Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge debuted a baby giraffe created from gingerbread.


This “ginger-affe” is the size of a baby giraffe and can be found in the back of the Jambo House lobby.


A hidden mickey can be found behind the ear of the “ginger-affe.”


The Mara is offering two new holiday exclusive treats. A “ginger-affe” cookie is above and the Chocolate and Peppermint Cookie Sandwich is below. We recommend both!
