Love may make the world go ‘round, but what would the point of everything be without chocolate? And as much as we love any kind of sugary goodness, it’s pretty hard to beat the rich flavors of Ghirardelli chocolate in particular. If you are a fan of the world-famous brand, get ready for an explosion of sweetness, because they have a delicious parlor full of Ghirardelli chocolates and ice cream in Orlando — prepare to dig in and eat up!
Located conveniently at Disney Springs Marketplace, Ghirardelli Soda Fountain & Chocolate Shop has a ton of American ice cream classics, like malts, shakes and hot chocolate. Arguably one of the wildest parts is that you can literally get your sundae with hot fudge made from actual Ghirardelli chocolate.
Is your mouth watering yet?
If huge scoops of ice cream combined with high-quality chocolates aren’t enough to sell you on the spot, you should know that the store is right next to the gorgeous Lake Buena Vista. This means that you can enjoy your treats with a view.

The prices range a bit, depending on how intense of a treat you're in the mood for.
