It is now halfway to Halloween and Disney World is celebrating in a big way!
On top of announcing Boo Bash, Gideon’s Bakehouse, the popular desert location at Disney Springs is celebrating in the ghoulish fun as well! Considering Gideon’s already has a steampunk theme that screams Halloween, to see them put out new cookies for the holiday is not a huge shock, but it does have our mouths watering.
The Disney Springs location already boasts hour waits for those visiting with a sweet tooth, and now, with their new Hand Pie cookie that has a Sweeney Todd ring to it will only have a limited run, the lines over the next few days are sure to be lengthy!
This new cookie is a part of Disney celebrating #halfwaytohalloween, you can see the other treats available around Walt Disney World for this special event here.
Disney Parks released a TikTok of the cookie, and as you can see below, it is truly unique to anything else the bakery has to offer — Which could make the hours of waiting worth it for this spooky yet decadent delight.
Find this decadent delight at Gideon’s Bakehouse only May 10, 11 and 12th ? #Disney #DisneySprings #Gideons #HalfwayToHalloween #Cookie
The line is already growing with hour-long virtual queue waits, so if you want this cookie, make sure you get to Disney Springs as soon as possible!
The official description of the restaurant reads:
Orlando’s very own Gideon’s Bakehouse is best known for their ingredient rich, from-scratch “almost half pound” cookies that take over 24 hours to create. Prepare to experience flavors ranging from their celebrated Original Chocolate Chip to addicting Pistachio Toffee.
Gideon’s brings an expanded menu of cookie and cake slices to Disney Springs, including a special line of Double Frosted Cakes and its own line of extraordinary iced drinks, including the Original Peanut Butter Iced Coffee.
The ever-popular Coffee Cake Cookie, previously only available one month a year, will be on sale every morning. And each evening, you can indulge in a Hot Cookie Hour to cure your sweet tooth after dinner. Gideon’s is also known for secret Limited Edition first come first serve desserts, offering you fun and unique surprises throughout the year.
If you want to try this cookie, or really, any cookie at Gideon’s Bakehouse, our tricks to avoid waiting around for hours are to go on a weekday during a slower time of the day (not during dinner or lunch), or, if you do encounter a long wait, head over to Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, or Disney’s Animal Kingdom for a few hours to pass the time in the most magical way possible!
