Every year since 2001, Disney has a fun tradition of unveiling a brand new gingerbread masterpiece for their Haunted Mansion Holiday attraction and this year’s confectionery creation is inspired by Sally from THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS.


Headless Horseman debuts, Fantasy in the Sky returns, Ghost Galaxy confirmed and more this Halloween Time

Featuring a hand-stitched motif similar to Sally herself, the house will be created with actual gingerbread and icing. What exactly goes into making it? Well just a few hundred pounds of ingredients including…

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

According to Tim Wollweber, Associate Art Director for Disney Parks, “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.”

The sweet tribute will be visible in the ballroom scene of the Haunted Mansion Holiday starting September 9, 2016!

Disney’s Halloween Time takes place at the Disneyland Resort this year from September 9 through October 31, 2016.
