Progress on the Gingerbread House at the Grand Floridian
Walt Disney World is pulling out all the stops with Christmas decorations this year. But, there are few Christmas decorations as iconic like the life-size gingerbread house at the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.
If you haven’t been following along, click here to see where this year’s build began.
MickeyBlog stopped by the Grand Floridian today to see further updates on the awe-inspiring structure. It’s fascinating to watch it get built, one gingerbread shingle at a time.
Is it just me or does Disney’s gingerbread house feel more and more magical each year? Maybe it’s nostalgia.
It’s astounding that this build is so big and elaborate that it requires scaffolding to complete! I am in awe!
All of the white that you see in these images will soon be fully covered in real gingerbread shingles and siding. You can see in the image below the recipe they use to make all the cookies.
Disney’s storybook gingerbread house is made with tons of Disney magic, Pixie dust, and creativity.
While some cast members are working feverishly on the construction of the house others are handing out yummy samples of gingerbread for onlookers to try.
Gingerbread House Build
Preparations for the house starts well before the Christmas season. However, the build portion takes less than a week. MickeyBlog found out that the entire build should be complete in a matter of only a few more days.
Once all the gingerbread is in place, the cast members begin work on the elaborate and decorative details to complete the festive holiday look.
When you stop by to see the completed gingerbread house for yourself, don’t forget to purchase a delicious gingerbread treat for yourself and a friend.
Look at the stacks upon stacks of gingerbread waiting to be put in place. We will continue to track the gingerbread house progress until it’s completed so be sure to follow along. The Disney cast members are working around the clock!
