As much as we may enjoy going to Epcot center for all their special events, we have to accept the fact that most kids do not enjoy spending their whole day there. Yes they do have a few rides and character meets that kids generally enjoy, but they usually do not enjoy an all day trip to Epcot. My husband and I love walking around the countries especially during their special events. We have attended food and wine a number of times and love Flower and Garden. On our last trip, we were very excited that the Flower and Garden had begun already but when we told the girls we were going Epcot, right away they began to complain. They did not want to go because they did not want to walk around with us bored while we tried different foods and drinks (their words). When we got to the first country we saw a sign that read “EGGstravanganza”. I had heard about this event but had not had a chance to try it out. We decided to try it out and were so glad we did. The girls absolutely loved it and they enjoyed walking around the countries. My husband and I were able to enjoy trying out foods and drinks without complaints from my little ones.
So what is this EGGstravaganza? It’s an event they do at the world showcase in which you have to “find” eggs that are spread around the different countries for a prize. I wanted to write this blog to help those that are participating in the EGGstravaganza but may be having a hard time finding the hidden eggs. I have included clues for each country followed by the actual location of each egg this year. Hope it helps.
How do you participate in this event?
- At the gift shops at the beginning of the world showcase, they sell the map and stickers you need to participate. It costs $6. They give you a map and stickers to place on the map once you find the eggs.
- Walk around the countries and search everywhere (high and low) for the hidden eggs.
What happens when you are done?
At the end of your adventure, take your map with all your stickers to one of the shops again. They let you choose from different character eggs. The cast member made it clear to us that even if you do not find all the eggs, they will still let you take the prize home as long as you show them the map.
I will give you clues now for each country. If you wish to see the actual location of each egg per country, scroll past the clues until you see “locations”. Hope this information helps you during your challenge.
