Recently, we released our latest e-Book — The DFB Guide to the Walt Disney World® Holidays 2012 — and today we’re going to share one of our favorite parts of it with you: our DFB Gingerbread Crawl!
If you’ve been with us for a while, you know that we love food “crawls”: entertaining adventures that are perfect for family and friends to tackle together! And if you’ve treated yourself to a solo getaway, crawls are a fun diversion to enjoy on your own as well.
Craving more crawls? We have three other holiday crawls through Walt Disney World in the guide, along with 230 pages of holiday tips and even more bonus items! Let’s get started…
Chocolate Iced Gingerbread Shingle
Start out your gingerbread adventure by taking the monorail to the Grand Floridian resort, where the aromatic, life-sized gingerbread house store can be found on the first floor of the grandiose lobby.
Go ahead and stop to take pictures. This holiday display is gorgeous! Line up at the kiosk to grab a seasonal classic — gingerbread shingles! Choose one that’s plain or covered in scrumptious chocolate. The gingerbread is made from an Austrian recipe.
While here, take part in a gingerbread decorating demo or pose for a holiday photo in front of the life-size gingerbread house.
Proceed to the bus depot for your journey to Disney’s Hollywood Studios next. Your destination is none other than the Starring Rolls Cafe — well known for over-the-top cupcakes, including the seasonal gingerbread cupcake with cream cheese icing. This year’s version features a Santa Mickey hat!
Gingerbread Hot Cocoa
Next up, you’ll stay in Disney’s Hollywood Studios and stroll over to the Streets of America. Head to the Newsstand to pick up some flavored hot cocoa!
You’ll have your choice of Hazelnut or Gingerbread, but you know which one we recommend for this particular crawl.
Gingerbread Snowflake Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich
In 2011, you could get one made with holiday sprinkle cookies, or these fun gingerbread snowflake cookies!
Gingerbread Man Cookie
The grand finale includes viewing Epcot’s IllumiNations fireworks while snacking on a gingerbread man cookie. Or, go ahead and take your cookie back to the hotel for a late night snack.
From your last stop, head to the American Adventure pavilion in World Showcase where you’ll find Santa’s Bakeshop. It’s a life-size gingerbread house kiosk selling seasonal goodies!
Will You Crawl?
We want to hear from you — let us know if you plan to take this gingerbread crawl! And don’t forget — we’re all for adding in your own gingerbread snacks as you discover them!
All of our crawls are meant to serve as guides to get you exploring all Walt Disney World has to offer. Veer from the crawl and make your own discoveries too!
There are more crawls, bonus items, and over 230 pages of holiday tips in the new DFB Guide to the Walt Disney World® Holidays 2012. The colorful photos are festive too! Hurry — we’ve extended our Launch sale for a limited time! Use code HOLIDAY for $2 off your guide.
