Easter Grand Floridian Resort Characters Mickey and Minnie

Easter Grand Floridan character meet and greets 2014

We started out our Easter meet plan with the goal of hoping to meet Mickey and Minnie in their purple formal attire.  We thought we’d park at the TTC and take the monorail over.  We arrived before 8:00am with the goal of being on the Grand Floridian lawn by 8:15am.  Well, all didn’t go as planned.  As we prepared to board the resort monorail, we were told there would be a minor delay to do a “maintenance test.”  The train sat there for a couple of minutes, then we all boarded.  It moved back and forth a few times, made a really odd braking noise and then it totally powered off.

We sat there with no power for a couple of minutes and they re-booted the system.  We thought we were ready to go.  We moved a few feet forward and they reopened the doors and allowed more people to board.  After a few more minutes we finally moved a short distance.  The train would start, then stop, then start…

After quite a while, we finally arrived at the Grand after 8:30am.  We were disappointed that we were late, but then found that the White Rabbit was meeting guests.  He’s always late too, so it all worked out.  We entered the long line and moved along hoping for Mickey and Minnie.  We were allowed to snap a few photos of White Rabbit before they rotated.

After getting a few shots of the White Rabbit, my little girl took part in the candy scramble.  It’s like an Easter egg hunt without the eggs.  They had a LOT of quality candy on the ground for the kids to gather and sorted it by age group so the teens didn’t dominate the toddlers.Easter Grand Floridian Resort Characters

In addition to the candy and crafts and some little games for kids, they had free danishes, muffins, juice, hot chocolate and coffee.Easter Grand Floridian Resort Characters

With very little effort, Debbie was able to acquire all this candy and it was all FREE.  It was full of great things like kit kat, hersheys, tootsie rolls, almond joy and such.Easter Grand Floridian Resort Characters

Shortly after the Candy Scramble, Mickey and Minnie appeared in their Easter finest.   I got to chat with a wonderful Cast Member named Gracie who help take our family shot with my camera.  Pretty background for an Easter photo, right?Easter Grand Floridian Resort Characters Mickey and Minnie

The line for Mickey and Minnie took most guests about 30 minutes at the Grand Floridian because the resort is so popular with all the activities they offer and the FREE FOOD.  See the little pooch of my stomach sticking out.  It’s all their fault!  My daughters and I had a blast there after the monorail delay and my son did his typical sleeping late.  We moved on to the Contemporary resort, which I’ll discuss in the next post.

  1. Mickey and Minnie look great! Love Minnie’s purple dress. Seeing the pictures you post on holidays make me want to spend my holidays at Disney World too!

  2. Awesome! Wish we could’ve been there. My favorite color is purple and I would’ve loved to have gotten a photo with Mickey and Minnie in their purple formal wear. It looks like Easter would be a fun time to be at Disney with kids. Never thought about Disney at Easter until seeing all the photos on Facebook today of Magic Kingdom and now this post. All the spring colors are beautiful. I think my daughter would’ve been thrilled. Happy Easter and thanks for another great post!

    1. Thanks! Easter foliage and characters are fun. It’s REALLY busy here this week, but the characters at the resorts on Easter Sunday are a lot of fun. You can only get in a few resorts, so we’ll have to shoot for more next year.
