Grand Floridian Resort

The Grand Floridan has one of the most amazing gingerbread houses anywhere…ever. That’s two stories of Christmas goodness right there.

They sell snacks, gingerbread, and cupcakes that got a two thumbs up from my son. Sweets and their prices could vary from year to year.

They place trees by the orchestra on the second floor, and they will play Christmas carols at various times, as will the pianist on the ground floor.
