Best known for their half-pound cookies that take over 24 hours to make, Gideon’s is one of a kind. Crowds flocked to Disney Springs when they opened a new location on Disney property.
While you’ll find another location in the Audubon Park Garden District, the Disney location is worth a trip for the Disney-inspired sweet treats.
