Amazing Gingerbread Structures at Walt Disney World

Welcome to this month's Blogorail Red Loop. Today we are sharing Christmas must dos at Disney.



Gingerbread.

Ginger. Flour. Cinnamon. Nutmeg.

Seems simple enough, right? However, when Disney gets involved, we go from simple to elaborate and magical.

Here are my 3 favorite Disney gingerbread structures at Walt Disney World:

3. Frozen Gingerbread at Disney's Contemporary Resort

Fans of Frozen, rejoice in this adorable structure!


Last year, I was thrilled to stumble upon this gem on the fourth floor of the Contemporary. Appearing right under neath Mary Blair's (famous Disney artist of "it's a small world" fame) famous multi-story work of art, this gingerbread structure includes "hidden Olafs", chocolate trees and your favorite Frozen characters.

While on your next Christmastime Disney trip, be sure to hop off the monorail at the Grand Canyon Concourse to view this piece of art.

2. Gingerbread (and Chocolate) Carousel at Disney's Beach Club Resort

An operational carousel made out of gingerbread, featuring chocolate horses! 

While Disney's Yacht Club Resort has a pretty cool holiday train and village, I can't help but to smile at this awesome carousel at Disney's Beach Club Resort. This life-size, spinning carousel is the result of: 
  • 36 pounds of honey
  • 96 pounds of flower
  • 100 pounds of icing
This is definitely a must-see during the holiday season.

1. Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa's Gingerbread Cottage


The smell hits you before you even see this amazing structure. 

Steam pours out of the roof of this spectacular 16 foot gingerbread cottage and kids young and old marvel over it each year. 

The best part about this cottage is that it isn't only for show: Disney Cast Members sell gingerbread "shingles" and other items from INSIDE this house. Throughout the holiday season, you can visit for decorating demonstrations in the lobby. 

Honorable Mentions
