The 2017 Haunted Mansion Gingerbread House Is To Die For!

The 2017 Haunted Mansion Gingerbread House Is To Die For!

The holidays at Disneyland resort are amazing, especially in the case of The Haunted Mansion. Between October-January the ride is transformed into a Nightmare Before Christmas ride, featuring popular characters such as Jack and Sally. I myself have yet to experience this, but one day I will. Each year Disney also releases a new gingerbread house to go along with the temporary Mansion overlay, and this year's house looks ghoulishly delightful. The house prominently features the movie villain, Oogie Boogie.

The 2017 Haunted Mansion Gingerbread House Is To Die For!

"The gingerbread mansion this year has a bug problem – gingerbread bugs! But it's not a problem that a gingerbread Oogie Boogie can't fix. He pried open the roof of the gingerbread mansion and has his fork at the ready, happy to fix the infestation in the only way he would – by eating them. But quite a few bugs have gotten loose and are rampaging across the ballroom table, tormenting the gingerbread zombies there, who are forced to defend themselves with silverware!" commented Tim Wollweber, associate art director, and designer for this years gingerbread house!

So what does it take to make something so amazing? Well, here's a small list of ingredients that went into the house;

  • 200 pounds gingerbread
  • 200 pounds powdered sugar
  • 4 gallons egg whites
  • 1 gallon lemon juice
  • 30 pounds white chocolate
  • 50 pounds gum paste
  • 8 ounces (each) food coloring (blue, purple, orange, yellow, red)
  • 16 ounces green food coloring
  • 50 pounds fondant
  • 1/3 pound glitter
  • 200 hours Disney Culinary Magic

If you're heading to Disneyland during this holiday season, be sure to keep an eye out for the creation!
