As you are walking around the shops at Downtown Disney, you will smell the sweet yummy smells coming from Ghirardelli...don't deny yourself the enjoyment! Yes, everything is pricey, but the sizes are big enough to share and you will not regret it. Everything we have ever tried is delish!

Everyone had either coffee or ice cream. The ice cream was awesome. However the wait was really long. It was busy and we understood, but leave time for waiting when you go here. Worth the wait.

Lovely chocolate. For sale in bags of several sizes and options. There is always a staff member handing out a free chocolate to everyone that enters the shop so worth going inside for that! The chocolate drink offerings are a bit sickly and you have to queue to get them made for ages. Don't expect to grab a bargain here,... More

Yes, as you may have read it's not cheap but if you have a sweet tooth like me, will very much enjoy it. Also, now in the hot florida summer, the shop is cool as a fridge so you can take a break from the hot weather.

Loved the ice cream sundaes! Each can feed 2! Great place to take a break on a hot afternoon. They also give a 20% military discount.

If you're in Downtown Disney and you walk past here, you will smell the delicious scents flowing out into the street. Let your nose lead the way inside! You won't regret it. Yes, it's a bit expensive, but oh so worth it. The sundae is to die for. Honestly perfect. It can never be duplicated anywhere else. Trust me, I've... More

You'll always get stuck in a line, but it is so worth it. Everything is delicious, and not priced that badly. Tip: go to the Ghiardelli store next door for a free piece of chocolate.
