Gingerbread houses may be associated with Christmas, but at Disneyland they are celebrating something spookier. The cookie buildings are being set up just in time for Halloween, courtesy of Tim Burton and The Haunted Mansion. The haunted pastry house marks the 17th season of the Haunted Mansion Holiday gingerbread house.

According to Executive Pastry Chef Jean-Marc Viallet and Lead Pastry Chef Edgar Urtola from Disneyland Resort's Central Bakery, the gingerbread (or ginger-dread, rather) house was created with 200 pounds of gingerbread, 200 pounds of powdered sugar, four gallons of egg whites, 50 pounds of fondant, and 30 pounds of white chocolate.

Collectively it made a six-foot-tall gingerbread house with more than 70 gingerbread bugs crawling out of the roof, which is designed to look like it's been pried open.
