Ultimate List of Disney Easter Eggs

Ultimate List of Disney Easter Eggs

Written by Sue Nowicki Updated December 13, 2016 (After release of Moana)

Every Disney movie released seems to pay homage to those movies which have come before by placing something called “Disney Easter Eggs” in their movies. No, I am not talking about actual Easter Eggs. Disney Easter Eggs are characters from one Disney movie stealthily placed in another Disney movies.

Here is our ultimate list of Disney movie “Easter Eggs”:
