Easter Brunch at Disney Springs
Easter’s On It’s Way!
I just got off the phone with the Easter Bunny who, ironically, just spoke with Mickey Mouse about the big holiday that’s just around the corner. He filled me in on how the egg dyeing, basket weaving, and fur fluffing was coming along, and when he explained how much he still had to get done, I felt honored he took a minute to chat with me on the phone! Thank goodness he did, though, because he let me in on some pretty great Easter offerings happening around Disney Springs! His biggest concern was making sure everyone has a great Easter brunch with their families, and I’ve go the scoop straight from the bunny himself on the spots offering special menus on the big day.
A Brunch Option for EveryBunny
Maria and Enzo’s is the newest eatery at Disney Springs, and they’re getting right into the swing of things by being one of the elite few offering a brunch menu this Easter Sunday. At Maria and Enzo’s, brunch will be served buffet style and, naturally, is a pre fixe for every guest. I haven’t had the chance to try this restaurant out yet, and Easter seems like it may be just the time! Honestly, the endless mimosas are enough to make me want to book a table, not to mention the long list of the restaurant’s most popular menu items (like lasagna and meatballs) will be on the buffet line! If that wasn’t enough to hook you, a chef-attended, made to order fritatta station will be available as well as scrumptious sounding panettone French toast. Yum!
Growing up, I remember going to (read: being dragged to) Easter mass in my head to toe Easter regalia that included a fluffy, brightly colored dress, tights, super shiny patent leather shoes, a matching sweater, and probably a hair bow with an Easter egg on it. From that description, I’m sure you gathered I’m not the dress-up type, but hey, that doesn’t mean my way is the right or only way to do Easter! STK Orlando is one of the higher-end restaurants in all of Disney Springs, and I think it’s just the spot to go if you’re planning to dress to the nines for an Easter brunch. Offerings here are best described as upscale twists of what you’d find on any New York City brunch menu; think lemon-ricotta pancakes and fried chicken and funnel cake. Like I said, there is no right or wrong way to go about accessorizing for Easter brunch…but you’re definitely wrong if you don’t order the cinnamon monkey bread.
House of Blues throws down a pretty mean brunch every Sunday of the year, and they are not taking the day off for Easter. Their ever popular, buffet-style Sunday Gospel Brunch will be offered on Easter Sunday with food choices ranging from BBQ chicken to made to order omelets. If you’re traveling with children who would much rather be in the parks than sitting at Easter brunch, this is your best bet! A gospel group will be on hand to perform live songs and celebrate the way they know best; just like they do it down south. After all, you’re in Florida! You can’t get much more southern than that. Your kids will be entertained by the fantastic singers while the adults can enjoy conversation along with their brunch.
In my opinion, Paddlefish screams ‘Easter’. I’m not sure if it’s the beautiful location- a giant paddleboat docked on the water- or the scrumptious food choices, but nowhere in all of Disney Springs is a more perfect location to celebrate Easter with the family. The restaurant will be preparing special menu items that will be available only for the 2018 Easter brunch dining window. The talk of the menu will certainly be the lamb loin dish that the chefs have crafted in anticipation of the holiday. In addition to the lamb special, the restaurant’s full brunch menu will be available as well. If you’re not too keen on a lamb dish, other options include their famous crab and asparagus Benedict! My personal favorite on the brunch menu is the Breakfast Burger complete with eggs, hash browns, cheese, and…bacon! The delicious burger is cooked to order based on your preferences, and with all of those amazing brunch toppings? You can rest assured you’ll be full and focused to take on the rest of your Easter day at Disney Springs!
Spend Easter Day at the Springs
It’s really tough to choose between these great brunch spots, but time is of the essence, so don’t doddle for too long! You’ll need a reservation at all of the above restaurants, so don’t delay in getting online and securing your spot! As of right now, all have availability, but it is very, very limited. After you enjoy your Easter brunch, stick around Disney Springs for a day filled with Easter happenings! Disney Photopass will have a special background set up in the Marketplace designed to showcase you decked out in your Sunday best! You can shop for Easter treats at the Ganachery, Ghirardelli, Sprinkles, and both Goofy’s Cando Co. and the Candy Cauldron. Keep those bunny ears open and you just might hear the Bunny Drum Corps playing around the Springs, you won’t wan to miss their performance! No matter how you like to celebrate Easter, Disney Springs has something for everyone. Which of these options are at the top of your list? Let us know in a comment!
