Since 2013 the U.S. Disney Parks have hosted Egg-stravaganza egg hunts every Easter season. These beloved scavenger hunts have now come to your local Disney Store!

From April 5th to April 20th (or while supplies last) participating Disney Stores will host the Magical Egg Hunt Adventure. For just $5 + tax you can purchase a map with character stickers. (Unfortunately, the Disney Visa and other discounts do not apply to this purchase.)
Announcement from Disney for the Magical Egg Hunt Adventure
The map and stickers come in a package much like they do at the parks. The map is fairly thick with shiny embossed accents
After we received our map the TV screen behind the counter begin showing information about the egg hunt and the speakers announced that an egg hunt had started. Cute hunting music played while we searched the store for the location of 8 cardboard character eggs. These cute eggs each included number on them. You then place the character sticker on the corresponding number on your map.
Of course Woody was hidden with all the Toy Story merchandise
My son was able to complete the map all by himself
Once completed, take your map to a Cast Member. They will mark your map as completed and reward you with one collectible egg. Open the egg for a surprise sticker to place on your map.

This was a fun little event that my five year old son loved! I enjoyed that the hunt wasn’t too easy or hard, and he was able to do it on his own. He also mentioned to the Cast Member that he wanted to come back and do the hunt again. The Cast Member replied that he planned on changing up the search often and to come back any time.
