It looks like the gingerbread house at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa will open this weekend as it was near completion when we visited the lobby on Thursday. When we stopped by just a few days ago, the house was little more than a blank frame.
Gingerbread House Construction
Every year, the gingerbread house at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort resembles a Victorian-style house and is located in the main lobby of the resort. Guests will be able to purchase gingerbread treats and other sweets from the gingerbread house when it opens in November.
Most, if not all, of the house’s gingerbread shingles and siding pieces have been installed. These pieces are secured with icing.
Red and silver decorations line the house’s rooves and windows.
There are tiny trees staged on tables next to the gingerbread house.
A few trees had already been placed on the house’s balcony. More pieces of gingerbread were on trays.
A lift vehicle nearby was likely used to add shingles to the very top of the gingerbread house.
A large Santa figure now sits on the house.
There are candy canes and snowflakes stuck to the walls.
The TV mounted on the side of the gingerbread house usually plays video about its construction.
More props will be added to the house before it opens.
The sweets shop is usually open from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. daily.
The Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort lobby will be remodeled next year. The project was delayed and then officially pushed to 2024 so as not to interfere with the gingerbread house display.
Disney’s Yacht Club Resort will have a gingerbread display for the first time this year, either in place of or in addition to its usual train village. There will also be gingerbread displays at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, Disney’s Beach Club Resort, Disney’s BoardWalk Resort, and Disney’s Contemporary Resort, which have all had them in years past.
Will you be visiting all the gingerbread displays this year? Let us know in the comments.
