Exceeded the hype. Coincidentally was in Disney springs on their surprise opening day and only waited virtually for 1 hour then 15 in physical line. Best parts about cookie dough in a baked cookie. High cookies and kind of cheap considering size and Disney prices. A must get at Disney.

Pros:

Amazing cookies, huge sizes

Cons:

Long line, limit of 6 per transaction

Gideon's was very hyped up to me as a must do on my Disney trip. They did not disappoint. I already knew that there would be a virtual queue, so on my day at Disney Springs, Gideon's was my first stop. I added myself to the virtual queue, a two and a half hour wait, and then shopped around and went to my lunch reservation. Two hours later, I received a text and got in line. The wait to get inside was about 10 to 20 minutes. I was surprised by how many people did not know about the virtual queue and were discouraged to wait for these cookies. Those people were missing out, because the cookies are delicious. I ordered a cookies and cream and original. The cookies and cream was hands down my favorite. It was huge! I had to eat it in two or three different settings. So, so, worth the wait. Folks just need to do their research and come prepared. But the wait is definitely turning people away.

Pros:

Delicious cookies. Worth the price.

Cons:

Wait time.

To start with, the cookies are very, very good and I highly recommend getting the frosting cups too! However, the current procedure and long line really took away from the experience for me. The virtual wait was over two hours and then the in line wait was another 50 minutes. Kind of took away from the experience.

Pros:

Delicious one of a kind cookies

Cons:

The current wait times and procedures are frustrating and excessive

I heard lots of hype about this bakery before going to Disney Springs and it lived up to Every. Word. Gideon's and Disney belong together in every way, from their delicious baked goods to the amazing theming, Gideon’s lives up to the magic of Disney. The haunted mansion-esque ambience of the shop is so unique and creative, giving customers an immersive and ultra-themed experience rather than just a stop in a bakery. Only a few customers are able to fit into the store at one time so it feels like a personalized, custom made and almost intimate encounter as you enter to dimmed lights and the smell of warm chocolate. The friendly sales team greets you, guides you through the many options, prepares your order and then sends you back into reality and almost jarring daylight with a truly wonderful prize. There aren't a ton of choices in their products but what they do, they do well. The cookies are huge, larger than my palm, and the perfect blend of sweet and salty. Each bite is full of all the good stuff, be it big pieces of Oreo cookie, whole peanuts or mouthfuls of chocolate chips. There is no mistaking what flavor you got and you are definitely not left wanting by the taste or textures. I loved Gideon’s as an attraction, a curiosity and as a bakehouse.

Pros:

Shareable portions, amazing theming, both upscale and accessible taste profiles

Cons:

Wait time

The store is small but themed wonderfully. I wish the interior was a little lighter inside. It is hard to see for those of us who have vision issues. The cake slices and cookies are very large. The cake slices are about 5 inch square and the cookies are almost the size of a normal female hand. They are so full of chips that there is little dough. Everything we tried was tasty.

Pros:

Large portions Tasty cookies and cakes Worth the wait at least one time

Cons:

Long wait to get into shop. Huge portions are difficult to eat in one sitting. Very little \"dough\" in cookies, predominantly chips

I really love the theming! It’s a great little shop. The cookies are really delicious & so is the cake. Cake slices are huge & shareable. Over all I’m glad we got to experience this shop.

Pros:

The cookies & cake are excellent! They are huge and definitely shareable.

Cons:

It stays very busy. Some of the staff make you feel like you should hurry up and go. I didn’t feel like I could ask questions just felt very rushed ☹️
