2019 Grand Floridian Chocolate Egg Display!

Happy Spring, Disney Fans!

Every year, the pastry chefs go nuts hand carving giant chocolate eggs into edible displays of Disney art. They are pretty amazing and the popularity of them grows annually. In fact, this year there are even eggs on display in other resorts too, like The Contemporary and The Yacht and Beach Club. Now, I haven't gotten the chance to check out any of the other displays yet, but I do have pictures to share of the eggs from The Grand, so let's check 'em out!
