Guests can check in at the Easter Basket podium in the United Kingdom up to 30 minutes before each hunt and relay. Space is limited.
Meet Mr. & Mrs. Easter Bunny
Mr. and Mrs. Easter Bunny will show off their Easter finery as they pose for photos and sign autographs. Continuous from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Egg-stravaganza Scavenger Hunt
The Egg-stravaganza is back for 2018 and is available at the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival through May 28. As a part of this scavenger hunt, guests can search for special hidden “eggs” themed to Disney characters and record their discoveries by placing the corresponding sticker on the specially themed map to represent that location. Maps and stickers can be purchased for $5.99, plus tax, at Pin Central in Future World, Disney Traders at the entrance to World Showcase, or World Traveler at International Gateway. When you find all of the “eggs” and complete your scavenger hunt map, you then return it to Disney Traders for a sp-egg-tacular surprise.
