Photo Tour: The 2015 Grand Floridian Resort Easter Egg Display in Walt Disney World

It’s one of my favorite times of the year at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort!

Every spring in the weeks preceding Easter, the Grand Floridian Bakery Team is given the opportunity to create some absolutely spectacular Easter Eggs for guests to enjoy. And the best part? The Eggs are made of CHOCOLATE. There are other ingredients involved, too, such as fondant, icing, and cocoa butter. But no matter what they are made of, they are all edible!

The Easter Eggs have been a Grand Floridian tradition for 19 years, but this is just the fourth year that the eggs have been on display for every guest who passes through the Grand Floridian lobby.

Something new this year… previously the Eggs were all displayed in one row directly at the lobby entrance. This year, the eggs are grouped in smaller displays in different areas around the lobby. Since some of the eggs are preserved from year to year (you may recognize some familiar ones from the 2014 Easter Egg display), the collection just keeps on growing!

The Easter Eggs are on display through April 10th. But in case Walt Disney World isn’t part of your 2015 spring break plans, we wanted to bring the Eggs to you once again this year!

One of the centerpiece eggs for 2015 is an edible replica of Cinderella’s Golden Coach.

The classic Disney animated version of Cinderella received a tribute as well.

In an echo of the fountain in the lobby of the Grand Floridian Disney Vacation Club Villas, the penguins from Mary Poppins have come out to play!

And what’s a day at Disney World anymore without spotting this face ;) ?

Nothing against Queen Elsa, but it is totally awesome to see some less-heralded characters get a little love this year, too. I think I audibly gasped when I saw

the Hercules egg!

And the last thing I egg-spected to see (I know, sorry…) was a Great Mouse Detective egg! SO awesome!!

I think this Enchanted Rose egg representing Beauty and the Beast is simply gorgeous.

And every side of this egg celebrates something near and dear to many of our hearts… Disney Dogs!

But again, the chefs are given free creative reign, so it’s not only Disney characters and film moments represented. Some designs definitely convey a more traditional Easter feel.

The details on the painted eggs are so striking. The next three images are different sides of the same egg.

Not only are the colors on this Peacock egg beautiful, it’s almost hard to remember that those feathers aren’t real.

Once again, the team at the Grand Floridian has put on an impressive and beautiful display. We hope you enjoyed this tour, and wish you a very Happy Spring!!

    Wow!!! What amazing talents they have!
    Really appreciate this post for those of us who simply can’t be there.

    And as for the Hercules egg – yaaaaaaaay! One of my favourite movies. An underrated gem getting the love it deserves!

  2. Emily says

    I was thrilled to see the Great Mouse Detective Egg! It’s always been one of my favorite Disney movies, and seeing it represented on Disney property in any form was so exciting! I always hold out hope that some of the lesser known but equally brilliant films will start to get more exposure in the parks.

    Those elsa and rapunzel eggs are from last year! I thought they were supposed to use new eggs every year.

    We were at The Grand Floridian last night to see these beautiful creations and they did NOT disappoint. I absolutely loved every single one of them. The attention to detail and beauty is absolutely stunning. My favorite was the traditional Easter theme with the golden hue and the amazing sugar flowers. You cleared up a mystery for me (it seems so obvious now). I wondered what the marble one was and never dreamed it was Rapunzel’s hair!

    You’re also so right to say how nice it is to see some of the older unappreciated movies as well. Or themed like the Disney dogs. We toured the eggs, ooh-ahhing and taking pictures and then we enjoyed dinner at Trail’s End and the Chip and Dale Campfire and movie. It was a wonderful Disney evening!!! Especially for us as we let our annual passes expire for a big UK trip this summer and we are missing our Spring Break week at WDW!!!

    Thank you for sharing again!! I loved seeing these pictures of the easter eggs last year and had hoped you would share pictures again this year.

    They are edible, right? Who gets to eat them? I know that they are made more from “design” sugars which are meant to accent deserts and not be the main desert but… still… I guess what I’m saying is…

    When the display is done I really want to take a hammer crack some of them into pieces and nom nom nom nom nom!

    I love the Cinderella eggs and I think the artwork on the first Rapunzel egg is excellent (or should that be eggcellent?). I also think the Toy Story characters are cute and the peacock is exquisite. Thanks for sharing them with us.

  8. Angelina says

    These are gorgeous…especially the Enchanted Rose one. Wish I could have been there to see them in person but thanks for sharing since I couldn’t!

  9. Christine says

    Wow thank you so much for sharing these fab photos. I never cease to be amazed by Disney only wish I could be there to see them. They are all my favourites!
