It’s that wonderful time of year again when Disney goes all out decorating every square inch of the resort for the holidays. We aren’t just talking Osborne Family Lights and Frozen transformed Cinderella Castle friends, every resort hotel is also included in the festivities. This year at the Contemporary Resort, guests are being treated to an all-new Gingerbread Holiday Ice Castle on the 4th floor Grand Canyon Concourse inspired by Disney’s animated hit Frozen. This 17 foot tall masterpiece is embellished with snowflakes, sugar and chocolate-coated trees. And, of course, it wouldn’t be complete without our favorite characters Anna, Elsa, Olaf, Kristoff and Sven. There is also an Ice Castle Kiosk where you can purchase Frozen themed merchandise, build-your-own snowman marshmallow kits, Frozen ice desserts and gingerbread treats.
Thinking about making your own Frozen Gingerbread Castle? Here’s what they used:
- 423 lbs. of chocolate
- 514 lbs. of flour
- 212 eggs
- 67 lbs. of spices
- 35 lbs. of sugar syrup
- 311 lbs. of honey
- 222 lbs. of icing
- 1,500 gingerbread shingles

If you get the chance to see this masterpiece in person this year,
be sure to look for the 14 “hidden Olafs” in the display.
