1. Original Chocolate Chip Cookie – Gideon’s Bakehouse
One of the newest locations in all of Disney Springs is located in The Landing area and combines an immersive backstory and theming with sinfully good cookies. Gideon’s Bakehouse gained popularity with another location in Orlando and recently came to Disney Springs, bringing its hand crafted and unique cookies that take a full day to make and come in at nearly half a pound each. The interior of Gideon’s Bakehouse is gothic and dark, boasting a wide array of props and items that showcase the strange and slightly dreadful including intimidating portraits and all sorts of bottles and potions. Boasting a lengthy virtual queue most days since opening, Gideon’s Bakehouse features a small menu of cookies and cake slices including the popular Original Chocolate Chip Cookie. The outrageous cookie took fifteen years to perfect and combines different types of chocolates and vanillas and a texture reminiscent of cookie dough to create a truly unforgettable snack.
