gingerbread houseThis year marks the 15th anniversary of the Haunted Mansion Holiday Gingerbread Houses at Disneyland.

The Haunted Mansion Holiday is one of the highlights of Halloweentime at Disneyland, and the gingerbread house is part of the display in the ballroom of the Haunted Mansion.

This year’s house – inspired by Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas – was made with 200 pounds of gingerbread, 200 pounds of powdered sugar, 4 gallons of egg whites, 1 gallon of lemon juice, 50 pounds of fondant, and 1/3 pound of glitter.

The biggest Haunted Mansion Holiday Gingerbread House was 15 feet tall, the smallest was just 5 feet. It takes a team of four pastry chefs about 16 days to create the houses.
