Amorette's Patisserie is offering up a Disney Springs themed gingerbread display for the holidays this year, featuring familiar restaurants and icons such as Amorette's, Characters in Flight and the House of Blues water tower. This is one of many gingerbread and chocolate holiday displays at Walt Disney World for 2017. Check out our photos below of this gingerbread creation!
The Walt Disney World Boardwalk Resort created a version of itself for its 2017 Gingerbread Display - at least the restaurants of the resort. This is at least the 5th major change in the display since I started photographing it in 2007. There used to be a gingerbread fireplace with characters including Donald, Daisy, Stitch, Chip and Dale (depending on the year as to which characters there were). The last few years have seen a variety of different ideas, in 2016 there were smaller houses. This display was much more than I expected for 2017, a nice suprise.
Disney's Yacht Club holiday train display went up a little over a week ago, at about the same time as Disney's Beach Club Carousel. I think I missed photographing it last year, the display may have gone up a little later than usual. This year we've shared Disney's Grand Floridian Gingerbread House, Disney's Contemporary Resort Gingerbread Cinderella Castle, and Disney's Beach Club Lilo & Stitch themed Carousel - and there will be much more coming. Here is a look at the train display, the train wasn't running at the time we were there.
Disney's Beach Club Resort Gingerbread Carousel is back for its 18th year with a Lilo and Stitch theme for 2017! It is interesting to see Stitch here, he was part of the Walt Disney World Boardwalk display a number of years ago when the resort had one. Both Lilo and Stitch are molded figures. Each year is a little different with the carousel. This year also brought a new topper to the carousel in the form of Scrump, replacing Tinker Bell - she had topped the carousel almost every year since I started photographing it in 2007. Also for 2017, there are no smaller character figures under the horses and even the horse names aren't themed in the same way they have been. For example, instead of names like Snowflake or Flurry (where the horse would be then adorned with snowflakes), the first photo here is named Dutchess - and it has the snowflakes, even without the holiday name. Last year, the horses had character names and themes, like Mickey Mouse and Goofy.
Disney's Contemporary Resort has a Cinderella themed gingerbread display this year, the fourth different display I have photographed at the resort since starting Mousesteps. Back in 2008, the theme was Pinocchio and it was completely different than anything since then. A Mary Blair themed gingerbread confection soon followed, and then Frozen and now Cinderella Castle with smaller Cinderella and Prince Charming gingerbread figures. The last three themes have had a lot of similarities. The display is in a different location and can be easy to miss - it is next to Fantasia Market and not up against the Mary Blair mural. This year, some favorite gingerbread and other types of treats are back but also there are a few new items. Here is a look at the display with more information, it is 18 feet tall and designed by Pastry Chef Jeff Barnes and his team. This is the second display we've visited, we have Disney's Grand Floridian Gingerbread House with the grand opening celebration here.
