Tips for Easter at Walt Disney World

Plan

Planning your Day at Disney is always a good idea before you go. Nothing beats a good plan. from deciding where to eat, to which rides you want to try. Knowing this ahead of time can help you prioritize the important stuff, so you don’t find yourself waiting in lines all day. Grab our Walt Disney World Checklists and Printable to get a handle on what each day of your Disney Vacation looks like. 

Have a Ride Strategy

If you’re visiting Walt Disney World during the busiest time of year and hoping to ride a few favorite rides, have a Disney Ride Strategy! Head to popular rides during the 12-2 pm lunch hour when most people are eating or hoping to their next park. If you have a must-do ride and can’t sacrifice a long wait in line, purchase the Disney Genie+ service for the day or Individual LightLane Pass for that ride. 

Take Advantage of Early Theme Park Entry

If you’re staying at a Disney Resort you get access to the parks 30 minutes before everyone else with Early Theme Park Entry. To take true advantage of this we recommend being at the gates 30 or 45 minutes before early theme park entry begins, that way you can be at the FRONT of the line. This can help you race to your favorite ride and get the best place in line. 

Book Easter Brunch at Walt Disney World

If you’re visiting on Easter Day, the parks are BUSY, which means the best dining reservations would have already been booked 60 days prior by other guests. And because it’s one of the busiest times of the year, lines at quick-service restaurants will be extra long. Why not book Brunch at Walt Disney World to help you get out of the crowds and relax? Many of our favorite Disney Restaurants for Brunch are located at Resorts. Disney does offer a special brunch for Easter at a few select locations, as shared above in this post.

    • Hi there! Typically Disney Easter events happen Easter weekend only. And it’s generally only at certain resorts. Some resort restaurants will serve special meals, or have a craft available, but it’s definitely not at all the resorts. You may want to call the resort at which you’re considering staying to see if they have an established lineup of activities. Hope that helps.
