It’s that time of year again – time for the Walt Disney World Resort gingerbread displays to wow guests at several resort hotels.
Disney’s Contemporary Resort has an all-new gingerbread display this year which is inspired by Frozen. The display is an ice castle that features Anna, Elsa, Olaf, Kristoff, and Sven in addition to sugar snowflakes, gingerbread shingles, and chocolate trees.
At Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa guests can check out the life-size gingerbread house that stands 16 feet high and features 40 window panes. The chefs use the same building plans but build a fresh house every year using 1,050 pounds of honey, 700 pounds of chocolate, 600 pounds of powdered sugar, 800 pounds of flour, and 140 pints of egg whites.
The house is made up of more than 10,000 pieces of gingerbread.
Disney’s Beach Club Resort once again is displaying the life-size Holiday Carousel with ponies made from chocolate and fondant. The carousel features 14 hidden Mickeys – one for each year that resort has displayed the gingerbread carousel.
Next door at the Yacht Club Resort guests can check out the holiday village with a miniature train surround by sugar rock mountains.
And guests in Epcot can visit Mrs. Claus’ Bake Shop on the Promenade at the American Adventure Pavilion. The shop sells fresh baked gingerbread, sugar, and chocolate cookies in addition to hot chocolate and cider. There’s also a gingerbread version of the United States Capitol building inside the store.
The gingerbread displays will be up through the first week of January.
