    OH gosh, there are loads!! Every deluxe resort has an incredible gingerbread creation. Beach Club has a gingerbread carosel!!

    The American pavilion has a huge gingerbread house too. They use it for a shop that sells cookies and hot chocolate and cider.

    Visit any of the deluxe resorts and look for their displays. Some are all gingerbread and some feature other types of confections (like chocolate ).

    They change them a bit sometimes, from year to year. One year at the Boardwalk Inn, as you entered the aroma of chocolate assaulted your senses! They had the boardwalk recreated in chocolate (and some other candies). Incredible.

    I don't honestly remember what is at the Contemporary...

    But there are really nice displays, and then there are the lovely decorations at every resort. It's well worth part of a day to tour the hotels and just take in all the holiday trimmings.

    Gives you inspiration for your own home, too.

    The resorts are decorated so beautifully. It's worth spending an afternoon/evening visiting the resorts to take a look.

    The gingerbread carosel must be adorable . I was at WDW twice around Christmas time and didn't know there were different displays .

    Not much at the Contemporary last year. The lobby was a boarded-up construction zone! I don't recall seeing gingerbread there in 2003 or 2004, either. But I may not have looked in the right places!

    Yeah, the Contemporary is not necessarily the best example of Christmas decorations at WDW.
