It’s The Grand Opening of Gideon’s Bakehouse and MickeyBlog Is There
A delicious good morning to you Disney friends! If you’ve been following along with us here at MickeyBlog you’ll know that today is the Grand Opening of Gideon’s Bakehouse at Disney Springs! We had a chance to “experience” this whimsical magical purveyor of 1/2 lb. cookies during its soft opening a few weeks ago and are delighted to be back!
We arrived early this morning at Gideon’s Bakehouse and were excited to be 5th in line!
All visitors waiting in line were handed this Opening Day postcard which like Gideon’s itself has a slightly magical, esoteric feel to it.
The postcards outline the special treats you’ll find throughout Gideon’s during the month of January. We can’t wait to tuck into delicious treats like the Coffee Cake cookie that we’re told sell out by lunch time and one of the bakery’s famous peanut butter iced coffees!
Fans of Gideon’s are out in full force this morning but a friendly employee was there to help organize a virtual queue. This meant that those further back in line could enjoy the shops of Disney Springs while waiting!
We even had a chance to wish the owner Steve a “Happy Opening!”
It wasn’t long before we were able to head inside! We absolutely love the aesthetic of the shop’s interior! It is definitely worth checking out during your visit.
Vintage signboards outline the menu and pricing! Though $6 may seem a bit hefty for a cookie trust me when I say that they’re HUGE!
Though the cookies are the star of the show, don’t overlook their incredible cakes which can be ordered up by the slice like the True Red Velvet pictured above!
Also on offer was this towering Peanut Butter Banana Cake!
And a Florida Favorite – Key Lime Pie but in cake form!
Be sure to take some time to explore the inside of the shop which is filled with lots of unusual details!
Including this delightfully macabre artwork!
There was a whole host of awesome mementos for guests including these Gideon’s facemasks!
We love the details on the face mask complete with Gideon’s winged gargoyle-style logo!
We also nabbed one of these awesome Gideon’s t-shirts which feature the Gargoyle that you’ll find perched high above the entrance to Gideon’s.
These will be available for visitors to Disney Springs to purchase to commemorate your visit.
Grand Opening guests were treated to special lithograph prints of the Gideon’s logo!
The posters were signed by the artist.
They were also numbered with only 1000 being handed out on opening day.
We absolutely love this artwork and think it makes such a fantastic keepsake!
Our MickeyBlogger Elyssa picked up one of Gideon’s famous Peanut Butter iced coffees!
In Elyssa’s words it is, “insanely great!” which we think couldn’t be more fitting!
If you’re thinking of heading over to Disney Springs today to check out Gideon’s for yourself then be prepared to wait! When we last checked the wait to get inside was in excess of 8 hours with the line wrapping around the building before winding its way as far as Chicken Guy! The shop is open daily from 10 am – 7pm!
