The Disney Parks Blog confirmed that Ample Hills Creamery will bring its tasty treats to the BoardWalk area, filling a void left when the ice cream shop at Seashore Sweets' closed earlier this year.  Reportedly a favorite of Disney Chairman Bob Iger the small, Brooklyn-based company plans to open its first shop outside of The Empire State.  

Founded in 2011, the small ice cream vendor specialized in unique flavors like "Ooey Gooey Butter Cake", "Mexican Hot Chocolate" and "A Night at the Movies"--the latter a combination of popcorn-flavored ice cream filled with familiar movie theater candy like M&Ms, Whoppers and Sno Caps.

In a bit of Disney synergy, Ample Hills also features exclusive Star Wars flavors including "The Light Side" (marshmellow ice cream with crispie clusters) and "The Dark Side" (dark chocolate ice cream with espresso fudge, cocoa krispies and light chocolate pearls.)

Disney has not revealed exactly where the shop will be located but previous rumors suggest it will fill space vacated by the closure of ESPN Club's video arcade, adjacent to the BoardWalk Bakery.  

No specific timeline has been given for the shop's opening.  Nearby Flying Fish Cafe is currently closed for refurbishment and expected to reopen in the fall of 2016.
