Is there a more beautiful hotel at Christmastime than Grand Floridian? We don’t think so. From its Victorian theming to its massive Christmas tree, this resort truly shines at Christmas. Every year this resort is home to a life-size Gingerbread House that is much more than decor,  it’s a baked goods shop as well! This year the resort is getting into Walt Disney World’s 50th-anniversary celebration by serving up EARidescent holiday goodies. Stop by the Gingerbread House and pick up yummies like: 

  • Freshly baked, homemade items, such as Gingerbread Mickeys and Shingles, Stollen Bread, Brownie Christmas Tree, and Chocolate Peppermint Bark 
  • House-made Gingerbread Ornaments and Gingerbread Houses  
  • New items like the Gingerbread Latte Whoopie Pie and Hot Cocoa Bombs 
  • Assorted Gingerbread Cookie Bags, Marshmallow Pops, and Caramel Pecan Fudge Bar 
  • Gluten-friendly, plant-based, and no-sugar-added treats 
  • Grand Floridian Combo Box featuring assorted fan-favorite treats, including the Chocolate Mickey Ornament, exclusive to the Combo Box

Last year the resort debuted its first Gingerbread display with its massive Gingerbread Baby Giraffe! This year you’ll be able to get your very own! Starting December 6, you can grab a “Gingeraffe Cookie” to enjoy!  We adore the simplistic design of this cookie. Sometimes less is more, and that is definitely the case here.
