Rumor: Is Star Wars Ice Cream Coming to Disney World’s BoardWalk?

Well, if you’re bummed that Seashore Sweets has closed, removing your option for ice cream on Disney’s BoardWalk in Walt Disney World, then you may want to pay attention to this… umm, scoop.

According to the folks at, it seems that Ample Hills Creamery products might be served in a new ice cream shop coming to the former location of the ESPN Club Arcade (the ESPN Club is still open, but the arcade section has been closed).

According to wdwmagic, the husband and wife team who run Ample Hills in Brooklyn, NY, secured a license to create Star Wars Ice Cream flavors: the Dark Side and the Light Side. The relationship has led to speculation that a possible new ice cream stop coming to the BoardWalk may feature Ample Hills Creamery handmade ice cream.

The Dark Side sounds like a feast for chocolate lovers and Siths alike. Per the Ample Hills Creamery website, it’s “an ultra-dark chocolate ice cream with espresso-fudge brownies, cocoa crispies, and white chocolate pearls (to represent the light still hiding in the dark, waiting to burst through).” The Light Side, meanwhile, is “a bright marshmallow ice cream with homemade crispie clusters, as well as a smattering of handmade cocoa crispies (to represent the dark side still lurking within the light).” 

Also from the Ample Hills website: “We start by using the best ingredients; hormone free milk and cream from grass fed cows and organic cane sugar. We pasteurize our ice cream base so that we can create individually specific flavors…” 

If this pans out, it sounds like nothing but good news for ice cream fans, Star Wars fans, Disney fans… and those not-so-rare birds among us who are a combo of all three!

And, you know what? Even if it doesn’t pan out and these folks don’t open a store in Disney World, there’s still STAR WARS ICE CREAM OUT THERE AND YOU NEED TO GET SOME!!!!!!!! Buy it here!!!


Would you be happy to see a store featuring Ample Hills Creamery at Disney World? Please let us know with a comment!

    I just looked at their website, it’s $36 for four cartons, (they only sell these online in a 4-pack) and $16 for overnight shipping or you can pick up for free in their ice cream shop.

    Ample Hills Ice Cream is awesome! I live a couple blocks from the original location, in the summer the line wraps around the building. I’m surprised that they are involved with disney because they only have a few locations.

    HA! If that’s the case then count me out.
    I do not care if I gain a bit of the force with every mouthful, that price point is ridiculous.

  4. Mike V says

    ShaeLee – I just checked out their website as well.
    When you said “carton” I thought you meant at least gallon size…
    It’s 36 bucks for 4 PINTS!!!!!

    I LOVE AMPLE HILLS! Their ice cream is like no other… Yes yes we know it’s expensive but so is everything else here in Brooklyn. We’re used to it. However, once you taste their products you’re hooked, regardless of the cost. I, for one, really hope this rumor turns out to be true.

    I’m from Brooklyn (born and raised), and this is too expensive for me. Not everything in Brooklyn is expensive. Brooklyn is HUGE, the more expensive parts are closer to Manhattan but if you go to areas like Bay Ridge, Bensonhurst, Mill Basin, Marine Park and Sheepshead Bay (to name a few), which are all beautiful neighborhoods, you find great eats for much lower prices than the Gowanus area, Park Slope, Brooklyn Heights and even some of Williamsburg and Greenpoint.

    A pint of Haagen Daaz will run you between $6-8 dollars so this is basically the same. I thought Gowanus was in Jersey so I was hesitant to pay the $16 in shipping but then realized crossing the Verazzano and the Outer Bridge would cost more. Once I verified that Gowanus is in Brooklyn (duh!), I ordered it. Who could pass this up?? I’ll have my husband pick it up on his way home on March 1st and get back to you with a review. <3

    Ample Hills is one of my favorite ice cream joints. You get what you pay for and their product is worth every penny.

    My take away is that Seashore Sweets, or some facsimile thereof may well be (re)-opening in the old ESPN Arcade…. THAT should make tons of folks happy. I was amazed at a previous post either here or on another blog-type where guests were downright distraught over losing Seashore Sweets. I’m happy for them!!! I’m sure Disney is happy too. Per CM’s that work on the Boardwalk, Seashore Sweets is way too busy to ever close permanently.

    @Bonnie — weird, since I live in Bay Ridge. Yeah, Bay Ridge is cheaper than Williamsburg, but as “HUGE” as Brooklyn is, it’s still way, way more expensive than 3/4s of the rest of the country.

    Forget the ice cream, they really need a quick service location. The BW Bakery isn’t cutting it for breakfast and dinner options.
