    Is an ADR needed to sit at the bar at Beaches and Cream? We didn’t ADR for lunch there (two weeks from now), and , not surprising, nothing is now available. Thank you!

    Hi Thomas! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Your trip is almost here, and I love that you are dreaming about the yummy things you'll eat on your vacation! I'm not ashamed to admit that dining at the Walt Disney World Resort is my #1 priority when I visit. There are just so many delicious options to choose from!

    The bar at Beaches & Cream Soda Shop is first come, first served, and you do not need a dining reservation to sit there. Just keep in mind that it does not have very many seats and you should either arrive early or be prepared to wait. Even though your trip is right around the corner, keep checking for dining reservations there. You never know what will open up! Since plans may change for another Guest, you could snag a dining reservation right before the day you plan to dine there!

    One of my favorite things to do when my family stays at Disney's Yacht Club or Disney's Beach Club Resorts, is to go for a walk around the lake, explore the shops at Disney's BoardWalk and take a moment to sit in the swings on the beach close to Disney's Beach Club Resort. I recommend doing this when you are in that area for dining at Beaches & Cream Soda Shop. It is absolutely beautiful!

    I hope you have the BEST vacation, Thomas! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
