Chocolate lovers rejoice! We know that this may be old news, but we noticed that we didn’t do a post about this back when it was revealed in December of last year. But yes, chocolate lovers rejoice!
This summer, not only will you be able to race Cars in Cars Land, ride the slopes of the new Matterhorn again, and grab a Venti Awake Tea Latte from Starbucks on Buena Vista Street, but now you’ll also be able to eat chocolate!
The San Fransisco-based chocolate factory Ghirardelli has partnered with Disney to open a a soda fountain/chocolate shop in the former location of the Mission Torilla Factory in the Pacific Wharf area in DCA. The location will serve all the varieties of Ghiradelli flavors put on your favorite ice creams and more. Guests who enter (and maybe exit) will also receive a FREE Ghirardelli Chocolate Square – a signature offering! Don’t abuse it, folks.
Construction on the existing building is currently being done and we’re excited to announce that it will all be revealed on Tuesday, June 5 with an small opening ceremony and ice cream party.
We’re excited to be eating more chocolate and less tortillas. We’ll keep you posted through our Facebook Page.
