Disney always goes all out for the holidays, so when they set their sights to Easter they manage to come up some amazingly detailed delights that are as pleasing to the eyes as they are to the taste buds. With that in mind, here are some of the fascinating chocolate egg displays, festive foods, and holiday brunches that have recently been highlighted by the Disney Parks Blog in anticipation of Easter Sunday:
Easter Egg Displays
On display through April 9th will be the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa‘s 7th annual Easter Egg Display. The Grand Floridian Bakery Team has designed an awe-inspiring assortment of eggs showcased in the resort’s lobby; each egg is constructed from “edible products such as modeling chocolate, fondant, sugar floral royal icing, colored cocoa butter, and sculpted sugar art pieces.”
From March 30th through April 1st, guests will be able to enjoy a colorful collection displayed at Animal Kingdom Lodge‘s Boma – Flavors of Africa with “eggs inspired by Up, Moana, Peter Pan, and more!”
The Contemporary‘s Bakery Team has outdone themselves for their sixth annual Easter Egg Display, which will be viewable in the resort’s first floor lobby through April 4th. The inspiration for this year’s arrangement comes from “popular animated classics such as Beauty and the Beast, Alice in Wonderland, Jungle Book, Lilo & Stitch, and more.” The display also contains an egg decorated with signatures from beloved Disney Characters.
Lastly, guests will not only be able to catch Disney’s Beach Club Resort‘s egg assortment through April 3rd, but custom Mickey and Minnie chocolate eggs can be purchased through April 1st.
Both Sunshine Seasons and Fountain View will have special Easter-themed cupcakes on offer. Fountain View’s cupcake — marshmallow-filled chocolate topped with buttercream icing — will be available from March 30th through April 2nd. Sunshine Seasons’ new treat, available only on April 1st, will have “an adorable fondant bunny with buttercream, cookies and cream crumble, and jelly beans all on top of a vanilla cupcake.”
Guests can grab one of these new cupcakes through April 2nd by visiting The Trolley Car Café, Rosie’s All-American Café, Fairfax Fare, and ABC Commissary. This bunny-themed cupcake “comes with raspberry filling and is topped with buttercream frosting and white chocolate bunny ears.”
Through April 1st, Creature Comforts will be offering this lime curd filled vanilla cupcake with a coconut buttercream topping and decorative fondant eggs.
