Disney's Contemporary Resort Gingerbread Display Expands to Include "Frozen Fever" Theme: Photos & Video

Hi everyone!

On the same day we visited Disney's Grand Floridian Gingerbread House for the grand opening, we headed over to Disney's Contemporary Resort to see what was new with the gingerbread display. Last year, Frozen took over, nestled inside of the background of it's a small world. Over the past 7 or 8 years, there have been several different themes, but this year expanded upon the Frozen concept by adding a Frozen Fever component. You can read our article from last year with information about how the Frozen theme came about. We always enjoy seeing the talent of the baking team here.

Disney's Grand Floridian Iconic Gingerbread House Opens for 17th Year; Mickey Mouse Helps Cut Ribbon

Hi everyone!

Disney's Grand Floridian Gingerbread House opened for a 17th season yesterday with a ribbon cutting ceremony featuring Mickey Mouse. Last year was the first year that a Disney character helped cut the ribbon, with Alice assisting Executive Pastry Chef Erich Herbitschek with the honors. We have been posting articles about the Grand Floridian Gingerbread House since 2008, and I think the house just keeps getting better. It is always fun to see which characters are chosen as artwork for the windows! Unfortunately, we missed the final dusting this year due to being in California - we had arrived back from Anaheim just hours before heading out for yesterday's ceremony. Disney's Grand Floridian Resort Gingerbread House is a constant through the years, not changing too much since it began 17 years ago. The gingerbread house will remain open through the end of the year.

Gaylord Palms Resort ICE! Featuring The Nutcracker Will Delight Young and Old Alike (Photos, Video)

Hi everyone!

Gaylord Palms ICE! is one of our holiday traditions each year. Even before we were invited to the media previews, we enjoyed this festive attraction and all that goes with it in the form of shows, decorations and the tree lighting ceremony. We never recommend just going through the exhibit and then going home - there is so much more to do, much of it at no extra cost.
