    We are arriving in Disneyworld on 10/31 to see the change from Halloween to Christmas over the next week. When will they begin construction on the gingerbread house at Grand Floridian? We were hoping to see construction in action when we visit there 11/3.

    Hi Kelly, welcome to planDisney!

    I have yet to see anything announced regarding the gingerbread house at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa for 2023.  However, I did some research and discovered that the gingerbread house began construction on November 1st last year, and was officially announced to be open on November 9, 2022.  Hopefully, the timeframe will remain the same this year so that you can watch some of the construction and potentially enjoy some gingerbread goodies!  

    I would suggest keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog as I'm sure they will make an announcement in the coming weeks.  It's hard to believe this will be the 25th year for the annual gingerbread house at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.  If you'd like to go back in time, in 2018, the Disney Parks Blog posted a video where Guests could Watch as Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort Pastry Chefs Build the 20th Annual Life-Sized Gingerbread House.  The building process certainly is fascinating.

    If your schedule allows, I would like to recommend you head over to Disney's Beach Club Resort to my other favorite gingerbread display - the gingerbread carousel. Last year this opened on November 1st so hopefully the timeframe is similar this year for this must-see display.

    I hope you enjoy your magical holiday vacation at Walt Disney World!
