Every month, Gideon’s Bakehouse releases a special cookie flavor. Check out all the spooky treats on the menu for October!
In June of 2020, we brought you news that the Award-winning Gideon’s Bakehouse was coming to Disney Springs this year.
In December 2020, Gideon’s Bakehouse opened its doors for a short-lived soft opening which was met with long wait times and eager enthusiasm by fans dying to get their hands on one of these decadent treats.
After a short, temporary closing, Gideon’s Bakehouse had its grand opening day on January 16, 2021 and guests were so excited to get their hands on these cookies they lined up early to get a place in the virtual queue.
THE VIRTUAL QUEUE WAS FINALLY CLOSED OFF LESS THAN AN HOUR AFTER GIDEON’S BAKEHOUSE OPENED. THE FINAL QUEUE WAS GIVEN AN 11 HOUR RETURN TIME!
Now 11 hours may seem a bit excessive to wait for an ordinary cookie, but Gideon’s Bakehouse fans know that these cookies are anything BUT ordinary.
Gideon’s Bakehouse’s original store opened in 2016 in the East End Market. With just $800 in the budget, no investors, and one employee, they quickly grew to become a world renowned bakery.
Gideon’s prides itself on it’s attention to detail and theming. Nothing is done by accident.
Even the gargoyle that sits at the top of the new bakery location has a great a backstory!
“AT 5:18 AM ON DECEMBER 18TH, 2020, A MYSTERIOUS CREATURE FLEW OVER OUR BAKEHOUSE AT DISNEY SPRINGS, STOLE OUR G, AND PERCHED ATOP THE BUILDING. HE HAS YET TO MOVE, AND WE HAVE A FEELING HE MIGHT STAY. WE ARE IN POSSESSION OF THE JOURNAL OF JONATHAN LINDWURM, THE ORIGINAL SHOP OWNER OF THE SPACE WE OCCUPY. WITH IT, WE HOPE TO UNCOVER THE HISTORY OF THIS NEW GUARDIAN OF GIDEON.”
