While the exact nature of each display was not confirmed, most resort follow a similar pattern from year to year. Grand Floridian is home to the popular life-size gingerbread house, which also serves as a retail shop for gingerbread "singles" and other sweets. The Beach Club lobby traditionally displays a working carousel made from chocolate and other baked goods, while the BoardWalk hosts a replica of the restaurants and shops located along the resort exterior.
