Gideon's Bakehouse at Disney Springs will reopen Sunday, September 3, 2023.

The guest-favorite cookie shop has been closed for three days due to an air conditioning failure. Operating hours today are 10:00am - 11:00pm.

A post from Gideon's owner Steve on Instagram says, "Gideon's at Disney Springs will reopen today! I got absolutely flooded with supportive messages over the last three days, and I am grateful for your kindness. There's nothing quite like the weird little Gideon's community. Special love to my team for pulling through. Thank you, as always Patrick, for pushing so hard. Those who have had the pleasure of meeting him know he's a rare gem to the universe. Byran and the kitchen team killed it (per usual) and kept the glory of our East End family moving at full speed throughout the madness. It was one of those events that tests you, and it's a gift to see people that care shine so bright in our forever darkness. ??"

A lot less waiting also! :) You're a baker. Do you have a website? My wife loves sweets, but me not just once in awhile.

Well the ones that we were sold where already a day old. I am a baker that has made thousands of cookies in my career. I know a day what a day old cookie looks and tastes like. Plus the cake slice that we got was much too sweet, and this is someone who love cotton candy. Also, the icing on the cake was grainy. Not impressed with them at all. My standards might be higher, but my daughter didn't like them at all either.

I’ve never had their cookies because I’m not willing to wait an hour and a half for a cookie. Any tips on how to get them without waiting forever?

The Gideons cookies are fantastic. I don’t understand how people don’t like them.

We enjoy Amorette's a lot better. We really don't see what all the fuss is about Gideon's..

I would say it depends on their lease agreement, but probably Disney. This summer has been really rough on Floridian air conditioners. My parents & grandparents A/Cs went out this summer and the resort I work at has had countless compressors go out

So who would be in charge of the A/C system and getting it working? Disney or Gideon's?

Yikes. 🙁 Hope the AC issue gets resolved soon. Getting a couple of cookies from Gideon's is something I look forward to on every WDW visit. As always, thank you, appreciate the info.
