Giant Gingerbread House At Disney World

By
Real Estate Agent with Sailwinds Realty

Making Christmas vacation plans and heading for Disney World, Orlando. Want to see and maybe eat a piece of a giant gingerbread house. This gingerbread house is approx. 16ft high. Made fresh every year, it takes 1050 lbs of Honey, 800 lbs of flour, 600 lbs chocolate, 600 lbs powdered sugar, 180 lbs apricot glaze, 140 pints of egg whites, 35 lbs of spices.  See  the pictures below for the porch details.

 

Gingerbread House at Grand Floridian, Disneyworld, Orlando

The house is in the lobby of the Grand Floridian and causes lots of excitement for the kids.

And you can buy a roof shingle (gingerbread, of course) to chomp on while you look.

Very special and very worth seeing. Don't start counting carbs though!

The Christmas decorations go up at the last night of the Thanksgiving weekend. Believe it or not, they are almost completely finished in a day or two (all over the complex).

Toni: I know kids (and adults too) must be in awe when they see how large it is and how much attention to detail it has. Amazing!

Impressive photos of the Giant Gingerbread houses at Disney World, and yes that is allot of calories.

This has to be a very special place to visit anytime of the year, but especially before Christmas. It makes me want to keep the magic of Disnely alive forever.

Hi Toni, Disney Enterprises knows how to entertain. You see,  it is the Magic Kingdom where all dreams are possible. If you can dream it, they can create it. They specialize in making dreams come true for a day and the amazing part is they can last a lifetime.

Patricia Feager, MBA, GRI, Cert Negotiations Expert, Military Relo Prof  it is just magical at Christmas. We go every year and love it.

William Johnson you're right, the magic is there and it's fun to watch the kids see a 20 ft. Tree in a hotel lobby.  They are dazzled.

Hi Toni, we've been fortunate enough to have spent Thanksgiving at Disney World (camped at Fort Wilderness) a few times when our kids were little. It's amazing how they decorate for Christmas. Beautiful gingerbread house!
