Disney Easter Basket Ideas

Start with a container, then base your purchases on what will fit inside. Aim for between 4-7 items in a variety of sizes. Choose a healthy range of treats, practical and seasonal items, and something fun. I’ve also included book suggestions for all ages under each age group, from babies to teens.

Just like these Disney stocking stuffers, getting creative when shopping for Easter basket gifts is part of the fun in the process. Putting together a fantastic Disney Easter basket doesn’t have to be a pricey endeavor. I’ve included plenty of inexpensive Easter basket ideas, all with a Disney twist!

A Tisket, A Tasket – Finding the Best Easter Basket

Putting together an inspired Disney Easter basket starts with finding the best container. The vessel can also be a gift, as I’ll share! Here are a few thoughts before you buy. My kids own fabric Easter baskets like this Mickey & Friends Easter Basket, sold on Etsy by BungalowBiasChicago. They are lightweight and easy to carry on an egg hunt and can hold a nice amount of goodies!

If you have lots of goodies or need something larger try a reusable tote like this Raya and the Last Dragon Shopping Tote that highlights the new movie.

Disney Easter Egg Hunt

Create an Easter egg hunt with a Disney theme! I’ve included some great ideas for Easter egg hunt stuffers. In order to not lose any of these valuable eggs in the yard, have the “Easter Bunny” keep a checklist of placement for the eggs with big prizes inside. Follow a few of these ideas to make your Disney Easter hunt hunt truly magical.

Something to Wear

Now, for the goodies to stuff inside the basket! I like to start with something sweet and practical that my sweeties can wear after church on Easter Sunday. A bathing suit is one of the top Disney Easter basket ideas. Swim wear is ideal for warmer climates or for those planning a Disney vacation with kids. Pajamas are a great way to end the day. Disney t-shirts like this tie-dye Disneyland shirt are perfect for those getting ready to pack the suitcase for a trip! (click images below to shop)

Themed Disney Easter Basket Ideas

One of the easiest ways to build a Disney Easter basket is by keeping with a theme. Base your child’s basket theme around their favorite Disney character or movie. Or if your child has a top activity, like sports, cooking or dance, choose Disney themed basket stuffers that match their hobby. For example, this Disney Cars Ball and Glove Set is awesome for a young baseball fan!

Sweet Disney Easter Basket Treats

Yummy treats and snacks are an Easter basket must. These are a few ideas for both sweet and savory treats.

Who said the Easter basket should only have candy? If you can’t track down Disney-specific candies for the Easter basket but want to stick to the theme, look in the snack aisle of the grocery. Non-candy snacks are always welcome, especially if you don’t buy them often! Mickey and his friends can be found on many snack foods including Pepperidge Farm Goldfish crackers, Brother’s Fruit Crisps, good2grow Fruit Juice, Good Health Veggie Chips and Fruit Snacks.
