Grande Lakes Orlando, the 500-acre luxury resort destination in the headwaters of the Florida Everglades anchored by luxury hotels The Ritz-Carlton Orlando and JW Marriott Orlando, invites guests to welcome the arrival of spring with a “Grande” Easter celebration. Boasting the largest Easter Egg hunt at an Orlando resort, in addition to abundant holiday themed programming for all ages including an opportunity for children to win an extra-special “Grande Golden Ticket” within complimentary candy bars, alongside attractive stay packages and signature amenities, Grande Lakes Orlando has curated an Easter experience unlike any other this April.
Explore An Extraordinary Easter
As spring bursts into bloom, families and guests are greeted with themed treats upon arrival to start their holiday on a sweet note. Families with children checking into The Ritz-Carlton and JW Marriott Orlando will be welcomed with a special chocolate bar, five of which will contain a coveted “Grande Golden Ticket.” Those five lucky Grande Golden Ticket recipients from each hotel will be honored in the JW Marriott lobby on Easter Sunday, where they will receive a special themed amenity that includes 50 pounds worth of chocolate treats from the Easter Bunny.
Also taking place on Easter Sunday is the largest Easter Egg hunt at an Orlando resort. The expansive 3,200 egg extravaganza provides an exciting outdoor adventure on the Everglades property for children up to the age of 12 to enjoy. Participating children will receive an Easter basket to collect all their treasures in during the resort-wide event.
Throughout the holiday weekend, families can also enjoy a holiday carnival on the Da Vinci lawn, complete with festive balloon artists, bounce houses, face painting, live entertainment and much more, in addition to elevated, kid-friendly dining experiences across the resort’s award-winning venues. At The Ritz-Carlton Orlando Lobby Lounge, families of all ages may partake in “Easter Bunny Cottontail Tea” featuring an on-site Easter Bunny and egg hunt, or head to Highball & Harvest at The Ritz-Carlton Orlando for a brunch experience boasting its own egg hunt or enjoy a special brunch menu at the JW Marriott Orlando Primo featuring a visit from the Easter Bunny. All Easter programming is exclusive to guests of the resort.
