The Ultimate Gingerbread Houses (And More!)

Each year, several of the deluxe resorts at WDW go all out with gingerbread displays in their lobbies that put all other gingerbread houses to shame! It’s a great tradition that brings a beloved holiday tradition to Walt Disney World in a completely “plussed” way that Uncle Walt would be proud of!

This year, in addition to the larger-than-life displays, you can find 4 collector pins to commemorate the gingerbread installations.   Neat!

The Contemporary Resort’s display has gained a lot of press this year – it’s a Mary Blair inspired Frozen-themed display depicting Arendelle, Queen Elsa, Princess Anna, Kristoff and Olaf! As an added fun touch, hidden Olafs decorate the display providing a fun eye-spy challenge!

The Grand Floridian Resort and Spa has built a gigantic and elegant Victorian style gingerbread house. The Yacht Club Resort features a train display running through a gingerbread and candy village that’s all aglow with LED lights! The Beach Club Resort features a working carousel constructed from gingerbread, and the BoardWalk Inn has a Jersey shore inspired concession stand.

If all that hotel hopping has you a bit peckish, don’t fret! Each display has a concession area selling gingerbread cookies, ornaments, shingles, and gifts – as well as themed items like stolen, cake pops, oreo pops, or ice cream!
