Disney’s Beach Club Resort Gingerbread Carousel to be Inspired by DuckTales for 2023 Holiday Season

Hi everyone!

The Disney Parks Blog has announced that Disney’s Beach Club Resort Gingerbread Carousel will be inspired this year by DuckTales, with horses themed after Donald Duck and his nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie. We will post about it when Disney’s Beach Club Resort Gingerbread Carousel is displayed! Each year, the horses have themes, it will be fun to see what the DuckTales theme looks like here.

The Disney Parks Blog also talks about the new Lighthouse creation coming to Disney’s Yacht Club Resort. Here is information about both below the photos from a longer article about gingerbread displays across Walt Disney World.
