NEWS: Disney World Hotels Will NOT Feature Gingerbread House Displays for the Holidays

It’s the start of the Halloween season, and Disney is celebrating by dropping a lot of news about — Christmas?

2019 Christmas Decorations

That’s right! Today, Disney has announced that EPCOT’s Festival of the Holidays will be happening, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and the Candlelight Processional won’t be happening, PLUS Cinderella Castle will get a temporary holiday glow-up. But, that’s not all, because Disney also announced that another favorite holiday tradition will be taking a break this year.

According to Disney, there will not be gingerbread house displays at the Disney World hotels this year.

Disney has confirmed that while the Disney Resort hotels will be getting their holiday decorations, complete with trees and festive decor, they will not be doing the gingerbread displays this year “due to physical distancing guidelines.”

  1. The bean counters are at work. To blame it on social distancing is pure PR. It is a cost saving measure. Just like not having the dream lights on Cinderella Castle. Dream lights or projections are the same thing—but this year projections for Christmas are probably adaptions from Minnie’s Fireworks-nothing new–so minimal cost involved. Maybe not the Twilight Zone, but all of Disney World is rapidly becoming “Fantasyland.”

  2. This is getting absolutely ridiculous. Did you ever think we’d see the day when Disney said, “We won’t be building the gingerbread houses this year because people have to stand too close to each other to look at them.” I feel like I’m in the Twilight Zone.
