Gingerbread House

With all the content, the developers allowed the players to cook traditional holiday recipies. And that has resulted in applause for them from the community. Among all other traditions of Christmas, the Gingerbread House is one that is loved by all. You can make it in the game with just a few simple steps. For that, you’ll have to get the required items.

Even though it is a 5-star recipe, it doesn’t recover as much energy as your usual 5-star recipes. And that is because it uses most of the common ingredients. Even if you don’t want it to recover your energy or anything of that sort, you can use it as a decorative piece at your home.

Making The Gingerbread House

It is not any ordinary recipe. Gingerbread House is a 5-star Recipe in Disney Dreamlight Valley because you’ll need a total of 5 different ingredients to make it. Now if you have gone through our list of Energy Restoring Recipies, you’ll know that some recipes can restore up to 4961 energy. They are some of the best 5-star energy-recovering recipes. But that is not the case with the Gingerbread house. The Gingerbread House will only restore a total of 1,460 energy.

We have already mentioned that you need 5 ingredients to prepare the recipe. They are

  • 1x Egg
  • 1x Ginger
  • 1x Sugarcane
  • 1x Vanilla
  • 1x Wheat

As it is a simple ‘Gingerbread house’, you don’t need any vegetables or Meat of any sort to make it. Once you have all of these ingredients ready, you’ll need Coal to cook the recipe. You’ll find Coal at Kristoff’s Stall. With all ready, head to Remy’s Restaurant. If you don’t remember where it is, you’ll be led there by a quest, or you can head to the Ratatouille Realm and find his restaurant there.

When you enter his Restaurant, you’ll get to cook the Gingerbread House. Once you make it using the ingredients, the recipe will become available in the Recipes section. There, you can select the recipe and press the ‘Autofill’ button. It will automatically fill the pot with the ingredients of the recipe. And there you have it, you will have your Gingerbread House ready to eat or to Gift to your favorite characters. Make sure to know which one of them likes such gifts before you head towards them.

Ingredients Of Gingerbread House

Now that you have learned the recipe for the Gingerbread house, you need to know where to get the ingredients in Disney Dreamlight Valley. That is because you might have enough ingredients for one or two of these. But if you want to make them in bulk to gift to different characters, then they won’t be enough. You’ll need to fill your reserves of the raw materials of the recipe.

In Disney Dreamlight Valley, all different ingredients are locked behind certain achievements. For example, you will have to rebuild Goofy’s Stall to get the Sugercane from him. We’ll get to it all in a while. Now, most of these items are quite easy to find. You won’t have any problems looking for them, and with no time, you’ll have enough ingredients to decorate your house with spare Gingerbread Houses.


The Eggs are available to purchase at Chez Remy’s kitchen. That is where you’ll often find ingredients that won’t be available in any other place in the game. If you want any rare ingredients, Chez Remy is your guy/rat. As he cooks some of the best meals, he will have access to unique ingredients. Okay, so you’ll get to unlock Chez Remy during the quest ‘A Restaurant Makeover’. After that, you can buy the Egg for a total of 220 Star Coins.


All of the ingredients of the Gingerbread House are rather easy to find. But the hardest to get to is the Ginger itself. It is found in The Forgotten Lands. You’ll have to unlock the area by clearing the Giant Night Thorns, which cost a whopping 15,000 Dreamlight to clear. Once you have cleared, you can head there and look for the Ginger. It will be in the Purple Grass region. There will be small green plants that are shooting out of the grass.


You’ll get the Sugarcane quite early in the game. You’ll need to unlock Goofy’s Stall by rebuilding it for him. He has his stalls in different biomes or realms of the game. But to get the Sugarcane, you’ll have to head toward the Dazzle Beach realm. There, you’ll have to pay a total of 1,000 Star Coins to get him to open his stall. Once he has his stall ready, you can purchase the Sugarcane Seeds. If you don’t want to wait for the crops to grow to utilize it, you can directly get the Sugarcane. It will then cost you a total of 29 Star Coins.


Unlike other ingredients, you can’t find Vanilla from any of the shops in the game. It can only be acquired in the Sunlit Plateau. The area where you’ll find Vanilla is in a part of the Sunlit Plateau, which is blocked. And like the Forgotten Lands, you will have to unlock by spending 7,000 Dreamlight. When you get there, you have to look for plants that have green leaves and yellow flowers. When you harvest it, you will have Vanilla in your inventory.


You’ll find the Wheat quite early in the game. For that, you’ll have to unlock Goofy’s Stall, which is located in the Peaceful Meadow. If you don’t want to buy a ton of Wheat, then you can always get its seeds. The Wheat itself costs 3 Star coins, whereas the seeds only cost 1 Star coin. You can then plant them, and they will grow up in no time. In no time, you’ll have a bunch of Wheat available to make the Gingerbread House.

Final Words

The game isn’t limited to making recipes or gifting them. You can meet with some iconic Disney characters like Minne Mouse, Donald Duck, and many others characters. Not only that, you can have different Animal Companions. Not only that, you can design your own Avatar however you like it. That will be your Disney character. In addition to all that, you can cook tons of dishes like Vegetarian Stew.
