“Great chocolate and selection.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2014

This shop was a surprise in Downtown Disney. Great chocolate drinks and selection of other treats. Like the other stores, we were disappointed that it closed at 11am.

“Chocolate Lovers Paradise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2014

If you like chocolate or ice cream look no further. Very good and not Disney prices. Kids love the shop with the open atmosphere and the adults like the prices.

“Would you like a free sample, the best fountain cherry coke & delicious Dessert?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014 via mobile

Look no further than Ghiradelli! This is a special treat when we visit Downtown Disney. Skip dessert wherever you eat and pop on over for your final course.

It is always busy, so just stake out a table, it's worth the wait! Or just stop in the store, snag a free sample of their chocilate of the day & order a cherry coke to go; they make it fresh to order with real cherry juice & cherries mixed with the perfect combination of carbonated Coke! Then on your way back by, maybe they will be less busy and you can enjoy your delicious frozen treat on the return trip to your car!

What's good? Pretty much everything I've had there...The Brownie sundae is a perfect combination of a rich, warm chocolate brownie or and the sweet coolness of ice cream complete with whipped cream and a cherry on top! The cookie as good as well and the banana split (of course). Again, like I said...I haven't tasted a thing I don't like there!

Oh, and you might want to order up a bottle of water to offset all the sweetness or just split it with a friend (sharing is caring)!

Enjoy!
