Salt and Straw Disney Springs construction - March 14 2022
Posted: Friday March 25, 2022 9:19am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Work continues inside and out at Salt and Straw on the West Side at Disney Springs.

The new ice cream store is expected to open soon as crews finish off the interior and prep the outside for its new look.

Salt and Straw is also in the process of recruiting staff members and is holding a job fair today, March 25, from 9am to 4pm at 1905 Hotel Plaza Blvd, Lake Buena Vista, FL.

Salt and Straw's arrival at Disney Springs was announced in June 2021, and will replace Walt Disney World's previous premium ice cream store, Ample Hills. The Disney Springs Ample Hills location never opened, and the BoardWalk location closed.

Anyone been by to see if this is coming along? It’s March! What I’m really asking is, did The Zach settle on a paint color? Tiles? BACKSPLASH?!

I’m always excited to try new ice cream places and enjoy my favorite flavor: vanilla with caramel sauce! It’s such a unique flavor! It’s totally different everywhere.

Was hoping this would be open by my trip in early March but probably not likely. Their ice cream is so yummy!

Has construction actually started on this? Really unsure of how they plan to make the March timeline.

mmmmmmmmmmmmm Cigar flavored ice cream. WHY is Sosa still open? This place will REEK like smoke unless they install some good filters/fans.
