Every Halloween since 2001, the Disneyland Resort has a really fun tradition of building a giant gingerbread house in the ballroom scene of Haunted Mansion Holiday. Here’s a shot of the gingerbread confection that’s the centerpiece of the table in the ballroom in the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland park, this year for the Haunted Mansion Holiday that opened Friday.
Six foot tall, with 500 pounds of ginger bread this house is on display through Christmas, is the 2011 house.
The 2010 model, on view in the Mansion through Jan. 2, features a replica of Jack Skellington’s holiday clock from the Haunted Mansion Holiday exterior, with Jack himself popping up from behind.
The image above shows 2009’s creation in the attraction. It’s a giant carousel – a “Scary Go Round” with LED lighting – that was made of gingerbread and other edible goodies.
Above is the Haunted Mansion Holiday gingerbread house from 2008. It was a coffin that automatically opened and closed.
Round and Round the handle goes, and pop goes Jack Skellington. This year they had Jack pop out of a huge gingerbread haunted house. This popped out in 2007.
The above picture shows 2006’s possessed Gingerbread house with giant arms breaking apart the Haunted Mansion from inside, and lifting off the roof of the Mansion.
This years killer Mansion has a Man eating Wreath with tentacles holding forks that go after scared gingerbread men, I couldn’t find a picture for 2005 to 2004 houses, sorry about that.
Above is the oogie bogy house as displayed inside the French Market.
I could not find the 2001’s or 2002’s pictures of the houses.
2001 – HM with arms counter balancing each other
2002 – Giant Sack of Presents in the shape of a mansion
I hope you enjoyed my trip into gingerbread houses past.
