Chocolate samples will replace free tortillas when a new Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate shop opens in Disney California Adventure.
The Ghirardelli venue will go where Mission Tortilla Factory previously ran. The chocolate shop is set to open in late spring. The California chocolate shop is designed to be similar to another Ghirardelli location at Florida Downtown Disney in Walt Disney World.
Mission Tortilla Factory closed May 31,2011 after a 10 years in the park's Pacific Wharf area.Guests could get a free,warm,freshly made tortillas after a tour at the attraction.
Ghirardelli, a company that started in 1852 at the historic Ghirardelli Square in San Franscisco, plans to retain the San Francisco feel of the Pacific Wharf area of the park. This new shop will hand out free Ghirardelli Squares chocolate samples, as well as selling products. The fountain will feature popular sundaes topped with fresh hot fudge that is made daily. This park shop is the only Ghirardelli location in Orange Coounty. Another soda fountain and shop runs in San Diego, California while an outlet is in Ontario,California.
