The only way I can finish a No Way is if I have it for a meal. If I have it for dessert after a meal, it's just too much. But it's sooooooo good!

But I would agree with the "try both" crowd. Food is very subjective, and the only way you'll know which one you like better is to try them both!

Just a heads up- you can get the no way Jose in a smaller size with 3 scoops of ice cream for a lower price. I often do this because the 5 scoops is way to big, most of the time I can't finish the smaller one if I have eaten a meal! I recommend getting the smaller if you are by yourself- so good! and you can pick your ice cream flavors,I usually do 2 chocolate and 1-vanilla!!

Ghirardelli is a must have every time we go to Disney. The hot fudge is too die for, and the vanilla ice cream is really good too. Plus they hand out free chocolate squares at the store, so there's no reason not to go!

In this case, I would choose Ghirardelli. If I only had time for one location, I'd rather spend the time in DTD than at the Boardwalk. The Boardwalk area can be fun for a couple hours, but DTD definitely has more to offer, if you aren't going solely to eat.

IMHO, the best Sundae possible is one spent at Magic Kingdom with the family. Saturday is pretty good too.

We have tried the kitchen sink and think it is OK. The sand pail from either of the two waterparks is by far our favorite ice treat at WDW though. A whole Sundae in a pail and it is delish, just in case you go to the waterparks. Best $10 treat on property IMO. Either way with ice cream you can't go wrong.

There is a new homemade icecream shop opening in Epcot in June. Not sure what kinds of sundaes they will make or even if they will. 16 flavors! Check out the part about the shot of liquor on top of ice cream in a martini glass!!

I agree with this, we tried sundaes at DTD and thought they were boring plus over priced.

Brownie

Alright, so who's has the fudgiest brownie? I heard that Beaches isn't served warm? If so I might have to go Ghirardelli on that one. Or their cookie, if it's gooey and warm. I like my baked goods mushy lol.

The most amazing sundae I've had is the "Ugly but Good sundae" at Via Napoli. I ask them to make mine with pistachio (instead of vanilla).

Both Beaches and Cream and Ghirardelli are good places for a treat. Ghirardelli has more flavors of ice cream. I like cookie dough which you can't get a BC.

The choc/PB one @ Ghiradelli is worth trying
