Holiday Decorations around Epcot

I made a short trip to the World this past weekend (Nov. 12-14),
mostly for the end of the Food & Wine Festival. I couldn't help but
notice, however, that Christmas decorations are popping up all over.
Here are some of the more prominent holiday displays I noticed as I wandered around the park.

Starting at International Gateway:

Gingerbread House at Grand Floridian

Each year, the lobby of Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa hosts a magnificently festive creation -- a 16-foot-tall gingerbread house baked with 1,050 pounds of honey that takes more than 160 hours to decorate.

I had the chance to see the house the other day as it was
near completion. Here are some photos taken from a variety of angles. Note the detail -- can you spy Tinker Bell in one of the windows?

I only wish I could share the delicious, spicy aroma with you! It was heavenly!

The Gingerbread House opened to the public yesterday, November 15, and is now open daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., selling gingerbread cookies and other holiday confections.

Disney Park Wallpapers for your Desktop!

Did you know All Ears® has a Disney Desktop section? Now it has 56 new wallpapers are waiting for you, including Disneyland, California Adventure, Walt Disney World, and the Disney Cruise Line!

One of the great things about these is: you'll find the big icons like Cinderella Castle and Spaceship Earth, but you also get some hidden little details in attractions or different views of them. We're also building up our resorts section and in fact, we expanded the Grand Floridian in this update. We also added holiday photos sprinkled throughout each section.

All Ears wants to give you access to favorites that don't get the attention they deserve.

Foodies, your time is here! Do you need not just a Disney fix, but you're thinking of Cheddar Cheese soup? We have a Disney restaurant wallpaper section featuring these special places and some signature dishes.

Another nice touch to these are: they all came from photos taken by the All Ears team, including our staff photographers.

Below, you can see me taking a break from getting menus to get pictures for the wallpapers section:

The rest of the team would like you to know that their camera equipment is much more modern.

As always, please give All Ears your feedback. Do you like these wallpapers? Let us know! Do you need different sizes or want to see certain attractions, shows, restaurants, events"¦.? Let us know!

Enjoy! Fill that Disney fix! And when your friends and family have one, send them to our Disney desktop wallpapers!

Deb and the team (including me) are headed for Walt Disney World very soon, so we'll be getting more great images for you. Make sure to say hello if you see me, I have my own All Ears team trading card to hand out too!!!!

And since I'm writing this on Thanksgiving, thank you so much for supporting All Ears!
