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.

Don’t forget to search high!

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.

Can you purchase one of the large eggs? No, the large eggs are not for sale. You use the large eggs to match the location to the stickers that come with the map.
What is the fine print? Purchasing limits will apply, and game boards available while supplies last. Limit of 10 game boards per person. One surprise per game board. Game board redemption valid through April 18, 2021. The experience is subject to restrictions and may change or be cancelled without notice. What this means is maps may not be available all the way until April 18th. In addition, popular prize eggs may go first and may not be available all the way to April 18th. If you can plan to do the egg hunt in the first weeks, that will keep your chances up that will find the prize egg of your choice.
Where do you park? The only official Disney parking for DTD is in the Simba lot, and read about parking in my article on Downtown Disney District. Parking is $10 required upon entry to the parking lot and no validation is available. The Simba lot is just to the south and west of Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel. Enter from Disneyland Drive into the parking lot, and then walk to the entrance to DTD near the Disneyland Hotel. NOTE: Disneyland will close this parking lot periodically if it becomes full. You can check Disneyland’s Twitter account @Disneyland Today to check for the current status of the parking lot. DIVA TIP – if the Simba lot is full/closed, consider being dropped off along Harbor Blvd at the east entrance or at the DTD drop off just north of the Disneyland Hotel on Disneyland Drive. If you are staying at one of the local hotels, enter on the east side as the line to enter Downtown Disney District is significantly shorter.

Hello! I'm Tinker Belle Diva. Just like you, I love all things Disney and have since my first trip to the Walt Disney World in 1980, followed quickly by my first trip to Disneyland. The love of Disney runs strong in my family and has been passed along to my daughter and son, who have been to Disneyland more times than I can count!
