Gingerbread house at Grand Floridian
 
How does the gingerbread house stay up? We will be at WDW starting Jan 2 and I would love to snag a piece of that gingerbread before it's gone.

You won't snag any part of the gingerbread house at the GF. They don't sell the house. But they do sell gingerbread from the house. And by Jan 2 it might all be gone.

LOL, I know you can't eat the house. We saw it last December and I spent over $100.00 on gingerbread goodies (don't tell DH). I hadn't even thought about it until today and just wondered how long they leave it up.

Maybe you can volunteer to help take it down and snag a few shingles and save a few bucks in the process!:rolleyes1
Kidding, just kidding!

You will be cutting it close! We checked in on January 1st this year and it was the last day! In fact they were giving away tons of gingerbread, we ended up with about 5 bags. :lmao:

I'm not too proud to snag but I'll probably miss it. We arrive on the 1-2-13 so by the time I could get over there it will be gone.

TigrLvsPooh, thanks for the pictures! Brings back yummy memories of last Christmas.

When does it go up?
 
Ok- sorry to hijack the thread, but since we now know when it comes down, the next questions is when does it go up?:confused3
We will be there next week and the 1st MVMCP is also next week. Have always wanted to see it but miss it.
So........what are my chances of it being up- would love to hop off the monorail to take a peek!
Thanks so much!

I'll bet they are making gingerbread shingles right now. I can only imagine how good that bakery smells.

We're arriving 1/1 and I just asked this question on Disney's Mom Panel. The mom who responded said it's set to close 12/31 this year and will be taken down 1/1. Looks like we'll both miss it. :(

Just wanted to say that my family of 5 tried the gingerbread samples there were giving out there a few years back, and they were AWFUL!! :eek: Smelled wonderful but tasted terrible...

That surprises me. I wonder if this panelist actually talked to someone high up enough to give the correct information? January 1st is a national holiday, to think they'd have a construction crew working that day (and probably on double holiday pay) seems questionable. Or maybe I'm just bitter and I want them to be wrong. :lmao:

Some of the ones with the jelly inside are gross I agree.
