This Sunday is Easter, so it’s time for another holiday post. Like usual, I don’t want to list activities that are only available around that holiday; rather, I want to help you find Eastery things to do in Walt Disney World year-round. Now, if you do happen to be in Disney World during Easter, rest assured that you can visit the Easter bunny, enjoy an Easter brunch, and go to church if you’d like (check the DIS for details). Outside of the Easter season, though, there really aren’t explicit references to Easter in the parks. It’s not one of the holidays featured in Carousel of Progress, and I can’t think of any Easter decorations that can be spotted in any of the movie-based attractions. (If you think of something, let me know!) If you get creative, though, you can find things that remind you of Easter any time of year.
Here are three things to do in Walt Disney World if you love Easter.
1. Easter Bunnies
For many people, it wouldn’t be Easter without the Easter bunny! Although Mr. and Mrs. Bunny are only in Walt Disney World during Easter, you can find other rabbits there throughout the year. One is, of course, Rabbit from The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. Another is Bean Bunny in Muppet*Vision 3-D. And don’t forget Br’er Rabbit on Splash Mountain! You should also be able to find real bunnies in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The animal list on AllEars.Net says there are rabbits in Camp Minnie-Mickey and Rafiki’s Planet Watch.
2. Easter Candy
For some, it’s not about the bunny but what the bunny brings: candy! If you love candy, you have lot of confectioneries to visit, including:
- Main Street Confectionery (Magic Kingdom)
- Karamell Küche (Epcot)
- Beverly Sunset Sweet Spells (Disney’s Hollywood Studios)
- Seashore Sweets (Disney’s BoardWalk)
- Goofy’s Candy Company (Downtown Disney)
- Disney’s Candy Cauldron (Downtown Disney)
If chocolate is your thing, I definitely recommend the Ghirardelli Soda Fountain & Chocolate Shop in Downtown Disney. Often you get a free sample at the door!
3. Easter Blossoms
If what you’re enjoying during an Easter egg hunt is not the bunnies or the candy but the sights and smells of spring, you must love flowers! There are beautiful flowers just about everywhere in Walt Disney World, but a couple of places you’ll want to be sure to visit are the Plaza Rose Garden in Magic Kingdom and Victoria Gardens in the Canada Pavilion in Epcot. And there’s always the giant tulips holding the Dutch children in it’s a small world!

This list is a little different than usual because each item could be a list by itself! So, today is a more choose-your-own-adventure day. Find some bunnies, eat some chocolate, and smell some flowers. Sounds like a perfect spring day to me!
