The Disney100 gingerbread castle at Disney’s Contemporary Resort is now open and various sweet treats are available for purchase.
Disney100 Gingerbread Castle at Disney’s Contemporary Resort
From the Monorail station, a sign directs guests to the gingerbread display.
Disney’s Contemporary Resort has featured a gingerbread castle for several years now. In years past, it has had “Cinderella” or “Frozen” theming. Last year, it honored the 50th anniversary of Magic Kingdom.
This year’s display is almost identical to the 50th anniversary version, but with platinum accents instead of gold.
There are standees of the Mickey and Minnie “Fab 50” statues from Magic Kingdom, but now in platinum and with Disney 100 Years of Wonder plaques on their bases.
The blue turrets of the gingerbread Cinderella Castle are wrapped in platinum ribbon.
There are also tiny silver hidden Mickeys all over the display. We won’t spoil their locations, but you should be able to spot some in these photos.
The castle has a Disney100 Years of Wonder plaque above its doorway, similar to the one that was on Sleeping Beauty Castle in Disneyland.
Behind the castle is a white version of the “it’s a small world” façade, with blue on the smiling face and clock.
The top of the “it’s a small world” façade is lined with lights. The tallest castle turret is also gold.
Along the front of the display’s base are large silver Mickey heads. These aren’t the hidden Mickeys, technically.
Trees with silver stars on top and fireworks on their branches are to the sides of the castle.
A platinum and purple sign to the side has information about the gingerbread display.
There are 12 hidden Mickeys in honor of the display’s 12th year. There is also one hidden five-legged goat, in honor of Mary Blair’s famous artwork (see below). The display was assembled in 12 days using over 4,000 castle gingerbread bricks.
