The Grand Floridian unveiled its whimsical 2018 Easter Egg Display on March 24th. Executive Pastry Chef Erich Herbitschek, and his Pastry Team, spent the past couple of months preparing for their 7th year presenting this amazing Annual Display. We were on hand to meet some of the Creators of these beautiful Eggs as they finished prepping their display.
Meet Magaly; the adorable Creator of this amazing Frozen Butterfly Fairy Egg. If you look closely you will see signs of Spring in the form of colorful flowers amongst the traces of snowflakes and frozen fractals. Her whimsical egg is one of the newest additions to this year’s display.
Meet Rheanna; the lovely developer of the all-new Nightmare Before Christmas Egg. She also restructured the Evil Queen Egg for us this year. Rheanna is definitely in touch with her Villain side!
Here is a peek at some other new additions to the Grand Floridian 2018 Easter Egg Display mixed in with some from the 2017 display:
Many Eggs are preserved in a temperature controlled room allowing the Pastry Team to refurbish them the following year. The majestic American Bald Eagle is one of these eggs and sits central on its own table:

We wish to send a special thank you to Executive Pastry Chef Erich Herbitschek and his Team for this incredible 2018 Easter Egg Display. Each Egg takes 40-60 hours and between 2-4 months to complete as they work on their eggs about 1 hour at a time.
