This location is always crowded, but it's worth the wait. I bought the sea salt caramel hot chocolate and it was like drinking a brownie. And free chocolate samples at the door. Amazing.

Best milkshake on the property. Very consistent always a great treat on a warm day, albeit a little pricey.

The chocolate is oh so good to eat. Many flavors and treats to purchase. I love getting a nice cup of hot cocoa on a cold night. These chocolates are as pricey as they are rich. Always worth dropping in for the free sample at the door.

Ghiradelli soda fountain and chocolate shop at Disney Springs is the perfect place to stop and enjoy the world famous Ghiradelli chocolate - my mouth is watering just thinking of it! If you go into the candy shop side, there is a person handing out samples of Ghiradelli chocolates; on the ice... More

This has got to be the absolute best ice cream! Maybe it's the atmosphere but we visit Ghirardelli as often as possible on our Disney vacations. It is by far my husbands favorite stop!

Great ice cream and toppings. Surprised it was served in plastic as I have eaten in San Francisco and that is glass. Same great food though.

BEST brownie sundae ever!! Yes, they are expensive, but it's worth every penny! They have a great location within Disney Springs right next to the performance area on the water. It's a must every visit!
