Top Ways to Celebrate Easter at Disney World

by Mommy Frog on March 31, 2015 1 Orlando

Easter is easily one of the busiest holidays at the World Disney World Resort, bringing together plenty of families and friends who are looking to enjoy quality time in one of the funnest places in the world. For those of you who will be hop-hop-hopping like a bunny (or us frogs!) at the parks, there is plenty of Easter fun to be had! We've put together this list of our favorite ways to celebrate Easter at Disney World. If you'll be in the parks over Easter, be sure to share with us how you plan to honor the holiday. Let's get hopping!

1. Start your day with church service. 

Church services will be held on-site in the Fantasia Ballroom at Disney's Contemporary Resort on Easter Sunday. Catholic Mass will be celebrated at 8 a.m. and 10:15 a.m., and a protestant service will be held at 9 a.m. Parking at the hotel will be limited to on-site guests. It is recommended that guests staying at a monorail resort use the monorail. Other guests may park at Transportation and Ticket Center and take either the resort monorail loop to the hotel or head to Magic Kingdom and take a bus to the hotel, or take a cab.

2. Hunt for eggs at Epcot.

Now through April 5, guests can hunt for special hidden eggs that resemble Disney characters throughout the park. Purchase maps and stickers at the following locations:

  • Heritage Manor Gifts (American Adventure Pavilion)
  • Pin Central
  • Plaza Towers (Port of Entry)
  • World Traveler (International Gateway).

Once you're done, return with your map to any of these locations for a special prize!

3. Visit the gigantic chocolate eggs at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.

The executive pastry chef and his team at Disney's Grand Floridian begin working on the exquisite hand-painted chocolate eggs in January, each between 16 and 20 inches tall. They are on display now at the hotel for anyone to enjoy!

4. Meet the Easter Bunny at Magic Kingdom.
