The Grand Floridian Gingerbread House 2019

The Grand Floridian Gingerbread House was on the top of our Winter to do list, so seeing as it is December 1st, we decided to pop on over.  Back in September I made an Autumn to do list. It was full of ideas and activities for my family to do in order to have an amazing Autumn. We managed to do everything on the list and did have a special season.
            Now that it is Winter, we have put together another bucket list of things to do in order to have a magical Holiday season. A few highlights off the Winter to do list are Chip and Dale’s Christmas Tree Hunt at Epcot, the Christmas Tree Trail at Disney Springs, Enchant Christmas in St. Petersburg, making Christmas cookies, eggnog, and fudge. Plus decorating inside and out. We also have multiple Advent calendars we open daily, and movies we are planning to watch. 
          Most things will be just Staci and me, but occasionally my son Lee will join us. So today we started off at the Celebration Farmer’s Market and picked up some guacamole, pico de gallo, and ceviche. We also got some homemade jam from the two cute little old ladies who said they grow the fruit on their property. They were impossible to resist. 
          After that we drove to Disney Springs to catch the bus to the Grand Floridian. It is a good thing too as there are signs at the gate that they are not letting anybody in the parking lot who is not a guest or has a confirmed dining reservation.  I like riding the shuttles, so many people from all over the world, all coming together to enjoy Disney. It makes me feel blessed to be able to go to Disney any time I feel like it. Those people save up forever in order to do what Staci and I do on a weekly basis. So, on the bus to the Grand Floridian. Everything there is decorated Victorian style.
          I like more reds and greens, but the pinks, mints, and cream colors were pretty. Inside it was very crowded with holiday tourists. The line for the Gingerbread Shop was impressively long LOL. Staci and I entertained ourselves by looking for the 21 hidden Mickeys adorning the house. We managed to find all of them
😊 Choosing what to get was a challenge. We wanted one of everything, but as you can see by the prices that did not happen.
          We ended up getting an assortment of gingerbread, a gingerbread boy, mickey ears dipped in chocolate, and the Princess Aurora gingerbread mug. I did not get a chance to take a picture of the Mickey Ears LOL we ate it too fast. It was delicious. The Gingerbread is soft and not too sweet.  The house was beautiful.
          So many details, it is amazing to see. It even puffs out white smoke from the chimney LOL
We were completely enchanted the whole time.
