Today was my very first visit to Gideon’s Bakehouse at Disney Springs. He did not disappoint. Although I live near the Orlando location, I wanted to make sure I visited the Disney Springs location just for the experience.
To enter the Bakehouse, you must enter a virtual queue to which you will be texted when it is your turn to queue. Once you are in line, you wait until there is room in the display case for you and your group to enter. I was able to put my stroller inside the bakery.
I was entertained by the decor inside Gideon’s Bakehouse. It is gothic themed and dimly lit. There are interesting but creepy paintings all over the walls. The ambiance of this restaurant is top notch. There are even lights near the register that give off steam. Your cookie choice options are displayed when you enter with the cake options.
We deliberated long enough on what we wanted because the Coffee Cake Cookie which is a limited edition was sold out. We finally opted for a slice of Key Like Pie Cake. The Cookies and Cream cookie came next, but alas, we went with the slice of cake.
After paying and exiting the bakery, we found a nearby planter with an edge to sit and eat the cake with four people each ready with a fork in hand. My daughter and son have never had lime pie or cake, so I was interested to see their reaction. They both loved and devoured every bite they had. My mom and I decided that the outer part of the cake was a little dry, but it got wetter the deeper you went into the cake.
The cake was a layered cake with plenty of frosting and graham cracker topping to top it off. I honestly really enjoyed it and would eat with someone or a group of people again. It’s a huge slice of cake. I bet I could eat it on its own as a major indulgence although I don’t know if I should.
Next time I go I would like to try some cookies. I love trying Hot Cookie Hour from 2-3pm or 7-8pm. This is when the cookies are served hot to release all the chocolate that fills them. You can have the cookie with or without ice cream. What a treat that would be!
Gideon’s Bakehouse is an experience that should be had at Disney Springs. The cookies start at $6 each and there are a variety of flavors to be had. Disney lists all flavors and prices on its website. The cake slices start at $9 each and the flavors seem to be changing. A cast member told me that on Fridays they had a slice of Rainbow Pride Cake. Be sure to stop by and get in the virtual queue for a chance to enjoy this delicious and delicious restaurant.
