FIRST LOOK: 2018 Haunted Mansion Holiday gingerbread house is an uplifting experience!


After revealing the concept art for the house last month, Disney D23 has also given us our first look at the sugary new confection inside the Haunted Mansion Holiday.

This year, the sugary abode has literally been ripped from its foundations as a giant gingerbread spider suspended from the rafters takes the prized treat for its own! The spider has glowing eyes, movable mandibles and a candy stained-glass thorax! According to Disney twenty-three Fall 2018 issue, in total it measures approximately three feet tall with the house below pushing an additional three feet in height.

What goes into this year’s masterpiece?

  • 12 pastry chefs (led by Assistant Pastry Chef Christina Orejel)
  • 90 pounds gingerbread
  • 30 pounds of confectioner’s sugar
  • 10 pounds of white chocolate
  • 45 pounds of fondant
