It won’t be long until we see gingerbread displays appearing at Walt Disney World Deluxe resorts. This year, there will be a new location as well – Disney’s Yacht Club Resort. I don’t know if that means the annual train display won’t appear? We will see in the coming weeks.
Read below for more information on the Walt Disney World gingerbread displays from Disney. We will be sharing about each of the displays as they are installed!

Comfort & Joy: Gingerbread Galore at Disney Resort Hotels
Guests often gaze in fascination at the larger-than-life gingerbread displays that appear each holiday season at Disney Resort Hotels. Culinary teams spend up to seven months planning and building the displays. For example, the culinary team at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa starts mixing fragrant dough in May, letting it cure a full two months before it is baked. Individual shapes, from shingles to Mickey cookies, are baked and decorated throughout the summer and then stored for “construction” in November. The house itself takes three days to build.
This year, guests will once again be able to enjoy the stunning works of culinary art – including a new display – in six resort locations:
- Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge
- Disney’s Beach Club Resort
- Disney’s BoardWalk Resort
- Disney’s Contemporary Resort
- Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
- Disney’s Yacht Club Resort (featuring a new display)
