    How do you go to Beaches and Cream w/o a reservation? We have the dining plan and have reservations at another restaurant and always go to B&C for an ice cream. Can't make two reservations for the same night.

    Hi Deborah!

        Beaches & Cream Soda Shop is one of my most favorite places to eat in all of Walt Disney World!  You can eat or have ice cream at Beaches & Cream Soda Shop without having an Advanced Dining Reservation, but you will be sitting at the counter instead of a table or booth (walk up reservations are typically seated at the counter because the tables and boothes are for those Guests with Advanced Dining Reservations).  Keep in mind that you may have to wait a bit for a counter seats to become available because Beaches & Cream is in an extremely small space and it is very popular.  My tip for you is to go at off times like in the middle of the afternoon or later in the evening after the normal lunch and dinner times.  So you can go to your Advanced Dining Reservation for dinner and then make a walk up reservation for Beaches & Cream after your dinner later on that particular evening.

    I hope that your next Walt Disney World vacation is truly magical in every way!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
