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.”
You’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.
But if you look ever-so-closely, you will notice that there are several hidden Mickeys (17 to be exact) on the display! As you can see above, some are easier to spot than others. You should be able to spot them all if you look carefully enough.
Wondering how this Cinderella Gingerbread display was created? Well, it took 20 Contemporary Bakers and seven days to complete!
