Our ~Hoppy~ Guide to Celebrating Easter at Disney World

by Mommy Frog on March 11, 2024 1 Orlando

Many families use their spring breaks or Easter breaks to head on down to Walt Disney World. Easter at Disney World is one of the busier holidays of the year, bringing together plenty of families and friends who are looking to enjoy quality time in one of the hoppiest places in the world. (Be sure to use our no-stress tips for surviving spring break crowds to help with your magical visit!)

Easter at Disney World has lots of eggcellent offerings such as themed treats, an egg scavenger hunt, beautiful art displays and even meeting the Easter Bunny himself! Magic Kingdom and EPCOT have the most Easter offerings, along with the resorts. (Thumper was always my go-to Disney bunny, though Judy Hopps might be my newest favorite)!

Easter falls on March 31 this year and most offerings are available for a limited time. 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. Let's hop to it!

All the Ways to Celebrate Easter at Disney World

1. Visit the Gigantic Egg Displays at Select Hotels

Easter at Disney World — Displays at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort

Easter at Disney World — Egg displayVarious Walt Disney World Resort hotels have egg-stra special displays up for Easter. You won't want to miss the iconic egg displays at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa, featuring dozens of hand-crafted large eggs featuring our favorite characters! My favorite might have to be the rotating "Beauty and the Beast" egg.

Typically, you'll also see displays at Disney's Contemporary Resort and Disney's Beach and Yacht Club Resorts. Note that a valid dining reservation is required to park at the resorts, so if you don't have one, you'll want to be prepared to park elsewhere and use Disney transportation.

2. Watch the Special Easter Parade at Magic Kingdom

Each Easter, Disney World puts on a special Easter cavalcade at Magic Kingdom. Enjoy seeing rare springtime characters, Mr. and Mrs. Easter Bunny and other fun Disney bunnies such as the White Rabbit. This mini-parade typically only occurs on Easter Weekend before the Festival of Fantasy parade.

3. Meet Mr. and Mrs. Easter Bunny

Guests can also meet Mr. and Mrs. Easter Bunny at the Liberty Square gazebo at Magic Kingdom. They are typically available from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. through March 31.

4. Hunt for Eggs at EPCOT

For a limited time at EPCOT, guests can hunt for special hidden eggs that resemble Disney characters. Purchase maps and stickers at select merchandise locations and return with your completed map for a special prize!

While at EPCOT, be sure to celebrate the blossoming of spring with EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival, hoppening now through May 27.

5. Start Your Day with Church Service

In past years, church services were typically held on-site in the Fantasia Ballroom at Disney's Contemporary Resort on Easter Sunday. Catholic Mass is often celebrated at 8 a.m. and 10:15 a.m., with a protestant service at 9 a.m. Parking at the hotel is limited to on-site guests so you'll want to park at the Transportation and Ticket Center and utilize Disney transportation. No word yet on whether on-site services will return in 2024.

6. Enjoy Themed Treats throughout Disney World

Easter at Disney World — Carrot Blondie Treat

Disney always wows us with its specialty food, and it's no different for Easter at Disney World. Enjoy adorable treats with so many fun bunny, carrot and egg designs. The Grand Floridian even has The Grand Cottage, a kiosk in the lobby (near the displays) with over 15 different kinds of hand-crafted treats for sale. Most offerings are available through April 1.

If considering a nice sit-down meal for the occasion, be sure to book your advanced dining reservations well ahead of time since it is a hoppin' time to visit.

You can find the following treats at Magic Kingdom (available now through March 31):

  • Mickey Spring Caramel Apple
  • Mickey Spring Cake Pop
  • Mickey Spring Cereal Treat
  • Spring Popcorn

The following resorts are offering:
