All of the Disneyland hotels are in on the fun, so you can stay right by the magic at your choice of Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Space, Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel, or the classic Disneyland Hotel and find yourself steps away from all the fun.

Disney’s Grand Californian Resort & Spa currently features this incredible Oogie Boogie display from The Nightmare Before Christmas. Oogie’s cauldron in this festive setup is over four feet fall! The coolest part about this display? It’s entirely edible.

The Disney Parks Blog shared the “recipe” below from the resort’s pastry shop:

  • 260 pounds of powdered sugar
  • 380 eggs
  • 220 pounds of rice cereal
  • 95 pounds of marshmallow
  • 80 pounds of butter
  • 120 pounds of dark chocolate
  • 80 pounds of white chocolate
  • 480 pounds of fondant
  • 370 hours of planning and hands-on work
  • 13 hidden Mickeys!
  • Jack Skellington cookie

This Oogie Boogie display truly rivals the Grand Floridian’s annual gingerbread house display with that ingredients list! We’d love to stop by the Grand Californian and search for those 13 hidden Mickeys, too.

Much like the Grand Floridian gingerbread house display, Oogie Boogie’s true purpose in the Grand Californian lobby is to draw us over for some cookies! (And how could we say no to Oogie?!) Nearby in the lobby, Guests can stop to purchase Mickey-shaped monster cookies, Jack Skellington cookies, Oogie Boogie cupcakes, skull-faced cookies, Mickey whoopie pies, and chocolate chip cookie shot glasses with milk.

Over at Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel, Guests can encounter a seasonal display featuring Ursula, the infamous sea witch from The Little Mermaid. This display is truly impressive with Ursula’s tentacles encompassing the entire lobby!
