“Great Dessert but Crowded!,”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

We went at Christmas time so obviously it was crowded, but the line was all the way out the door. I'm not sure how typical this is, though. The dessert was delicious, though and we loved it!

“Chocolate heaven”
Reviewed March 28, 2014 via mobile

What is there to not enjoy....all sorts of sundaes, coffees and sodas....they will make your dessert to order. In season it can get terribly crowded and hectic but off season it's fun to stroll in, order and sit outside in the sunshine enjoying a chocolate Brooklyn egg cream.

“little pricey”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

We ordered a butterscotch hot fudge sundae and the description listed was made with butter pecan ice cream and vanilla ice cream. There was NO butter pecan ice cream in the sundae at all. The sundae was quite good but we felt it was over priced as it was nothing special, but everything at Disney is a little pricey.

“Over-Rated and Over Priced”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

We ordered a chocolate milkshake, a hot fudge sundae and a cone. We waited for more than 20 minutes for what was an average product, at best. NEVER AGAIN!

“chocoholic OD's”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

OMG!

Ghiridelli's Is the ultimate and a chocoholics dream. When we stumbled upon their store in Downtown Disney it was hard to leave.

The largest collection of assorted chocolates anywhere. We nearly bought the the store out.

However, what really topped it off was the chocolate malted shake we purchased upon leaving. YUUUMMMMYYYY!

It was after slurping that down that I passed out.
