Spoiler Alert: This post has two photos of locations for the Eggstravaganza hunt at Disneyland.
As we stood on the far side of it's a small world, the corner reserved for service dogs taking a break and a wide expanse of running room, Wonder Boy and I spied a familiar rabbit-faced egg peeking from a sea dragon topiary.
Turns out the Egg-stravaganza had just started yesterday, and we decided to play along as part of our first time attempting the parks as a three-some. (Let's say on that note I learned everything NOT to do the hard way.)
Instead of standing in lines for any ride we as a three could possibly pull off, yesterday Wonder Boy, Lil' Wonder and I instead grabbed a $5 map for each boy and spent the day winding around Disneyland looking for Easter Eggs.
But with a full park for spring break, it was a lot of work for myself and my four year old. Castmembers aren't supposed to give you hints, though they helped verify things like, yes, that shop is on Main Street.
Start early and try to keep a lookout for stuff in you area – but we did it with just going from place to place for eggs and a couple extra adventures in three hours.
At the end you don't get to pick which egg you want- part of the fun!
So, if you decide to do your own Easter egg search, here's some tips and tricks to get you going.
- Stuck? Look for other people holding their maps. They're probably standing right in front of it.
- Look up. There were several eggs hiding up high in trees or on signs.
- The locations are pretty literal.
…and some location-specific advice for the harder ones for us…
- The Fortuosity Shop is where they make the custom watches – and this egg likes to be able to see the action.
- The locker area on Main Street have some lovely flowers in boxes above it.
- One egg has a bird's eye view of a tea party.
- One egg is watching people in line to go on a trip around the world.
And one last photo for the HARDEST one for us- it took three laps around the area to finally find someone at just the right angle.
Let me know if you too go on an egg hunt!
