Who’s Screaming for BoardWalk Ice Cream?! We ALL Are!

I scream.  You scream.  Hey!  We all scream for BoardWalk’s ice cream!  Well, we should, that is!  New to Walt Disney World’s BoardWalk?  Ample Hills Creamery!





My friends, their ice cream is heavenly!  Creamy and delicious, it’s worth its stout price.  Look at the choices!


We tried a small serving of their Ooey Gooey Butter Cake.  Wow!  Vanilla ice cream.  Cream cheese?  We’re in!



This small cup was $5.99, but it was, oh, so worth the price.  A great treat on a very hot day!  Ample Hills Creamery!  Go there!  You know you want to!

Menu Update: Beaches & Cream Soda Shop!

Good morning, my friends!  How have you been?  It has been a very busy week, let me tell you.  But, we’re back, and we’re ready to dive into more of WDW’s cuisine!

Hey!  Here’s a spoiler for you … some Food & Wine “fun and games” might be in our very near future!  Please stay tuned!  If you’re a Food & Wine Festival fan, you’ll have a blast!

In meantime, let’s make a quick visit to the Beach Club Resort’s infamous ice cream shop – Beaches & Cream Soda Shop!


Served with cheddar cheese, lettuce, and tomato on a freshly-baked bun, Beaches & Cream’s iconic Angus Beef Burger is generally recognized as the best burger on Disney property!

Beef Burger

I’ve had it … back in 2013.  Check out this post for a full review!  At the time, it was served as a Bacon Angus Beef Burger, however.  It definitely was a delicious burger!

At a 2013 price of $13.99, though, a lot of readers told me that they felt it was way overpriced … for a simple burger.  Well, jump forward three years, folks.



Beaches’ current “recipe” omits the bacon … and, now, costs $16.00!  Wow!  Talk about an expensive burger!  It better be phenomenal!

So, my question for you is this … where do you stand with regard to this much-talked-about delight?

Respond to the poll, below, and let us know!  Does Beaches’ burger get a “thumbs up”?  Or, would you take a “pass”?
