We’ve got photos of the 2021 Grand Floridian gingerbread house, a Christmas staple at Walt Disney World.

Is it even Christmas at Disney World if you didn’t see the gingerbread house at the Grand Floridian? Much like the Holiday Cookie Stroll at EPCOT and the Christmas projects on Cinderella Castle (RIP Dream Lights), the Grand Floridian’s massive gingerbread house is a staple of the holidays at Disney World.

Believe it or not, the gingerbread house at the Grand Floridian is edible. Disney’s top-tier chefs use real ingredients to design the house each year. For 2021, the gingerbread house boasts the following ingredients:

  • 1,050 lbs of honey
  • 140 pints of egg whites
  • 600 lbs of powdered sugar
  • 700 lbs of chocolate
  • 800 lbs of flour
  • 35 lbs of spices

And, of course, because it’s Disney, the official ingredients list also includes “tons of creativity” and “Disney magic and pixie dust.”
