Disney’s Beach Club Resort features a unique holiday display – a moving carousel made of Gingerbread!  The Gingerbread Carousel is located in the middle of the Resort lobby and is surrounded by additional decorations. Let’s take a tour of some of the unique decorations in this Holiday Display.

Keep an eye or two out for some surprises this year.

The “Gingerbread” shop was closed on my visits.

The Beach Club Marketplace offers quite a few holiday treats.  I believe these are some of the items that should be for sale in the small shop.

Gingerbread House Kit – $20
Gingerbread House – $38
Stollen Bread – $16.50
Gingerbread Shingle – $4.50 With Disney Vacation Club or Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resort logo
Gingerbread Snowflake Cookie – $5.25
Oreo Pops – $4.50 Featuring Captain Hook, Tinkebell, or Ariel

The only item missing from the display during my visit was the Gingerbread Cupcake, which is $5.00 according to the sign.

  • Question about the beautiful carousel horses, are they wooden or made out of chocolate or something?

    Thank you for bringing us all these great photos from the WDW hotels! I’ve got to say that Grand Floridian is probably my favorite. It just had the right scale. But each of the displays was unique and that’s what makes it worth the journey.

      Dusty, the horses are made of chocolate.

      Chef Stefan, Executive Pastry Chef in Walt Disney Parks Development re-did the carousel in 2002. Each horse has a metal frame inside and each pole a small pipe for structure. Everything else, is chocolate or gingerbread.
