Trio of Gingerbread Houses grace American Adventure Pavilion

To me there’s something about the smell of Gingerbread that means Christmas is right around the corner. I felt very close to the holiday when entering the American Adventure Pavilion lobby and smelling the three huge Gingerbread Houses representing three iconic buildings from Washington D.C.

New this year is the Lincoln Memorial. It joins the US Capitol Building and Washington Monument in a giant display. If they add the White House next year they can have most of the Washington Mall in Gingerbread.

If you’ve ever tried to build even one of those small gingerbread houses, you know that to make ones this size is quite a feat. The three buildings took 150 pounds of Gingerbread, 80 pounds of Royal Icing, 16 pounds of modeling chocolate, and six hidden Mickeys.

We took this video while trying to find the Hidden Mickey icons. I think we found all six.

Do you have a favorite Gingerbread House experience when you visit Walt Disney World during the holidays?

  1. For sure…the Gingerbread House in the Grand Floridian is a marvel not to be missed!!!!!!!! We just got back and every year it is always a stop no mater where we stay or where we eat….plus, they sell a chocolate covered gingerbread “shingle” (for those of you who don’t know) in the little store within the gingerbread house. Picture spot for sure…and yummy purchase to bring home for gifts, too!
