This includes plants in the front garden along with garlands done in a jewel toned EARidescent colorway.
The second level of the house features a balcony adorned with lots of snow-capped trees.
If you look at the shingles in the image above, you may even notice a Hidden Mickey.
Here’s a closer look at the EARidescent decorations that line the rooftops and garlands.
Lighting in the eaves give the entire creation a whimsical glow.
You don’t really get a sense of the real grandeur of this creation until you are there in person!
Definitely make popping over to Disney’s Grand Floridian a priority during your holiday visit.
Next we move around to the side of the gingerbread house where the shop will be.
As you can see, a big 50th Anniversary emblem now sits above the shop windows.
There’s also a video screen on the right side that features a video of the entire process of creating and making this year’s house.
Let’s move closer so you can get a look at the EARidescent details.
Notice the way that the all of the colors in the greenery perfectly ties in with the 50th Anniversary logo.
