Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa Lobby
Right in the lobby of Disney’s Californian Hotel & Spa, you will see a gorgeous gingerbread display that is completely out of this world. It is actually a replica of the resort’s façade and stands seven feet tall! (And be on the lookout for hidden Mickeys).
Disney guests can also enjoy A Grand Gingerbread House Experience, which is fun for the whole family! In this hands-on workshop, you can meet the Disney pastry chefs who crafted the iconic gingerbread house in the lobby of Disney’s Californian Hotel & Spa and even learn how to create one on your own.
A Grand Gingerbread House Experience occurs from 3:00-4:30 pm on Dec. 15, 18, 21, and 22. For more information and to make reservations, you can visit the Disneyland Resort website.
The Holiday Cart at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa
The Holiday Cart is full of sweet treats for the holiday season. From holiday cookies and gingerbread man cookies to apple caramel pound cake and white chocolate brownie pops, even peppermint bark and gingerbread crispy treats, the Holiday Cart has an array of treats, guaranteed to leave your sweet tooth satisfied!
Disney guests can also warm up with hot apple cider or creamy hot chocolate! And if you want to channel your inner child, try the cookie shots, which are sweet cookie cups filled with your choice of chocolate milk or hot chocolate with pumpkin, peppermint, or caramel syrup. And those over 21 years of age, you can fill your cookie shot with rum, Irish cream liqueur, cinnamon cream liqueur, or peppermint schnapps!

Disney guests can bring tropics into the holidays by heading over to Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto and Tiki Terrace to get your hands on the 2019 holiday Tiki mug! Inspired by the Jungle Cruise, this year’s mug features a Jungle Cruise Skipper who is holding his ship’s steering wheel.
The tiki mug comes filled with the Mele Kaliki Mai Tai, which is an adult beverage consisting of dark rum, superior rum, allspice liqueur, cranberry juice, orgeat, cinnamon, and a splash of fresh lime juice and garnished with a cinnamon stick.
