Celebrating The Holidays at Disney ~~ EASTER


Welcome to those of you joining me from Joanna and her Amazing Technicolor Interwebs. And to those of you just hopping aboard, I am the 4th Stop on our Magical Blogorail Peach.




Easter Morning

The topic for this month's Peach Blogorail is one of my favorites; I have celebrated most of the big holidays at Walt Disney World. I have been lucky enough to have been there for Thanksgiving, Christmas, St. Patrick's Day & Halloween. But, the one I'm talking about today is the one I have been there for the most often, Easter. Easter is such a special time at Walt Disney World, because it is decorated for Spring with millions of flowers, topiaries and plants everywhere. Another great bonus to going around Easter time is The Flower and Garden Show is in full swing, making it a great time to visit.

Decorating The Eggs
Our tradition began when the kids knew we were going to be there for the week of the Easter holiday and of course their big question was does the Easter Bunny know we are here at Disney?


And we were like "of course, he does." So the parents put into motion a plan, my cousin always meets us with her son too. Since, we knew we had to make sure we had all the necessities to duplicate the experience just like at home, a room with a kitchen was in order. Luckily being a DVC member this was no problem. Coming from home we had brought with us some candy, jelly beans, Easter grass, and baskets. My cousin, since she lives in Florida, brought the eggs and dye and some candy and presents too. Our idea was to combine the magic of Easter and the magic of Disney by also including some candy, cookies and treats from Main Street Confectionery in the Magic Kingdom. We always make their Easter Baskets special by adding toys and candy to them. 
Lots of Candy, See the Smile

So the day before Easter we dyed the eggs and the kids loved doing this at Disney it was so much fun. The kids also left out the carrots and milk for him. Then we parents sprung into action, putting the baskets together and hiding the eggs all around the room. It was so magical to see their faces when they got up and saw how the table was decorated with the pink grass, baskets and the candy was everywhere. They had the best time looking all around the room for the eggs and opening their candy.

Then later that day at the Magic Kingdom right by City Hall we all got to meet and take pictures with Mr. & Mrs. Easter Bunny and that my friends made our whole day.
