We’ve known since June, 2021 that Salt & Straw plans to open a Walt Disney World location at Disney Springs. We now have a timeline on when the location might open. It looks like Salt & Straw should open at some point in the month of March.
According to Click Orlando (the website associated with Orlando television station WKMG), an email from Alison Hiatt, Salt & Straw’s Chief Market Officer states, “We are THRILLED to say we plan to open in March — exact timeline still pending construction — but that is our current plan.”
Salt & Straw will go into the spot that was initially intended to be for the Disney Springs location of Ample Hill Creamery. That store never opened, and the location at Disney’s BoardWalk never reopened after the covid-19 closure in 2020.
While this will be the first location for Salt & Straw at Walt Disney World, it will not be the first Disney location. Guests can currently enjoy Salt & Straw in Downtown Disney at Disneyland Resort.
Most of the Salt & Straw locations are on the West Coast, and the brand has a very loyal following. Salt & Straw started as an ice cream cart, and now has about 20 locations.
The ice cream at Salt & Straw is made by hand. The company uses local growers and farmers whenever possible.
Salt & Straw is also known for its unique flavors. From the website:
Our shops always scoop “classics”, but new flavors make their debut every series—and then disappear, sometimes forever. This ever-evolving ice cream exploration pushes us to keep collaborating, experimenting, and inventing.
While most ice cream at Salt & Straw is dairy based, the company has also perfected the art of dairy free ice cream. There are always at least two flavors that vegans and those who can’t eat dairy can safely enjoy; without sacrificing texture or flavor.
