Just went to the chocolate part but excellent choice of Ghiradelli chocolates. Always get a free square just for stopping in. Always have something on sale too.

Got the banana split. A little secret. When you arrive send one of your party to scout out and outside table along the water. Order your treat and tell the cashier your sitting by the water. They will come find you once it is ready.

The Ice Cream Sundaes are amazing. Especially for the 'Salted Caramel' lover. The Shakes are good, but not overwhelmingly fantastic. The Hot Chocolates are deliciously rich as well. The safe bet is to go for a Sundae. You should not be disappointed in Size. For Disney prices, it's pretty reasonable at $11

Some of the bestest ice cream in the central Florida region. Can't ever pass up an opportunity for a sundae here.

The employees are very friendly. You can even watch them make desserts/beverages behind-the-scenes. I like the free samples too.

We normally share our ice cream as they are so large but this time we thought they had introduced a child size.... More

We love this place and have come each time we've visited Orlando. We have nick named it Ghirardelli Fat Belly because there are so many sweets there to try.
