It’s getting ready to be that time of year again! Fall at the Disneyland Resort is always exciting, because the park begins to transform. One of the most anticipated transformations is that of The Haunted Mansion. Each year, it receives its annual Nightmare Before Christmas overlay featuring Jack Skellington, and Disney Parks Blog just released images of the Ballroom scene centerpiece gingerbread house. For the past 15 years, the Ballroom scene of Haunted Mansion Holiday has featured a creepily delightful gingerbread house, and this year the house is themed and designed in the style of Nightmare’s own Sally.

The gingerbread house consists of:
• 200 pounds gingerbread
• 200 pounds powdered sugar
• 4 gallons egg whites
• 1 gallon lemon juice
• 50 pounds fondant
• 1/3 pound glitter

Tim Wollweber, the Associate Art Director for Disney Parks that designed this year’s house, says, “The whole structure has been cobbled and stitched together from other different gingerbread houses and treats. But it appears that sometime during the house’s construction, a gingerbread ghoul was entombed! Apparently he’s eager to sew himself up inside – much like another mansion graveyard ghoul you’ve probably seen”.
