entice with a chocolate chip cupcake – filled with chocolate-caramel mousse, topped with buttercream and sprinkles of crushed chocolate cookies and jelly beans. mmmmmm, my mouth is watering just thinking about it!
4. Church Services
On Easter Sunday, Disney offer church services in their Contemporary Resort hotel. So if you’re staying on site and want to go to church on Easter Sunday the option is available. Disney offer separate Easter services for Catholics and Protestants, so I’d recommend calling ahead to check the times for each.
5. Easter meals / dining
There are plenty of places on Disney property that will be offering different dining options for Easter day. As Disney will be really busy during the holiday period, it’s worth noting that availability may be stretched or even impossible for some of these restaurants but it’s definitely worth a shot as they’re all really nice places to eat.
- Paddlefish will feature a speciality Easter set menu.
- STK Orlando – will be offering a speciality brunch offering.
- Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant – A speciality brunch offering.
