Disney’s Grand Floridian has its annual chocolate Easter Egg Display up! As always, the eggs are mostly 16-20 inches high and weigh 9-12 pounds. What is new this year is that Pastry Chef Kristine Farmer is at the helm after Master Pastry Chef Erich Herbitschek retired last year. She put her own stamp on Disney’s Grand Floridian Gingerbread House this year and there are and will be some changes to the egg display this year. First, it is up for a full 4 weeks as opposed to between 2 and 3 weeks. Second, the new eggs are completely up front and the returning eggs are elsewhere in the lobby. And Disney’s Grand Floridian will be selling Easter treats unlike in the past (at the concierge desk nearby). That was supposed to start on the first day of the display but they were unable to. As soon as we find out that the treats are being sold, we will add that to the article.
There is a wide variety of new eggs this year, which include 101 Dalmatians, Dumbo, Mary Poppins Returns and the Epcot ride Grand Fiesta Tour represented. We have been sharing the displays since the first year in 2012! In the 15 years prior to that, the eggs were made for restaurant display only.
Here is our video of all the eggs and then photos.
Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort is one of my favorites at Walt Disney World, and it is always nice to stop by for a new display!
