The 2018 Gingerbread Carousel was assembled and running at Disney’s Beach Resort by mid-November this year.
It really is amazing!
We got to see the pastry chefs assemble the Disney’s Beach Resort Gingerbread Carousel a few years ago and it was amazing!
The carousel’s colors change slightly every year.
They started at 4am (!!!) and got it all done in one day….it was up and totally decorated – and running – by 8pm!
Some more photos of the completed carousel:
This holiday season, look for a life-size, fully rotating gingerbread carousel display in the Beach Club’s lobby. There are seven Hidden Mickeys (look on the horse’s rumps!).
It took 36 lbs. of honey, 96 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, 10 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. Opening date/pin release day: November 19, 2015.

Lions and Tigers and Strollers, Oh My!
This is not Caroline’s first time in the Disney College Program. Along with her sister, she was previously accepted into the program a few years earlier. Back in Colorado, Caroline was wishing for a little more pixie dust to brighten up her life. On a whim, she decides to apply to the exclusive Disney Alumni Summer Program.
Now that she’s back, things get wild.
Wild, as in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, where Caroline is assigned to work in Stroller Rental. While not the most glamorous position in the park, it’s often ground zero for humanity at its best and at its worst.
While Caroline makes many “Magical Moments” for deserving guests whose pixie dust has gone temporarily sideways, she also receives magical moments of her own through the friendships she makes, going to Disney cast member exclusive events, and all the spectacular dining opportunities at Disney World.
Caroline tells all – from the ins and outs of Disney’s secret training class called Traditions; to learning how to be a happy cast member during on-the-job training; to what it’s like to interact with fellow cast members and the guests who are ready to explore the most magical place on earth.
Join Caroline as she takes you on a wild ride through her adventures in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. But be careful, it’s a jungle out there!
