Spring is here and Easter is just around the corner! Whether you’re headed to Walt Disney World during this time or staying home, there is plenty of Disney fun to be had this time of year. While there is plenty to do at Walt Disney World, we also love a bit of Disney Easter magic at home!
Celebrating Easter at Walt Disney World
Celebrating Easter at Walt Disney World can be a lot of fun! With their Egg-stravaganza hunt at EPCOT, Easter brunch and fun Easter-inspired treats, there’s plenty to see and do. You can learn all about Easter at Walt Disney World here. But why not recreate some of that magic at home?
Disney Easter at home
Creating some Disney magic for Easter is easy! You can sprinkle this magic throughout the Easter season, or make a whole day of it. We love that there are so many easy ways to incorporate Disney into any season! Add some fun spring colors and activities and it’s easy to bring some of that Disney Easter magic home.
Disney Inspired Easter Brunch
Who doesn’t love a good brunch, especially at Easter? We created these Carrot Cake Mickey Waffles for Easter, and we love how easy this Mickey Waffle Maker is to use! Add in some coffee or tea for the little ones, and some of your favorite brunch sides, and voila! An easy Easter brunch, with a pinch of magic.
Or maybe you want something a little more fresh? Bring some of the Flower and Garden Festival home with our copycat warm cheese strudel recipe! This recipe is light and flaky, with warm berries drizzled over top. It’s not technically Easter-themed, but it is very springy, and we think it’s a great addition to your Easter celebrations.
Decorate Disney Easter Eggs
Does your family color eggs? We do! Even as my daughter has gotten older, we always make time to decorate some eggs for Easter. So, while you’re at it, make them themed! You can try something as easy as adding a little Baymax face or polka dots; or test your skills with these fun Easter crafts from Disney Family. And if you’re looking for a super DIY, Target has Disney Easter Egg kits as well! There are so many ways to make your Easter egg decorating Disney-themed, just be creative and have fun with it!
Easter shows on Disney Plus
April showers bring May flowers, right? That seems to be the case where we live, and we end up finding ourselves relaxing a bit more on a rainy day. When it’s time to relax for a few minutes and take a break, head to Disney Plus. Disney Plus has plenty of fun shows for Easter. We’re sharing some of our favorites here! Whether you’re nostalgic for some classic Winnie the Pooh, or want something slightly newer like Rise of the Guardians, we love that we can see these all springtime long on Disney Plus.
Disney Easter Egg Hunt
Walt Disney World and Disneyland both hold Egg-stravaganza Easter egg hunts, so why not have one at your own house? Once you’ve decorated your Disney Easter eggs, plan an egg hunt! Or use plastic eggs decorated with Disney stickers. Set it up scavenger hunt style or keep it simple!
Disney Easter Basket
Do your little ones love all things Disney? Or maybe you do! Regardless of whose Easter basket you’re filling, making a Disney-themed Easter basket is easy! Luckily, places like Target and Walgreens tend to have Disney-themed candy for Easter, if you like sweets in your basket. Add in a Disney plushie, a coloring book or a Disney book and you’re all set! It doesn’t need to be complicated. Little ones will love Disney bedtime stories; while teens and adults might enjoy the Disney Twisted Tales series.
A few years ago we made a Tsum Tsum themed Easter basket and it was a hit! And even though Tsum Tsums are no longer around, you can easily recreate the idea using Disney Wishables or even Pop Funko figurines or plushies.
So there you have it- quick and easy ways to have a Disney Easter at home! Do you love adding a bit of magic to your holidays?
