Be sure you check this entire post; it includes links to Disney discount dining coupons and the calendar for Disney timeshare owner extended park hours.

Disney timeshare owners enjoy Easter holiday.Easter is always a fun time to plan a Disney timeshare vacation and visit the Disney theme parks, and this year is no exception. Disney’s Easter festivities are running throughout this week, April 17-24.

The Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom Easter Parade (on Easter Sunday, April 24), will appropriately be hosted by Mr. and Mrs. Easter Bunny and will begin with a special pre-parade show called “Celebrate a Dream come True.” The Main Street Poodle Society Ladies and the Mobile Azalea Trail Maids will join Mr. and Mrs. Easter Bunny in Town Square before the parade. Throughout the week, the Bunny family will be greeting park guests, and will most often be found at the Tour Guide Garden at City Hall, Main Street, USA.

Disney’s Epcot will be the site for Easter egg hunts, open to children between the ages of 3 and 9. The egg hunts will be scheduled at 20-minute intervals between 10 AM and 5:20PM at the Heritage Garden at the American Adventure Pavilion. Children ages 6 to 12 can also participate in Easter egg relays at the Future World West Garden, scheduled in 40-minute intervals from 10:40AM to 4:40PM. There, you will also find cupcake decorating stations where young park visitors can decorate their own Easter cupcake.

In Disney’s Animal Kingdom park, look for Thumper and Miss Bunny and a DJ Easter Bunny that will greet park guests on Easter Sunday afternoon for a little Easter “Hip Hop.” And Disney timeshare owners who head to the beach at the Disney Vero Beach Resort will discover the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland, on hand to greet them. At the Vero Beach Resort timeshare there will also be an Easter egg hunt, from 7 AM to 9AM on Easter Sunday morning, along with an amazing Easter buffet.

Disney Orlando will host special Easter worship services Sunday April 24, with a Protestant service at 9AM at the Contemporary Resort and Catholic Mass at 8AM and 10:15AM in the Fantasia Ballroom.
