The MASSIVE Grand Floridian Gingerbread House Is NOW OPEN in Disney World!

There are so many ways to celebrate the holiday season in Disney World — and not all of them require a ticket.

Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party

If you have the budget, you can check out all the decorations inside each Disney Park, or even buy a ticket for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, but you can also enjoy some of the most iconic holiday displays inside Disney World hotels! One such display is now officially open and we’re taking you with us to check it out.

The life-size gingerbread house in Disney’s Grand Floridian Hotel & Spa is officially OPEN! You can find it in the lobby of the Grand Floridan this holiday season. Also, from 9:30AM to 9PM, you can shop for some special treats!

The Gingerbread House is OPEN!

This gingerbread house truly is enormous, and it’s quite a sight! If you have time to stop by Grand Floridian during your holiday visit, it’s totally worth it.

It takes a while to construct the gingerbread house and this season we observed Cast Members painstakingly applying all the gingerbread shingles and other tiny details. Did you know that this house requires 1,050 pounds of honey??

So beautiful

Disney World is still celebrating its 50th anniversary, so there are lots of EARidescent details to see (just like last year). Can you find the hidden Mickey?

You can spot characters on the gingerbread house too, like Winnie the Pooh

Winnie the Pooh!

…and Belle and the Beast!

Santa is also present, of course. We love the teeny tiny hanging ornaments in the windows!

Hi, Santa!

There are lots of sweet treats to try too, but how do you decide which ones to get?? We saw lots of people in line trying to make that same decision. Do you want one gingerbread cookie or two (or three?)??

You can also go big with a Grand Gift Box for $60 or even get the 50th Gingerbread House for $85. Click here to see what we thought of some of the treats!

So many treats!

The gingerbread house treats shop will be open every day from 9:30AM to 9PM, and if you’re visiting Disney World this holiday season it might be worth it to stop by and check it out! Note that you can still see the gingerbread house outside of those hours — you just can’t shop for treats.

So pretty

Remember that the Grand Floridian is a short Monorail ride away from Magic Kingdom, and stopping by can be a great opportunity to take a break from a busy park day. If you keep riding the Monorail, you can also catch the gingerbread display at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, and if you’re visiting EPCOT, you can also take a short walk to Disney’s Beach Club for the gingerbread carousel.
