Imagine the unmistakable aroma of rich chocolate, a scent that will draw guests into The Ganachery, a new chocolate shop set to open in The Landing in late 2015 at Disney Springs.
Walt Disney World chefs traveled the world to research and create a custom blend chocolate with the finest beans for the all-new concept that will feature freshly made ganache (gəˈnaSH). Ganache is a luxurious mixture of chocolate and cream, and every chef has their own “perfect” formula for the indulgent sweet.
Hand-crafted onstage by a chocolatier, the shop will feature fresh batches daily, including dark (65 percent custom blend), hazelnut, chipotle and a custom blend flavored with the world’s finest spices and flavors.
Beautiful custom packaging will make elegant take-home gifts. And you can bet there will be chocolate bars inspired by Disney characters.
