Guests are Buzzing About the Gingerbread House Displays around Disney Parks, Resorts, and Cruise Lines.

Guests are buzzing about the Gingerbread House Displays featured around select Disney World Resorts and Parks, Disneyland Resorts and Parks, as well as, select Disney Cruise Lines.  Each year guests are amazed with the unveiling of these elaborately themed Gingerbread house displays. When it comes to Disney food, Disney Chefs do not disappoint! The Gingerbread House Displays are no exception.  Chefs deck the halls, roofs, doorways, and windows of these life-size, magically smelling, to good to eat, beautifully decked houses.

Let’s take a tour for a closer look at these amazing houses, carousels, and other confections.  Also, most locations have savory sweets for sale so you can take a little piece of that Disney Gingerbread home.

Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa– 2018 marks the 20th anniversary of the Grand Floridians enormous Gingerbread House Display.  This house features a classic recipe from Austria, which inspires the ornaments, cookies, and a 14 foot tall house in the lobby.  This display also houses The Bake Shop, which is the perfect place to pick up holiday treats for the family back at home. In addition, The Grand Floridian holds Gingerbread house decorating demonstrations daily from December 1-25th.
