Is it just me or do the holidays always sneak up on us? We’re already less than a week away from Easter and I’m just beginning my shopping. (Please tell me I’m not the only one!) Lucky for me, Disney Springs is hoppin’ with fun and delicious finds to make the perfect Easter basket. Need some ideas? Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered—but first brunch.
There’s no denying that Disney Springs boasts an incredible line-up of dining destinations and brunch is no exception. Wine Bar George recently debuted Wine Country Brunch available Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m.- 3 p.m. featuring a menu of favorites like Burrata, Eggs Benedict, Fresh Toast and so much more. Buffet options include Maria & Enzo’s (with the guest of honor, the Easter Bunny) and STK Orlando. Specialty à la carte menus can be found at Enzo’s Hideaway and The Edison. (Reservations are recommended so hop to it and make yours here.)
Looking to build your own basket this year? Add a little Disney magic with the all-new Disney Parks Wishables collection. These adorable little plush just debuted at Once Upon a Toy and come in 4 different sets. (As a Disney foodie, the Frozen Food Set is my favorite.) The best part? They come in blind bag packaging so your little ones can guess which plush they’re getting.
If your kiddo loves larger huggable plush, swing by the Build-A-Dino by Build-A-Bear Workshop at T-REX and customize your own bunny, sloth or dino with colorful Easter-themed attire to match.
Over at Basin, fresh scents are a-plenty featuring new Easter egg bath bombs in three popular fragrances including Pink Sugar, Satsuma, and Water Lily. Fresh cut soaps are also available in spring floral designs.
Looking for a fully-assembled basket? Goofy’s Candy Co. is bringing back their popular Disney baskets compete with delicious goodies—plus don’t forget about your greeting card. Lovepop has some “egg-stra” exciting pop-up designs at a newly opened kiosk in front of Paddlefish.
Be sure to treat yourself while you’re shopping. This week only, Sprinkles is paying homage to your favorite Easter snack, Peeps! Find them in Lemon Strawberry flavors through April 21. (Keep an eye out on a future Easter foodie guide from Alex for more details on treats from Amorette’s Patisserie and The Ganachery.)
