Salt and Straw is expected to announce today that it will be opening a location at Disney Springs as it brings its hugely popular ice cream to Walt Disney World.

The Oregon-based company began as a small kiosk in 2011 and has since grown to include brick and mortar locations mainly on the west coast, including a store in Downtown Disney at Disneyland. Salt and Straw is known for its unique and creative flavors, including Sea Salt with Caramel Ribbons, Honey Lavender, Pear & Blue Cheese, Arbequina Olive Oil, and Cold Brew Coffee Cashew Praline.

Salt and Straw teased an announcement last night on its Twitter account, including a picture of a Mickey Mouse-shaped ice cream.

Although not yet announced, we understand that Salt and Straw will move into the space that was planned for Ample Hills in the West Side, across from Splitsville with an opening in 2022.

Yea ice cream for the store brand was under $3 for the standard large sizes honestly it seems cheaper than ever even accounting for inflation. At the same time individual ice cream places seem more expensive than ever.

Dairy Queen is great too. Frankly I'd rather just buy a tub of ice cream from the grocery store. But if Cold Stones around the country can charge that much, I don't see S&S prices being an issue in a popular warm-weather tourist destination.

You should see the place near us... It's as if they're DETERMINED to put every customer into a sugar coma. Candy rims, full-size candy bars, cotton candy, syrups, add-ins...some of the shakes are bigger than a child's head. ETA: Hubby is dying to try it. I can't see spending $50 for a family of 4 to have ice cream. (Yup...those shakes are EXPENSIVE.)

Coldstone around me used to be a bigger deal but eventually people got tired of the prices and just went back to dairy queen. Sometimes people just want to satisfy the sweet tooth without breaking the bank.

The Cold Stone and FroYo places we go to fairly frequently are $6-$8 per person. I don't see these prices as anything out of the ordinary. S&S's flavors sound delicious.

Being that I'm a spider I'd be willing to try bugs. But I want the flies on the side.

Awesome blossom, I'm just hoping they don't force any California laid back, tie-dyed points of views.
