Disney Holiday Magic Gingerbread Displays

inline imageWide-eyed wonderment will wash over Disney guests this holiday season when they see gingerbread displays at select Disney theme parks and Disney resort hotels, as well as the ships of Disney Cruise Line.

So magical is the aroma of gingerbread at holiday-time that National Gingerbread Day is celebrated Wednesday, Nov. 21. In the spirit of the season, Disney chefs decked the halls (roofs, doorways and windows, too) to create life-sized, gingerbread houses yummy enough to eat.

Heres a look at storybook houses, carousels and other confections baked with love by Disney chefs, with savory sweets for sale in most locations:
  • Disneys Grand Floridian Resort & Spa This year marks the 20th anniversary of this resort hotels gingerbread house. A classic recipe from Austria inspires the ornaments, cookies and a house standing 14 feet tall in the lobby. Home to The Bake Shop, the gingerbread house is the perfect place to pick up holiday treats. Gingerbread house decorating demonstrations occur daily Dec. 1-25.
  • Disneys Contemporary Resort Cinderella Castle is re-created with an its a small world backdrop depicting Cinderella and Prince Charming greeting guests in the castle forecourt. The 18-foot display is crafted from thousands of gingerbread blocks. A life-sized spinning carousel highlights the display.
  • Disneys Beach Club Resort Donald Duck- and Daisy Duck-themed horses are decorated with chocolate, sugar and fondant in this scrumptious classic carousel.
  • Disneys BoardWalk Resort A delightful gingerbread version of the resorts BoardWalk features iconic locales such as BoardWalk Bakery, Flying Fish, Trattoria al Forno and more.
  • The American Adventure Patriotic flair meets pastry magic at Epcot, where gingerbread renditions of the U.S. Capitol, Lincoln Memorial and Washington Monument (topped with golden Mickey ears!) are on display
  • Amorettes Patisserie This sophisticated pastry shop at Disney Springs dresses up its front window with a miniature gingerbread replica of itself right down to the gingerbread trees!
  • The Haunted Mansion Disneyland Resort turns to Tim Burtons The Nightmare Before Christmas to create a wonderfully spooky gingerbread display inside this classic attraction. 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 in amazement.
  • Disneys Grand Californian Hotel & Spa Disney artists, engineers and bakers teamed up on a gingerbread house that adds to the resort hotels festive lobby. With over 600 pounds of gingerbread and adorned with Hidden Mickeys, this grandly Californian gingerbread house is on display all season long.
  • Disney Cruise Line Aboard the four Disney Cruise Line ships, the chef competition is on! Bakery teams are challenged to create their own individual gingerbread houses for display throughout the holiday season in the atrium lobby of each ship. Taking weeks to conceptualize and construct, each features more than 600 pounds of gingerbread dough, 200-plus pounds of sugar and 5,000 gingerbread bricks.
  • Aulani A Disney Resort & Spa in Hawaii gets its gingerbread on with A Kakamora Holiday. This festive display includes a chocolate tree, a Moana-inspired gingerbread hut, chocolate sleigh and merrymaking Kakamoras celebrating with a tropical twist.

I just got home from the GCH and here are a couple more photos of the amazing gingerbread house there! The smell of gingerbread hits you as you walk into the GCH lobby and it's fantastic...
