While at Disney World this holiday season, be sure to take the monorail over to the Contemporary Resort to see the Cinderella Gingerbread Display on the fourth floor. This gingerbread display recreates Cinderella’s castle in the style of Mary Blair on a backdrop that is inspired by “it’s a small world.”

Contemporary Resort Cinderella GingerbreadYou’ll find enormous gingerbread cookies of Cinderella and Prince Charming standing in front of Cinderella’s Castle. It’s hard to believe that the entire display is edible! There are so many details from the Christmas trees to the decorations on them.
