We had an ice cream sundae for lunch, we blame Disney for bringing out the kid in us! I had a salted caramel and my friend an espresso. They are delicious and oh so naughty, with hot fudge sauce, ice cream and cream to top off with a chocolate square. It was too much but we did enjoy them and... More

My fiance was in Orlando for business and our hotel was close to Disney Springs. The first night there we walked Disney Springs and of course found our way into Ghiradelli because of its wonderful smells! We passed the first night on ice cream as we hadn't eaten yet, but came back the following night after dinner to have this... More

The line at Starbucks was at least 30 min. long so we tried Ghiradelli. I was so surprised that the Salted Carmel Hot Chocolate was perhaps the best I have ever tasted. I wish I had gone back for more. In fact, I think I'll look for the mix online right now!!!!

This is by far my favorite dessert place. Everything is Ah-mazing!! I usually get the brownie sundae but my husband loves the banana split. Sure, it's a little pricier then you want to spend on ice cream, but it is so delicious it is worth the experience. The portions are big and it is rich so sharing is always a... More

Overpriced as you may expect but overall good. Ghiradelli goes along with the whole atmosphere of Disney, it should be a special occasion. Smell a vision just stand outside u will gain weight.

You are not going to find a better selection of premium ice cream choices than this location. Whether it is a banana split or a sundae, the quality and presentation is spectacular. This is always on my stop list when I come to Orlando

We love the ice cream sundaes and cones in here, they are pretty big so bare in mind if you don't eat much ice cream! The chocolates are pretty good to!
