Photo Tour: The 2016 Grand Floridian Resort Chocolate Easter Egg Display

It’s time once again to celebrate a GRAND tradition… the Fifth Annual Easter Egg Display at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort!

And it’s become something of a tradition for us here at the DFB to share them with you in case your spring break plans don’t include a visit to Disney World this year. (If they DO, you’ll want to note that the Eggs are on display through April 4th.)

The Grand Floridian Bakery Team has designed these beautiful, edible Easter ornaments for twenty years, though up until five years ago they were only displayed in the Resort’s restaurants. These days each chocolate egg creation is available for everyone to see, spaced throughout various areas of the Grand Floridian lobby.

As always, several of the eggs pay homage to many Disney characters we know and love.

Because the pastry chefs are given creative freedom over the design of the eggs (it takes over three weeks to create one), you’ll always spot some truly unexpected gems.

Though we’re sharing the new 2016 Easter Eggs in this post, several of the eggs from the 2014 Display and the 2015 Display can be seen again this year. That’s because some of the eggs are able to be preserved. One of our favorites that we are happy to see again is the Peter Pan egg with a beautifully detailed map of Neverland.

Another returning egg to look for is the Sleeping Beauty Egg, which is encased in glass because it has been on display in front of the Garden View Lounge throughout the year (so keep an eye out at the Grand Floridian to see if you can catch one of the eggs even if you miss the Easter festivities!).

And finally, we’re back to where we started — this is the same Grand Floridian Wedding Easter Egg we showed at the beginning of this post.

A Cast Member shared with us that the design is actually a nod to the framed linen that is hanging on the wall directly in front of the egg.

So just as in the rest of Disney World, it’s all in the detail with these beautiful creations. Many thanks to the Bakery Team at Disney’s Grand Floridian for sharing the Grand Floridian Easter Eggs again this year!

    Wow…wow…did I say WOW? These are spectacular. Looking forward to checking them out. BTW, is there a “charge” to see the display?

  2. Marcos Valenca says

    Please, what does Disney’s Grand Floridian do with these eggs after displaying them? Are they sold?

  3. Essie says

    The eggs are just beautiful. I hope to get to another flower festival some year and when I do, I’ll be sure to see the egg display.

  4. Richard says

    OK, let’s vote…

    Which one would AJ be most likely to ask for as a ‘free’ sample…

    I’m saying Peter Pan…

  5. Christine Patton says

    We found a few hidden Mickey’s too. Couldn’t believe there were 30 eggs! And could smell the chocolate even with all the flowers around!
