At 237 square feet, this gingerbread house on the Disney Dream is the largest holiday culinary creation in the Disney Cruise Line fleet! Each Disney ship features an oversized gingerbread house uniquely created by its own crew.

Baked, built and decorated onboard, the Disney Dream’s house took approximately 320 hours from beginning to end. While the ship’s culinary team baked the gingerbread cookies and prepared the other ingredients, the ship’s carpenters built the framework. Then, each brick was individually aligned and stuck to the frame with icing before the real fun began: adding lots of sweet treats and Disney-themed décor!

On Jan. 8, 2012 Disney Fantasy floated out of the Shipyard in Germany on it’s way to its new home at Port Canaveral. Disney Fantasy’s Maiden Voyage will be March 31, 2012. Keep watching for more updates on this beautiful ship!
