Salt and Straw opened its location at Disney Springs in 2022 and, since then, has been keeping Guests on their toes with some wild flavor combinations. This ice cream shop first opened its doors in 2011 in Portland, Oregon. Since its start, it’s grown to include numerous locations across five states.

Salt and Straw was created by Kim Malek and her cousin Tyler, two individuals with hopes of building community but with no experience in making ice cream! Their unique flavors have put them on the map and kept Guests returning time after time to try new flavors.

About Megan Losey

As a Disney foodie, I love writing about Disney food and snacks. Some of my favorites are the Carrot Cake Cookie from Trolley Car Cafe, the Mickey Beignets from Port Orleans French Quarter, and the Apple Blossom from Port Orleans Riverside. When I'm visiting the parks, you can find me on Main Street taking in the good vibe of Magic Kingdom or relaxing with a drink at the Polynesian watching the fireworks from the beach. As a previous Cast Member, I will always have a special place in my heart for the Magic Kingdom, especially Main Street U.S.A.
