Not to be outdone by the longstanding and popular location at Walt Disney World in Florida, Disneyland Resort today grand opened a new Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop within the Disney California Adventure theme park.

While it’s first the first Ghirardelli shop to open inside a theme park, the world-famous tasty treats served there are no different. The new eatery serves up hot fudge sundaes, milkshakes, and floats, and is chock full of chocolate products, located in the San Francisco-inspired Pacific Wharf area of the park.

As with every Ghirardelli location, each guest entering is offered a complimentary sample of their signature chocolate.

“As we celebrate the culmination of our resort expansion, we are thrilled to welcome Ghirardelli, and to make this unique chocolate experience available to our park guests,” said George A. Kalogridis, president of Disneyland Resort. “Ghirardelli is a perfect fit for our newly reimagined Disney California Adventure, as we both share a rich California heritage.”

    I am a big supporter of Michelle Obama’s and her campaign to take away junk food from people, so I’m not happy with this big chocolate place opening in a Disney park. I think it should have been a Farmer’s Market or Urban Farm instead of a chocolate factory attraction. Kids could have learned about eating vegetables or growing healthy fruits, and there would have been a big salad bar with all kinds of fixings for people to sample….because a lot of kids don’t even know what all the different kinds of vegetables are.

    So I think Disney made a rare mistake with this Ghiradelli stuff, when it was an opportunity to promote healthy eating like Michelle Obama says.

    It would hard for me to trust Michelle Obama when she condones a husband that smokes. Just saying.

    The name of the park is CALIFORNIA Adventure….. Ghirardelli Chocolate began in S.F., CA so, it’s definitely a good fit! I Love Michelle Obama’s campaign, as well; there are fruit stands throughout the parks, but kids are not going to learn to eat healthy from a theme park visit if it’s not being taught at home!
