“Disney Magic away from Disneyland!”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

I'll admit, I love Disneyland, so falling in love with this place was very easy for me. My wife and 3 friends were in the area and decided to take a break here over some dessert. Amongst the group we ordered two sundaes and three milkshakes (don't judge haha).

All of the items were well portioned and delicious. Service was also very attentive. While not quite as magical as Disneyland itself, it does provide that magical ambiance and Disney service I have come to love.

If you are in the area, looking for a break from the heat and need to satisfy that sweet tooth, this place is definitely worth a visit.

“Huge sundaes and more”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

We visited last year and my wife and I shared a sundae. This year with three tennagers in tow we went back. We were hungry but not enough for a sundae each, so we thought we would share the giant one. It was GIANT !! We struggled for five of us to get through the delicious ice cream, toppings and whipped cream. We got a badge at the end because we finished it - we earned it !! Great food, great fun and loads of celebrity photos of those who had eaten there before us. Happily go back there.

“Over priced, poor service”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

We went to the Disney Soda Fountain because I wanted a classic American banana split. We sat at the bar rather than a table. The waitress had to be asked twice by other staff to serve us and it wan't busy at the time. The banana split was good, but over garnished. We checked some of the souvenirs & they were seriously over priced. I guess that's the price yo pay for the Disny name.

“expensive but Worth it for a family outing:).:).:).:).:).:).:).”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

The merchandise is expensive but what can you expect its Disney:). The Staff is friendly and they have an awesome variety of merchandise. Theyve got stands in the back of the Store with slighty cheaper merchandise. our Lil daughter got a light-up minnie mouse that spins her dress:). Very cute and she was pleased:).
