Ghirardeli's Disney Springs
If on a hot sunny afternoon in Florida you just want to relax and take a break from the hustle and bustle of the theme parks but you still want to be immersed in the Disney Magic then take a visit to Disney Springs ( Downtown Disney). There are plenty of shops for you to look around and some wonderful places to grab a snack or a meal.
One of our particular favourites is Ghirardelli’s Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop. The ice creams, sundae’s, shakes and floats are just delicious. The shop is always busy but you can sit outside at one of the many tables to eat or drink their fantastic offerings.
There is a multitude of different flavors of ice cream on offer including: vanilla, butter pecan, chocolate chip, cookie dough, cookies ‘n’ cream, expressing chip, mint chocolate chip and rocky road. Once you have chosen the flavour that you want then you need to decide to have it in a plain sugar cone, a homemade waffle cone or even a homemade waffle bowl. The next decision is around toppings, do you want just a chocolate topping or perhaps you are more adventurous and opt for crushed pineapple, butterscotch or sliced strawberries? Finally do you have one, two or even three scoops?
If you fancy something a little more substantial then take a look at the various sundae’s that are on offer including:
The Crispy Field - A Cookie Bits Sundae, made with cookies n cream ice cream and smothered with hot fudge and then decorated with whipped cream and chocolate chip cookie crumbles.
The Golden Gate - A Banana Split which is made from vanilla, chocolate and strawberry ice creams with toppings of crushed pineapple, sliced strawberries and finished with fresh bananas, chocolate syrup, whipped cream, chopped almonds and a cherry.
The Strike It Rich - Butterscotch Hot Fudge Sundae which is butter pecan ice cream, smothered in butterscotch and golden almond nuggets, vanilla ice cream and then the normal whipped cream and toppings.
Or if there is a group of you then you could try the ' Earthquake' - it serves up to 4!
Most of the sundaes are around the $11 mark (Jan 16) and are well worth the money especially if two people are sharing.
If you would prefer just a drink then you can choose between various milk shakes or floats or even hot chocolate drinks. There is of course the normal offerings of various coffees including latte' s and mocha' s which are available hot, iced or frozen.
Whatever you decide to choose you won’t be disappointed and you will want to visit here at least once every holiday.
