Easter Arrives to Walt Disney World
Easter "season" has arrived to Walt Disney World, with the beautiful Grand Floridian Easter Egg Display and an Easter Egg Hunt in Epcot. I will be writing about that today, here are some images from it! The Easter Bunny begins this week.
Universal's Cabana Bay Resort is now open! The lazy river and standard rooms will open in a couple of months, but we enjoyed the night we booked to stay at the new resort. So far, I wrote up an article with my intial thoughts on opening day, and another article showing how Universal's Cabana Bay Resort is not like Disney's Art of Animation Resort. I will have a larger photo article next week. We also have videos embedded in the articles! We enjoyed meeting the Minions and Gru, they were an opening day treat!
We attended the first Epcot Illuminations Sparkling Dessert Party last month, featuring desserts inspired by several of the countries. We have a full review, along with a video showing the experience.
Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade debuted in March - it is an INCREDIBLE parade, we have seen it twice so far and I look forward to seeing it again. It's been a long time since the Magic Kingdom has had a parade like this - we have 100 photos with video here! Belle and Beast head up the parade on the Princess float (below, left), which also features Elsa and Anna (below, right). Not everyone will see the Frozen sisters (Anna is in her coronation gown), as the float elements spin - one day I photographed Anna and Elsa, the next day Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen.
The most talked about aspect of Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade is the 26-foot high Maleficent dragon (below, left), which breathes fire! And the Mad Hatter adds a little levity to the procession (below, right).
Donald and Daisy join a variety of Disney characters near the end of the parade (below, left). The last float is this airship with Mickey Mouse waving (below, right)! Some of these photos were taken from the Fastpass+ section, which offers a view of Cinderella Castle.

Mad for Macarons? Indulge Your Sweet Tooth At Epcot's France Pavilion
Next week we will shine a broader light on Epcot's France pavilion, but today I wanted to talk macarons! Our first macarons ever were from Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie last year, a box of 5 that expanded recently to include 6 for the same price. This past week, we tried 4 different ways to enjoy macarons at Epcot's France pavilion!
