It’s hard to think that anything could be added to make the lobby of Disney’s Wilderness Lodge more impressive than it already is, but the Wilderness Lodge Bakery Team has done it.

The Wilderness Lodge gingerbread log cabin officially opened today, and is ready to delight and entertain guests. And, to make the gingerbread cabin even sweeter (pun intended), there’s a stand filled with holiday treats and beverages for sale right next to the display. It’s a win-win.

The gingerbread cabin sits toward the back of the main lobby, and fills the space next to the bubbling spring. According to the Bakery Team, the cabin was inspired by the turn-of-the-century National Park lodges. The gingerbread cabin, like the gingerbread display at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, has hidden Mickeys integrated into the design. There are five hidden Mickeys on the cabin at Wilderness Lodge, and guests were already trying to hunt them all down on opening day.

Humphrey the Bear is featured in front of the cabin, and it seems we’ve caught him hanging a string of Christmas lights as he prepares for the holidays. I love that you can find Humphrey in locations throughout the resort.

A small figurine featuring Mickey, Minnie, and Donald unloading Christmas trees sits along with a Norfolk Pine wrapped in a buffalo check tree skirt on one side of the cabin.

The other side of the cabin is decorated with a silk poinsettia Mickey wreath.

If guests look closely, they’ll find Chip and Dale out back keeping warm by a campfire.

And that campfire looks just like the topper that you’ll find on the incredibly yummy Campfire Cupcake ($5.49) available at the resort’s counter service restaurant, Roaring Fork. If you’ve not had this cupcake, please do. You won’t regret it.

The holiday treat stand has some of the same seasonal merchandise items that are currently being sold in the shops throughout Walt Disney World.

A dated, limited edition gingerbread cabin Disney trading pin is available at the holiday treats stand, and sells for $17.99. I love that it features Humphrey hanging his lights.
