Gingerbread Washington D.C. Monument Display Returns to Epcot for Sixth Year

Hi everyone!

For the sixth year, Epcot has offered a Washington D.C. gingerbread display in the American Adventure. This year it expanded to also include not only the United States Capitol, Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial, but now it also has a Jefferson Memorial in gingerbread. Keep reading for photos!

Epcot International Festival of the Holidays runs through December 30th, 2019.

Inside the rotunda of the American Adventure, you can find not only the Voices of Liberty as Dickens Carolers at set times each day, but this beautiful Washington D.C. gingerbread display. It has expanded a little each year since it debuted in 2014.

From this angle, you can see the United States Capitol, Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial.

The Lincoln Memorial.

New this year is the Jefferson Memorial.

The buildings are made from 160 pounds of gingerbread, 30 pounds of royal icing, 40 pounds of modeling chocolate, 8 hidden Mickeys and a lot of pixie dust.

There are small lights on the U.S. Capitol.

There are a lot of festive additions to the buildings.

Mickey sits atop, where the Statue of Freedom would be on the real building.

And a couple of more photos.

It is worth going to the American Adventure to see the gingerbread display but it’s best to coincide with the Voices of Liberty – the group has been here since the park opened and seeing them as Dickens Carolers is always a special treat.

We will continue with more holidays at Walt Disney World (and Disneyland) this month!
