    What is the best way to get to Beaches and Cream from Epcot? Are reservations necessary? Thanks a million!!!

    Hi Lisa!

         The Beaches and Cream Restaurant at the Beach Club Resort is one of my all time favorite restaurants in all of Walt Disney World!  Beaches and Cream is a Table Service restaurant that does take reservations at the door.  You can't make Advanced Dining Reservations online or over the phone for Beaches and Cream.  You literally have to walk up to the door to put your name on the list and then wait to be seated.  Beaches and Cream is very small and it is quite popular.  A good tip is to be at Beaches and Cream for lunch when it opens around 11:30 am and you can be the first ones in for lunch. If you want to eat dinner there, my advice would be to eat before or after the normal dinner hours because it will be less busy and easier to get in.

         There are two great ways to get to Beaches and Cream from Epcot.  Both ways start off with going to the International Gateway, which is Epcot's backdoor that is located between the United Kingdom and France Pavilions in World Showcase. Once you walk through the International Gateway, you can take a Friendship Boat to the Beach Club Resort or even walk straight ahead on the walking path directly to the Beach Club Resort. Walking to the Beach Club Resort from the International Gateway is actually the fastest route because you often have to wait for a Friendship Boat to come.  Don't forget to try the No Way Jose Ice Cream Sundae or even split a Kitchen Sink!

    I hope that you have a memorable meal at Beaches and Cream on your next trip to Walt Disney World!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
