‘Tis the Season for a Disney World Gingerbread Crawl!

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.
