The Grand Californian Gingerbread House is Made of Sugar and Spice & Everything Nice
The Gingerbread House at Disney’s Grand Californian Resort & Spa at the Disneyland Resort has to be seen to be believed! For starters, the house stands tall at 7 1/2 feet tall and 12 feet wide and decorated with some pretty sweet details. In addition, here is what it takes to bring this creation to life:
- 600 pounds of gingerbread
- 250 pounds of fondant
- 12 gallons of egg whites
- 3.5 gallons of lemon juice
- 1 pound of “pixie dust” glitter
- 16 bakers
- 6 craftsmen (carpenters and draftsmen)
- 2 electricians
- 1,225 cast member hours to design and craft
- 1,400 hours to bake edible elements
Wouldn’t it be great to see this Gingerbread House in person and then take home your own mini replica? Guess what? You can as there is a brand new option just for guests staying at one of the three Hotels of the Disneyland Resort: A Grand Gingerbread House Experience.
A Grand Gingerbread House Experience invites Guests to work with the extra talented pastry chefs who whipped up the Grand Californian’s Gingerbread House to make a mini replica for themselves. Guests taking advantage of this family-friendly event are even treated to hot cocoa and cookies!
A Grand Gingerbread House Experience is offered at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa from 2-3:30 p.m. on December 11, 20, 21, 22 and 23. For the workshop details, pricing information and to register for this experience, hotel guests may call Guest Services at 714-635-2300 (Option 5) or visit the Guest Services Desk.
