What do you get when you combine the creativity of Disney and the Easter holiday? Gorgeous, decorated chocolate eggs on display at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort!
This is the First Annual Easter Egg Display, featuring eggs which range from very traditional designs to ornate Disney creations. I'm not sure which one is my favorite! This isn't the first year that the eggs have been created, but they've always been displayed within the resort's restaurants. I think it's a wonderful idea to make them accessible to everyone who enters the resort!
According to the sign, Executive Pastry Chef Erich Herbitshek let the 19 Cast Members have complete freedom with their hollow chocolate eggs for 3 weeks. Each egg weighs 9 – 12 pounds and stands 16-20 inches tall!
We have a video of the egg display with our commentary!
It was a hot but gorgeous day:
The eggs are displayed right inside the lobby:
Looking down from the 2nd floor:
There are numerous molded Easter rabbits:
The sign telling guests about the display:
We are looking at the display from both front and back. There is a rope that keeps guests away from the display, although I saw the rope poles dropped twice by kids wanting to get closer. I am glad the display had survived thus far!
I really like this egg chick with the Mickey ears!
The Easter Bunny inside the egg:
Rapunzel and Maximus from Tangled grace the front of this egg (I forgot the horse's name during the video, but remembered right afterward!) The back of the egg is equally as detailed and lovely as the front, and we'll see that in this article.
These are more traditional eggs:
Finding Nemo egg:
I'm not sure where this artwork is from, but it's beautiful:
9 eggs lined up:
Snow White in three photos to show all the detail (and wait until you see the back!)
Even the base of the Snow White egg is highly detailed:
