During this yuletide season Disney traditionally takes gingerbread house building to a new height, making Walt Disney World the premiere holiday must do for all things merry! Due to Frozen record breaking success, one would expect the Norwegian fairy tale to bring its artic chill across the parks.

Take a look at the amazing time-lapse video below of the all-new Gingerbread Holiday Ice Castle at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, inspired by the film. The 17-foot-tall masterpiece is visible from the monorail as guests head to and from Magic Kingdom Park. The Frozen gingerbread castle took months to bake and five days to build. It is adorn with sugar snowflakes, gingerbread shingles and chocolate-coated trees with Anna, Elsa, Olaf, and more amongst the sugary creation.

New! PhotoPass Photos Automatically Linked to MagicBands: Are you a MagicBand wearer? Well if you are then you’re in for a treat…well it depends on if your definition of a treat is more on the creepy side. On select Walt Disney World Resort attractions, your photos will now be automatically associated with your My Disney Experience account. You don’t have to do anything… that’s kind of the creepy part.

If you’ve worn your MagicBand on one of the participating attractions in the last 45 days, you should be able to find that photo in your account now. If you don’t have a MagicBand you can use the new touch points at Magic Kingdom Park (Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, Space Mountain, Splash Mountain) and after you ride, simply find your photo on the preview wall and touch your park ticket or Memory Maker card to the touch point.
