    Coming to Disney world with my family for our 1st time on the week of St. Patricks day and was wondering if there will be special activities also including easter since it is so close this year? Plus any extra tips you can offer

    Hello, Katie!

    It sounds like your family is ready for a fabulous first visit this spring at Walt Disney World Resort. To capture all your magical moments, take advantage of the pre-arrival Memory Maker savings offer and use that savings to buy your family their first Dole Whips and Mickey Ear Hats. Here are a few more spring must-do activities: 

    Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival: This botanical festival is a treat for your eyes and tummy! From March 2 to May 30, 2016, Epcot is transformed into a gardener's paradise with topiaries, flowers, seminars and seasonal foods from Outdoor Kitchens.

    St. Patrick's Day: Disney Springs is the place to celebrate with a visit to Raglan Road for traditional Irish music and fare. In the past, I have even found a few charming treats to satisfy my sweet tooth! 

    Easter: Everyone will enjoy participating in the 2016 Egg-stravaganza where themed "eggs" are hidden throughout Epcot. Another spring experience we have enjoyed is the chocolate Easter Eggs at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. They are amazing. In past years an Easter Sunday service has been offered at Disney's Contemporary Resort, so confirm location and times with your Disney Resort hotel for this year's information. 

    To stay up to date with events, subscribe to the Disney Parks Blog E-Newsletter for details about spring opportunities that may be available during your visit. 

    I hope you find these suggestions helpful. My space is limited, but please visit us again for more first-time tips or other questions you may have. We are hEAR to help!
