A New Ice Cream Shop Is Set to Open at Disney’s BoardWalk
While I am still mourning the loss of Ample Hills Creamery at Disney’s BoardWalk in Walt Disney World, I am excited to announce that a new ice cream shop will be taking its place. The new place, will simply be called, “BoardWalk Ice Cream!”
Ample Hills Creamery that formerly occupied the spot closed back when Walt Disney World shut down for the COVID pandemic back in March 2020. Shortly thereafter, the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection as the pandemic shut down the world as well as temporarily closing some of their other locations in the United States.
When Disney’s BoardWalk reopened back in June 2020, Ample Hills Creamery did not reopen. It was then announced that the Ample Hill was bought and would be reopening some of their shops back up. Later in July 2020, it was confirmed by Disney that the location at Disney’s BoardWalk would, in fact, not reopen. In addition, a new location was planned for Disney Springs that was also scrapped.
The official statement from Disney stated:
Our agreement with Ample Hills Creamery ended earlier this year. As a result, Ample Hills will close at Disney’s BoardWalk and the proposed Ample Hills location at Disney Springs will not ope later this year.
At that time, we still did not know what would take the empty ice cream shop’s place at Disney’s BoardWalk but I am super excited to hear that it will be more ice cream! I mean, under that hot Florida sun, I need all the ice cream I can get!
we can confirm that the BoardWalk Ice Cream Shop is opening TODAY at 3 pm and will be LIVE as it opens!
