This chocolate shop was busting at the seams with people last Saturday. Everyone receives a full size sample of Ghirardelli chocolate, and of course the sights and smells are delicious! The adjoining cafe was also quite busy with a line out the door. Somehow buying some chocolate here makes it tastier than buying it off the shelf at Target. My two teenagers and I bought two large chocolate bars to bring back to our hotel. This store is perfect for Downtown Disney!

Is it loving-goodness, organic, BGH/HFC-free ice cream? Nope, but its still ICE CREAM! And lots of it! The kind that contain 'invisible' calories that don't count since you're on vacation. I see that a lot of reviewers complain about the price - what do you expect, you're eating out? Tip - I'd recommend visiting when its not very busy. When we went around 8:30pm, the crowd nearly spilled onto the street so it can be quite a chaotic wait.

The ice cream selections were very good; a basic, but flavorful menu. The prices were a bit high - even for Downtown Disney ... especially since sundaes are now served in what looked like plastic drinking cups. The cost of a sundae is about $9.00 - rather cost prohibitive for large families. The order was tasty, but not much beyond average.

The chocolate chip cookies and brownies are to die for. Located centrally in Downtown Disney. It was a cool night, so the coffee and the dessert was a great ending to a nice evening.

Nothing particularly special about this overpriced ice cream shop. I wouldn't bother going back again to queue, pay over the odds and get ice cream similar in quality to what you could buy in a supermarket.
