The Disney Pin Team Creates New Gingerbread House Pins Which Will be Released on November 15 at Various Locations

One of my favorite holiday details at Walt Disney World Resort is the gingerbread houses at select Theme Parks and Resorts. These festival displays have been a fan favorite for years. I love the time-lapse video of the house at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort being created first shared in the early days of the Disney Parks Blog by my fellow author Tom Smith. To celebrate the return of these houses, the Disney pin team is once again releasing several new limited edition pins in November.

  • Love these pins; I’ll be there next week for Thanksgiving; I hope they are still available by then. I may just have to call in a favor from the parents and have them go over there before I get there!!!

  • I love these! We will be at the Contemporary Resort Dec.8-16th and I know exactly what I will be buying first (as long as they are not sold out) :)

    • @Kelli – Four of the pins were released today, November 15. The Epcot pin will be released on November 22. The pins have various edition sizes so availability will depend upon popularity of each pin. Here is a breakdown:

      Epcot – 2,500
      Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa – 2,000
      Disney’s Contemporary Resort – 1,500

  • Will the pins be available after these dates or are they only for the meet and greet with the chefs?
