Springtime is a magical season at the Disneyland Resort! The flowers and trees are in bloom, the weather is delightful, and crowds are manageable before the summer rush.

If you’re planning a Springtime visit to Disneyland in California, this article will tell you about any special offerings happening around the Resort!

Easter and Springtime at Disneyland

Eggstravaganza

The springtime tradition of Eggstravaganza returns again in 2022!

If you’re not familiar with the Disneyland Eggstravaganza, it’s a fun activity where you buy a map and go around the Parks and Downtown Disney looking for large egg decorations “hidden” in various spots. The map tells you the area where you can find the eggs, but it’s up to you to actually spot it.

Each egg is painted to look like a character and once you spot it you place the character sticker on its location on the map. Once you complete your map you can redeem it for a prize – a small character egg.

This year, you can participate in Eggstravaganza from March 31 to April 17, 2022. There are three separate maps – Disneyland, Disney California Adventure, and Downtown Disney – and each map costs $9.99.

Stop and Smell the Flowers

Well maybe not actually smell them, but admire them! The grounds of Disneyland really come alive in spring, with beautiful bright flowers and blooming pink trees. The horticulture is an attraction in its own right!

Spring Break – How Are the Crowds?

Spring is a generally mild time to visit the Disneyland Resort, but the Spring Break periods do get busy! If you plan to visit the Disneyland Resort around Easter, be sure to plan ahead and make your Park reservations as early as possible (right now that’s 120 days ahead for ticket holders and 90 days ahead for Magic Key holders).
