Work Underway on Holiday Gingerbread House at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort

The holiday season has arrived at Walt Disney World in the form of the annual holiday gingerbread house at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa! Every year a life-size gingerbread house is constructed in the lobby that cast members sell holiday treats and gingerbread shingles from. We visited the resort recently and saw the work being done on the gingerbread house.

This year the gingerbread house has a red and silver color scheme. The crew working on the house is using ladders and even a crane to construct the sweet building. The gingerbread house will open to guests on November 8, 2023. Guests will be able to purchase house-made gingerbread houses, gingerbread ornaments, and other treats.

We took a closer look at the fabulous details on the gingerbread house. The windows feature hidden Mickey wreaths on the shutters and different Disney characters above the window frames. We saw Ariel, Tiana, and Mickey & Minnie. Red and silver poinsettias adorn the windows, porch, house trim, and a lot of the roof. We also saw some nutcrackers on the porch and Santa on one corner of the house.


Near the house you’ll see a gingerbread man sign telling guests about the ingredients that go into making the life-size gingerbread house. The ingredients include:

  • 1050 pounds honey
  • 140 pints egg whites
  • 600 pounds powdered sugar
  • 700 pounds chocolate
  • 800 pounds flour
  • 35 pounds spices
  • Tons of creativity
  • Disney magic and pixie dust

Do you make a point to see the gingerbread creations at the Disney World resorts during the holidays?
