Look, let's admit it: Ghirardelli is neither the best chocolate nor the best ice-cream around, so we were less than overwhelmed with the selection offered for the price they charge. On of it all, it "featured" huge lines, so I'd say one time is enough,...More

Ghirardeli chocolates are one of my favorites. The drinks they make are great! I was a bit disappointed they no longer give out samples. But with the amount of people visiting Disney Springs it's no wonder they stopped.

No, it isn't quite the same as being at the original shop in San Francisco, but if you're at Disney Springs in Orlando and have a sweet tooth, this is the place to be. Be forewarned - it is ALWAYS crowded and you will have...More

Weekends, Evenings and Holidays always have long lines. Very little seating inside or outside on patio. Small restroom in the back of the store with an oddly-placed changing table (next to sink). There are lots of ice cream and toppings choices - something for everyone....More

Came for desert. We had some different ice cream creations and a wonderful Cafe Mocha. All were rich and tasted excellent. Not low-cal, but certainly worth the calories!

This is very popular and always a huge line but worth the wait to get a chocolate milkshake or ice cream ­čŹŽ

Lovely chocolate and as many know, this is the place to stop for a quick, free, chocolate sample. All went well on first day visit, but on returning in January the chocolate fairy had disappeared! I hoped that this was just while they were restocking...More

Even though the sundaes are $13, the line is out the door constantly. The ice cream and toppings are excellent. The line can look overwhelming, but it moves pretty quickly.

Delicious sundaes? Sure. But, wholly moly $13 per Sundae! A relative in group paid for 3 of these. Pretty presentation even in to go containers. I canÔÇÖt justify. (Even knowing everything is more on Disney property.

No I haven't been there recently, but this shop being in Disney may not have the same offers as online. But I did look and Ghiardelli's official website offers a 10% discount to first time buyers.
