Walt Disney World shared this timelapse video of Disney’s Grand Floridian Gingerbread House being constructed! I visited the house quite a bit during construction and it is fun to see the timelapse version. You can watch as the house is put together, shingles added, and decorations put on the house.
Disney says, The life-sized gingerbread house at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is made with more than 10,000 individual gingerbread shingles. Disney bakers spend more than 500 hours baking the gingerbread and another 480 hours building and decorating the house.
Disney’s Grand Floridian Gingerbread House is made with 1,050 pounds of honey, 700 pounds of chocolate, 600 pounds of sugar, 35 pounds of spices and 800 pounds of flour.
Then house is not only beautiful to look at, but serves as a shop that sells delicious treats. The treats include shingles with the recipe used for Disney’s Grand Floridian Gingerbread House, and many other items too. One of my favorite items to purchase is the stollen bread.
