It must be Christmas-time around Disney’s Resort Hotels.

With a little magic, and probably a lot of overtime hours by Disney pastry chefs, several of the resorts around Disney World have put up huge displays made from cookie fun.

Let’s take a look at two of these impressive cookie creations.

Grand Floridian Gingerbread House

This year marks the 15th anniversary of the unique gingerbread house at the Grand Floridian. As you might know, the gingerbread house is located in the impressive lobby of the resort and is the size of a real house. Actual real-life Disney Cast Members set up shop inside selling gingerbread cookies and other Christmas goodies.

The house itself has great details all around. Check out the Christmas characters on the porches and the Disney characters who appear in the window casings.

Over at the Contemporary, you can find a humongous Christmas tree made of gingerbread. The tree is set against a backdrop that recalls the look and feel of It’s A Small World, complete with the colors and shapes that Disney Legend and artist Mary Blair designed into the feel of the world-famous attraction.

Each leaf on the tree is an individual cookie. You can purchase wrapped gingerbread cookies to eat as well as other special treats like Christmas sugar cookies and even a hidden Mickey cupcake. I have no idea how they created the Mickey Mouse shape from chocolate cake inside this vanilla cupcake, but I think it is pretty amazing!
