“Cool Treats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

This was my first time at Ghirardelli and I was very pleased with my selection. The treat was great, atmosphere nice but the lines were very long. It took forever to get our ice cream. Time was on our side so I guess to take the good with the bad. Walking around Downtown Disney was fun. The music was great and a nice evening.

“Overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Nothing you can't get at the best local ice cream shop in your hometown. I guess if you really like their chocolate...not me though. Was just average.

“the ice cream was great, not sure about the rest!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

the ice cream was great of course! we had the earthquake: 8 scoops of icecream, bananas, nuts, sauces, lots of cherries! between the 5 of us we coulnt finish it!
its very crowded, and for some reason, there were a lot of flies this time, so it was very annoying!
i wish it had a nice atmosphere to enjoy the ice cream a lot more!
