Holiday Gingerbread House Returns to Grand Californian Hotel

Disney’s Grand Californian Resort & Spa at the Disneyland Resort is all decked out for the holidays! The holiday gingerbread house has also returned to the lobby for the special season.

Every year, the culinary team at Disney’s Grand Californian creates a gingerbread house in the shape of the hotel! This year, the house looks like it’s made from all kinds of sweets and treats. There are cupcake trees in the front, the walkway is lined with chocolate chip cookies, cinnamon rolls line the fireplace, dipped pretzel rods hold up the roof, and so much more!

Chip and Dale can be seen decorating one of the Christmas trees in the front of the gingerbread house. A wreath and stockings hang above the fireplace.

The back of the house is decorated as well! Another wreath hangs on the back and a pile of treats is waiting for Santa from Chip & Dale.


Next to the Grand Gingerbread House is a sign detailing the house and sharing some fun facts. The structure measures 7 feet tall and 12 feet wide and the wooden infrastructure weighs 700 pounds! There are also 25 hidden Mickeys you can find throughout the design.

The recipe for the gingerbread house is as follows:

  • 600 pounds gingerbread
  • 600 pounds powdered sugar
  • 250 pounds fondant
  • 1152 eggs
  • 1 pound glitter (pixie dust)

Be sure to stop by Disney’s Grand Californian to see the gingerbread house this holiday season!
