For the second year in a row, Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort has offered a gorgeous Easter egg display in the lobby. It doesn’t take reading the sign to realize these eggs are chocolate – the smell fills the lobby!
The Easter Egg display was put up this morning. We have a video of all the eggs here!
There are at least two eggs that are holdovers from last year, the Rapunzel with Flynn Rider painted egg and the Snow White painted egg. Pretty much everything else is new! Cast Members spent three weeks creating the eggs, and the eggs weight 9 – 12 pounds and stand 16 – 20 inches tall.
The Brave egg is a favorite, this is the back of it with the three bears (we’ll see Merida later in the article!) I love that the eggs are decorated all around.
The Lion King:
This is possibly my favorite of the egg displays, Storybook Circus! The display includes the Casey Jr. and train cars, and even the years are added to them like at the Magic Kingdom. Giraffes and the monkey with sprayer are part of it. The detail on this is amazing.
This was one of the most talked about, a lamb made of chocolate:

Here is the other side of the Brave egg, with Princess Merida:
This Snow White egg has an apple in the base:
We spoke with a chef who created this Fantasia egg – which also includes film strips from Fantasia 2. She said her kids loved the music from Fantasia, and it inspired her to create it.
The Wall-E display has a B&L base, and Wall-E and Eve inside:
Aladdin and Princess Jasmine:
A teapot themed to Alice in Wonderland – very beautiful!
Cinderella’s dress is also exquisite!
More eggs include the Red Queen:

Gorgeous, aren’t they? There is so much detail, we spent an hour there today. If you have a chance to stop by Disney’s Grand Floridian by March 31st, check them out!
This is what I consider Limited Time Magic. In less than two weeks, these masterpieces will be gone, and we might see a few of them next year in a new display – but most likely won’t return. From what we’ve been told, there have been decorated eggs for years, but they used to be scattered around the restaurants. It’s so nice to have the opportunity to see all of them in the lobby!
