If you haven’t been down to the Walt Disney Resort around Easter time, you probably never knew that the pastry chefs at the Grand Floridian create massive chocolate Easter Eggs for display in the resort. I’ve also seen eggs over in the 4th floor of the Contemporary in past years. This is the 7th year that the eggs have been on display.
You can see a video of how they are made from an older Disney Parks Blog post here.
Team member, and all around great guy, Ben Hendel got a chance to walk through the eggs over at the Grand Floridian to capture some great images of the eggs this year. Photographing the eggs can be a bit tricky! There is always a crowd looking at the wonderful creations so you really have to consider your composition to pull off a good shot. Thanks to Ben for getting the images of this year’s eggs!
Celebrate the circle of life with this Lion King themed Easter Egg. I love all the details in the animals that are hanging off the side of the egg.
Even the villains get in on the Easter Egg action. Notice how Ben used a shallow depth of field to blur out the background and put the focus on the egg.
A new movie means an opportunity for a new themed egg for the pastry chefs at the Grand Floridian. Here’s their Moana themed Easter Egg.
