I remember a time when Catholic Mass was offered at the Polynesian Resort’s Luau Cove. Unfortunately, that is not the case anymore. Today, religious services are only offered on Walt Disney World property on Christmas Day and Easter Sunday. These services are typically offered in the Fantasia Ballroom at the Contemporary Resort. The 2011 Easter services schedule hasn’t been released yet but if history is any guide two Catholic Masses will be offered, one at 8am and the other at 10:15 am. A Protestant service is available at 9am. Due to expected large crowds, parking is restricted at the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Polynesian Resort, and the Contemporary Resort. Guests can either take boat or monorail transportation to the Contemporary or board a shuttle bus bringing worshippers from the Magic Kingdom to the Contemporary Resort.
For religious services throughout the year, you’ll have to visit a nearby house of worship. I contacted Disney to get a list of local resources.
