Every year, it’s always exciting to see what Disney has in store for the Haunted Mansion Holiday and its hand-made Gingerbread House. Each season, fresh batches of gingerbread are baked at Disneyland and assembled into fanciful confections that would make Jack Skellington’s head spin.
This year, the sugary abode will be literally ripped from its foundations as a giant gingerbread spider suspended from the rafters takes the prized treat for its own.
According to Disney twenty-three, the spider will have glowing eyes, movable mandibles and a candy stained-glass thorax; in total it will measure approximately three feet tall with the house below pushing an additional three feet in height. Upwards of 200-500 pounds of gingerbread are baked each year to make the edible confections.

Plus, the Dia de los Muertos-themed Pixar flick COCO will once again take over Paradise Gardens bringing with it food and entertainment.
