The line was out the door but the wait wasn't that bad and definitely worth it. We went several times throughout the week. While waiting in line we looked at the menu which made it easier to order when it was our turn. My wife loved the Mint Bliss and I have to agree that it was delicious. All of... More

Sad to say more and more ice cream parlors do not know how to make a real chocolate soda. My wife Barbara loves them since her childhood, but new generations of ice cream parlor owners fail in their duty to study the heritage of American ice cream. Don't blame the Italians. They have their own traditions. Ghirardelli makes the best... More

You will probably have to wait a little to get your order in as they are usually busy but it is so worth the wait!

Big crowd .. Big portions but lacks the gourmay taste you would expect this would be top of the line experience but unfortunately this is about large portions and lots of waste

Awesome banana split and hot chocolate. Very busy place but a great ending to the day if you are wanting a sweet treat after a long day of sightseeing.

We visited today in the hopes of trying some outstanding ice cream. It was indeed very tasty especially the mint bliss in a waffle cone. They are very large so beware you may not be able to finish it off. You must order be field being allocated a seat and we myself and my family did this and sat excitedly... More

We always visit here on the first day of our holiday, we love the ice cream sundaes, OK a little on the expensive side, but they are so good, and we always look forward to this treat, we do however eat inside as its way to hot to enjoy outside in the heat.. Great location with live music often playing... More

You can't leave Disney Springs until you have tried a Ghiradelli sundae with homemade hot fudge!! Local tip - Get it to go and walk to where there are fewer crowds. The wait is shorter, and you won't have to struggle to find seating. Also, plan to share, the sundaes are huge!
