Ghirardelli Soda Fountain Shop at Disney Springs recently underwent a refreshing facelift. It can get pretty packed in there and this new design is supposed to alleviate some of that traffic. The line now instead of two straight lines out the door are in a back and forth pattern to allow for more people to be in line and easier flow. You will instantly notice the large sundae and Ghirardelli Sign that brightly greats you at the door, with a painting of one of their store that is part of their long history starting back in 1852 in San Fransisco California. It also has the signature Ghirardelli sign above it.
Overhead there are nice new lighting fixtures updating the space. The line also has easy access to some favorite Ghirardelli chocolates. Once you order your ice cream and make your way over to the dining area, here you will notice the most change. The seating use to be many crammed small tables that you would try to finagle around and squeeze chairs around. I know I’ve had to have people get up just so I could get by them before how tight it was in there.
Now it’s clean and crisp. Two long tables that can sit around 10 people each in a communal style. Then all around the backside are counter height standing tables that wrap around the entire dining area that you can use to eat at. There is still the additional outside seating as well. Overall these updates make it fresh, bring it up to date and add better functionality of the space. It has a nice mix of metal and wood for a subtle industrial feel. Its a welcomed change.
