Enjoy an Easter Getaway to Orlando!

When travelers find that they’re overdue for a well-deserved vacation, there’s always an amazing adventure waiting for them in Orlando, Florida. Here, the sunshine, magical theme park moments, and access to amazing views, nature, dining, and shopping too make it simple to customize a getaway any time of year. While Orlando is an inviting vacation destination for travelers year-round, there’s something particularly special about hitting the road or skies in pursuit of Florida when Easter rolls around. Those looking to celebrate in southern style this year will find that there are a variety of activities, holiday attractions, and events they can add to a family-friendly itinerary. When you’re ready to enjoy a one-of-a-kind Easter in Orlando, the following are just a few of the many ways you can enjoy your time to make the most of the fun!

Grab a Basket and Add an Easter Egg Hunt to the Lineup

Travelers that are looking to make the most of an Orlando adventure over Easter and are heading this way with little ones at their side won’t want to miss out on the Easter egg hunt fun that awaits. Once you have your basket in hand, you can make your way to Winter Park where the annual Easter Egg hunt at Winter Park Village will be in full swing in 2023. Once kids have collected their eggs at their own pace, this event provides guests with access to live musical entertainment and family-friendly games to enjoy. There are even options to browse local art galleries if you’re looking for a little creative holiday inspiration.

Meet the Easter Bunny in Authentic Holiday Style

For many Orlando-bound visitors over Easter with kids included in the journey, the holiday simply wouldn’t feel the same without some time set aside to grab a photo of the moment with the Easter Bunny. A great place to get in line for a special meet and greet is at The Mall At Millenia. It’s recommended that you make a reservation for the experience to ensure your spot in the lineup, but once you do, you’ll find there’s a lot to look forward to! Not only will your picture be a wonderful Easter keepsake, but proceeds from this particular event typically go to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Florida.

Another option for meeting the Easter Bunny in Orlando is to head over to ICON Park where they’ll be hosting their annual Easter Bunny Garden Experience. When you find time to enjoy this event, you’ll get a great photo as well as a complimentary ride on the iconic wheel if you purchase the photo package.

Let Disney Lead the Way to Easter Fun

Orlando is home to amazing Disney theme parks and no matter what’s being celebrated, Disney knows how to do it in a magical style. Easter is a fan-favorite time at the parks, especially since it aligns with the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. This means the park is packed with color and florals throughout that are fun to admire and make for amazing photo opportunities too. There’s plenty of holiday fare to try and customized merchandise to add to your souvenir list. Epcot also hosts an annual Eggstravaganza where visitors can pick up a scavenger hunt map at World Showcase and go through the park in search of colorful Disney character-themed “eggs.” Once they’ve all been collected, turning the map in results in a fun holiday prize!

The Walt Disney Swan and Dolphin Hotel also celebrate Easter with the arrival of PEEPtastic Week. This celebration puts a spin on Easter with a focus on those sweet PEEP marshmallow candies that adorn so many Easter baskets each year. These festivities often include PEEP-themed activities, food, and souvenirs too. There’s also an Easter dinner buffet built into the itinerary for the week complete with Disney characters on-site to entertain guests while they dine.

Make it a Faithful Celebration

Those looking to incorporate an Easter service into their holiday getaway to Orlando will have plenty of options to consider. Fantasia Ballroom of the Disney Contemporary hosts a Catholic Easter Mass on Easter Sunday at 8:00 am and 10:30 pm. At 9:15 am, the location hosts a Protestant service as well. Travelers that are interested in a sunrise service can attend a gathering at SeaWorld Orlando which doesn’t cost a thing to attend, but a goodwill donation is encouraged in the spirit of the season.
