Epcot's Easter Egg Hunt

Disney World doesn't do much for Easter, but Epcot does have a fun little egg hunt around the World Showcase. The hunt lasts from April 10th through the 20th, so if you don't/didn't catch it, don't worry; I've got you covered. Please, walk this way:
While there are no Easter decorations in the park, it does fall during the Flower & Garden Festival, so Epcot is already decked out in its flowery best.

Plus, fun fact: Epcot is home to lots and LOTS of wild bunnies. We weren't even looking, but still managed to spot four or five different little hoppers around the park that day:

I overheard someone asking if Disney brought the bunnies in special for Easter. Hee! (Sometimes we like to mess with tourists by exclaiming how lifelike Disney's animatronics are getting - which works especially well with the deer you see along the roadways. Hehehe.)

Anyone can hunt for the eggs in each country, but to get the little map & prize at the end you have to pay $5 - super cheap for Disney, so I say go for it. Here's the map:

You place each sticker in the country where you find that egg. Easy-peasy.

The eggs you're looking for are huge - about two feet tall -  and range from "ridiculously obvious" to "kind of hard to spot" so it really is a game for all ages. Even though it's a little too easy, John and I still had fun with it - and it encourages you to really LOOK at each of the countries, which is nice. There are so many details even we locals walk by without really seeing.

Spoilers ahead, so if you don't want to know where the eggs are, GO NO FURTHER. (I don't know if they change the eggs' locations each year, but they probably do.)

 A good rule of thumb is to look up; lots of rooftop a balcony eggs.

You can only see the front of most of the eggs, so I was delighted to see both wings and back spikes painted on Figment's:

 Thumper's egg was waaaay up high on the water tower over the Cool Outpost:

Here's the most hidden egg of all. See it?

Dooby dooby doo wa dooby dooby doo...


Mickey was another tough one; that roof top was really high, so the sun's glare made it hard to spot.

Again, most were pretty easy, though:

Or really really easy:

Whether you finish the egg hunt or not, you still get a prize when you bring your map back:

Sadly you only get one, but for me, the choice was easy.

Then I set out to find the prettiest patch of flowers for my egg's photo shoot:


(There's nothing inside the egg, but it does open.)

Aaand I'll leave you with a pretty flower picture:

Happy weekend, everyone!


  1. That's freaking adorable!

    Your photos came out amazing too :)

    Again and again, you bring a little bit of happy to the weekend! Thanks for posting. I had no idea Epcot did an Easter egg hunt. Maybe someday I can bring the kiddos down to see it in person. But for now, I am calling them all in to share in the loveliness of your pictures!

  3. All I could think of when I saw the picture of the "most hidden" egg was, "Don't blink!"

    1. When I was in Epcot in January, I took a "don't blink!" pic with that exact statue. I can't see an angel statue and not get a little terrified.

  4. We were at Disneyland last weekend & noticed a few eggs :) (Didnt realize there were maps until late in the trip haha)
    Some were in California Adventure too... very cute pics!!!

  5. Donald is an eggcellent choice! He's my favorite.

  6. Donald is the best. My favorite!

  7. Beautiful photos! Cute cottontails!

    Until you mentioned it in the previous post, I had no idea Epcot had an egg hunt. Pretty cool. Although, I think I would've rather seen how many wild bunnies I could find. Of course, there's not a cool plastic toy reward for that.

    I had to Google Perry. He seems out-of-place with all the more traditional Disney characters. But maybe they include one modern character that they change every year?

    Hope you and John have a very happy Easter, and hope you're doing something outside in this beautiful weather.


  8. I want all of those little tiny eggs!

  9. OK, you're going to love this! He's got more great stuff if you check out his FB (personified Simba & Scar, etc.) ~

  10. My hubby did the egg hunt at both Disneyland and CA Adventure (I couldn't go that weekend). He got a Donald for one park and Daisy for the other, so now we have a cute little matching set. Love it!

  11. How Fun! :)
