We have been trying to get here for 2 holidays and finally made it. The menu has lots to choose from. We ordered and found a table. Nice to be able to sit as in the Floridian best ice cream normally melts too quickly to be able to enjoy. Our ice creams were very quickly served. Probably the best ice... More

We love Ghirardelli. The ice cream sundaes are the best in the world and the people are always friendly. Prices aren't cheap (as to be excepted when in Disney) but everything is great.

You get a little chocolate treat just for stepping in the door. This place is a great shopping place for the sweet lover in your life. I love the cafe area where you can get shakes and other goodies.

Have visited this outlet ever year for over 20 year. It is a must for Ice Cream lovers The ice creams are delicious, and the selection great.

Very good ice cream Sunday's. Worth the trip to Disney springs. Avoid any character dining in the Walt Disney World if you don't want to get roped off.
