Hey there, Disney fans! Ever wondered about those jaw-dropping gingerbread houses that pop up at Disney Resort Hotels during the festive season? Well, let’s dive into the magical world of Disney World Gingerbread displays, and unwrap some behind-the-scenes secrets.
Imagine this: It’s a sunny day in May, and while most of us are thinking about summer vacations, the talented chefs at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa are already in the holiday spirit. Yep, you read that right! They start whipping up the aromatic gingerbread dough a whopping seven months in advance. Talk about dedication!
From crafting individual pieces like cute Mickey-shaped cookies to the roof shingles, the process is meticulous. After baking these delightful pieces throughout the summer, they’re safely tucked away, waiting for their grand assembly in November. And guess what? Constructing the life-size gingerbread house is a three-day magical extravaganza!
This year, the gingerbread magic is spreading even further. Six Disney Resort Hotels are showcasing these edible masterpieces, with a brand-new addition at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort. I’m buzzing with excitement to see what the Disney crew has whipped up for us this time!
If you’re planning a visit, make sure to check out the Disney World gingerbread displays at the following spots:
- Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge
- Disney’s Beach Club Resort
- Disney’s BoardWalk Resort
- Disney’s Contemporary Resort
- Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
- And of course, the new kid on the block, Disney’s Yacht Club Resort.
So, next time you’re marveling at these gingerbread wonders, give a little nod to the hardworking chefs who started the magic way back in May. Happy holidays and happy gingerbread gazing!
