The Ganachery at Disney Springs opened in 2015. It was one of those spots we wanted to visit as soon as it opened. But since we hadn’t been to the parks in a while that visit was delayed. But since we had a Florida trip planned to visit a friend we decided to stop by Disney Springs to see what we had been missing.
We were immediately greeted when we came inside. Since this was our first visit the Cast Member took us on a tour of the store and explained what was available. We also got to sample the caramel filling they use ins some of the chocolate. Yum!
“An indulgent new experience at Disney Springs, The Ganachery treats guests to a decadent assortment of artisan chocolates. Hand-crafted onstage by a chocolatier, the new location features fresh batches of custom-made ganache daily, including dark chocolate, hazelnut, chipotle and a custom blend flavored with the world’s finest spices and flavors. The shop expands the story of chocolate through its design, themed costumes, graphics, props and unique apothecary-inspired packaging.”
There are lots of pre-packaged options. The chocolate bars are Disney themed, represent different characters and parks, and come in milk, white, and dark chocolate. I didn’t try it out this time but on my must try list is the Pluto chocolate bar with milk chocolate, peanut butter, and peanuts. There are also chocolate pops and crispy chocolate pearls.
The star of the show is the ganache. There are sixteen flavors of house made ganache to choose from. You can choose an individual piece or a box of six, nine or twelve. It’s a little on the expensive side but it’s definitely worth the indulgence. We decided to get split a box of six to take home.
The packaging is so pretty! They ganache comes in a magnetically sealed box with a cute label. It’s wrapped up in tissue paper and our chocolate held up beautiful after spending 8 hours in the car. You’ll also leave with a flavor reference card to help you remember which each piece is.
What We Tried
First up is the Caramel Fleur de Sel, rich, creamy caramel and sea salt with milk chocolate. If you love caramel you will really enjoy this. It’s the only milk chocolate we tried. We both liked it but agreed the dark chocolate is our favorite.
The Egyptian Sea Salt, dark chocolate with sea salt from the Red Sea, was Andrew’s favorite.
I gave tie Matcha | Yuzu, Japanese green tea and Yuzu with dark chocolate, a try. Matcha is a finely ground green tea and yuzu is citrus fruit. If you love those flavors you will really like this ganache. I did!
The vanilla ganache was another one of Andrew’s favorites. Very subtle vanilla flavor but pairs great with the dark chocolate.
The Pistacho ganache features Sicilian pistachios and dark chocolate. I thought this one would be my favorite. Don’t get me wrong, it was good. Just not a home run for me.
And finally we had the orange, fresh Florida oranges and dark chocolate. The medallion on the top is gorgeous and the taste is amazing. Orange isn’t typically my favorite flavor but I would definitely get this one again.
We’ll be visiting The Ganachery at Disney Springs again in the future. The ganache is so good and it’s fun way to bring a little Disney back home with you. And I can’t wait to try some of the candy bars.
Let us know what you think in the comments. What flavors have you tried or which ones are you looking forward to getting?
