The Easter holiday is just around the corner and this year, travelers will find that a trip to Orlando, Florida will be filled with more options than ever to celebrate with the entire family! While Orlando is always a place where visitors can access a little bit of magic, Easter here is a time of year when there’s fun and thrills to be found around every corner. The following are just a few of the many activities you can add to your itinerary when you’re excited to spend an Easter in Orlando, FL far from the hustle of daily life at home.
Check Out the Epcot Eggstravaganza
Each year, Epcot puts on a beloved Eggstravaganza in honor of Easter, and 2023 is no exception to the rule! Flowers and gardens are everywhere this time of year across Epcot and visitors heading over to World Showcase will find they can participate in the “egg” as part of the annual International Flower & Garden Festival. Pick up a themed map and find your way across the park which hosts Disney character-themed “eggs” to pick up. If you’re fortunate enough to find all of the eggs on the map, you can return them for a well-deserved surprise at the end. This is a great family-friendly activity that guests can enjoy in addition to the theme park fun that’s always found waiting at Epcot.
Enjoy PEEPtastic Week at Walt Disney Swan and Dolphin Hotel
The Disney Easter fun continues at Swan and Dolphin Hotel in 2023 with the arrival of PEEPtastic week! Festivities this time of year here include an Easter dinner buffet complete with Disney characters at Garden Grove. PEEP marshmallow candy-themed activities are often hosted as part of this family-fun week and there are often PEEP-themed foods available to be savored on-site too. It’s a sweet experience no matter which way you spin it!
Easter Bunny Meet and Greets
For many Easter time travelers heading to Orlando with little ones in tow, a highlight event is making time for a meet and greet with the Easter Bunny himself. Fortunately, Orlando offers up a variety of places where that experience is possible. There’s a fun Easter Bunny Garden Experience hosted at ICON Park each year where a photo comes with a complimentary ride on the iconic wheel. If you’re going to be in the Mall at Millenia area around Easter, the Easter Bunny will be on-site to take photos and proceeds go towards the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Florida.
Enjoy an Easter Egg Hunt
Another great way to spend Easter in Orlando with little ones is to make sure you’ve added an Easter Egg hunt to your to-do list. In nearby Winter Park, visitors can enjoy taking part in the annual Easter Egg hunt at Winter Park Village. Beyond the egg hunt, this event typically includes Easter games, options to browse the art, and live musical performances as well. Be sure to bring your basket and a sense of adventure for this family-friendly experience.
Make the Most of Margaritaville Resort Fun
Every year, Margaritaville Resort in Orlando hosts a Fins Up Bunny Hop 5K on-site that can be run or walked by participants according to preference. The resort also hosts an on-site Easter egg hunt and photos with the Easter Bunny as well. Those looking to curb a holiday craving will want to take advantage of the resort’s Easter Brunch experience as well. This savory option includes a kid’s favorite station and a variety of breakfast and lunch selections ranging from salad to carving stations. There’s also a large dessert display to pick and choose from as well. Brunch is typically $60 for adults and $20 for kids under 12. This year, it will be held on Sunday, April 9th between 11:30 am and 3:00 pm.
Celebrate the Season
An Easter getaway to Orlando in 2023 can also include options to attend holiday services. Make your way to the Fantasia Ballroom of Disney’s Contemporary for a Catholic Mass at 8:00 am and 10:30 am on Easter Sunday. There’s a Protestant service held at the same location at 9:15 am.
