The best ice cream ever with delicious light flavors. the chocolate smell drew us into the shop! Very popular and crowded but efficient service.

We stopped here while visiting downtown disney last week. The best part of the visit was the free chocolate square they give you! My son ordered a waffle bowl with once scoop, and my husband got the same. I will say the one scoop looked more like two! It is pretty expensive for ice cream though. As with everything else around Disney, you need to expect to overpay! The atmosphere was nice, although the place was packed, they do have overflow outdoor eating that was a good place to people watch. Of course it was ice cream so they loved it, but for the price we could have gone somewhere else and gotten more for our money. Overall, save your money if you have a large family and go get ice cream outside of Downtown Disney.

Follow the sweet smell at downtown Disney and it'll bring you here! It seems expensive, but the portions are big enough to share. The long lines move fast and it's worth the wait! Stop by the chocolate shop for a free sample too!

It was a scorching day when my friend and I visited Downtown Disney. Our lunch server at the Wolfgang Puck restaurant suggested that we visited this shop.. and we were glad that we did! Mind you, it is expensive but so worth it! We ordered the hot fudge sundae in the Ghirardelli's own waffle cup with dark chocolate.. It so sinfully good!

Impressively, the whole service staff was very efficient. Its customers were not made to wait too long for their ice cream.
