The Disney operated BoardWalk Ice Cream will open today in place of the former Ample Hills Creamery on the BoardWalk.

Expect minimal changes on the interior from the Ample Hills era, and a new menu that is similar to Beaches and Cream on the other side of the lake. This unfortunately means no specialty ice cream like we saw at Ample Hills, and the menu will likely be based on Edy's Ice Cream.

Operating hours are 3pm to 10pm weekdays, and 12pm to 10pm Saturday and Sunday. BoardWalk Ice Cream is closed all day on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Gelato and ice cream, although similar, are not exactly the same, that's why I didn't compare Ghirardelli's ice cream with Vivoli's gelato. To me, gelato in Italy isn't better, it's simply the best. I should know. ;) Agree with 'nothing wrong with feeling differently'. :)

It wasn't the best gelato I've ever had either (had better in actual Italy) but it might be the best I've had in the US and was easily the best ice cream/gelato I've had at Disney. I don't think $1 more than Ghirardelli for roughly the same amount is too overpriced, but nothing wrong with feeling differently!

We didn’t bother last night as the line went past ESPN around 8pm. Seemed crazy popular but I can’t tell if that’s more due to there being no other options lol

The more you pay for food, the smaller it gets.

The gelato "portion" I got at that time was sad, gone in 3 or 4 teaspoons! 😄 It was good, just not the best gelato I've ever had. Still think it's overpriced, even for Disney.

Well, it's in Disney Springs (and at Disney overall) so you have to expect the markup. A single scoop at Ghirardelli is $6 and one at Vivoli is $7 -- I'd rather pay that price for Vivoli. Not that Ghirardelli's ice cream is bad; I just think the gelato at Vivoli is a lot better.

I liked Vivoli, but $6 for a tiny, sample size cup, seemed overpriced to me.

I didn't say I didn't like it. I even said better than expected. I'm adventurous so I tried it but of course I would not buy it on a regular basis.

It really is, the tiramisu flavor is my favorite and the epcot brioche ice cream sandwich can’t hold a candle to the bombolatos at Vivoli.

But you chose that flavor. They have standard flavors all the way down to vanilla as well.

First time I ever tried Salt & Straw in Downtown Disney was when they were currently offering their seasonal flavor called Creepy Crawly Critters which has crickets and meal worms. Better than I expected but it's not something I would want to buy to cool off obviously.

so you’re “the REAL Bob chapek”? 🤔

Yeah, there are definitely more flavors at the ice cream spot but last time I was there one of the flavors I got was terrible. And it's a flavor I normally like but it was just disgusting. Don't know what was wrong.
