This year, the Mary Blair-inspired display at Disney’s Contemporary Resort will be inspired by the 100th anniversary celebration. This is the display’s 12th year. It was designed by Walt Disney Imagineering and created by a team led by Pastry Chef Jeff Barnes.

The display will stand over 17 feet tall with 612 pounds of sugar, 1012 pounds of flour, 112 pounds of gingerbread spice, over 4000 castle gingerbread bricks, and 12 sprinklings of magical pixie dust. Keep your eyes peeled for the 12 hidden five-legged goats.

It can be found on the fourth floor from November 10 through January 6.

It’s expected to be similar to last year’s 50th anniversary display, as pictured below.
