It’s the yummiest time of year! Gingerbread, peppermint, marshmallow, you name it, we have it at Disney Springs. Of all the holiday flavors, gingerbread is my absolute favorite. There’s something so nostalgic about enjoying a classic gingerbread cookie and a cup of hot cocoa with friends and family during the holiday season. From the smell to its iconic shape, gingerbread has become a holiday tradition in our Disney Parks as well and has inspired new merchandise this year.
We know our guests love their holiday foods too so our merchandise team created the Disney Holiday Park Foods Collection — a new favorite featuring all your classic park holiday treats like cookies, apples, and candy as adorable ornaments, mugs, pajamas, ears and more. This collection has perfect items for every foodie or Disney Fan on your shopping list and you can find it all at World of Disney.
Who else loves the smell of gingerbread? Basin is always known for having popular scents of the season in their fresh, natural bath bombs, soaps, body scrubs, candles, and more. Don’t miss out on their cute collection of products filled with the fragrance of warm gingerbread straight from the oven.
Over at The LEGO Store, I spotted this amazing brick-built LEGO Creator Expert Gingerbread House packed with seasonal charm and intricate details like a glowing fireplace! A perfect gift for the kids or the whole family to do Christmas morning.
Don’t forget to treat yourself while you’re shopping—there’s plenty of gingerbread-inspired sweets and beverages for everyone’s sweet tooth. Here are a few of my favorites:
Give it a chai! Joffrey’s Ginger Chai Madness is a Chai latte with Baileys Irish Cream and gingerbread syrup. (Also available as a non-alcoholic and iced option.)
Treat yourself to the Gingerbread Man Shake at Vivoli il Gelato filled with gelato, milk, a waffle cone, chocolate sauce, freshly-baked gingerbread man cookie, whipped cream and sprinkles.
Coming soon to Sprinkles is the classic Gingerbread Cupcake baked with fragrant spiced ginger cake topped with cream cheese frosting and dusted with cinnamon sugar and adorned with a gingerbread man decoration. This sweet treat will be available December 2-25.
