Family Fun

Easter is quickly hopping upon us, and you know what that means—springtime weather, colorful flowers, beautifully decorated chocolate eggs waiting for you to find, and, of course, a visit from the Easter Bunny. This year, Easter Sunday falls on April 21, which is a bit later than usual. That’s good news if you ask us, because it means there’s more time to plan a holiday vacation. And you’ve come to the right place to learn about all the fun taking place in Kissimmee for Easter, so let’s jump to it!

Join the Gaylord Palms Eggstravaganza

Hop on over to the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center for the annual Easter Eggstravaganza. Throughout March and April, the resort transforms into “Easter Central”, with enormous painted eggs in the atrium, spring-colored kaleidoscope light displays, and an array of activities and events such as Hop-A-Long Pool Parties, Easter Bunny Scavenger Hunts, and Easter Tea Parties in the Mad Tea Escape Room (complete with fun-filled riddles to solve).  

And on select dates, you can dine with royalty—including the King of Easter, Candy Countess, and the Earl of Chocolate—at The Royal Egg Court Character Breakfast. With fun games, music, and a delicious breakfast, it’s the perfect way to celebrate the holiday.

That’s not all! The Easter Bunny has checked in at Gaylord Palms as well and will be taking photos and handing out surprises every weekend until April 21.

Go on the Hunt

Is there a master egg hunter in your family? Make your way to the Florida Technical College on Saturday, April 13 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The kids can embark on this challenging egg search, while you enter your name in the Easter Basket raffle and get your cottontail shaking with live music.


Still looking for even more eggs to fill your basket? In Celebration, you can take part in the annual Eggs-traordinary Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 20 at Spring Park and Heritage Hall from 8:45 a.m. to 10 a.m. Children up to 10 years old should bring a basket for the egg collection and be ready for a hip-hoppin’ good time. There are thousands of eggs waiting to be found, along with music and entertainment for all. And, in keeping with his busy seasonal schedule, the Easter Bunny will also make an appearance.

Enjoy (Easter) Eggs for Brunch

Easter Brunch is Kissimmee, Florida

In Kissimmee, we love to brunch, especially on Easter Sunday. Bring your appetite to the Kissimmee Bay Country Club on April 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for morning delights, treats from the garden, and special dessert sweets to boost your energy for the egg hunt starting at noon. Best of all, you can pair brunch with a round of golf to save on the cost of your meal. Food, golf, treats—it’s all our favorites in one place.

Our friends at the Kissimmee Bay Country Club strongly recommend making reservations for brunch to ensure your spot. After all, nobody wants to hear “the last one there’s a rotten egg,” especially on Easter.  

Winner, Winner, Easter Dinner

A delicious dinner at the Columbia restaurant

If you ask us, Easter dinner is always one of the best meals of the year. And it’s even better when it’s served at the Columbia Restaurant in Celebration. This Easter, the Columbia will open at 11 a.m. and serve their complete dinner menu all day. They’ll also be offering special Easter features, including baked Virginia ham and Dali, a domestic lean leg of lamb with red wine, garlic, lemon, and oregano, roasted in rich gravy. Dali is a favorite of the “caretaker” of the Columbia Restaurant, Richard Gonzmart, and the recipe has been passed down through his family for generations.

Walk-ins are welcome at the Columbia, but once again, we recommend making a reservation.

An Egg-ceptional Night Under the Stars

With all the candy collected, it’s time for the best part: eating it! Make your way to Old Town Kissimmee on the evening of April 21 for a movie night under the stars. They’ll be showing Disney’s live-action “Cinderella”— the perfect family film for every bunny to cap off the Easter weekend. The show starts around 7 p.m., so be sure to bring a chair and snacks (and maybe purchase a few more from your favorite Old Town store, because there can never be too many treats).


As you can tell, we have great egg-spectations for Easter in Kissimmee this year, and we hope you’ll join in the fun. For more ideas and information, keep your eyes peeled on our events calendar.
