It's True...BabyCakes NYC Now in Downtown Disney!

| 58 Comments

disney pic2.jpegOk, I have to take a deep breath. Please excuse typos and bad grammar as I'm writing this at lightening speed.

I've been holding this secret in for about 2 years and I was hoping to keep this on the hush for another week till we got our decor redone but the news seems to have leaked through Twitter. So, surprise! We've opened the newest location of BabyCakes NYC in Downtown Disney, Orlando. I know, I know. I'm totally freaking out too.

Here's the scoop: a couple years ago I was approached by famed restauranteur Larry Levy of Spiaggia fame (among many, many many others) to partner with him on a project to bring healthier food to Disney. McDonalds was given the boot and BabyCakes was in, along with his other restaurants Pollo Campero and Fresh Apeel. After much planning, building, fussing and fixing we got this guy opened last Friday night.

So why have I waited so long to tell you? The truth is, we are doing some cosmetic changes to the space and I wanted it to look absolutely perfect before I showed any of you. I mean, this is HUGE news, nothing should be out of place!!! But I've quieted my inner nit-picking perfectionist because with Thanksgiving just a week away, I assume a lot of you Floridians would prefer to have the chance to have some cookies, cupcakes and donuts baked fresh for your occasion instead of shipping them from New York.

A couple things. First and foremost we do not have a sign outside the building yet but you can find us in the building marked Fresh Apeel--our store is in the right hand nook. Second thing: our phones are not working just yet so you'll have to email Emily at DTD@babycakesnyc.com for all correspondence temporarily. Yes! You can order a birthday cake, donuts, cookies, brownies and cupcakes!

So here I am. Posting from Downtown Disney. It all seems so surreal--on my walk home from work every night I watch kids doing the Cupid Shuffle and the Conga. Everyone is so joyful and happy. Is this really my life?

Wow.

Hi! I am so excited about your new location at Downtown Disney. There was a lot of confusion online about whether your store was opening in Florida or California, since Downtown Disney is located in both places. Thank you for your Press Relase, this does help, but just to let you know your picture is a picture of the Castle in California - so this might be more confusing for some readers.

Thank you!

I'm hoping to get down to Disney Saturday night! Is there a grand opening planned?

Thank you Meredith!

And yes, grand opening is December 10th! We are open 7 days a week from 8am-11pm, though! Stop by on Saturday!

Also, we're Tweeting! @DTDBabyCakesNYC

Please tell me you're also keeping the secret that your opening one in Downtown Disney Disneyland. Please!

Actually the picture they show is Cinderella's castle, which is in Walt Disney World. Sleeping Beauty's Castle is the one in Disneyland. It is shorter and pink.
It is harder to tell since the photo is small.

Congrats on the opening! Can't wait to go here again and again and again!

What are your hours? I am coming by ASAP! I am freaking out with excitement!

Emily! Emily! Emily!

Wow. Congrats! 2 new locations in a year? plus a deal with M Cafe? You are pretty cool.

Now I have to plan a trip to Florida...and New York (haven't been to the "original") but for now, the downtown LA bakery is my place to go. :D

Now all you have to do is have a BabyCakes at DTD Anaheim!! That would be the best thing that could ever happen to me. ;)

Congrat nonetheless ;)

YESSSSSSSSSS, never been so happy to live in Florida.

I live in NJ and go to the bakery in NYC all the time but I am from Orlando and visit there frequently. Sooo excited that when I am there for Christmas next month I will be able to visit babycakes at downtown disney and pick up holiday treats! I will be sure to let all my family and friends who live in Orlando know to check you guys out!

Thank you all for the kind words. We are thrilled to be here! Our hours of operation are 8am until 11pm daily. We look forward to seeing each and every one of you soon!

yea we are.... whooo!! we all rocked it with a GREAT team..

So excited! The grand opening is on my birthday...and we'll be in DisneyWorld!! Guess I know where I'll be getting my birthday cupcakes :-)

this is sooo exciting! congrats!!!
j.

yeeeeyyyyyy im happy for the opening! it was great meeting people like you guys the team is awsome! regards to sabrina rachel brandi and emily! your all precious!

Pretty please tell me there'll be a Babycakes at Disneyland's Downtown Disney someday...you'd think Disneyland would be allergy-friendly (everyone in California seems to have some kind of sensitivity), but it's not. AT ALL. Disney's foods department, in Anaheim at least, seems hellbent on contaminating EVERYTHING plant-based with dairy. (I'm an annual pass holder and go several times a month, so they're losing a small fortune on me.)

I am so excited by this news!!! My 3 year-old son has multiple food allergies (milk,eggs,wheat, poultry, peanut, treenut, etc) and we're leaving for Disney on Saturday. It will be so wonderful for him to be able to pick something out of a bakery case and be able to eat it! You've made this mama so very happy!

Sooooo excited for this. I heard about this on WDW Today (I see your post Hochberg) and was wondering how peanut free everything is, I have a son who is allergic. We'll be there starting next week for 10 days and will definitely be stopping by.

Welcome to Florida. We just moved here in August and are desperate for some good gluten free baked goods like we got in NJ.
Best of luck on your new venture.
See you soon!

Oh my! This is the best news i've gotten in such a long time! I'll be stopping by as soon as possible!
Wish i could work here, i'd be in lovvvve

Hi-five Mickey with one hand; snack on a gluten-free cookie with the other. Sounds like the Happiest Place on Earth just got better. Congrats!

I am SO excited about this I can't even stand it!!! I'm coming to Florida next week and have been planning my vegan restaurant destinations. As I fell in love with Babycakes on a trip to NYC, I'll be sure to rekindle that romance in Disney...

I am so very glad you are in DTD. My son has very severe dairy allergy and are excited to have some variation to our bakery options!!!Thank you!!!

I was at your location today in DTD and had a brownie cupcake with mint frosting. OMG!!! It was absolutely the best!! I can't believe that it was gluten and dairy free! I will definitely be back.

Stopped by today and everything was delicious :) I think your location in DTD is especially perfect, because you'll have all types of people stopping by tasting great vegan treats!

I just online to find the hours!! WOO HOO I know hwere I am having breakfast this morning!!!! I have been waiting for this opening ever since a girl I go to culinary school with said you were opening here!!!
I wish you MUCH success here at DTD in Orlando. WE needed this type of bakery for SUCH a long time. So happy we were started with THE BEST!!!!

Mazel Tov on opening downtown Disney-Orlando!
so, how soon before Downtown Disney, Anaheim?

CONGRATULATION ! ! !
Izzy

Congratulations!!!!! this is huge. so incredibly happy for you. from one chula vista native to another :0) wink wink

I was just at Disney Monday (we live in Tampa) and came home to an email from the local Celiac support group about your opening. I think we'll have to make an extra trip now. Sunday, maybe. :D I'm so excited!

I am SO excited that you have opened a location here in Florida! I went to your location in L.A. when I was on vacation this past spring and I was hoping and praying that one day you would set up a location here in Florida that I could go to! I am posting this page on my Facebook webpage called Gluten Free Friends of Tampa so that more people will be aware of your opening! I can't wait to drive over this weekend and have some of your delicious gluten free goodies! People with food allergies, celiac disease, gluten intolerance are going to come from near and far to go to your bakery! :-)

This THRILLS me! I have a friend in NY (I'm in Louisiana) who's been telling me all about the bakery, and I had wanted to have something shipped for ages. And I'm going to Disney in March over Mardi Gras break -- and now I can try the bakery firsthand!!! Can hardly wait!

So thrilled that another 'compassionate consumption' option is coming to Florida. It's no secret that Walt Disney World has been lacking in vegetarian/vegan options and we look forward to sending our "herd" of Animal Advocates your way. We will be there for the Grand Opening!!

Thank you! We switched the photo!

This is really exciting, BabyCakes NYC! Good for you! And just a little plug for Disneyland in CA, they do a fabulous job on offering gluten free options all around the park. I don't know much about dairy, but there is a whole list of gluten free food you can find that is available at City Hall on Main Street. I wonder if there is a list for other allergens? Anyway, BabyCakes is surely welcome to move into DTD Disneyland, too! We'd love to have you.

Just returned from a week at Disney World with the family. My daughter is 13 and when I told her Babycakes was at DTD, she didn't stop hounding me until we went! It was a rough go as no one working at DTD could actually tell us where Babycakes was. Thankfully, I had my trusty phone and googled it, found this site which directed me to the right spot. The red velvet cupcakes were amazing, and my nephew gobbled two chocolate ones. Hopefully once the sign is up more people can find it. I know many people were excited and it was disheartening to get there only to have Disney employees look at us in confusion. I hope everyone who heads down there stops in (between T-Rex cafe and Legoland) and enjoy some of those delish cupcakes!

OMG!!! THANKS SO MUCH HAVING ONE AT DISNEY DOWNTOWN!!! My Partner notice babycakesnyc.. he was in mood sweet things and notice Vegans and Gluten-free!!!! PREFECT! he WAVES me while i was ordering roasted chicken... he said come come i had to wait til i get my foods then walk up to that spot area.. i was OMG and had to order me cupcake of lemon! OMG what a amazing! I cant wait to go back vacation again i would eat there every day while i go there! :) hahaha.. Thanks so much! since I have been eating Gluten-free lately helps me less sick.. plus dairy-free too
Love to YALL!

I'm vegan... heard about your bakery opening at Disney World from a non-vegan friend who keeps up with Disney happenings. Even though Disney World customer service is still clueless about your bakery opening, I found your location at Downtown Disney with the help of this website and got to partake of your great bakery goods. I especially LOVE LOVE LOVE the coconut donuts, oh my God, are they GREAT !!!!!! Best wishes to you... I go to Disney a few times a year and will ALWAYS stop by to get some of your pastries. I think it's a GREAT marketing move for Disney World to have an all vegan business on the premises, hooray for that !!!!!! :)

OMG, I have never been soo excited! I have been anxiously awaiting a Florida location. I just bought your cookbook because I honestly thought it would never happen. I still live three hours away, but at least I now know when I go to Disney with my family, I will not have to pack a cooler of food!!

what is the GPS address of the new babycakes????

WOOHOO! This makes my day. We are planning our first trip in December of next year and I've been so stressed about the gf options! :D

Congratulations!! This is excellent news! I make regular visits to "the World" and am thrilled to have another option for delicious indulgences!
Since you are part of "the Show" now, Break a Leg!

terrible time finding the bakery.
asked 3 Disney cast members about it - no one knew a thing. NO sign. NOT on the map.
Babycakes needs some advertising pronto!
the doughnut i had was delicious, but why must a VEGAN bakery be shoved in a corner of a CHICKEN restaurant?

Now you just need one in downtown disney, anaheim!!!

Forgive me but I have never heard of Babycakes NYC before right this minute while searching things to do at Downtown Disney. I live in Orlando and am taking friends from out of town to Downtown Disney tomorrow. After reading these reviews, I am DEFINITELY taking my guests to try a cupcake or 2 or 3 or 4.......:-) Looking forward to it!

I tried locating you on my GPS, getting a phone number from directory assistance, and talked to the Disney operator to try and find you. I don't want to get lost in the madness!

The personal loans are essential for guys, which are willing to organize their career. As a fact, it is easy to receive a short term loan.

That castle is a photo from Florida, NOT California!

I visited Babycakes on Jan 2. These cupcakes were cold like they had been refrigerated, not fresh. It tasted overly salty like too much baking soda was used. I bought a total of 5 cupcakes, so I wondered if it was just one. I went back to the counter to trade it out. Even that cupcake tasted awful. My family and I threw out the cakes. It was the worst cupcake experience I've ever had. We love cupcakes and seek out a cupcakery wherever we go.

Thank you for opening! I went tonight at dtd for the first time. I was so excited to buy gluten free deserts bakery style. I'm used to throwing things together w/my boyfriend's secret Haitian recipes that just so happen to exclude gluten. Thanks!

My family was visiting Disney for vacation and went down to Downtown Disney looking for some breakfast. Had no idea you guys were there, but was over the moon when I saw all of the GF food. I couldn't get enough of it!! The waffles were easily the best GF ones I've ever had and the syrup was amazing. My kids loved the donuts. My wife and I had to go back and get a carrot cake cupcake to top it all off. We ate too much, but when opportunity for this top quality food presents itself, you've got to endulge a bit.

It may be an hour and a half drive to get there, but I think I'm going to head back again this weekend just to get those waffles again! Maybe I'll splurge and grab another cupcake for lunch. . . is that so wrong?
