So we arrived yesterday driving and when we got to the hotel I realized I left all my shirts hanging in my closet at home! Noooooo
I pre plan my outfits and have Disney shirts that I love and have accumulated. Her friend didn’t arrive at the airport until 3 so we had an hour to do some last minute shirt shopping. Attempted to go to the outlets on International Drive but parking was not happening. Found an Old Navy outlet and made that work for a couple shirts. After picking up friend we hit up Disney Springs expecting it to be a nightmare since it was Mother’s Day and a Sunday. Fortunately it was not crazy yet. We got there at 4:30 and left at 7 just as all the crowds were coming. Perfect timing. We were able to get into Gideon’s after a virtual 3 hour wait then 10 min in line. We were disappointed. Only spent 5 min in the shop. They got cake slices and I got the cookies and cream cookie. The cookie was delicious but they did not enjoy too much the cake slices. So in the end we voted Gideon’s “overrated”!

We enjoyed Gideon's both cookies and cake but with the wait it really is overrated. It was definitely a one and done thing for us. Everglazed Donuts on the other hand is amazing and little to no line.

Following along too! Curious if you’re park hopping and how that all works now with the park reservation system that’s in place.
Have a Magical Day.
