This week’s Limited Time Magic is all about Spring. The Spring Fling will allow guests to meet Mr. and Mrs. Easter Bunny at either the Magic Kingdom in Town Square on Main Street or in the UK Pavilion at Epcot. Also at the Magic Kingdom, a special processional will take place before the Celebrate A Dream Come True Parade featuring butterflies, flowers, dancing hippos, and others. Over at Epcot, for those who want to participate in an Easter Egg hunt, they may do so at the UK Pavilion (along with fun relay races) and in Future World.
