2019 Gingerbread Castle

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.

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

…in 2019, we saw a Peter Pan theme…
