The Egg-stravaganza at the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival has become one of the most popular activities, and for good reason! It’s such a fun way to wander through the countries and the kids (and adults) will have a blast searching for the brightly colored eggs with their favorite characters painted on them. This year’s egg hunt has been extended because of popular demand, so you can purchase a sticker sheet and hunt as many times as you’d like during the entire festival! I’ve got some photos, tips, and even some (well marked!) spoilers for you, so make sure you bookmark this page if you’re planning on giving the egg hunt a try! If you haven’t seen my post about the other NEW things at this year’s festival make sure you check it out!
Tips for Beginners
- The egg hiders are good. Really good. You know that one younger uncle you have who was a pro at hiding eggs for the little kids by the time he was 15? These egg hiders put him to shame. This year it’s super difficult because several of the eggs are inside. This is a major new development and it makes the hunt even more challenging.
- Try to grab an egg hunting sheet from the pin trading pavilion in the courtyard between Innoventions East and West. The other locations get pretty busy.
- Look high and low (but mostly high) to find these little guys.
- Don’t expect them to be in obvious locations. If you have trouble (but don’t want to check the spoilers below), ask a cast member! Some of them will give you a hint, while some won’t. If you don’t get a hint from one, just go check with someone else.
- The eggs you’re hunting are around 2 feet tall and painted like the characters on the sticker sheet you get.
If you don’t want to know where the eggs are (I’ll be including some photos of the more difficult eggs to find) look away now.
Are you suuuuure you want to see them?
Here you go!
Canada has the Thumper egg. It’s located deep in the country, near the waterfall. You can see it from upstairs or downstairs, and it’s outside!
The U.K. has the White Rabbit egg. It’s inside the toy shop, on top of a display cabinet.
France‘s egg is Minnie Mouse and it’s pretty easy to find. It’s near the ceiling inside the large shop to the back, left side of the country (near the bakery).
Morocco‘s egg is Perry the Platypus and it’s a little more difficult if you’re traveling counterclockwise. It’s outside on a ledge above the stage on the main pathway around World Showcase.
The egg in Japan is pretty tough too. It’s Figment and it’s low and somewhat hidden in a landscape bed behind some trash cans just in front of the lake.
The egg in America is pretty easy to find as well. It’s Mickey Mouse and it’s located on top of a display shelf inside the gift shop.
The egg in Italy is by far the most difficult to see. It’s Goofy and it’s really high up on the tower known as San Marco Campanile.
The egg in Germany is Dale. It isn’t difficult to find because it’s hard to see, but it’s sort of hard to get to. It’s located inside on a cabinet in the back of the sports shop. The problem with that is that you can’t really see where the door to the shop is because the line for one of the beer vendors always extends in front of the door.
The Outpost egg is Chip and it’s easy to see traveling counterclockwise around World Showcase. It’s on top of a water tower!
Jon thought the egg in China was easy to see, but I thought it was pretty difficult. It’s Pluto and it’s located outside, behind some trees by the pond.
The Norway egg is Daisy and it’s pretty easy to find. It’s located inside the Frozen gift shop in the new part of the country (by the Elsa and Anna meet up).
The Mexico egg is Donald and it’s a tough one. Not so much because of where it’s located, but because it’s inside and it’s dark. He’s located on a balcony to the left side of the building, near the line for the Three Caballeros ride.
It’s rumored that the eggs have been moved during the festival (the horror!), so if you find out that one of the eggs isn’t still in the spot I tell you about just let me know and I’ll make the change!
