Disney in Pictures: Victorian Gingerbread House at the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa

Every photo has a story.

One of the more well known Disney Christmas decorations found outside the gates of the Magic Kingdom is the victorian era inspired Gingerbread House at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa.

Walt Disney World pastry chefs use a classic gingerbread recipe from Austria to create their gingerbread delights.  The GF Gingerbread House is so large, you can purchase the Bake Shop’s mini gingerbread houses, ornaments and cookies from the merchandise shop set up right inside the house.  This snack-filled gift shop usually operates from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.  from mid-November through December 31st.

Picture this…the GF Gingerbread House is whipped up every year from scratch using 800 pounds of flour, 600 pounds of powdered sugar, 1,050 pounds of honey, and 180 pounds of apricot glaze.  It takes about 400 hours to bake everything, and by everything, I mean the upwards of 10,000 pieces it takes to complete the mouth-watering 16-foot-tall piece of culinary architecture.

Want to learn some neat tips for creating your own holiday gingerbread masterpiece?  Grand Floridian Gingerbread House decorating demos are held Monday through Saturday right out in front of the victorian Gingerbread House.  You’ll need to bring your Disney Rewards Visa,  because with all these sweet-treat options, you probably won’t walk away empty handed. You’ll want to bring your camera as well.

Thanks for stopping by for a photographical Disney ride!
