Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa is celebrating their 19th anniversary of its famous life-sized gingerbread house. You can find this delicious creation in their main lobby. Today we visited the Grand Floridian’s special Gingerbread House Signing Event to check out the new limited edition trading pin and say hi to Executive Pastry Chef Erich Herbitschek.

This event will also be held November 25th and December 2nd from 1 pm to 2 pm in case you missed it today.

Each year Executive Pastry Chef Erich Herbitschek leads his pastry team working on the gingerbread house. They spend over 400 hours baking and 160 hours constructing and decorating! You can see a very cool time-lapse video of its construction here.

Chef Erich was available today to sign the new limited edition trading pins and cookbooks now available.

Other Grand Floridian Limited Edition pins were also available. They were priced at $14.99.

One of the other amazing things we had to check out today was The Bake Shop also located at the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa lobby.

Executive Pastry Chef Erich Herbitschek and his team have been hard at work creating gingerbread ornaments, cookies, and gingerbread house kits.

All of these yummy treats were made using a classic gingerbread recipe from Austria.
