Photo Tour: The 2014 Grand Floridian Resort Easter Egg Display in Walt Disney World

Upon entering Disney World’s Grand Floridian Resort, you’ll find something that may distract you from the sights of the lobby, as stunning as it is. From now through April 22, you can enjoy the Third Annual Easter Egg Display!

And it’s certainly something to see, because these aren’t just any Easter Eggs… these are 9-12 pound chocolate Easter Eggs created and crafted by Disney Chefs!

For those who may not be able to catch this display in person, we thought we’d bring it to you :) .

As the sign states, the Grand Floridian Easter Egg tradition has held for 18 years; however, the eggs could previously be seen only in the Resort’s restaurants. But now, for the third year in a row, they are on display in the lobby for everyone to enjoy. It’s definitely a treat to see what the Bakery Team comes up with!

As you look at these creations, it’s fun to note that every egg is decorated with “edible products such as  modeling chocolate, fondant, sugar floral, royal icing, colored cocoa butter and sculpted sugar art pieces.”
Yep — it’s all edible!

Chefs are given a blank “canvas,” along with the freedom to bring to life whatever vision they wish. So, you’ll see that the decorated eggs range from classic Easter themes

Some of the details are not only intricate, they’re also humorous. This street of Bunny Homes lists Brer, Peter, Oswald, Thumper, and Foo Foo among its residents :).

    Very cool. Thanks for sharing. Thou I do wonder what the front of the Brave Egg looks like.

  4. Wendy says:

    Wow! These are incredible. Makes me want to make a spring trip to see them in person sometime!

  5. Wendy says:

    Happy Spring, everyone! Glad you can enjoy the display this way :).

    Trisha, I know what you mean… I was pretty bummed I didn’t have good luck getting a shot of the front of the “Brave” egg, and I’m sorry about that (it has Merida and her bow and arrow). As it turned out, the shelf next to the back of the egg obstructed my photos from one side, and the egg next to it obstructed my shots from the other. It was kind of funny — I tried to lean over the rope as far as I could without looking I was trying to take a bite out of the eggs… not to say I wasn’t tempted ;).

  6. Sylvia says:

    You did a beautiful job capturing this awesome display! DFB is on my radar every morning to see the best of the best and all things Disney! Excited to be able to see this creation in 9 days :) thanks!!!

  7. Deena says:

    Simply amazing! It is so great that they have chosen to share such wonderful talent with all who pass through the GF lobby. Happy Easter indeed!

  8. Joni says:

    Very Pretty, Wonder what they do with them when Easter is over. I bet by them they wouldn’t taste too good but I bet they could make some nice $ by auctioning them off. Or make some little ones extremely happy.

  9. Angie Vitale says:

    They are beautiful! Thank you.

  10. Randi says:

    Sometimes it still amazes me how people can be so talented at making food into art. I got to say, though, out of all the eggs pictured, the only one that actually made me say “wow” was the steampunk egg! That thing looks so darn cool!

  11. Cheri says:

    I love these Easter Eggs. I wish so much Disney would decorate for Easter again it was so beautiful. I liked it even more than Christmas.

  12. Eileen says:

    I know that the Lady and the Tramp egg is my favorite. I love everything Lady and the Tramp. Also, I like the Little Mermaid egg also.

  13. Christina says:

    THESE EGGS ARE JUST GORGEOUS

  14. Francyann says:

  15. Sora says:

    All the eggs are gorgeous, but my favorite is “Frozen”. What a treat that would be!!!

    I know what I will be doing now this week on hubby’s day off

  22. CJ says:

    These eggs are exquisite and phenomenal; art made out of sugar. I can’t really pick a favorite but my 3 favorite are: Arial egg, Frozen egg, and ornate white laced and floral egg. Thank you for the incredible pictures but I bet they look so much better in person. I wish I lived closer to WDW to check out the various festivities more often. Again, thanks for the pictures.

  23. sammy says:

    The eggs are gorgeous. I love what they do at Disney. Their work is incredible. My favorite egg is the Frozen egg. It is exquisite. The details are beautiful.

  24. Sasha says:

    Is it possible to visit the resort as a visitor without staying there?

  25. Wendy says:

    Hi, Sasha! Yes, guests not staying at the resort can visit, and if you’re at Disney on vacation, you can bus over to the Grand Floridian from any park or Downtown Disney. If you plan to drive, at busier times of the year such as this (spring break), sometimes the resorts have to limit parking to only Resort guests, so I’ve often taken the monorail from the Magic Kingdom to visit the Grand Floridian. Hope that helps!
