Disney chefs have outdone themselves this season. Walt Disney World, Disneyland Resort, Disney Cruise Line and Aulani - A Disney Resort & Spa are decked out with incredible gingerbread displays good enough to eat! Here is a list of the 10 gingerbread houses, carousels and other baked goodness you need to see this season:
Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
The Grand Floridian is celebrating 20 years of gingerbread creations with a14-foot-tall gingerbread house. The house and its ornaments are made from a classic Austria recipe. The resort also hosts Gingerbread house decorating demonstrations daily through Dec.25.
Disney’s Contemporary Resort
Cinderella Castle is an iconic Walt Disney World figure so it’s only fitting that Disney’s Contemporary Resort re-create it with an “it’s a small world” backdrop depicting Cinderella and Prince Charming greeting guests in the castle forecourt. The 18-foot display is made with thousands of gingerbread blocks and includes a life-sized spinning carousel.
Disney’s Beach Club Resort
Gingerbread has never been as exciting as it is at Disney’s Beach Club Resort. Guests can take a ride with Donald Duck- and Daisy Duck-themed horses in the resort’s unique carousel gingerbread display.
Disney’s BoardWalk Resort
Enjoy a gingerbread version of the resort’s iconic locales such as BoardWalk Bakery, Flying Fish, Trattoria al Forno and more.
The American Adventure
Things are patriotic over at The American Adventure with gingerbread renditions of the U.S. Capitol, Lincoln Memorial and Washington Monument (topped with golden Mickey ears).
You’ll see double at Amorette’s Patisserie in Disney Springs. The pastry shop has created a replica of itself - right down to the gingerbread trees. You can see the display in the shop’s front window.
The Haunted Mansion
At Disneyland Resort, guests can enjoy a spooky Christmas with a gingerbread display created in honor of Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. A giant spider with glowing eyes hangs over the Grand Hall Table, attempting to pry the edible gingerbread mansion from its foundation as gingerbread zombies watch.
Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa
It took a village to create the gingerbread house at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. Disney artists, engineers and bakers helped put together a gingerbread house that includes over 600 pounds of gingerbread and Hidden Mickeys.
Disney Cruise Line
The gingerbread displays even extend to Disney Cruise Line. Aboard the four Disney Cruise Line ships, bakery teams were challenged to create their own individual gingerbread houses for display in the atrium lobby of each ship. Each features more than 600 pounds of gingerbread dough, 200-plus pounds of sugar and 5,000 gingerbread bricks.
Aulani – A Disney Resort & Spa
Celebrate gingerbread in Hawaii with “A Kakamora Holiday.” The festive display includes a chocolate tree, a Moana-inspired gingerbread hut, chocolate sleigh and Kakamoras celebrating with a tropical twist.
