National Gingerbread Day 2022

Happy National Gingerbread Day!!!  If you've hung around here, you know how much I love gingerbread.  From making Mickey Gingerbread Cards, to collecting gingerbread items for Christmas decorations, to decorating and eating cookies, to drooling over all sorts of Disney holiday merchandise... I love me some gingerbread.

At first, I wasn't sure what to write, but I decided I'd write about my favorite Disney gingerbread experiences.  There are so many things that incorporate gingerbread. 

The first thing I think of when I think of Disney and gingerbread is the giant house at the Grand Floridian Resort.  I look forward to seeing what the house looks like every year.  It always amazes me with how big it is.  I made so many models during my interior design classes in college; I have such an appreciation for things like this!

Another thing I love is the display at the Contemporary Resort.  One of my favorite designs was this display of Cinderella Castle, Cinderella and Prince Charming.

Something I wasn't expecting was a gingerbread house in the Disney Dream lobby.  I was surprised to learn that each of the ships also get their own gingerbread house!

One of my favorite memories was going to the gingerbread decorating session aboard the Disney Dream with my family.  Eliot and I had a blast doing it, and I know that my Mom, Dad, Jeremy and Nana enjoyed it too.  It was fun and delicious! 

Finally, it's not an "official" Disney thing... but the Mickey and Minnie Gingerbread mouse ears that Eliot made me a few years ago are one of my favorite things.  I've loved this design for years, and for years it was only available on merchandise over in Japan.  The US Disney Merchandise Team has finally caught up with the times over the past few years, but for the longest time I couldn't find anything over here.  Eliot made me this design after I basically begged him to and these ears are still one of my favorite designs that we do.  They're always pretty popular each holiday season too!

As you can see, I'm pretty big on gingerbread!  While I have no idea why National Gingerbread Day is celebrated in June when Gingerbread Cookie Day is in November and Gingerbread House Day is in December, I'm still happy to celebrate it now!  (Plus, I guess it just spreads the celebration out!)  Happy National Gingerbread Day!!!  °o°
