What a great series of shots – I loved seeing the construction of the gingerbread house and the finished product! Beautiful family photo too!!

Thanks Lisa- I only wish I had gotten a shot of the house panels laid out on the floor like a puzzle!!

Love it! I can smell it from here!

Yes Amanda- it does loose something without the scent!!

What a great series of pictures! I'm pleasantly surprised to see that they actually construct it on site. I always thought it was more prefab. We saw it when it finished and the detail was just amazing and the smell! I love your family picture! Just beautiful!! Thanks so much for sharing and for joining in on the WW Blog Hop fun.

Talk about labor intensive! I was surprised to see the actual house go up in less than one day, but I shouldn't have been, should I??

Always amazing to see what goes into something that is so famous at Disney this time of year. I am hoping to visit it next week 🙂

Beth, I'm jealous! We left this year before the shingles went up, so I will be checking your photos for the finished product!! Have a magical time!

What a cool job to have!

Imagine "gluing" on all those wonderful smelling shingles?! Sign me up!

So neat – I've seen tons of pictures of the Gingerbread house, but never the work in progress!

Thanks Becky- we could have stayed there all day!!

Interesting! I'm curious over what time period you had to be observing, to capture these different stages…?
November 28, 2012 at 8:14 pm
Good question! The first half were taken at noon on November 12th (sign says the "opening" was set for November 14th), and the completed and deconstruction half 6 years ago!!

How fun seeing it all put together. We will be here this weekend, I'll be sure to send a few before and after pictures as I borrow a few pieces to munch on.
November 29, 2012 at 2:17 am
That will be terrific- enjoy!!

I love it, great pictures Donna. Certainly makes me love this time of year 😉

Almost as good as those "lights", eh Diane? :-))

How cool is that to see it from start to a magnificent finished product. I've always wanted to see these giant gingerbread houses. Great group shot!
November 29, 2012 at 3:03 pm
Thanks Mary- I think I might schedule an entire day at the Grand Floridian just for this event!!

I could never work at a job like that. If I was on the construction crew, there would be a whole bunch of corners bitten off every panel, and there would probably be a shortage of candy to decorate with as well.

Then you wouldn't need a lunch pail!! Disney must do some serious screening; gluten-free workers only? 😀

Wow, that is amazing! The finished product was just stunning!!

Thanks Becca- fun stuff!!
