Easter Treats Around Walt Disney World — Including the 2017 Grand Floridian Chocolate Easter Eggs

Greetings from the Grand Floridian Resort!

Easter is always an especially festive time here, thanks to the tradition of the chocolate Easter Egg Display, presented by the Grand Floridian Bakery Team.

For the sixth year running, these specialty hollow chocolate eggs, decorated with fondant, sugar floral royal icing, cocoa butter, sugar art, and even more chocolate are on display around the Grand Floridian lobby. (The tradition itself is over 20 years old; however, the Eggs were previously only on display in Victoria & Albert’s and the Resort’s other restaurants).

As a note, a sign in the Grand Floridian stated the Eggs would be on display through April 19th; however, according to other information that Disney has presented, they may be on display as long as through the 29th.

Many of the Easter Eggs are preserved from year to year, so if you visited the display in, say, 2016 or 2015, you’ll notice several favorites from years past.

So today we’re taking a look at some of the new additions for 2017, starting with one of the first to greet you upon entering the lobby: the Evil Queen Egg.

I love this new and intricate Lion King Egg, bursting with animals!

Another standout this year is definitely the Cinderella “One Shoe Can Change Your Life” Egg, with its unusual shape and the glow that emits from the glass slipper.

Also utilizing a non-traditional design, this beautiful display — I believe it’s honoring the new Disneynature film, Born in China — shows a Panda family on their own Easter Egg hunt!

Moana received a couple of Egg tributes this year, too.

Because there are so many Eggs, they can’t all be contained at the front of the lobby anymore.

For instance, this Patriotic Egg sits in the forward center of the room.

Oh, and look who else just so happened to be at the Grand Floridian during our visit.

COINCIDENCE?!? I think not. ;)

Of course, there’s plenty more Easter fun where that came from…

Any holiday at Disney World is a reason for more SPECIALTY CUPCAKES!

The Contempo Cafe at Contemporary Resort will feature a Carrot Cake Cupcake (with white chocolate filling) and — on Easter Sunday — a Coconut Cupcake filled with chocolate cream will be topped with banana buttercream, bits of white chocolate, and jelly beans. Meanwhile, in Epcot, Fountain View is where you’ll spot the feet and tail of the Easter Bunny decorating a chocolate cupcake with marshmallow filling.

Look for more jelly bean-topped cupcakes at Sunshine Seasons, too.

Main Street Bakery’s vanilla cupcake will be sporting an Easter Bonnet — made of a sugar cookie sandwich — for the occasion.

    I really hope they will leave them on display through the 29th. I will be there next Friday and I would LOVE to see these. They should at least leave them up one more weekend so all the people coming for the Dark Side RunDisney Event next weekend can see them. Fingers crossed!

    I never go when its peak crowds, but I’d love to see all of those fancy eggs and adorable treats!
