Boardwalk Ice Cream Shop now open. Following Walt Disney World resort’s closure last year for the pandemic, Ample Hills Ice Cream never reopened. Before the shutdown, Ample Hills had filed for Chapter 11 and subsequently found a new owner. The new owner was starting to reopen in their home state of New York, but not here at Disney’s Boardwalk.
Without a doubt, we were thrilled, when we happened to be walking on Disney’s Boardwalk and spotted the brand new Boardwalk Ice Cream parlor. This was a chance for us to see if it was anywhere close to being as good as Ample Hills. Undoubtablaly, this is great ice cream. With many flavors to chose from also a decent menu.
The new ice cream parlor is located in between ESPN Club and Boardwalk Bakery at Boardwalk Inn. The exterior resembles the Ocean City, NJ, that I/we grew up with. Furthermore, the inside has the very distinct feel of a turn of the century ice cream parlor. It will be hard not to compare it to the elephant in the room, Beaches & Cream, especially it being so close.
This is a quick-serve, sit outside during a hot summer night and enjoy the view. While Beaches is a sit down inside, get off your feet, have a burger, and kitchen sink with the family. Personally, I prefer the chocolate ice cream at the new place!
I shared the Thundering Surf Peanut Butter Chocolate Sundae with 3 scoops of ice cream, it was more than I could eat alone. It should be noted here that this again resembles Beaches No Way Jose, minus the glass. It is definitely a different ice cream brand they are serving. 2 Scoops Vanilla, 1 Scoop Chocolate, Hot Fudge, Hot Peanut Butter, Whipped Cream, Chips, and a cherry. So yummy, check out the video below.
