The brand-new gingerbread lighthouse is now complete at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort. This is the first time the resort has had its own gingerbread display, and it’s in addition to the annual miniature Christmas village.
The lighthouse is inspired by the lighthouse outside the resort on Crescent Lake.
The gingerbread display has a working light inside that spins.
Tiny Christmas wreaths with red berries and bows are attached to the walls of the lighthouse.
It sits behind a white fence decorated with red velvet bows in the Yacht Club lobby, right in front of some of the windows.
A sign created from fondant and icing reads:
This holiday season, The Yacht Club has a new addition – The Gingerbread Lighthouse! Chef Michael and the Bakery Team have created a quarter scale replica of our very own lighthouse on Crescent Lake.
Enjoy our newest tradition and Happy Holidays!
The Christmas village with a working miniature train is in front of the gingerbread lighthouse and also behind a white fence.
The village is mostly the same as it has been in previous years, but with new Disney100 decorations.
There are Disney100 medallions and purple banners on one of the train cars.
Medallions and banners are also throughout the Disney village and on the stone bridge.
The train only runs for two hours at a time on the following schedule:
- 6 a.m. – 8 a.m.
- 9 a.m. – 11 a.m.
- 12 p.m. – 2 p.m.
- 3 p.m. – 5 p.m.
- 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.
- 9 p.m. – 11 p.m.
