We have been coming to Ghirardelli at Disney Springs since it opened years ago. The ice cream is great and they feature a number of different sundaes, banana splits and drinks. I especially like the root beer floats with chocolate ice cream. The place is always crowded, but the service is always great. They take your order at the cash... More

This is one of my favorite ice cream parlors, it is located in Disney Springs It is one of the original shops, the parlor is connected to a small shop that sells Ghirandelli chocolates, which gives out free samples, so worth going in just for that The parlor does various sundaes and milkshakes as well as cones and drinks At...

My wife and I loved this place. Being as it's in Disney springs you would think the price is going to be sky high, but it was very reasonable. We got the triple scoop which was enough for both of us plus our three young kids. All for less than $10 buck!

Stopped here one very warm night in September. I would definitely recommend everybody to try at least something from here. I ordered the cookies and cream sundae Krissy Fields? I think it was called. And oh my gosh it was delicious, cookies and cream ice cream with vanilla ice cream, cream and hot fudge sauce! Amazing! Definitely a sharing sundae... More

The shakes here are amazing. Rich, and full of flavor. Make sure to stop in and get your free chocolate square as well!

The nob hill chills are awesome here. So sweet, cold, and chocolately. The best part are the mini chocolate chips at the bottom of the cup. They add an extra delicious touch.

I had the chocolate, caramel sundae, fantastic! I wish they had more indoor seating, but I still enjoyed the ice cream. I wanted to go back for another one the next day but didn't have time.

After a bad visit to Sprinkles earlier in our vacation we tried a new ice cream place. Kids loved it! I thought everything was great, but the cone was a little tough, we had a sprinkle covered waffle cone.

Lovely ice cream and sundaes but oh so busy in an evening. Queue for almost 20 minutes to get a small tub of ice cream. Expensive for ice cream but hardly surprising given location. Perhaps better location during daylight hours

This is the must stop shop to have an end of day sweet treat. The ice cream and chocolate combinations aka ice cream Sunday's are delicious. The price is high, (I assume it's the tourist area), so you may want to share. The entrance is a general standing area and then you pass threw a cashier and wait in another... More
