While the Lobby, or Guest Entrance Area may not be quite as large as some of the other Deluxe Disney Resorts the Disney Beach Club Christmas Decorations are very elegant indeed. The Lobby area at the Beach Club is only 2 stories high so you will not find a Giant, Multistory Christmas Tree like you will see at the Grand Floridian or the Wilderness Lodge, you will find that there are many smaller trees spread around with plenty of Holiday Garland and exquisite Wreaths around every corner.
What makes the Disney Beach Club stand out at Christmas?
Something you will not find anywhere else! A full size Gingerbread Carousel right in the middle of the main entrance. Okay, so maybe it is not as large as what you would find in a major Theme Park but it is large enough that kids could ride one of the 4 Chocolate Horses, if this was allowed of course. It is a very impressive display of sugary, sumptuous treats and is definitely not something you would think of to be made from Gingerbread.
Ingredients used in the Carousel
- 36 lbs. of honey
- 96 lbs. of bread flour
- 100 pints of eggs
- 10 lbs. of spices
- 10 quarts of simple syrup
- 100 lbs. of icing
- 50 lbs. of dark chocolate
- 10 quarts of egg whites
- 100 lbs. of confectioner sugar
The Christmas Ambiance
Immediately when you enter the Grand Lobby, it feels, smells and looks like an amazing Holiday Celebration. Christmas music fills the air and the smells from the Gingerbread Carousel give your senses a fantastic burst of childhood memories.
