We saw the guy taping this video the day we were at the Contemporary to see it’s ‘Frozen’ gingerbread display…the first 30 seconds of shots in the video probably took him an hour to film!

We got to see several gingerbread displays under construction at Disney World. The Contemporary Resort debuted its brand new 2014 ‘Frozen’ Gingerbread display on November 20, 2014.

This year’s display theme is Arendelle meets “it’s a small world”, bringing ‘Frozen’ characters into the vintage style of beloved Disney artist Mary Blair. The background looks a lot like the Norwegian Stave Church found over at Epcot.

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale

   by Elly Collins & Caroline Collins

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???

We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program (Fall 2013/Spring 2014) and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.

We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney.
