Ahh, the age old question. “Can there be Christmas without gingerbread?” In a word: absolutely NOT. Gingerbread tastes AND smells AMAZING. And it certainly wouldn’t be Christmas without these incredible Disney Gingerbread Displays! This year, gingerbread even returns to Disney’s Contemporary Resort! Not to mention the life-sized baby zebra gingerbread headed to the Jambo House at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. So here is what is known about 2022!

The pastry team works more than 20 days to create this moving, 300-pound Haunted Mansion gingerbread house. And of course, it’s perfectly themed to fit right into Jack Skellington’s annual holiday takeover at the Mansion!

If you can wait until November 14 (which is, admittedly, only a week away at this point), you don’t want to miss Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. There, you’ll find the 7′ x 12′ edible replica of this gloriously grand hotel! It contains more than 600 pounds of both gingerbread and powdered sugar. Not to mention 250 pounds of fondant. And all finished up with Disney characters, including 25 Hidden Mickeys!
