Grand Floridian

We are excited to announce that the Gingerbread House is going up at the Grand Floridian! Over the weekend, we spotted the “shell” of the house in the lobby at the Resort.

If you are not familiar with Gingerbread House, it might be one of the most magical things you can see in all of Walt Disney World during the holiday season. The life-size Gingerbread House is made with a classic gingerbread recipe from Austria. This gargantuan creation is 16 feet high and uses 1,050 pounds of honey, 800 pounds of flour – and it takes more than 400 hours just to bake the gingerbread! What’s even better, you can buy gingerbread, hot chocolate, and other holiday-themed treats directly from the house!

In addition to the treats, the Gingerbread House makes the lobby smell like the sweetest place on the planet. There is nothing like getting off the Monorail, walking into the Grand Floridian, and smelling all of that gingerbread goodness!

An official date of when the Gingerbread House will open has not been announced yet. Last year it was completed and open on November 16, 2016. Keep following along with us and we will let you know when it’s officially open!
