It's amazing what you can accomplish when you put your mind to it.

I remember when my family's buddy, Steve, was trying to bring a creation to Orlando. Gideon's Bakehouse was just an idea.... a vision. And BOY did that's vision reach 20/20....LITERALLY.

After a few years of success, business is BOOMING. So much so, the cookies that make your tummy the happiest, have found a new home, at the Happiest Place on earth. Well, atleast a hop, skip and a jump away.

Gideon's Bakehouse will now be opening in Disney Springs! 

According to the press release, "Gideon's Bakehouse plans to bring an expended menu of it's cookie and cake slices to The Landing at Disney Springs. Taking Advantage of this larger space, Gideon's will add it's own line of unique iced coffees, like the Original Peanut Butter Iced Coffee, built to paid flawlessly with their desserts. Guests can expect to see all of their favorite cookie flavors, plus new limited editions available exclusively during timed daily releases. Guests will be able to enjoy the ever-popular Coffee Cake Cookie (previously only available one month a year) every morning at Gideon's at Disney Springs. For those looking for something extra special after dinner, Gideon's is introducing a Hot Cookie Hour each evening. "We're also excited to bring more cake flavors to our new location, offering never-before-seen creations like our special line of Double Frosted Cakes," said owner Steve Lewis. "There are more than a few secrets we have up our sleeves, but you'll have to wait and see. It's not Gideon's if it isn't a little dark and mysterious."

What is probably one of my favorite stories of wishes and dreams, comes from owner and creator, Steve Lewis. He shared the "sweet" backstory of how Gideon's Bakehouse came to be. While purchasing what he thought was just an old, antique cookbook published in 1898, he realized that the margins were filled with 'faded notes and doodles from what appearred to be a young boy who had dreams of becoming a baker'. You guessed it, his name was Gideon. Thankfully, Steve decided to fulfill his wishes and pay tribute by opening, Gideon's Bakehouse.

Gideon's Bakehouse will open this year. There is no specific time yet, but I can't wait to see the lines outside! If you've never tried Gideon's, it will QUICKLY be the reason, outside of Mouse Ears of course, to visit Disney Springs over and over again.
