Last weekend we went to Disneyland. The Egg-stragavanza started on Friday, April 5th and we have done these Easter egg scavenger hunts every single year. I personally like to do it right when it starts because I have heard some of the more popular eggs can sell out. This has never happened to us since we always do the hunt right away once the dates are announced. Every year you can do the scavenger egg hunt in Downtown Disney, Disneyland, and DCA. There are 3 different maps. There are separate maps for Disneyland, DCA, and Downtown Disney. Stickers are included with your map and once you find the location of each giant size character egg you place the corresponding sticker on your map until you complete the scavenger egg hunt.  If you are planning on going soon to Disneyland I have a great deal on tickets click here.

Spring time is a wonderful time to visit the parks and this just adds to the fun. The activity is easy to do and perfect for the whole family. Even if you have been to Disneyland, DCA, and Downtown Disney, the hunt will give you the opportunity to explore the theme parks and Downtown Disney in a whole new way. Each map and sticker set costs $6.99 (plus tax), though you do get an annual pass discount if you have one. Whether you complete it or not, each map comes with 1 plastic Disney character egg (you get to choose between the 6 character eggs they have). We always like to get a complete set for each child, so we buy 4 maps for Disneyland, 4 maps for DCA, and 4 maps for Downtown Disney to guarantee that we get 12 plastic character eggs and each child has a full set. That is what we have done every year. The kids seriously love this and at home they play with the eggs and hide them around the house. Plus, inside each egg there is a special surprise. The dates for the 2019 hunt are April 5th through April 21st. Believe me, you don't want to miss this!

In Disneyland you can buy the map on Main Street.  Look for the table set up near Disney Showcase.  In DCA you can buy the map at Los Feliz Five & Dime or Elias & Co.  In Downtown Disney you can buy the map at World Of Disney.

The Food and Wine Festival is also going on right now at DCA. It started March 1st and will end on April 23rd. The food and drinks are amazing.
