    Beaches and Cream is one of my favorite restaurants in Disney World. Is any day of the week less crowded? Every time we try and go the wait is over an hour! Any chance they'll start taking reservations sometime soon??

    Hi, Emily!  Beaches and Cream is my family's favorite place to get our ice cream fix while we're at Walt Disney World, and I've probably stood shoulder to shoulder with hundreds of people for hours and hours through the years waiting for my frozen sunshine!  

    I can't speak to whether or not they'll offer reservations any time soon, but your best bet for shorter wait times is to go at off peak times.  It tends to get really busy in the evenings, and if you go right at lunch time or right at dinner time, you're likely to encounter larger crowds.  If you could go for an early lunch or dinner, or a later lunch, you'll find the lines might be a bit shorter.  As for which days of the week are better, that's tough to predict.  I do know some locals pop in for an ice cream or sandwich on the weekends, so you might have more luck during the week.  I think off peak is really the best way to go, though.

    I hope your next visit is memorable for all the right reasons!
