Springtime is here, so you know it’s time to get back on the Epcot egg hunt at the Walt Disney World Parks!
Does Disney World do anything for Easter?
Walt Disney World changes up the activities each year around the resort in honor of this springtime holiday.
One of the most popular events is the Egg Hunt that takes place around Epcot World Showcase.
From April 5th through April 21st 2019, you will be able to search for all the special hidden “eggs” themed to Disney characters throughout Epcot.
This event is an annual experience that takes place during springtime and is a wonderful activity for groups of friends and family to do together.
You will also be able to record your discoveries by placing the corresponding sticker on the themed Egg-stravaganza map.
How Does the Epcot Egg Hunt Work?
- You have to first stop by one of the participating Epcot Egg-stravaganza locations inside the park
- Pick up map with stickers to place Disney character eggs once you find the egg
- Go through and find each Disney character-themed egg
- Return to one of the participating Egg-stravaganza locations and receive your very own mini Disney character-themed egg to take home
How Much Does the Epcot Egg Hunt Cost?
The maps and stickers for the Epcot Egg-stravaganza can be purchased for $6.99, plus tax at the following Epcot locations:
I’ve done the Epcot Egg-stravaganza activity before, and it’s a pretty cool way to discover Epcot. It’s so much fun being able to explore World Showcase at the park in a very unique way.
The Epcot Egg-stravaganza takes place during the Flower and Garden Festival.
The Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival has definitely blossomed into its own major festival at Walt Disney World. I thought it would be great to give you some basics tips on how to maximize your time at the festival.
7 Easy Tips for the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival
1 – Go During the Weekdays
Anyone visiting Walt Disney World on a regular day knows that going at the right time is extremely important. This concept is even more important during special events and holidays.
That’s why I recommend attending the Flower & Garden Festival during the weekday (Monday through Thursday) in order to optimize your international globe hopping experience at Epcot.
2 – Get there Early
We’ve all heard the saying…
“the early bird catches the worm, you snooze, you lose”
…so on and so on.
It’s the classic tip for any theme park visitor, especially any Disney guest.
Coming early to the Epcot Flower & Garden Festival will give you a chance to pace yourself by allowing you to enjoy the festival attractions in both Future World and World Showcase.
3 – Attend the Tours
There’s no better way to enjoy the event than attending the amazing educational garden tours, which are mostly free or budget friendly.
A plus is that you will get to meet many of your favorite floral and topiary presenters in a much more relaxed environment compared to the Epcot Food and Wine Festival.
4 – Grab a Garden Passport
The passport is a pamphlet that allows you to personalize it with your name, country, date issued, and date of completion.
It also includes the locations of the topiaries, the outdoor kitchen offerings, merchandise options, and concert information. Stickers are also included for you to mark off which kitchen you’ve visited.
5 – Buy a Disney Wristlet Gift Card
For the typical pro foodie, savoring the many samples is a must.
However, doing this without a set budget could turn a fun trip into one of financial regret…
…trust me, I’ve made this mistake a few times.
Buying the wristlet gift card will also prevent any unexpected credit card swiping if you’re a bit tipsy from the adult libations.
6 – Split the Cost
Going with a friend or two or three always turns an already great journey into one of epicness!
Just ask my friends.
It also means that if you’re on a budget and down for sharing, then you can really try most of the dishes without leaving the park financially wounded.
7 – Book Your Top Epcot FastPasses and Reservations ASAP
FastPasses to the hottest attractions to any of the newest rides such as the Frozen Ever After at Epcot need to be booked like yesterday!
Trust me, you will thank me later for this.
Hipster Power Tip: When choosing FastPasses for Epcot be sure to choose at least one of the following attractions due to popularity: Frozen Ever After, Soarin Around the World, or Test Track.
In addition to booking your FastPasses, you’ll want to make other reservations early too.
Walt Disney World is the top tourist destinations in the world. This is an advantage for you, because you will never have to think of what to do while taking your solo trip.
