    The name is a little odd, but other than that, looks great. Looking forward to it.

    They found pretty much one of the only things Disney doesn't have when it comes to food and it looks like they turned it into an awesome setting. Definitely a big improvement over NBA City (or should be).

    The building certainly stands out. It's iconic in a way. I like it. Not crazy about the name though. I think customers will shorten the name to Chocolate Factory. I can't picture people actually saying, "lets get a meal at Toothsomes''

    Not what I expected, I was thinking a little more whimsical but I like it none the less

    Disney have that Ghirardelli chocolate place (trying to find the name on that Disney Springs website was a nightmare, horrible website) so I wouldn't call the chocolate thing completely unique but as an experience and a building, wow, it looks great.

    Not exactly...Ghirardelli isn't unique to just Disney is what I think he is getting at.

    Loving it! It may be to much to wish (it probably is) but I hope it's open by my HHN trip this year.

    This is much more than Ghirardelli. This is going much farther in terms of theming and it's also a restaurant, unlike ghirardelli, which is just dessert.

    I'm not usually one to quibble over these things, but I hate the name.

    Apparently the restaurant will also feature transparent people.

    I really like this concept. I also agree it is very unique and very much needed. So far Universal has crappy franchise dessert places. So I am glad to see something like this where not only will it have great unique non-franchise desserts, but it will also have unique high end dinner options. The theme is awesome. I agree the name could be better and I think people will call it Chocolate Factory, which is fine.
