LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – Get ready to scream for ice cream at Walt Disney World.

The resort is preparing to welcome its newest scoop shop, Salt & Straw, to Disney Springs on April 20.


The Portland based family-run ice cream company is known for its innovative, taste-provoking flavors that take fans on a never-ending flavor adventure. This is the company’s second time partnering with Disney. In 2018, the company opened a location at Downtown Disney District at Disneyland Resort in California.

“We can’t wait to meet you, Disney Springs! So excited to bring our scoops to “the Most Magical Place on Earth” in 2022,” the company said in a Facebook post last year.
