Default Ice Cream Tour

We are going home next week
Hoping to try something a little different this trip - ice cream crawl! Well, maybe not crawl, but we have had some nice ice cream experiences in past trips and thought this might be a fun way to experience WDW. So, I am soliciting recommendations!! We will be at Poly and plan to have a Dole Whip (it's the law), but need some tips beyond this go to.

Ready??? GO!!!

...and thanks in advance!

Beaches & Cream to Ample Hills to the ice cream parlor in France? Sounds like a lot of ice cream in a short period of time.

Have never been to Beaches! Any faves there? We are open to treats beyond a simple scoop

Also planning on one order with 2 spoons, and spreading this out over a few days.

The Snickers sundae! However, if you like peanut butter, the No Way Jose may be a better choice. We went with the idea of getting the Kitchen Sink, but we have some picky eaters, so it worked out better to get individual items .

If you like the dole whip there was a berry/cherry version at the new quick service at wilderness lodge that was fantastic. Northwest Berry Whip maybe? You can I get it with cherry vodka added also. If you make it over that way, give it a try. Also the brioche buns at the France ice cream place are really good.

LACTOSE INTOLLERANCE!! Just made me think of the scene in the movie French Kiss after Meg Ryan’s character has eaten too much of the French cheese.

Ample Hills - definitely by far and wide the best in all of Disney right now. Really good quality ice cream.

Beaches & Cream - Edy's ice cream so kind of icy to me, but like the No Way Jose - you can get it as a half serving because other wise it's a ton of ice cream

The Fountain - It's at the Dolphin and I love it there. Honestly better than B&C but not as good as Ample Hills IMO.

L'Artisan des Glaces - ice cream and sorbet that you can also get in a brioche sandwich

Crepes de Chefs - crepe ice cream (so good honestly)

Kaki Gori - okay not ice cream but good shave ice

Joy of Tea - ginger ice cream

Funnel Cakes in American Pavilion - ice cream on a funnel cake!

Italy - gelato again I know not ice cream but close right?

These are the ones I can think of in the Epcot area at least and would be good to do a crawl but OMG so much ice cream and goodness in one place! But those are the first ones I think of. I honestly don't think of ice cream many other places other than the ice cream on Main St. which is pretty much the same stuff (Edy's) as B&C. I will say cookies and cream with peanut butter topping is pretty good.
