Does anyone know if Disney will be doing this again this year?
Any pictures available for the relay races?Walt Disney World is getting ready for the weeks surrounding Easter, which is one of the busiest periods of the year for the resort. The hustle and bustle soon will give way to a variety of holiday-themed activities for park-goers and hotel guests. While Disney World has not confirmed an Easter schedule, fellow bloggers have reported these activities are planned.

Mr. and Mrs. Bunny will hop along during the pre-parade show, which begins about 2:50 p.m., on Easter Sunday. From 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., the couple will greet guests intermittently in the Tour Guide Gardens and pose for photos.
