Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort Gingerbread House
We’re starting off the list with what might just be the most iconic Disney World gingerbread display of all — the life-sized Grand Floridian Resort Gingerbread House!
If smelling alllll that delicious gingerbread is making you hungry, you’re in luck. This giant gingerbread house also serves as a shop that sells holiday treats!
If you’re on the hunt for a classic gingerbread house on a MASSIVE scale, be sure to add Grand Floridian Resort to your must-visit list this holiday season! We will let you know dates and times for the gingerbread house as soon as they are shared!
Disney’s Contemporary Resort Gingerbread Castle
We’re sticking on the Monorail loop for our next iconic gingerbread display. This year, the Gingerbread Castle will be returning to Disney’s Contemporary Resort to add some holiday cheer to the hotel!
It’s been a few years since we’ve seen the Gingerbread Castle in all its glory, so we’re excited to see it return in 2022! In past years, this display has included a treat stand nearby, so here’s yet another chance to satisfy those sweet cravings.
Who’s up for a gingerbread display Monorail crawl?? We will share more details on this display as soon as they are shared!
Disney’s Beach Club Resort Gingerbread Carousel
If you’re looking for a unique gingerbread creation, you NEED to swing by Disney’s Beach Club Resort to see the Gingerbread Carousel this year! Speaking of unique, the design of the carousel changes each year, drawing inspiration from different Disney characters. In 2018, it featured horses themed to Donald Duck and Daisy Duck…
…and last year, the horses were all inspired by characters from The Little Mermaid!
The changing carousel designs make this an extra-special tradition, so be sure to swing by Beach Club Resort to spot this year’s gingerbread carousel while you can! Again, we will share more specific opening details as soon as the are announced.
Disney’s BoardWalk Gingerbread Replica
While you’re in the neighborhood checking out the carousel at Beach Club, you may also want to swing by Disney’s BoardWalk Inn to see the return of the BoardWalk Gingerbread Replica!
In the past, this creation has featured gingerbread versions of the restaurants and scenery that line the BoardWalk.
This display has been missing in action for the past few years, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed that it will be making its sweet return to the BoardWalk lobby in 2022!
Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge Gingerbread Giraffe
Last year, we added another must-see holiday display to our list when Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge debuted their new Gingerbread Giraffe!
This sweet little guy should be returning home to the lobby of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge Jambo House for the 2022 holidays.
While you’re at Animal Kingdom Lodge, you may want to swing by Sanaa for a meal to spot some LIVE animals out on the savanna while you dine!
Other Gingerbread Displays to Look Out For
That covers all of the gingerbread displays that have been officially confirmed to be heading to Disney World in 2021.
But, there are a few spots where we’ve seen gingerbread creations pop up in the past, so we’ll be keeping a close eye on these places too in case they make an unannounced return this year!
Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Gingerbread Cabin
While it hasn’t been confirmed for 2022, in previous years, we have seen a Gingerbread Cabin in the lobby of Disney’s Wilderness Lodge.
We’ll be on the lookout for any updates about whether or not this rustic display will be returning this year, so stay tuned to DFB for any updates!
American Adventure Gingerbread Display
In previous years, we’ve also seen an American Adventure Gingerbread display pop up as part of the festival.
Disney hasn’t said whether it will be back this year, but of course, we’ll be there as soon as the festival kicks off to see whether it makes an appearance!
And that’s a wrap on all of the elaborate gingerbread displays heading to Disney World for the 2022 holiday season! We’re keeping a close eye on each of these spots so we can keep you updated with the latest progress on this year’s creations. Happy holidays, DFB fam!
