While in Downtown Disney we stopped here and enjoyed the World Famous Hot Fudge Sundae! This simple dessert was one of the best ever! In my opinion, you can definitely taste the difference in hot fudge between this brand and others....it was some of the most delicious I have ever tasted! There is plenty on the menu if you desire...

I think it's the best place in orlando for ice cream. It's really good. Last time i wend i had a banana split. It's very big so it was perfect to share. And trust me even people who don't care about ice cream couldn't stop eating mine!

Great ice cream place located in Disney's Market place. If you love good chocolate, this is the place for you! Pricey, but yummy!

Great drinks, I had the brownie shake and would recommend it to anyone for a decadent desert. The shop is clean and the food will cost you a pretty penny.

This is the place to go when you are in the mood for ice cream! The Sea Salt Caramel sunday was amazing. It was probably one of the best sundaes I've ever had. The sundaes are a bit pricey (around $10 each), but so worth it. They are big enough that you could even split it between two people. You... More

Oh my goodness, if you love ice cream and are visiting the Downtown Disney area definitely don't miss a chance to try this out. It is pricey but sooo worth the money. The Sea Salt Carmel Banana Quake Shake rocked my world!! LOL, get it? Quake Shake, rocked my world? Truly though, this is a must visit.

My hubby and I stop here every trip to Disney. Smells like heaven even just walking by. Milkshakes are delicious and the sundaes are fabulous. The lines however are not so fabulous.

I promised the kids we'd have ice cream one night and once you make a promise....Well, we were at Downtown Disney and I decided that this was the night. We ordered the family sundae (The Earthquake Family Favorite) from Ghiradelli and it was a hit with the kids and my mom. It brought back memories of her teen years when... More

We ordered the Hot Fudge and Sea Salt Caramel Sundae. They were ridiculously priced ($10 each) and consisted of soft serve style ice cream in a plastic cup! Basically the same thing you get at McDonald's, only a little bigger with slightly better chocolate/fudge. Terribly disappointed and would never return.
