Easter at Walt Disney World

April 5, 2015

Easter

Every Easter, the Easter Bunny and his wife, Mrs. Bunny, visit the Walt Disney World Resort for some rest and relaxation in the days leading up to Easter's annual holiday basket delivery. The Bunnies, who have spent most of the year painting eggs and stocking up on jelly beans, will spend their Disney Parks vacation meeting and greeting families at the Magic Kingdom Park. You won't want to miss meeting them and other special activities that take place in the parks, restaurants and resorts of the Walt Disney World Resort.

Typically, Mr and Mrs Easter Bunny are joined by butterflies, flowers and dancing hippos for this procession down Main Street, U.S.A.. Of course, the Bunnies will be unavailable for meet & greets during their pre-parade appearances.

    • Spring Trolley Show - The citizens of Main Street, U.S.A. in Magic Kingdom park are bursting with excitement now that spring is in the air. Dressed to the nines in bright pastels and with a few new songs in their hearts, they arrive in town on a horse-drawn trolley adorned with colorful bouquets of flowers and ribbons.

    The MouseForLess Tip:
    When making your Easter vacation plans, plan on arriving at the Magic Kingdom early, especially days the week prior to Easter as the park often closes due to reaching capacity.
