As you walk through Disney Springs, you may see quite a line forming outside a small brick front shop. What lies inside is a new, but quickly welcomed addition to the Disney Springs family. One of its kind, (although I wish there were many more), The Ganachery. “Who waits in line for chocolate?” you might ask, but this is not just any chocolate, and worth the wait!
Chocolate after all is the best medicine, and the shop embraces this by having an old apothecary feel to it. Once you step inside, you can watch as the chocolates are being hand-crafted on the other side of the glass, accompanied by the wonderful aroma filling the air. There are many delicious milk and dark chocolate options to make your perfect custom box. A small tip to know ahead of time, if you split the chocolate case in half, the same flavors are on either side.
In addition to the chocolates made in-house there is a selection of premade chocolate bars named for Disney Destinations and the “Fab Five” (Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy & Pluto), each a different flavor ranging from Mickey Mouse being a plain milk chocolate bar, to an Aulani bar with white chocolate, pineapple and coconut.
The chocolate created at The Ganachery is beyond compare. Soft creamy centers, and a thin crisp outer layer, each one tasting very different from the next. My personal favorite is Gianduja-Italian Hazelnut with Milk Chocolate.
Even the packaging of these delicious treats is an art. There is also no need to worry about forgetting what flavor you picked, because a handy flavor reference chart is included with your purchase.
I can find only one downside to waiting in line. Once you try the delicious items offered, it will become one more thing you miss when you aren’t at Walt Disney World, and The Ganachery cravings might happen more often than you think! Next time you are visiting Disney Springs, whether you see a line or not, stop in and experience a whole new level of chocolate. Disney continually raises the bar with its level of standards, and now it has raised the chocolate bar!
