Ghirardelli Ice Cream and Chocolate Shop

Downtown Disney is a great place to do some serious shopping, dining, and even dancing. But it’s also a fun place to search for learning opportunities. Even we were surprised when we happened upon this one.

Ghirardelli Ice Cream and Chocolate Shop is the place to satisfy your sweet tooth. The sundaes range from traditional to tremendous, and they offer a wide range of shakes, floats, and cocoas.

GhirardelliIf you make a restroom stop here, check out the posters in the hallway. One poster describes how Domenico Ghirardelli came to San Francisco to start his chocolate business in 1852 and what made his chocolate process different from others of the time. Another poster shows that process in more detail. And a third tells about the distinctive marketing campaigns that the Ghirardelli company started in the late 1800s to ensure that homemakers all over the country knew its name.
