PHOTOS - Gideon's Bakehouse opens at Disney Springs

Opening day at Gideon's Bakehouse Disney Springs

Gideon's Bakehouse, the legendary local Orlando gourmet cookie store, is now open in The Landing at Disney Springs.

Gideon's offers a range of nearly half-pound gourmet cookies (including seasonal varieties), cake slices and coffees.

Cookies are $6 each, and cake slices are $9 each. There is a limit of 6 cookies person, and due to high demand, a virtual queue is in place to enter.

The interior design offers a level of detail that rivals some of Disney's best, loaded with thousands of real books and custom artwork. It takes on an intimate feel reminiscent of something found in Harry Potter or the Haunted Mansion. Designers even took a cue from Disney's Main Street U.S.A. and are pumping the cookie smell out into the street outside.

The counter features a fire-smoke effect.

As for the cookies - they are without doubt the best cookies we have ever tried. Gideon's needs to be on your list for Disney Springs shopping - nothing else to say.

You can find Gideon's in The Landing, just across from Wine Bar George and Raglan Road. Operating hours are from 10am daily.

There were 2 cookies in the box.

Was there just the one cookie in the box?

I finally got to try a cookie today! Classic Chocolate Chip. I'm not a Cookie Snob/Connoisseur, but I really liked it, fresh, moist and chewy thought so many chips were going to overpower the dough, but you can still taste it.

It is walk-up in person to an employee with an iPad.

So for those that have done it, how does one join the virtual queue at Gideon's?

I get that. They have non-chip flavors that you might like! No chips on their coffee cake cookie and that one was my favorite!

They need to put a police station in next door. And they will never Close again!

Until they put oatmeal raisin on the menu, I will pass.

I can just already tell I wouldn't like the cookies because they have WAY too many chocolate chips (or other types of chips for other cookies). I like my cookies to be sparsely scattered with chips as a flavor enhancer, not as the entire flavor. That's obviously personal preference, though, and not any objective indicator of quality.

Both are extremely good. I've been through the entire menu now, and it is well worth the hype.

2 people? I ain't sharing.

UNCgolfJan 20, 2021

I still think the cookies look bad, but the cake slices look fantastic.

And the Oreo cake. $9 per piece, but easily big enough for 2 people.

Here is the Double Frosted cake slice - Chocolate, Peanut Butter and Banana.
