Construction of this magnificent gingerbread house began on Nov 7th and they hope to be all finished by Nov 11th.  Guests are able to stroll by the house as the team of chefs at the Grand Floridian diligently and painstakingly create this amazing culinary masterpiece.  You might even get to say hello to one of the chefs and grab a gingerbread sample.

To create this house it takes an estimated over 400 hours of baking the gingerbread and approximately 160 hours of construction.    Can you believe that preparations actually began during the summer?
