The Disney Egg-stravaganza takes guests on an egg hunting adventure through Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure park. The egg hunt is a great way to add a new experience to your itinerary and is also a great way to get more familiar with the landmarks and locations in both parks. Depending on crowds and your familiarity with the park we suggest that you plan for an hour or two per hunt, per park. The cost of the hunt is $4.95 per map and egg stickers and includes a prize at the end of the hunt. Having never done the Egg-stravaganza before I was a bit worried that it wouldn’t hold my eight year old’s attention, but he absolutely loved it. I got such a kick out of watching him rush to the next location, hunt high and low for the egg we were seeking, and he even helped his little sister along the way. This is an eggs-cellent activity and a definite springtime must-do! (The egg hunt ends April 5.)
Springtime Roundup at Big Thunder Ranch
In my humble opinion Big Thunder Ranch is Disneyland’s hidden gem. Located in Frontierland Big Thunder Ranch is home to the cutest goats around, awesome artists (during Halloweentime and Springtime), live music, arts and crafts, and awesome character meet-and-greet opportunities. This year’s Springtime Roundup features meet-and-greets with your favorite Disney bunnies including: Thumper, Roger Rabbit, Rabbit (Winnie the Pooh), White Rabbit, and the Easter Bunny. Also, Mickey, Minnie, and Pluto are on hand and dressed in their Easter best. The amazing egg-decorators have truly outdone themselves with some of the most beautiful and intricately decorated Disney-themed eggs. Springtime Roundup is available daily through April 12th and thereafter weekends through June 7th.
Each season the culinary team at the Disneyland Resort works to bring special menu offerings to the parks. The special menu items are generally available for a limited time and are an excellent way to try something new and to get in the spirit of the season.
While egg hunting in Disney’s California Adventure park we decided to indulge a little and had the best ever chocolate egg-shaped Mickey Mouse cake pops. Not only are they adorable and tasty, but they make for great photographs too.
Springtime Flora and Fauna
The Disneyland Resort truly comes to life during the Spring. All around the park beautiful blooms line the streets and decorate the planters. The Pink Lapacho trees located at the Partners Statue are stunning and make for some amazing photos. This year Big Thunder Ranch has welcomed two new kids- Bernard and Bianca, both Pygmy Goats. They are beyond adorable and sweet. In addition to the new goat additions there are also many adorable ducklings waddling and swimming through the parks.
