The place was packed, but we were seated immediately. My daughter and I shared a Sundae, my husband had the Banana Split. Both were very good. Portions are smaller than they used to be.

Yes, it's a thing, but you don't go for the food or even for the ice cream. You go because it has become the thing to do, a thing built up from the movie from Pixar, a thing that people from generations past used to do (although not at this place-no, read about the horrible arson story in Wikipedia.

Always a great pleasure to visit. They have integrity that is sometimes hard to find as franchises vary with helpers.

There are more than a few ice cream shops in the Bay Area. Many are very good, but few, if any have been featured in Disney films. Fentons is featured in the Disney film UP!
