Where: Disney California Adventure
The famous San Francisco chocolatier offers a line-up of sweets that boggles the mind, yet we recommend choosing one of the really amazing sundaes, like the Caramel Quake Shake or the Gold Rush peanut butter hot fudge sundae with its melted, gooey topping. Every sundae is an homage to California history, from the massive 8-scoop, 8-topping Earthquake, and Golden Gate banana split to the rocky road Cable Car or, Domingo Ghirardelli’s personal favorite, the banana hot fudge sundae.
