We’ve talked about our love for the Walt Disney World resorts at Christmastime before and every year we are more blown away. The resorts are not only beautifully decorated with Christmas trees, garlands and offering up new treats, but several of them have the most stunning gingerbread displays you can imagine. One of those resorts is the Beach Club, who has the privilege of showing off a life size Gingerbread Carousel! We look forward to seeing it whenever we are at Walt Disney World for the holidays, and it’s also a really great way to get a break from those holiday crowds. This year The Beach Club is celebrating 20 years of Gingerbread and they’ve stepped up their gingerbread game to a whole new level! Best of all, this is one of our favorite free things to do during the holidays at Disney!
So what does that mean exactly? It means they’ve added new merchandise, treats and a super fun overlay to the Gingerbread carousel. So let’s take a look at this new masterpiece, shall we?!?!
The Gingerbread Carousel at Beach Club
The gingerbread carousel this year is all dressed up with characters and scenes from Peter Pan. Be aure to take notice to all the little details because trust me, there are a lot! From the ceiling to the floor, there is so much to notice in this year’s gingerbread display at The Beach Club. The carousel features all of your favorite characters from Peter Pan, including Peter himself, Wendy Darling, Smee, Tinkerbell and Captain Hook. You’ll notice a few others in cameos on the carousel as well, such as Tiger Lily, so be sure to keep an eye out for them!
Look all the way to the top of the carousel and not only will you see the London skyline, but also Peter and the Darlings flying off to Neverland! Pay close attention to each horse as they all have lots of details pertaining to the character they are referencing! And even Nana makes a special appearance near the Wendy Darling horse, because well, of course she has to watch over everyone! And we love seeing all of Tinkerbell’s tinkering accessories! Don’t worry, Peter hasn’t forgotten about the lost boys! They’re all still right with him:)
Finding Hidden Mickeys on the Carousel
There are still mickeys throughout the Gingerbread Display too, so don’t forget to be on the hunt for those! Like many of the other Gingerbread displays, there is a small shop that you can purchase Gingerbread goodies, other snacks and even some merch, including a mug, special edition pin, ears and more!
Disney Gingerbread Carousel at The Beach Club
Whatever your plans at Walt Disney World this season, we do hope you can make it over to the Gingerbread display at The Beach Club! The carousel theme changes every year and its such a treat! Just a short walk from the new skyliner station, or through the international gateway at Epcot, the Gingerbread carousel at The Beach Club is by far one of favorite holiday destinations. It’s perfect for the whole family; and whether you’re strolling the Boardwalk or looking to take a break from the Parks we think it’s something you’ll all enjoy!
