23 VINTAGE Photos of Easter at the Disney Parks

Easter and the Disney Parks go hand in hand. The beautiful pastel colors and spring flowers that accompany Easter time fits perfectly with Main Street. Over the years, Disneyland and Walt Disney World have always made Easter at the Parks extra special. Today, as we celebrate Easter, let's take a look back and revisit some of our favorite memories from years past with these 23 vintage photos, and a special bonus video, that you are going to love...
