Take A Look At The Tasty Gingerbread House At Disney’s Contemporary Resort
Walt Disney World shines brightly during the holiday season for so many reasons. The attention to detail in all of their holiday décor is beyond perfection. From the towering Christmas trees and bushy garland, to the ‘ice’ on Cinderella Castle, Christmas at Disney is totally magical! One of my favorite things to do is head to the deluxe resorts and check out their amazing gingerbread houses. I’m always in awe of not only the detail and care given to each one, but the sheer size is mind blowing!
Take a look at Disney’s Contemporary Resort’s gingerbread house this year. It is truly a happily ever after creation!
