Halloween Time at Disneyland Resort is just around the corner, and I’ve got your first look at this year’s Haunted Mansion Holiday gingerbread house. Gingerbread houses have graced the ballroom scene of Haunted Mansion Holiday for the past 15 years, and this year’s creation consists of:

  • 200 pounds gingerbread
  • 200 pounds powdered sugar
  • 4 gallons egg whites
  • 1 gallon lemon juice
  • 50 pounds fondant
  • 1/3 pound glitter

As you can see, the house is inspired by one of our favorite Halloween Town residents, Sally, from “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.”

“The whole structure has been cobbled and stitched together from other different gingerbread houses and treats,” says Tim Wollweber, Associate Art Director for Disney Parks, who designed this year’s house. “But it appears that sometime during the house’s construction, a gingerbread ghoul was entombed! Apparently he’s eager to sew himself up inside – much like another mansion graveyard ghoul you’ve probably seen.”
