Easter at Disneyland

Easter falls on April 1, 2018 this year, which is a peak day for The Disneyland Resort. To keep everything in spring-time-bliss, check out these important planning tips for your Easter visit:

Don’t forget the egg hunt going on throughout the parks and Downtown Disney!

Beginning March 16 through Easter Sunday on April 1, 2018 you can pick up a map and sticker set for about $6 to search for hidden eggs throughout the Disneyland Resort.

Purchase maps and stickers here:

  • Disney Showcase (the big shop to your left on Main Street, U.S.A. when you first walk in) to hunt for eggs in Disneyland Park
  • Elias & Co. to hunt for eggs in Disney California Adventure Park
  • World of Disney Store to hunt for eggs in the Downtown Disney District

When you find the hidden eggs throughout the resort, record it with a sticker on your map. At the end, whether you’re done finding all the eggs or just enough eggs for your little tired feet, return your map to the Egg-stravaganza redemption location (same place you bought your map).

And best of all, choose your prize to take home! You pick one egg to keep with a little surprise inside too. Disneyland Easter egg hunt
