Walt Disney World Resort Gingerbread Displays Ready for the Holidays

gingerbreadThe gingerbread displays at the Walt Disney World Resort are ready for the holidays!

The popular Gingerbread Holiday Castle is already up at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Guests will find the display on the Grand Canyon Concourse. Once again the display is inspired by Disney’s Frozen and feature Mary Blair-inspired characters. Be sure to look for the 16 hidden Olafs.

The life-size gingerbread house in the lobby of Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort is open beginning today, November 16.

Guests will find gingerbread house decorating demonstrations every day in the lobby (except Sundays). The gingerbread house is 16-feet tall and was made with 1,050 pounds of honey, 800 pounds of flour, and it takes 400 hours to bake.

At Disney’s BoardWalk guests will be able to build gingerbread houses to take home at the all-new Gingerbread Academy.

The cost is $125 for up to four guests. And if you just want to decorate a gingerbread cookie, the price is $8.95 per ornament and the proceeds go to Give Kids the World. There’s also a chance to work with a Disney pastry chef on holiday cupcakes – and that costs $10.95 per person.

The gingerbread holiday carousel is back at Disney’s Beach Club. This life-size creation is made with 36 pounds of honey, 96 pounds of flour, 100 pounds of icing, and it features 17 hidden Mickeys. At the Yacht Club guests will find a Holiday Village with a miniature train.

There is also a recreation of the United States Capitol Building and the Lincoln Memorial in the American Adventure pavilion in Epcot. This display debuts November 25 and features five hidden Mickeys. It was created with 50 pounds of gingerbread and 20 pounds of icing.

And finally, a 3-foot-long African-inspired Marektplace debuts in the lobby of the Tusker House Restaurant at Disney’s Animal Kingdom on November 23. This gingerbread creation was made with 23 pounds of flour, 8 pounds of honey, 25 pounds of dark chocolate, and 5 pounds of white chocolate.
