It’s the most magical time of the year at the Walt Disney World Resort! The holiday season at Walt Disney World parks and resorts would not be complete without all of the festive decorations including massive floor to ceiling Christmas trees, and beautifully detailed gingerbread displays.
You may know about the gingerbread house at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, which is a life sized creation that even has Cast Members selling gingerbread shingles and other sweets and treats inside the house, or the gorgeous gingerbread carousel on display at Disney’s Beach Club Resort [this year’s is themed to The Little Mermaid (1989)!] Did you know there is another gingerbread display that’s on our must-see list over in EPCOT?
The American Adventure pavilion in World Showcase features their own annual gingerbread display for the holiday season, and this year’s features not only one, but three different gingerbread houses representing different locations relevant to American history! This year’s display includes miniature gingerbread versions of the Lincoln Memorial, the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, and even the American Adventure itself.
Since these displays were created during “The World’s Most Magical Celebration,” they also feature an additional plaque for the 50th anniversary of the Walt Disney World Resort.
Pastry Chef Assistant Agueda Vasquez told the Disney Parks Blog, “Our gingerbread displays are very detailed, and we are as accurate as we can be to the original structures they are based on. It’s just so great to see the guests’ faces when they walk into the room and admire the amount of time and detail we put into these tiny structures.”
The American Adventure Pavilion is certainly a must-see during your visit to EPCOT, not only for the American Adventure show but also to check out the pavilion’s exhibitions, artwork, and during the holidays, gingerbread houses.
These displays are only up until December 30, 2021, so if you have a trip to Walt Disney World coming up soon, be sure to check them out!
