PHOTOS: New Build-Your-Own Gingerbread Contemporary Resort Kit (with Chocolate Monorail) Debuts at Walt Disney World

Walt Disney World may have canceled its annual tradition of gingerbread house displays across its resorts, but you can bring the holiday spirit home with new build-your-own gingerbread house kits at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. This is no ordinary gingerbread house, this is the resort itself!

Designed to look like the resort, the kit comes with everything you need to put your own spin on the classic hotel, including a white chocolate monorail!

Santa Claus, decked out in more casual winter garb, sits on the roof ready to greet guests and ring in the holiday spirit.

We found this holiday treat available at the Contempo Cafe for $35. Mobile ordering is not available for the kit, so guests must go in and order it at a register.

It doesn’t look like the Contemporary. It looks like two generic cookie slabs with icing and candy haphazardly applied.

I saw this kit at the Contempo Cafe last month and decided I ciuld do better – si I bought two (2) Hershey’s Chocolate cookie house kits at “Five Below”, ‘modified them’ so I could shape a Contemporary Resort from the four roof panels, used the house fronts (modified) for the inner support ribs, the side panels for the flat roof and the bases for, well, the base. Some Mickey Icon cutouts and this plexiglas for the ends , a bit of icing and my result looks a lot more true-to-scale.
