Disney Parks gingerbread houses are a whimsical, holiday treat


While your gingerbread house might be more simplistic, Disney Parks gingerbread houses are the epitome of holiday cheer. Have you seen these edible works of art?

The annual Disney Parks gingerbread houses are a popular attraction for Disney fans. From Walt Disney World Resorts to Disneyland and even the Disney Cruise Line, the classic holiday tradition is a visual feast for young and old. While you can take a look, don’t even try to sneak a piece of candy off these edible creations.

From hidden Mickeys to whimsical designs, the gingerbread houses capture both the wonder and magic of the holidays and Disney. While these holiday treats may not grace your own home, you can bring a few ideas into your own holiday traditions.

The most stunning design is always the Grand Floridian Gingerbread House. From the 14-foot display to the freshly made baked treats, the aroma that fills the lobby is irresistible. Even Santa wants to stay inside this magical display.

Several of the Disney World Resorts have their own interpretations of gingerbread houses. From the gingerbread carousel at Disney’s Beach Club Resort to the Gingerbread Castle at the Contemporary Resort, each one is a sight to see. For some Disney fans, they plan trips to all the resorts just to see the annual tradition.

Disneyland joins the holiday traditions as well. A new display celebrates the 50th anniversary of Haunted Mansion. While not necessarily the classic display, this Haunted Mansion Holiday is definitely Jack Skellington approved.

With 15 different gingerbread cookies which represent the mansions guests, you won’t know where to look first. This holiday display shows that you can blend your favorite traditions with your favorite characters, even if they aren’t necessarily holiday themed.

Disney Parks aren’t the only locations that join in the Disney gingerbread houses traditions. The Disney Cruise Line pastry chefs have an annual competition to see which ship can create the most impressive gingerbread house.

Located in the ships’ atriums, the displays are breathtaking. After being constructed, they are moved onto the ships. With 5,000 gingerbread bricks and over 200 pounds of sugar, these massive displays are definitely a sight to behold.

While a trip to Disney Parks over the holiday season is filled with magic and wonder, don’t forget to enjoy the Disney Parks gingerbread houses. They are a lovely reminder that a little sugar, water and flour can create a magical memory.
