If you are going to splurge at the park or just want some really good ice cream then this is the place. The taste is fantastic and choices would make a diabetic go into a comma. This is a ice cream lovers paradise, and we go here every time we are in the park. Caution the prices are a little... More

Ghirardelli's is a San Francisco staple and I used to fly up there just to have their ice cream... when they installed it inside of DCA... I was thrilled! Their sundae's are divine! My personal favorite is the cookie bottom sundae.. where they place a humongous chocolate chip cookie at the bottom of a sundae with vanilla ice cream, chocolate... More

We were in the first legs of a long road trip and stopped off here. Kids were thrilled and everything was great! Great location near a lot of restaurants and the water. We will definitely stop again on our way back down.

It is a must - Ghirardelli's just can't be missed. From the free sample to the hot chocolate to the large bag of bars, you can't help leaving with a smile. On note: I found the "Decadent Drinking Chocolate" to be too much - it was "Really Good" for the first couple of sips, but I had to do a... More

We stopped in for a cool treat while visiting California Adventure. We were given a free sample of chocolate at the door (who doesn't love free chocolate?), and we ordered five ice cream cones. The cashier informed me that because the store was privately owned, they offered a military discount, so our ice cream came out to around $25 for... More

We wanted this as a mid-day snack. The portions were so large that it kind of ruined our appetite. We didn't eat dinner till almost 9pm. The ice cream was sweet and they have lots of options. The sundaes are so big you need to share them. Yummy and will satisfy any sweet tooth

We went here for sundaes one night. The dark chocolate hot fudge is so good. And you can make your own from lots of choices of ice cream flavors and toppings. I love the sign inside that moves when there is an 'earthquake'. And they give you a free sample when you walk in. It's great.

You have to hit this join when you're in Ca. Right on Hollywood blvd. Go there early and find parking and you can also roam around nearby the walk of fame. Everything is within distance. Cool experience all around.

If you come here for ice cream, I hope you really LOVE ice cream. The sundaes, cones, everything is just huge, oh and did I mention, delicious? My 14 year old son got the banana split. Even with his teenage appetite, I am still surprised he could eat all of it.

Located in Disney California Adventure the Ghirardelli Soda Fountain & Chocolate Shop has the BEST ice creams. Free sample of caramel chocolate was nice. Service quick and it took no time at all for our ice creams to be ready. Everyone in our family loved the ice creams.
