Visiting Ample Hills Creamery at Disney’s Boardwalk
Boardwalks, summer days and ice-cream seem to go hand-in-hand.
On our visit to Disney’s Boardwalk Inn Resort, we came across Ample Hills Creamery. In planning our visit we thought about visiting Beaches and Cream (known for their Mickey Sink) at the Beach Club Resort located a short walk or boat ride across the way from the Boardwalk Inn. While exploring the Boardwalk we saw Ample Hills Creamery and decided to check it out instead.
About Ample Hills Creamery
Ample Hills Creamery is actually a trendy ice-cream shop located in Brooklyn. They have a handful of locations in New York. Their website states they use the best ingredients including hormone-free milk and cream from grass-fed cows and organic cane sugar. The Disney Boardwalk location opened in May 2016.
I am not a big ice-cream fan. I like it on occasion, but typically a bite or two and I’m done. The kids enjoy ice-cream and it’s great for making memories; especially when hanging out on a boardwalk where the smell of waffle cones and funnel cakes fill the air.

We visited one evening on our trip. Even before you enter, the lit up sign on the outside looks like it’s a whimsical fun place. It wasn’t too busy when we walked in but shortly thereafter the line got much longer.

Decisions, Decisions! Our Ice-Cream Order
My son wanted an ice-cream sandwich cookie, my daughter asked for the brownie sundae (which was gigantic so they were able to do a smaller version with one scoop of ice cream, a brownie, and some hot fudge. ) and I had the sweet cream and cookies in a waffle cone. My husband knew there’d be plenty to go around so he shared with all of us.
For the Ice-Cream Cookie Sandwich, they even heated the cookies first so they were nice and soft. They also heated the brownie for the sundae also. This may seem like a small detail but it really isn’t when it comes down to the taste of it.
The Sweet Cream and Cookies waffle cone was the most amazing ice-cream I’ve ever had. In fact, it’s a really good thing I don’t live close to one of these. This ice-cream could make me an ice-cream person. It was full of cookies and creamy- just amazing!
The Verdict on Ample Hills Creamery
Amazing. Absolutely amazing. Skip Beaches and Cream and go straight for this if you’re wanting ice-cream. Hang out on the Boardwalk and enjoy the entertainment and lights while you enjoy your sweet treat. It truly brings all the magic together.
