Grand Gingerbread

(3 customer reviews)


There are few things that ring in the holidays for me like the beginning of construction of the gingerbread house at the Grand Floridian. It’s the sort of feat of engineering that you can only imagine if you’ve spent time at Disney. As the years have gone by, I’ve loved seeing so many resorts at Walt Disney World take on their own inspired versions of the gingerbread house – from Disney’s Beach Club’s carousel to the Boardwalk’s iconic edible self-portrait. That being said, to me the holidays will always be in large part standing in that towering lobby at the Grand Floridian, in the shadow of its Christmas Tree, and breathing in the smell of the world’s most awe-inspiring Gingerbread House. My desire to bring that moment home for myself and you inspired this scent.

While I am forever grateful that certain, everyday smells can ground us in this place that we all love and call “Home,” I, of course, have no ownership of any element of Walt Disney World or the Walt Disney Company – nor does the Walt Disney Company or any of its affiliates endorse any of my products…much less my nostalgic sense of smell.

WARNINGS: Never leave a burning candle unattended. Keep wax free of matches, wick trimmings, and other flammable materials. Keep wick centered and trimmed to ¼” to prevent smoking and soot build up on container or other items. Burn only on stable, heat-resistant surfaces for not more than 4 hours at a time. Keep out of drafts. Discard when only ½” of wax remains in bottom of container. Do not move candle while burning or if wax is hot. Keep out of reach of children and pets. Failure to follow any of these instructions could result in fire hazard, injury, or smoke damage and neither the seller nor any persons affiliated therewith shall bear any liabilities or responsibilities arising or resulting therefrom or associated therewith. Purchase or use of any items from this shop constitutes agreement to use them in accordance with these warnings.

    The Grand Gingerbtead is reminiscent of the Amazing Gingerbread House proudly standing in the Grand Floridian during the winter holidays. We love this candle for it’s true likeness of what it smells like to enter the Grand Floridian in December.

    This is my favorite of the holiday scents. In fact, I had to reorder. So I know I will be ordering more than one for me for next holiday if available. Definitely will be gifting out these treasures too. Everyone I have gifted these candles to have loved them. I have a wish list of scents I still want to try. What I like is that these candles are not over powering. Most over the counter ones I get seem to be too overpowering. I love the extra attention and detail in the product and packaging. If you like candles, definitely give these a try.

    This scent takes me back to Christmas at the Grand Floridian Resort and the wonderful smell of the Gingerbread house that infuses with the wonderful smells of the Grand Flo lobby. That sweet scent just takes me away. Whenever I want to feel like I am at Disney, sitting in the Grand Flo lobby, listening to the piano player or the band while Cinderella and Prince charming share a dance by the giant Christmas tree overlooking the grand Gingerbread House, I melt this wax melt, close my eyes, and I am there! Perfection!
