After a one year hiatus, the Eggstravaganza is back for 2021! Disney provided us some details on the Egg Scavenger Hunt at the Disneyland Resort and here are my tips.
Where and when will the Egg Hunt happen? This year, the event will start on March 15th, and will continue through April 18th, 2021 (while supplies last of course). The hunt will only be in Downtown Disney District, and it will be held seven days a week.
How much will it cost and what do you get? You purchase a map and sticker set for $7.99 plus tax (Legacy Annual Pass and other discounts do apply) at Disney merchandise locations, which includes World of Disney and WonderGround Gallery. DIVA TIP – Since many of the smaller shops will have a mobile waitlist for entry, you most likely will need to go to World of Disney since that store typically has the shortest wait. Only Disney owned merchandise stores will sell the maps, not locations such as Curl Surf or the Lego Store. For each map you purchase, you earn one prize egg. You cannot buy the eggs separately, so you have to buy a map to get a prize egg. These are small plastic eggs that are empty inside, similar to typical Easter eggs. DIVA TIP – You can pick from the available choices of eggs when you get the map or wait until after you have finished the hunt. If you wait, you will need to go back into World of Disney or Disney’s Pin Traders to show them your map AND your receipt to collect your egg. I prefer to collect my egg when I buy my map so that I don’t need to return. There are six eggs to choose from, so you will need to buy six maps if you want all of them (there is a maximum of 10 maps per person). You keep the map as part of your souvenir.
How do you hunt for eggs? By searching for large eggs decorated as Disney characters! Look both inside stores and outside. Look high and look low. Look in bushes and up on rooftops. If you get stuck, the map will have a hint where to find the eggs. They can be a little tricky and that is part of the fun! You can then use the stickers to put them on the corresponding location on the map.
If you do not find all of the eggs do you still get the prize? Yes!! Because you can pick up the prize when you purchase the map, you do not need to solve it first. But even if you do not find all the eggs, you will still get a prize when you return. If you don’t want to place the stickers on the map, you can skip that part too.
