Disney’s Grand Floridian & Decorated Easter Eggs
While I will most likely stay at the Grand Floridian because it is so expensive (waaaah!!!), I love to go hang around the resort. Luckily, it was just before Easter, so they had some fun decorated, EDIBLE chocolate eggs on display. They were so amazing!
Grand Floridian Resort
I took the monorail to the Grand Floridian Resort after dinner at the Polynesian Village one evening to look at the Easter Eggs and wander around a bit before heading to the Magic Kingdom.
Exiting the monorail, you enter in on the second floor and you have an awesome view of the lobby. There is a huge chandelier hanging down. The lobby was hopping with people looking at the eggs and just relaxing.
Heading down to the lobby, I was excited to see all of the eggs. Each spring, the Grand Floridian Bakery Team is given the opportunity to create some amazing Easter Eggs for guests to enjoy. All the Eggs are made of CHOCOLATE and other ingredients, such as fondant, icing, and cocoa butter. Can you imagine eating one of these?
Some of my favorites were the Little Mermaid:
And Cinderella’s Carriage:
After looking at all the eggs, I went for a walk outside (it was a beautiful day). I walked past the pool:
And found the New Balance Running Trail, which winds through the Grand Floridian and Polynesian Village grounds:
I also spied on the chapel, and saw a bride taking pictures! Congrats! On my way back inside, the Grand Floridian Lobby Society Orchestra was just starting to play! I stopped for a while to listen to them.
Here they are playing a bit of Colors of the Wind from Pocahontas:
The dining at Cinderella includes a few different restaurants, but I have previously only eaten at 1900 Park Fare, where I had dinner with Cinderella, Prince Charming, Lady Tremaine, Drizella, and Anastasia. The character interaction at this meal is great! I think it would be awesome to stay a night (or two, or three) at the Grand Floridian one day. I can dream, right?
Have you stayed at the Grand Floridian, or do you just visit?

Wow – those are so ornate! I could spend hours poring over all the details!
Those eggs are so cool. I love the Grand Floridian. Fun to just grab a comfy chair and listen to the jazz group or the pianist. All the dining there is fantastic. I’ve actually had them all. 1900 Park Fair is a good character experience, Citricos is a hidden gem, and can’t overlook the five diamond Victoria & Alberts.
Recently, I was invited to take a behind-the-scenes look at the hard work and artistry that goes into creating the beautiful chocolate Easter eggs displayed at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort Spa. I am so egg-cited to be able to give Disney Parks Blog readers a peek at the magic behind the scenes at the Grand Floridian Bakery. To read more, click here .
