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!
There are no shortage of Disney characters on display, including the entire Toy Story gang.
Peter Pan tops off this egg complete with a map of Neverland.
Never one to be outdone, Tinkerbell tops her own egg, too!
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.
The Rapunzel eggs make their return this year.
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!!
