I love Ghirardelli ice cream and make it a point to stop at any Ghirardelli soda fountain I find. We had ice cream here and it was every bit as delicious as always.

Just went to the chocolate part but excellent choice of Ghiradelli chocolates. Always get a free square just for stopping in. Always have something on sale too.

The Ice Cream Sundaes are amazing. Especially for the 'Salted Caramel' lover. The Shakes are good, but not overwhelmingly fantastic. The Hot Chocolates are deliciously rich as well. The safe bet is to go for a Sundae. You should not be disappointed in Size. For Disney prices, it's pretty reasonable at $11

The employees are very friendly. You can even watch them make desserts/beverages behind-the-scenes. I like the free samples too.
