    Currently have a vacation booked for the first Christmas party when will the gingerbread houses be out

    Hi Eric,

    You are going to LOVE Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party! It's my very favorite special event of the entire year, and it's the PERFECT way to kick off the holiday season!

    While we can't know for sure what dates the amazingly creative Cast Members behind the gingerbread creations will reveal their masterpieces this year, I did find a few articles to hopefully give us a few clues. The Disney Parks Blog is always an awesome source for news about what's happening around the Walt Disney World Resort! While many holiday festivities kick off November 8th, it looks like most of the gingerbread creations weren't on display until a little bit later in the month last year. I just looked back through my photos from my family's trip last year in mid-November and we enjoyed hunting for the hidden Mickey's at Disney's Beach Club Resort's Holiday Carousel on November 17th. I had no idea that was the first day that it was displayed! I just knew that we loved getting to see it. It's so beautiful, and that smell...mmm! I'm sending some pixie dust that you'll be able to experience some of the gingerbread creations this year during your visit!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Eric, and please let us know if you have any other questions as you're planning your trip. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation, filled with lots of holiday joy!
