BabyCakes at Downtown Disney

Update - BabyCakes is now called Erin McKenna's Bakery NYC. You can read my review here.

Today, we had lunch at Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory, and skipped the gluten free beignets for the first time so I could get some treats at BabyCakes.  BabyCakes is closing at the end of business tomorrow, because of the construction of Disney Springs, and there is no word of when or if they will reopen.   

BabyCakes is currently located in the same building as Pollo Campero and Bodie's in Downtown Disney, soon to be known as Disney Springs.  

The baked goods at BabyCakes are free of gluten, dairy, egg, soy, and refined sugar.  They are also vegan and kosher.  

Even though I find BabyCakes to be hit or miss, I had to go one last time and order a couple of items that I really enjoy, like French Toast Cupcakes and the Apple Toastie.  I also like the cinnamon sugar donuts and cinnamon sugar toastie.

BabyCakes bagels are the best I have had since my celiac diagnosis, but they usually have to be special ordered.  I am now regretting not ordering some for pick up today.  They freeze and reheat really well.

I asked about the future of BabyCakes during my visit, and was told there is still no word on Disney's plans for the bakery.  I was given their card and told they will be accepting special orders.

Here is some additional information from their website:

BabyCakes will deliver items to the front desk of your Disney Resort during your stay.  They can also deliver cakes to most table service restaurants on Disney property.  Orders should be placed at least one week before your dining reservation by calling 407-938-9044.

I hope BabyCakes will reopen soon with its own storefront in Disney Springs.  It is beloved by so many people with special diets.  The fact that BabyCakes will still be providing baked goods on Disney property makes me think that they won't be disappearing for good.

If you are a Disney World annual passholder, don't forget to ask for a discount.

BabyCakes is now delivering locally within the Orlando area, and to the Walt Disney World Resorts and Universal Resort hotels.  You can place an order by calling 407-938-9044.

BabyCakes will soon have a new home and a new name in Disney Springs.  Erin McKenna's Bakery NYC is expected to open in The Landing some time in February.
