I'm giving this four stars instead of five because of the small building and long wait times. I love stopping by for my annual Ghirardelli sundae. Prices are high but they are simply amazing!

Man behind counter was funny and even tried to joke with me, a grown woman alone with no children in tow. Shake was good and was whipped up quickly. Nice seating area outside store to sit and sip.

The Reverie chocolate sundae is suicide for us but worth every single bite. Yes, it's expensive but it is sooo worth it. Splurge. Plenty for two to share but my wife and I each get our own. :-)

We go to Disney Springs when we are in town for Disney World. Our favorite time to walk around is holiday time admiring all of the decorations and stopping in at Ghirardelli for ice cream. The sundaes are large, choose to share with someone.

Delicious!!! Definitely the best ice cream I ate ever! But try to eat it inside the local because outside the local may be too hot and it will melt too fast :(

The Sundaes are amazing! full of rich chocolate - really the place to go if you are a chocolate lover. Luckily, they have a few items without chocolate, which is useful for my mother who is allergic. Next door is the shop where you can purchase items (sometimes they are giving out samples ;) ) Not to be missed!!!

We had the sundae with chocolate chip cookies in it and it was amazing. Large enough for us to share. Will definitely go back. Don't forget they give passholder and military discounts.

On a gorgeous sunny day at Disney Springs we couldn't resist stopping by here for an ice cream. We both ordered waffle cones and couldn't believe how big they were. The ice cream was really good and if you're on the dining plan they are definitely worth a quick service credit.

Probably the most expensive ice cream treat I have ever purchased but also one of the best!! $12 for a chocolate brownie sundae ! The service is fast despite the long lineups.

There is something magical about sitting inside or outside of this Soda Fountain. We always the award wining Hot Fudge Sundae. This ends our shopping day and competes the dessert requirement I need when I vacation. The ice cream is delectable and the Hot Fudge is Superb!! It is a must stop!!
