Disney celebrates the season in many different ways but the highlights this year include the gingerbread house at the Grand Floridian and the gingerbread carousel at the Beach Club.
The carousel was Lilo & Stitch themed. There are over 18 hidden Mickeys on the display. The cool thing about this display is that multiple teams work on it. Everyone from landscaping to engineering helps out with this massive candy structure.
The ingredients include:
- 36 pounds of honey
- 96 pounds of bread flour
- 100 pints of eggs
- 10 pounds of spices
- 10 quarts of simple syrup
- 150 pounds of icing
- 50 pounds of dark chocolate
- 50 pounds of modeling chocolate
- 200 gum paste flowers
The Gingerbread house at the Grand Floridian is amazing. The chefs spend over 400 hours baking the gingerbread and over 160 hours constructing and decorating the house. And if the house wasn’t enough it is actually a small shop where people can buy baked goods. You can buy a gingerbread shingle to enjoy.
