Seriously, the amazing Cast Members/cookie engineers/pastry chefs/magicians have outdone themselves again! The chimney is ready for Santa, the shingles are delightfully snowy, and the attention to detail is everywhere.

There’s even a tiny, adorable GINGERBREAD village on the porch of the gingerbread house. Why not?

You won’t want to miss this perennial favorite. We call him Hangry Santa because we can only assume he looks so ornery because he hasn’t had a gingerbread cookie yet.

There’s a handy paper menu so you can scope our your choices before you step up to the counter. Note that there are several gluten-free options for those with allergies, plus two columns of Disney Dining Plan-eligible snacks.

    How long is this up for? We are coming the beginning of January and wondered if it would still be there?

    This is awesome! Me and my fiancé are getting married at Disney @ the grand Floridian, we’re heading there tomorrow for our food tasting so will definitely have to pop along and check this out! ☺️

    Debbie, you can find gingerbread displays and treats at Boardwalk Inn, Yacht and Beach Club, and the Contemporary. Other resorts do have seasonal treats (we’ll have a peek of All-Star treats soon — but the holiday sweets are everywhere!).

  5. DFB Sarah says

    Rachael, the houses are usually up through the first week or two of January, so hopefully you’ll get to see it!
