The Gingerbread Castle is Cooking Along Beautifully at Disney’s Contemporary Resort!
Mmm, can you smell that?
The arrival of the holiday season at Walt Disney World brings a lot of joy, but undeniably the coziest attraction is the warming gingerbread magic created at each of the resort hotels. From the iconic Grand Floridian house to the incredible carousel at the BoardWalk, there’s nothing quite as magical as a Disney gingerbread creation.
Wouldn’t you agree?
At the moment, the entire Walt Disney World Resort is rife with festive preparations, including the construction of many of these fan-favorite gingerbread structures. Today, one of our reporters decided to swing by Disney’s Contemporary Resort, to check out the unique gingerbread creation on display in the hotel lobby.
This is always one of our favorite seasonal sights, so come with us to check it out!
Well, as these photos show, the structure surely is coming along nicely!
I see trees, I see turrets, I see sparkle… it looks like it’s going to be gorgeous this year!
In case you’ve not read this awesome foodie guide to all the festive gingerbread experiences coming to Walt Disney World this season, allow us to enlighten you about this adorable gingerbread castle being built at the Contemporary!
Back for its twelfth year at the resort, the gingerbread display will once again feature a rendition of Cinderella Castle, stylized in honor of the iconic Disney legendary designer Mary Blair. Set to stand at an impressive 17 feet tall, the creation will consist of 612 pounds of sugar, 1,012 pounds of flour, 112 pounds of gingerbread spice, and over 4000 castle gingerbread bricks.
So far, we can see the first gingerbread elements have started to be placed on the structure, including the bricks of the castle and even an adorable platinum plaque, celebrating “100 years of wonder” for the company’s anniversary.
If you peer closely, you’ll also see some adorable hidden Mickeys in the design too, which we love!
While we count down to the castle’s completion (currently scheduled for November 10th,) we’ll be busy admiring this adorable ornament version of the Contemporary gingerbread creation, which we’ve already spotted available in stores.
