What would you do if you wake up in your Disney World Resort and walk into the lobby to walk towards Magic Kingdom and notice a baby giraffe staring at you? Sounds a little terrifying, doesn’t it? Well, what if we told you the giraffe was actually a huge gingerbread cookie shaped into the majestic animal?

Disney World resorts are all currently decorated for the holidays with garlands, decorations, trees and more. Some resorts are just as spectacular as Main Street, USA!
