It’s that time of year again! If you go visit Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival, and you plan on spending most of your time in the World Showcase, then head to one of the souvenir stores with an Eggstravaganza sign outside of it- which are also listed in your Flower and Garden Festival Guide booklet- to start your Egg Hunt. I purchased mine at the gift shop by the International Gateway entrance as I entered the park.Each map costs $5.99 + tax.
Once you buy your map, head on over to the World Showcase and start searching for the eggs. There is an egg in each of the eleven World Showcase pavilions as well as an additional egg hidden in the African themed trading outpost between Germany and China. When you find an egg, place the sticker that matches it on that pavilions little egg outline on your map. I have to be honest- this wasn’t as easy as I thought it was going to be. It was mainly the size of the eggs that surprised me. Maybe it’s because my eyesight isn’t the best. The eggs are about the size of a laptop and are often hidden high up in rafters or on buildings. And yes, you do have to venture in to the actual pavilions to find a lot of them.
Here are some photos of a few of the eggs I found during my hunt. Can you guess what countries they are in? Let me know in the comments!
Once you complete your map, you take it to the redemption location, denoted by a Mickey head on your Egg Hunt map. There, a cast member will stamp your map to show that you have already redeemed it, and will allow you to pick one of the twelve character eggs as a prize. I wasn’t able to grab a detailed photo, but your character choices are 2 versions of Minnie and Mickey, Woody, Jesse, the Cheshire Cat, Lady, Tramp, Nemo, Dory, and Stitch. It is important to note that you only get one egg per map, so if you have multiple kids or if you would like more than one egg, you should purchase multiple maps. This event should be going on until the end of May!
