Nothing quite compares to having the luscious scent of melted chocolate lure you into the Ghirardelli Chocolate Shop at Disney Springs. Upon arrival, you’d be greeted by a Cast Member offering seasonal chocolate samples, be it Peppermint Bark at Christmastime or Pumpkin Spice during, well, pumpkin spice season. Well, that has all but come to and end! That’s right, Ghirardelli is no longer offering samples at the door of their Disney Springs location (or any other location, for that matter.)
We went in to investigate and lo and behold, no greeter… and no chocolate. While you can still ask Cast Members for samples, it definitely takes away from the overall Ghirardelli “experience.” For many guests, passing by for a sample chocolate square made this store a sort of attraction in and of itself!
What do you think about the removal of the greeter position and the free chocolate samples?
