The life-size Christmas gingerbread house is legendary at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, but we can’t wait for the 3rd annual Easter egg display in the spacious lobby with springtime edible works of art, this year April 4 – 22.

Under the guidance of Master pastry Chef Erich Herbitschek, the pastry team at the Grand hand-paints the enormous eggs (16 to 20 inches tall) with tinted cocoa butter to amazing themes – the “Frozen” egg is sure to be a big hit this year. Look for eggs telling the stories of “The Little Mermaid,” “Cinderella,” “Pocahontas,” “Lady and the Tramp,” all created with modeling chocolate, fondant, sculpted sugar and royal icing.

There are 18 eggs in all this year, and each takes 18 to 20 hours to create, says Chef Erich. And, best of all, they’re completely edible.

These are amazing. I hope you’ll post pictures of all of them. Maybe after the event so as to not ruin it for those lucky enough to see them in person.

Have read many travel books & blogs/newsletters (specifically about WDW) and have never heard of this egg display… would love to see this display from 2014 and would be very interested in visiting near Easter in the future! Leave it to Disney to keep coming up with amazing and beautiful ideas & details to keep the resorts & parks fresh and interesting! I say the “Imagineers” are also evident in the kitchens, the gardens, the decoration….and so on! I love the “Disney Detail” and this egg display is a beautiful surprise!

They may be edible, but who could bring themselves to consume such beautiful works of art?! Simply stunning!
