This year marks the tenth anniversary of Haunted Mansion Holiday at Disneyland park, but there was one celebration you might not have known about. Each year, some very different teams from across Disneyland Resort gather for a very special project: the Haunted Mansion Holiday gingerbread house. Cast members from teams like Operations, Engineering, Creative Development and Food and Beverage all work together to bring this spooky but tasty creation to life. In this video, we learn how they do it and what they do to mark their special reunion each year.

Check out the posts below for more on this year’s tasty creation:


  • Hey, they’re using a hot-glue gun to tack on the gingerbread man instead of frosting. That wouldn’t be very tasty.

  • I have always wondered why you do not have the Haunted Mansion Holiday at the Disney World location.

  • We are huge Nightmare Before Christmas and Tim Burton fans as well as Haunted Mansion fans! We look forward to this every Year and make sure to ride it at least 3 times a week or visit!

  • Still waiting for Haunted Mansion Holiday to come to WDW…

  • I love the video thank you for showing us i love how they do it every year i would love to have a poster of all the gingerbread houses time line 2001-2011 that would be cool this year gingerbread house just blow me away i just love haunted mansion holiday or maybe a t-shirt with all of the gingerbread houses and say 10th anniversary on it what would be so cool =-)

  • Thank You! That video was cool and I love the Haunted Mansion Holiday! I went last year, and wish that I could be there this year!

  • We LOVE the Haunted Mansion Holiday! And we’d LOVE to see a book or postcards or any printed materials for a keepsake of all the years’ gingerbread houses. The pins this year are very cool, but would like a more photographic in-depth coverage of each house. All the creative teams that come together to make these are just fantastic and should receive even more recognition! WE LOVE what they do!

  • Thank you so much for the time and effort you put into the Haunted Mansion for the holidays! It seriously is the best and just goes to show how much thought and care you guys have for the parks!

  • I love Haunted Mansion Holiday!

    I think this year’s gingerbread house is one of the best ever!
