Delicious Delicious Delicious - ice cream with all types of toppings and more. You can stop in and just get a free piece of chocolate if you don't wish to buy an actual dessert or drink.

Tried it once and now it is a must when at Disney. Not only is the hot fudge superb, but the ice cream is yummy. We keep it simple with a single scoop hot fudge Sunday. Husband gets dark chocolate ms I get milk chocolate. It's the perfect size for your desert sweet tooth. Caution- most other orders are huge.... More

The visit started with a free sample at the door and ended with an amazing white chocolate mocha. Would return here again for a nice treat.

Being one of my favorite brands of chocolate gets this an automatic two thumbs up. The free sample chocolate upon entry is a plus! Sundae's are HUGE so plan to split with a friend or split your pants. The choice is yours!
