MickeyBlog Is At The Grand Opening Of Boardwalk Ice Cream!
If you’ve been following along with us you’ll know that our MickeyBlogger Holly announced that a brand new ice cream shop and cropped up seemingly over night along the Boardwalk of Disney’s EPCOT Resorts.
The shop is located at the same storefront of Ample Hills Creamery which was a casualty of the pandemic closing both Disney locations.
MickeyBlog is currently first in line to visit the shop which is expected to open at 3pm today!
You can see the new signage has gone up!
Social distancing markers are also in place.
They’ll be one door to enter and another to exit. Hand sanitation stations are located near the entrance!
For those familiar with the Boardwalk area, you can see that the Ice Cream shop is next to the Boardwalk Bakery.
We can’t wait to go inside and see what delicious treats await!
Everything remained closed up until about 3:05.
And then we were in!
The Cast Members were so excited to welcome us to the shop!
There were big waves and cheers as we went inside!
The layout is very similar to the way it was at Ample Hills.
Social distancing markers were in place and we quickly entered the inside queue.
Your dedicated MickeyBloggers Greg and Elyssa were the first ones in line and there was no wait at all!
Below are some big waves from the team working behind the counter.
And also from those on the frontlines!
Below is the first look at the menu board. As you can see there are an array of tasty treats to choose from from the simple two scoops to the Bayside Brownie A La Mode!
There was a simple but nice array of flavors available including sorbet and no-sugar options!
We got a big thumbs up from the Executive Chef as we got ready to order!
Staff are still wearing face guards and hands are covered.
Here’s a first look at the ice cream case! Flavors include Vanilla, Chocolate, Strawberry, Chocolate, Butter Pecan, Coffee, Cookies ‘n Cream, Mint Chocolate Chip and Rainbow Sherbet!
Treats were served up in the classic Disney Sundae Cups which you can see below.
I don’t know about you guys but that Rainbow Sherbet is calling my name!
Below is another warm greeting from Cast Member Kenneth!
By the time we got our ice cream things were definitely starting to fill up!
Though the crowd was good at wearing facemasks inside and social distancing!
The signage inside the shop is definitely enticing!
Just look at that delicious Mint Chocolate Chip being hand-scooped!
Greg and Elyssa can confirm that it is as delicious as it looks!
Here’s a closer look at some of the individual flavors!
We wish we could try a scoop of everything!
But we’ll settle for a simple scoop of chocolate instead!
We love that the menu includes non-diary options.
As well as sugar-free options.
Here’s a look at our final scoops!
Soft drinks and water were also available for purchase!
Staff were monitoring the doors to limit the amount of people inside!
They gave us a quick thumbs up and then it was back out to the Boardwalk!
This is actually the perfect location for an ice cream shop as we could easily find a seat and people watch!
One of the treats Greg and Elyssa got to sample was the Surfs Up Sundae it came with our choice of ice cream, whipped cream and a cherry!
If you’ll be visiting Disney World during those hot summer weeks that are just around the corner, don’t overlook this awesome new ice cream shop as an awesome place to order up a delicious treat and people watch on the Boardwalk!
