One of the highlights for most Walt Disney World holiday-goers is checking out the amazing gingerbread creations on offer at a handful of Disney’s Deluxe Resorts. Guests visiting over the next week will be pleased to know that these awe-inspiring edible creations are starting to make an appearance.
Here’s where you’ll find them.
Gingerbread Holiday Castle at Disney’s Contemporary Resort – Found in the Grand Canyon Concourse on the fourth floor of the Contemporary is this Mary Blair-inspired Frozen-themed work of art. You’ll see Elsa, Anna and Olaf nestled among the sugary snowflakes, chocolate trees and gingerbread shingles that making up this holiday delight.
Life-sized Gingerbread House at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort – When guests think about Disney’s amazing gingerbread creations, the artistry on offer over at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa is usually the first thing that comes to mind. Created using a a traditional Austrian gingerbread recipe this 16 ft. creation is functional as well and hosts a lovely little seasonal shop where guests can feast on lovely holiday delicacies including gingerbread shingles (thankfully not taken from the house itself.) The house will be officially open for business starting on November 23rd. There are also gingerbread making demonstrations taking place at the resort Monday-Saturdays. Lisette was able to get some great photos, video and information about this display already. Check out her article here.
Gingerbread Carousel at Disney’s Beach Club Resort – 96 lbs of flour, 100 lbs of icing and 36 lbs of honey went into making this charming creation. A favorite with families at the Yacht and Beach Club, the carousel is also host to 17 hidden Mickeys. See if you can find them all.
Disney’s Boardwalk Inn, will also play host this year to a Gingerbread Academy. Visitors, working under the tutelage of one of Disney’s expert gingerbread craftsman, will receive a kit and will be guided through the process of creating their own edible works of art. The cost to attend this event is $125 for up to four guests. Those who worry about the logistics of taking their gingerbread houses home with them at the end of their stay can instead opt to create gingerbread ornaments at a cost of $8.95 per decoration (all proceeds from the ornaments will go to Give Kids the World) or work alongside one of Disney’s esteemed pastry chefs to decorate holiday cupcakes which will set guests back $10.95 per person. Hot chocolate or cider will be available to all participants.
For those not planning on visiting the resorts, there’s also opportunities to see a few gingerbread houses at the theme parks. Over at Epcot’s American Pavilion, guests will also be able to view a gingerbread re-creation of the U.S. Capitol Building as well as the Lincoln Memorial starting on November 25th.
Guests visiting Animal Kingdom will want to book their dining reservations at Tusker House if only to witness the amazing 3 ft. gingerbread replication of an African Marketplace that is reportedly covered in 25lbs of dark chocolate.
