Guests to EPCOT at Walt Disney World can experience the annual tradition and visit the Gingerbread Houses on display in the center rotunda of the American Adventure pavilion.
- Located in the lobby of The American Adventure at EPCOT, the traditional gingerbread house displays have returned.
- There are three displays, one representing the Lincoln Memorial, another representing the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, and the last one indicative of The American Adventure pavilion itself.
- Back in July, Walt Disney World announced that the Gingerbread houses in the American Adventure would return, along with other iconic edible structures at the Disney Resorts, like Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa, and Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resorts.
- The gingerbread houses have quite the following, and fans will notice several differences this year. As part of the World’s Most Magical Celebration, celebrating 50 years of Walt Disney World, each gingerbread house on display in the American Adventure rotunda features a chocolate emblem of the 50th anniversary logo. Hidden (and some not-so-hidden) Mickeys are peppered throughout, ranging from faux topiaries in the displays, to little gold emblems featuring the popular three-circled look.
- The Gingerbread Houses inside the American Adventure pavilion debuted alongside EPCOT’s International Festival of the Holidays, which started on November 26th and runs through December 30th, 2021. During the Festival, guests can stroll through World Showcase and be inspired by different holiday entertainment inspired by cultures from around the world. Guests heading to EPCOT during this special festival should check their times guides to be sure to catch all of the fun.
