Ample Hills Creamery opened in the spring at Disney’s BoardWalk and we fell in love with the delicious house-made ice cream! DFB reader Beth recently shared her Ample Hills ice cream with us – OK, it was just a photo but it looks delicious! Her selections? Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Cookie. Definitely a combo we need to try!
