Last month while I was at Disney World, for the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival, I got to FINALLY cross off something that’s been on my Disney bucket list for the longest time: participate in the easter egg hunt Egg-stravaganza at Epcot! Although I’ve visited Disney World (and Disneyland) plenty of times during the spring in the past, my trips never coincided with when the Easter Egg Hunt Egg-stravaganza was taking place (last year I literally missed it by two weeks!). The Easter Egg Hunt Egg-stravaganza (which takes place in Epcot at Disney World, Disneyland, California Adventure and Downtown Disney) is a fun, egg-themed scavenger hunt (for both kids and adults) where participants search for special hidden Disney themed “eggs” and record their discoveries by placing the corresponding Disney character’s sticker on the specially themed Egg-stravaganza map to represent that location.
While there are several locations in Epcot where you can purchase a Egg-stravaganza map (including Disney Traders and World Traveler), I decided to pick up my map from Pin Central since it’s located right near the front of the park!
Egg-stravaganza maps are $5.99, plus tax and include a map and a sheet of Disney character stickers. (How cute are those stickers?) For the egg hunt Egg-stravaganza I decided to work my way counter clockwise around the World Showcase, so I started the egg hunt in Canada and ended it in Mexico. Also just a quick note, Epcot’s Egg-stravaganza runs until May 29 (or while supplies last), so if you are planning a trip to Disney World during that timeframe and you want to do the Egg-stravaganza hunt egg, just know that this post comes with a huge SPOILER ALERT!
Can you spot the egg in Canada?
It took FOREVER to find the White Rabbit in the United Kingdom Pavilion. I had no idea that some of the eggs were going to be located in stores/shops! I just assumed all of the eggs would be visible from outside. I guess since it was super easy to spot Thumper in the Canada Pavilion, I thought the Egg-stravaganza egg hunt was going to be easy but boy was I wrong!
I found Minnie in Les Halles Boulangerie & Patisserie in the France pavilion!
By the time I arrived in Morocco I was a little exhausted. Since the last two eggs were located in stores (which meant I had to literally search the entire pavilions), I was really hoping that this egg would be outside/in plain sight!
Thankfully Perry was super easy to spot (just like Thumper was!).
How cute is that Figment egg? The egg was super easy to spot in the Japan pavilion!
Since the previous two eggs (Figment and Perry) were so easy to find, I had a sneaky feeling that the egg hidden in the America Pavilion wouldn’t be (meaning it would likely be located “inside” somewhere)!
As expected, I found the next egg (which happened to be Mickey) indoors in Heritage Manor Gift!
Can you spot which egg is hiding out in the Italy Pavilion?
Raise your hand if you said “Goofy!” Fun fact: Goofy is my favorite member of the Fab Five (Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald and Pluto).
I think the egg hidden in the Germany pavilion might have been one of the hardest ones to find! I looked all over Germany and for some reason I just couldn’t find it until I wondered into Der Teddybear.
How funny is it that one of the hardest eggs to find just so happens to be one of my favorite characters (Chip ‘n Dale are the BEST!).
I also found it pretty funny that I found the Chip egg at the Outpost immediately after I found the Dale egg in Germany!
Although the Pluto egg was located outdoors in the China Pavilion, it was still pretty well hidden!
After finding Daisy in the Norway Pavilion and Donald in the Mexico Pavilion, I had successfully filled out my Egg-stravaganza map and was ready to claim my prize!
There were several Disney eggs to choose from including: the Cheshire Cat, Lady, Tramp, Woody, Jessie, Stitch, Nemo, Dory and two different versions of Minnie and Mickey! If you checked out my Disney Haul from this trip then you might remember that I decided to get the Woody and Jessie Easter eggs (you didn’t have to get a “matching” set but I thought it was cute to get two eggs from the same movie!).
In total, it took me about two hours to complete the Egg-stravaganza egg hunt (but keep in mind that it was during the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival so I was spending extra time in each country looking at all the gorgeous topiaries and trying all the different foods!). I LOVED that they let you keep your completed map (they stamp the back once you pick out your egg so they know you’ve completed it). It’s like a bonus little souvenir!
