Hop into Disney during Spring!

GRANDFLORIDIANHOTEL

It’s nothing like Spring Time in Central Florida. Our weather is getting warmer and beautiful flowers are starting to bloom. There is so much to do around Disney without the need of going into their one of the four Theme Parks.

Being a Disney Passholder, we receive several perks that are included in our yearly pass. So why not take advantage of those discounts is what I say.

Every so often my family and I go hotel hopping. It’s just something magical about each and everyone. There has been many occasions that we actually have had breakfast or lunch at one of their hotel restaurants prior to going into one of their theme parks. It’s just something special that we like to do from time to time. Whether it’s making reservations to a character breakfast, lunch, dinner or visiting an onsite cafe, there is still plenty of time to still enjoy every moment while visiting.  When we visit during a holiday season, each hotel becomes a transformation of something beautiful. One of my favorite times to visit a Walt Disney World hotel property is during Christmas and the Spring.  From the change of flowers planted to the over the top decorations, making memories or creating a photo opp with your family is something your love ones will cherish.

Since Easter will be here soon enough, we decided to take a glimpse of these remarkable Easter Eggs showcased in the lobby of the Grand Floridian Hotel.

For the past 4 years, the Grand Floridian Hotel located near the Magic Kingdom Park has displayed and hosted these wonderful Easter Eggs.

With the help of their bakery team which is led by their executive Pasty and Chef Erich Herbitschek, these one of kind picture perfect eggs are just a sample how unique and talented these Easter Eggs makers truly really are.

They were given the freedom to design their Easter Eggs as they spent over three weeks creating these edible works of art. Each egg is ornamented with edible products such as modeling chocolate, fondant, sugar floral royal icing, colored cocoa butter and sculpted sugar art pieces.

Each hollow chocolate egg weights between 9 to 12 pounds and stands 16 to 20 inches tall. Aren’t they just beautiful?

You can visiting these beautiful Easter Eggs for a limited time until April 10th.

While your visiting this gorgeous Disney Hotel, check out the marina. It’s where you can rent pontoon boats, sea racers and much more. No deposits or reservations are needed just as long they have boats available. You can rent them by increments of 30 mins to an hour and the prices start at $45 and up. Nothing like cruising in front of the Magic Kingdom Park on a warm spring day.

Hi, I'm Michele. So glad to see that you stopped by Sunshine and Flip Flops. My blog is devoted to easy recipe creations for busy families like my own, traveling with family, and tips on everyday life solutions. Did I also forget to say? I'm from Central Florida, so bring on the warm weather, flip flops, beaches, and chilled beverages!

    I have been to Disney a whole bunch of times, but never in the spring. I want to go see the flower show one of these years, though. It looks awesome.
  • Alli

    We usually take the grandkids to Disney every spring, but this year we're going to St. Maarten instead. I hate I'm going to miss those beautiful eggs! It's amazing the detail and work that must have been spent on each one. Beautiful!

    There are only a few things I wish I had really taken advantage of all the years I lived in Orlando, and this is one of them. I had a bunch of friends stay at the Grand Floridian and ride on a Platoon boat. I always thought it was such a cool thing to do but never made my way over there. Next time I visit this will definitely be on the list of to-dos!
  • Lisa @bitesforbabies

    Spring would be the perfect time to visit Disney...not too hot and not too cold! You posted some great pics!
  • Joseph

    This looks like a wonderful place to take the entire family for vacation. Everything looks vibrant and clean! I would love to visit.

    Oh you are so lucky to get to go to Disney. I've been telling my boys for years that someday we will make it there if we can budget it in...it just hasn't happened yet. Thank you for sharing your beautiful pictures of your trip, at least through you we get to take a virtual field trip there :D

    I've been to Disney during the Spring and loved it. In fact, I love going every season, though summer's a wee bit hot. ;)
  • Chubskulit Rose

    I think the best time to go to Disney is during Spring. We went during summer time a couple of years ago and it was too hot! Love those Disney themed eggs!
  • Grace Hodgin

    I love the landscape design and architecture at Disney. They do inspire creativity and the imagination in their shops and parks.
  • Bonnie @ wemake7

    Our family has never been to Disney but hopefully we can visit at least once in our life time. Looks so fun.
  • Pauline C.

    Who would’ve thought that Disney is more fantastic during the Spring season? I’ve been there a couple of times and always had an amazing time!
  • R U S S

    Those are the prettiest Easter Eggs I've ever seen - them being edible is just a bonus, lol. I should head back to Disney in the nearer future, it's been ages since I was last there and there's probably a lot of beautiful changes.
  • Lynndee

    We've never been to Disney but it's definitely on our bucket list. Love those eggs! They're definitely gorgeous and creatively made.
  • Kori Tomelden

    I would love to see those in person! I haven't been to Disney World since I was little but hoping to take my family there one day.
  • Mhie Lee

    I never been in Disney during easter. That disney frozen egg would be my daughter's favourite and I know she'll be begging me to buy one if she would ever see it.
  • CourtneyLynne

    Ahhhhh I don't know why I never thought about doing this in the spring!! We use to hop to resort to resort during Christmas and it was so awesome seeing the decorations. Especially the ginger bread house at Grand Floridian. All the eggs look fabulous!! i wanna see them for myself now lol....
  • Roselynn

    The Easter eggs look so pretty, almost too pretty to eat lol. I wish I could go to Disney in the spring time and experience them myself.
  • Jeanine

    I have never been to Disney before. Hope to one day. Looks like it would be beautiful in spring! Can't wait to experience it one day!
  • Cara (@StylishGeek)

    I love that Disney really makes it an effort to beautify each theme park they have. With Easter coming up those gorgeous Eggs are really lovely to see! I have yet to visit Disneyworld! :)
  • Yona Williams

    The egg designs are amazing; I especially like the peacock one. It's very eye catching. OMGoodness, I just read that they are made out of CHOCOLATE. Yum! I also love hitting the waters when I am on vacation.
  • Sara-Jayne

    The last time we were in Disney was for the food and wine festival and it was amazing. I would love to go at Easter!
  • christina aliperti

    I haven't been to Disney in years and never in the Spring. It looks beautiful and I think next time we go will be next Spring!
  • Cassie

    These Easter egg designs are stunning. No other words could describe them. I especially love the Beauty and the Beast one with only the rose visible.
  • Michelle @ Dishes and Dust Bunnies

    Sounds like an amazing resort! I'd love to visit there someday with my little boy. I love how detailed those easter eggs are - sooo pretty!!
  • Krysta

    Living in Costa Rica, we don't get to see the seasons change anymore. However I know what you mean about the flowers blooming and spring being in the air because it was always so obvious growing up in NJ. Glad to see Spring is upon you all!
  • Danielle @ We Have It All

    We plan on moving to FL in a few years and I want nothing more than to hold season passes. My family likes to hotel hop too. I guess it helps that I love doing reviews on hotels haha. Anyway, those eggs are beautiful!
