Disney’s Beach Club Resort
Our tour begins at Disney’s Beach Club Resort near Epcot. In this resort’s lobby you’ll find a life-size gingerbread carousel that’s completely edible! Made from gingerbread, chocolate, and honey, this iconic spinning carousel is celebrating its 20th anniversary. Themed to Peter Pan, each of the horses represents a character from the film! Keep an eye out for 20 different Hidden Mickeys that can be found throughout the carousel.
Disney’s BoardWalk Inn
Disney’s BoardWalk Inn features a miniature version of its boardwalk in the lobby during the holiday season! This year the display features the BoardWalk Bakery, Trattoria Al Forno, The Flying Fish, the ESPN Club, and more. Each gingerbread location is decorated with themed Christmas trees outside of the locations! Although this is one of the smaller displays on property, the level of detail involved in this piece is worth the visit alone.
