Disney’s Yacht Club, Beach Club & Boardwalk Gingerbread Carousel and Holiday Decorations, Swan & Dolphin Christmas Tree & Chocolate Santa – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

This past week, we spent several days at the Boardwalk area resorts, taking photos and video – and we brought friends to see the Christmas displays as well. It really is worth the time! We enjoyed a visit to Beaches & Cream – 14 of us, which was a tight squeeze, on Sunday before touring. The first resort we’ll be sharing here is Disney’s Beach Club (below, left), which has a beautiful gingerbread carousel (below, right).

 

Every year, each of the horse’s names – and sometimes themes – change. Last year, the horse next to the carousel was named Lulu, and themed to Beaches & Cream. This year, the horse is named Ariel (below, left). Nearby, gingerbread and other treats are sold during certain times of day (and if the store is closed, then you can find the goods in the Beach Club Marketplace). There are decorative accents on the store that include Mickey’s head as well as gingerbread men in various forms of being eaten (below, right). The “bricks” are made of gingerbread too!

 

Donald and Goofy (below, left) are among the characters that can be found at the base of the carousel (below, right). Four horses are on the carousel, each with a name that symbolizes the design. One horse is named Holly, and that the design is of holly.

 

Last year, there were a total of three bonus displays, this year there are two. One is Ariel the horse, and the other is a castle with Snow White (below, left). The trees and garland are themed to the sea – ornaments include seahorses and fish (below, right).

Video #1 – Disney’s Beach Club Gingerbread Carousel and Holiday Decorations 2011 Walt Disney World – This is the Gingerbread Carousel and decorations at Disney’s Beach Club Resort. It contains 2011 pieces of gingerbread and much more!

At Disney’s Yacht Club Resort (below, left), the train display has changed some from previous years. First, we  enjoyed the nautical theme of the lobby (below, right).

 

The train display is a seaside village on one side (below, left), and a child builds a snowman in front of his house (below, right).

 

The other side includes quite a few Disney Department 56 figures and buildings (below, left), featuring characters such as Mickey and Minnie. We always enjoy finding all the details in the train set (below, right).

 

Video #2 – Disney’s Yacht Club Holiday Train Set and Christmas Tree 2011 Walt Disney World – This is the Holiday Train Set and Christmas Tree at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort! Holiday decorations and the Christmas tree are also in the video.

Our next stop was Disney’s Boardwalk Resort, which hosts a Christmas tree in the green (below, left). Once inside, the gingerbread display features Stitch first, and Donald reprises his role in the chimney (below, right). Daisy has been part of the display for a number of years, but isn’t included for 2011.

 

Next door, a giant gingerbread house called “Stitch’s Bakery” sells gingerbread houses and stollen (below, left). Two trees flank the nearby fireplace, and garland hangs above (below, right).

 

Chef Stitch is up to his mischievous ways (below, left). Donald, stuck in the chimney, roasts his feet and bottom over an open fire (below, right).

 

Video #3 – Disney’s Boardwalk Gingerbread Display and Christmas Decor 2011 Walt Disney World – This is the Gingerbread Display at Disney’s Boardwalk Resort! Holiday decorations and the Christmas tree are also in the video.

Our next stops were the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resorts (below, left). This new snowman family is a great place for photos, and is situated closer to the Swan (below, right).

 

A deer grazes in the cotton next to the towering tree (below, left). The train set circled the base, with the Dolphin name on it (below, right).

  

The tree reaches to the vaulted ceiling (below, left). At the Swan Resort, a chocolate Santa is back, with a larger display that is also created from chocolate (below, right).

 

The display (below, left) consists of Santa Claus, a tree with a huge pile of gifts, a fireplace, a train and 3 million calories! The train (below, right) is new for this year. This is a great display, and we enjoy the decorations in the lobby as well. This is the display’s second year!

 

Video #4 – Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Holiday Displays 2011 Christmas Tree, Chocolate Santa – These are the Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Holiday Displays including the giant Christmas Tree and Train Set at the Dolphin and all Chocolate Santa display at the Swan!
