Have you heard about the 2021 gingerbread house at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort? Construction on the gingerbread house was recently completed. So, I stopped by to check it out and bring you the details along with a few photos.
This year, the gingerbread house at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort is themed to Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary. Chefs lovingly created the house with over 1,050 pounds of honey, 600 pounds of sugar, and 800 pounds of flour! And that’s just naming a few of the ingredients!
The elaborate design of the house includes blue and golden tones matching the 50th-anniversary decor. You can see it for yourself in the lobby of Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort between now and January 1, 2022.
Let’s look at a few photos.
The house sits at the back of the Grand Floridian’s main lobby. This location is similar to where it was placed in the past. However, it’s pretty straight on instead of sitting on a diagonal.
I feel like the placement of the gingerbread house will make it easier for guests to walk around and see it from different angles.
The area around the house is roped off. But you can walk up to the ropes and take a photo.
Usually, the gingerbread house tends to have a lot of reds and greens in the mix. However, this year is a little special given it’s the world’s most magical celebration. Therefore, most of the theming around the park has a blue and gold look to it.
And the theming of this year’s gingerbread house ties in nicely with the elegant look of the Grand Floridian.
Make sure to lean in to see all the details.
The transoms above each window feature an airbrushed painting of classic Disney characters.
All of the trim has a golden shine.
There are darling nutcrackers and other figurines placed on the porches.
Additionally, the Grand Floridian’s gingerbread house doubles as a candy shop!
Guests can walk up to the back counter, and a cast member will take your order from the window.
Here is a look from the back of the lobby.
There are signs out indicating what you can purchase. In addition, there are several details about the house itself.
The little gingerbread man cutout lists all of the ingredients used to make the 2021 house.
And this signage indicates that the house opened on November 10, 2021. Guests can purchase treats daily between 9:30 a.m. and 9:00 p.m.
Lastly, here is a list of the treats available for purchase. They include gingerbread shingles and gingerbread men cookies, among many other things.
If you have the opportunity, I highly recommend visiting the Grand Floridian Resort at some point during your vacation. You might enjoy a meal at Grand Floridian Cafe and take the chance to stop in and see the gingerbread house.
Or, if you are visiting Magic Kingdom, you could take a break in the day and take the resort monorail over to see this fabulous creation. Of course, it’s always fun to see the Grand Floridian during the holidays.
