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

The springtime tradition of Eggstravaganza returns again in 2023!
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 13 to April 9, 2023. There are three separate maps – Disneyland, Disney California Adventure, and Downtown Disney – and each map costs $9.99.
You can take your map (completed or not) to any redemption area to claim your prize, which is one of six character eggs.
This year, Guests can easily purchase their Eggstravaganza maps using mobile shopping! Look for a Cast Member to assist you in the following locations:
- Disneyland – Outside Plaza Point Holiday Shoppe near the Corn Dog Cart
- Disney California Adventure – Outside Elias & Company along Buena Vista Street
- Downtown Disney – Outside World of Disney or near Pin Traders
Here are a few eggs I’ve spotted in past years:

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!
Easter & Springtime Treats
What’s Easter without some candy? Disneyland has the sweetest spring treats available at Candy Palace inside Disneyland, Trolley Treats inside Disney California Adventure, and Marceline’s at Downtown Disney.
Wouldn’t these look cute in an Easter basket?

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).
Springtime really is a fabulous time to visit Disneyland Park and the Disneyland Resort. If you go, say hi to Mickey for me!
