This sweet spot, known for its massive, loaded cookies, iced coffee, and cakes, has been a HUGE hit ever since it opened at Walt Disney World’s shopping and dining district. It’s even had to implement a virtual queue system (not unlike those we see for entering popular shops around Disney World)!
Of course, lines were long on opening day, but the hype surrounding Gideon’s is still strong one week after opening. Today, while strolling around Disney Springs, we entered into Gideon’s virtual waitlist (we were craving a Peanut Butter Crunch cookie), and noticed an exceptionally long wait time…180 minutes!
Yeah, that’s THREE. WHOLE. HOURS. for some cookies! Madness! Admittedly, Disney Springs has been VERY busy this week (it is the week between Christmas and New Year’s, after all). But still! You don’t even have to wait that long to ride Flight of Passage at Animal Kingdom these days!
Once it was your time for the waitlist, the line at the bakehouse itself seemed totally manageable, however.
So, if you find that there’s a virtual waitlist for Gideon’s when YOU get to Disney Springs, don’t sweat it. Sign up, do some shopping over at World of Disney, get some drinks over at Jock Lindsey’s, and enjoy yourself! If you are patient, the cookies will come to you! And trust us, the wait is WORTH it! 😉
