Disney Magic Gingerbread House

The house is on one side of the Magic’s atrium, with a short white fence around it to keep guests from nibbling on the display. The fence is decorated with garlands and there are pots of poinsettias in the gingerbread house’s garden.

A nearby sign says the gingerbread house took approximately 220 hours to develop and complete. The ship’s carpenters created the framework while the pastry and bakery team baked gingerbread cookies. The house is made of 500 pounds of gingerbread dough, 2,500 gingerbread bricks on the walls, an additional 1,500 gingerbread bricks on the roof, and 120 pounds of icing sugar.
