Probably the most expensive ice cream treat I have ever purchased but also one of the best!! $12 for a chocolate brownie sundae ! The service is fast despite the long lineups.

There is something magical about sitting inside or outside of this Soda Fountain. We always the award wining Hot Fudge Sundae. This ends our shopping day and competes the dessert requirement I need when I vacation. The ice cream is delectable and the Hot Fudge is Superb!! It is a must stop!!

We always stop here for hot chocolate in December, but was so warm this trip we got ice cream instead---need I say more? Ghirardelli---Ice Cream---can that possibly be bad? Also look forward to the peppermint bark chocolates given away free at the door---THANKS. Giving it away free does work, as my wife ordered a CASE when we got back home.... More

Great varieties and professional servers. Briittani and the other servers were so professional and polite. I didn't understand why so much for bottled water but the chocolate was a deal.

If you love ice cream, they have just about anything you want here. Very large sundaes, any toppings you desire or just a few scoops in a waffle cone. So good!

If you are anywhere near Disney Springs than Ghiradellis Soda Fountain and Chocolate factory is a must stop for ANYONE who wants to enjoy the best chocolatey desert in Orlando.

So disappointed. This has been a family tradition but not any more. Fudge was gooped on the bottom and thick. Ice cream had an after taste. Go find the gelato shop, easier on the wallet and much tastier.

We have been going to Ghirardelli for years. Usually hit it or 2 times when we visit Disney. Since they remodeled the order area a few years ago it goes really smooth. GOOD JOB!!!!
