“We know the gingerbread displays mean so much to our guests,” Pastry Chef Assistant John Dettman said. “This year, our team wanted our guests to be immersed in the 50th Anniversary celebration. We incorporated EARidescent hues into our hand painted character windows and Pastry Chef Assistant Fabiola Vidal Vazquez even applied cocoa butter EARidescent airbrush to our landscape plants and flowers.”
Disney’s Beach Club Resort Gingerbread Carousel (open now – Jan. 2)
The gingerbread carousel’s theme changes each year and this year, the inspiration came from Disney’s “The Little Mermaid,” and cast members created five detailed horses depicting some of their favorite animated characters.
“The gingerbread display is a team effort,” Jesse Rodriguez, a Pastry Chef Assistant, said. “We all pitch ideas and add our own elements and talents to create something special for our guests. We have so much fun and see first-hand how much the guests enjoy what we we’ve created.”
