horse3This holiday season, look for a life-size, fully rotating gingerbread carousel display – Off to Neverland – in the Beach Club’s lobby. There are 20 Hidden Golden Mickeys celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the carousel. (Hint:  look on the horse’s rumps!)

It took 100 lbs. of honey, 100 lbs. of bread flour, 100 pints of eggs, 10 lbs. of spices, 10 quarts of simple syrup, 100 lbs. of icing, 50 lbs. of dark chocolate, 50 quarts of egg whites, and 100 lbs. of confectioner sugar to make the carousel!

Take home sweet gingerbread treats, including small gingerbread kits, from the Beach Club Marketplace.
