Gingerbread houses?

Just curious when these start going up. We have an ADR at the Polynesian on the 21 and were hoping to stop by the GF after to look around and I was hoping to see the house. Thank you!

The gingerbread house at the Grand was up when we were there 11/6. It wasn't quite ready for operation yet but looked to be complete.

I thought I read November 29th, but OKW Lover said it was just about ready to go. Maybe someone who is there now will have an idea.

Does anyone know if you aren't at WDW if you can have a mini, replica house sent to you? If so, who do you contact and about how much can I expect to spend???

Just got back from the GF yesterday. The house is complete, the store is not open yet. They have the gingerbread for sale in the shop nearby. (they are shaped like the pieces used for the siding).

Osborne lights were up too!(HS)

They do sell mini-houses (not quite replicas) at the stores inside (or next to) the edible showpieces. However, being that they are food, I'm not sure Disney will mail order them. You could call Merchandise Mail Order and see if they can help you.

According to MiceChat, last year the "Signature Gingerbread House" cost $70.

Don't know about this year, but last year there was one at the Boardwalk as well.

Beach Club had a gingerbread carousel, Boardwalk Inn had a gingerbread house and there was one in the Liberty Inn CS in World Showcase when we were there.
