    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. :yes:

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

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

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

    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. :yes:

    Gives you inspiration for your own home, too. :yes:

    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.
