California Adventure opens Ghirardelli shop next spring


Ghirardelli, the famous Bay Area chocolatier, is opening a soda fountain and chocolate shop inside the park's Pacific Wharf area next spring.

The soda fountain and shop will feature Ghirardelli hot fudge sundaes and chocolate products. Each guest will be given a free sample of the signature Ghirardelli Squares chocolate.

"The addition of a world-renowned brand like Ghirardelli highlights our focus on providing quality, immersive experiences that transport our guests to a different place, in this case to San Francisco," according to Mary Niven, vice president of Disney California Adventure park.

"With the culmination of our expansion only a few months away, it is an exciting time at Disney California Adventure and we look forward to partnering with Ghirardelli in bringing this delicious chocolate experience to our guests," Niven said.

Ghirardelli also has a shop in Downtown Disney at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla.

Disney is the parent company of ABC7.
