Hot Cookie Hour takes place every day at the Disney Springs bakeshop from 2 PM to 3 PM and 7 PM. Between those hours, Guests can visit Gideon’s Bakehouse to order warm cookies fresh out of the oven in select flavors.

If you are familiar with Gideon’s extremely popular cookies, you are probably also aware of the long lines and queue system that can sometimes make ordering up these sweet treats a bit of a process. To plan for long lines, you may want to show up before Hot Cookie Hour begins, that way by the time you reach the end of the line you will be ready to order warm cookies!

Gideon’s cookies are among the most popular desserts at Walt Disney World, with delicious homemade cookies coming in at nearly a half a pound in weight. For an even more indulgent take on these tasty cookies, opt to top your cookie with ice cream (especially if you are able to visit during Hot Cookie Hour!)

Ice cream at Gideon’s Bakehouse is handcrafted locally by Kelly’s Homemade Ice Cream, and a scoop of vanilla ice cream melting over a warm cookie that is fresh out of the oven is without a doubt the best way to enjoy Hot Cookie Hour at Walt Disney World.
