Beach Club’s 2013 Gingerbread Carousel

One of the most detailed holiday displays in Walt Disney World can be found at the Beach Club. Each year, a carousel adorns the lobby, featuring highly decorated horses, the Fab Five (plus Tinkerbell), and Hidden Mickeys. Many of the pictures can be clicked on for a larger few, so have fun exploring!

Aside from the carousel, you can also find a chocolate lighthouse and underwater castle, which is very reminiscent of The Little Mermaid.

The moving carousel features four horses: Snofia, Pixie, Jingle, and Holiday.

A fifth horse sits aside from the carousel, and this year was themed to Captain Jack Sparrow. The detail on this horse is quite stunning.

Hidden Mickey Spoilers Ahead!

While these aren’t all the Hidden Mickeys, I spotted several for those of you who can’t make it down to spot for yourself.

This is truly a beautiful display to see in person. While I miss the BoardWalk Inn’s fireplace display of holidays past, I would certainly be more depressed to lose this gorgeous carousel.

Is the Gingerbread Carousel at the Beach Club your favorite WDW holiday display? How do you like this year’s version?

  1. do you know how long these usually stay up for?

  2. I think through the New Year, possibly the first weekend following the holiday. It might be based on how the holiday falls.

  3. that carousel looks beautiful! I would love to see it and might have to go in December next year…
