The 20th Anniversary edition of the annual Beach Club Resort Holiday gingerbread carousel has finally arrived. Guests are greeted with the large chocolate and gingerbread creation when they enter the lobby for the Beach Club Resort. The theme of this year’s creation is Peter Pan. As always, it is a popular photo stop for resort guests and those just passing through.

On the back side of the carousel is a large posterboard that features images from the Gingerbread Carousel’s 20-year history at the resort.

There are four horses on the carousel itself, representing Peter Pan, Mr. Smee, Wendy, and Tinkerbell, while an additional Captain Hook themed horse stands off to the side.

Two different chocolate-designed signs inform guests of both the recipe required for creating this year’s carousel, and to remember to visit the Yacht Club’s miniature holiday train set, which has not yet been set up. The details on the carousel depict various Peter Pan characters, as well as a cityscape of London.

Behind the carousel along the back wall is the Beach Club’s temporary bar and store for the gingerbread carousel.

Guests can purchase various alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages from the bar section on the left.

On the ride side, you will find the Gingerbread Carousel store.

These hot cocoa mugs are available and retail for $24.99. They feature the Beach Club Resort logo on one side and Minnie Mouse with the 20th Anniversary logo on the other.

This ornament is also available for $14.99

Various snacks and treats are available here. The paint your own cookie retails for $11. The bag of assorted cookies retails for $9.99, while the bag of peppermint bark retails for $10. The Oreo Pops feature three different designs, with either Peter Pan, Tinkerbell, or Captain Hook, and retail for $4.50 each. Finally, the gingerbread shingles retail for $6.50

The limited edition pin for the Gingerbread Carousel is also available, retailing for $17.99. It is limited edition of 2,000.

Is anyone from WDWNT going to go to the Yacht Club and show pictures of the miniature village and train set to those that want to see it but are not there?
