The pastry team at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa have taken this year’s gingerbread house to the next level by adding new magical touches just for the 50th anniversary of the Walt Disney World Resort. Guests can find EARidescent details added to this year’s gingerbread display by taking a close look at the shingles along the house’s roof and some of the windows which have been hand painted by the resort’s pastry team to showcase different Disney characters enjoying the holiday season.

Look closely between the sugar flowers, chocolate sculptures, shingles, and trimming on the house and you may even find some Hidden Mickeys hanging out around the display, too!

Disney Pastry Chef Assistant John Dettman told the Disney Parks Blog, “We know the gingerbread displays mean so much to our guests. This year, our team wanted our guests to be immersed in the 50th Anniversary celebration. We incorporated EARidescent hues into our hand painted character windows and Pastry Chef Assistant Fabiola Vidal Vazquez even applied cocoa butter EARidescent airbrush to our landscape plants and flowers.”
