‘Limited Time Magic’ Disney Character ‘Egg’ Hunt Begins Next Week at Disney Parks

posted on March 15th, 2013 by Thomas Smith, Editorial Content Director, Disney Parks

If you have an eagle eye, next week’s “Limited Time Magic” surprise at Disney Parks is especially for you. We’re launching a special “egg” hunt at both the Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts.

For one week only, from March 18-24, you’ll be able to search for special hidden “eggs” themed to Disney characters at Epcot and at Disney California Adventure park and then record your discoveries on specially themed Eggs-perience park maps.

At Epcot, maps can be purchased at the Heritage Manor in the American Adventure Pavilion, International Gateway, Pin Central and Port of Entry.

And at Disney California Adventure park, you can purchase the map at Elias & Co., Oswald’s, Radiator Springs Curios, Tower Hotel Gifts and Treasures in Paradise.

Each map and set of stickers will cost $4.95, plus tax at select locations. And whether you choose to hunt for eggs or not, return your map to a Port of Entry at Epcot or Elias & Co. at Disney California Adventure park for a surprise.

Maps will be available while supplies last and no discounts apply. You should also know that separate admission is required to enter Disney Theme Parks and the experience is subject to restrictions and change without notice.

Fun idea. I’ll be on lookout for these when I’m visiting Disney California Adventure next week.

Oh, no! :( I’ll be at WDW for Easter week. I wish this was delayed until then! Or at least extended. I hope this means there’s something even better in store for the weeks surrounding Easter.

This should be fun, and great timing. I have friends coming out from PA next week and am renewing my passes to visit Disney with them. I hope supplies hold out until we get there!


Michael from PA on March 15th, 2013 at 12:31 pm

They do this at Tokyo Disneyland! It’s a lot of fun. Too bad they don’t have my favorite egg, R2-D2.

Will they also be selling the Mickey egg-shaped popcorn bucket?


Jean from VA on March 15th, 2013 at 2:03 pm

Bummer. We’re going to just miss it since we leave on Sunday. Sounds like great fun and I would love to do this with my daughter.


Lucinda from IL on March 15th, 2013 at 4:42 pm

The kids and I love this sort of thing. Should be fun!

Is it a Vinylmation that will available to purchase?


Dinah on March 15th, 2013 at 8:38 pm

So fun, can’t wait! Thomas: After we return the map for the surprise, do we get to keep the map?


Freddy on March 16th, 2013 at 10:54 am

how fun my kids would LOVE this!


Suzanne on March 18th, 2013 at 11:58 pm

Our family did this today…we thought it was a lot of fun! My kids (ages 9 1/2 and 6 1/2) loved looking for the eggs. All of the eggs are outside so you don’t need to wait in any attraction lines to find them. We just wished there were more to find! The prize at the end is a vinylmation keychain with two charms (about 1″ each). At the redemption station, they had the keychains under large plastic eggs and each child got to pick an egg to determine which keychain they got. One of my kids got Simba and the other got Goofy. And yes, you get to keep the map when you’re done.

Wish this was going on at least through Easter.


Dinah on March 20th, 2013 at 12:35 pm

Yay!! Thanks, Suzanne!


Meredith on March 21st, 2013 at 2:34 pm

Thomas, do you know if the maps are still available at DCA? I’m hoping to play tomorrow!


Sydney on March 29th, 2013 at 6:15 pm

I’m wondering if this was extended through this weekend? I’d really like to go tomorrow and do it!
