The Haunted Mansion Holiday Gingerbread House for 2018 Is…

Halloween Time has landed at Disneyland Resort and one of the favorite traditions at Disneyland park is the transformation of Haunted Mansion into Haunted Mansion Holiday.  For 18 years the popular attraction takes on the theme of “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas” and features a towering gingerbread house which changes each year.  This year, Disney has unveiled a creepy cool gingerbread display featuring a giant 5-foot spider.

Tim Wollweber, associate art director for Disney Parks, has been involved with Haunted Mansion Holiday since the beginning in 2001, and took the creative lead on the gingerbread display again this year.

“We wanted to create a monster movie vibe, and a scary spider is a classic and iconic Halloween image. With that in mind, we designed a giant 5-foot spider with eerie glowing eyes and moving legs and mandibles. This multicolor spider is suspended above the Haunted Mansion’s Grand Hall table, attempting to pry the edible mansion from its foundation, revealing candy cane rebar and sparking lights. General chaos ensues as gingerbread zombies watch in astonishment and cocoon-wrapped gingerbread zombies wait to become spider snacks.”

To turn this ginger-“dread” vision into something edible, Disneyland Central Bakery started baking gingerbread over a month ago. No less than 12 pastry chefs – led by Assistant Pastry Chef Christina Orejel – get involved, transforming gingerbread, icing, and fondant into this scary fun masterpiece.
