    Interested in trying Beaches and Cream, but don't want to use a TS credit. Is there anything there that would count as snack credits?? Thanks!

    Hi Cathy,

    There's a reason why Beaches & Cream Soda Shop at Disney's Beach Club Resort is so popular. In addition to the charming, old time fountain shop theming details, what keeps guests coming back is quite simple...delicious ice cream! This is one place where my kids get a free pass in being welcome to skip dinner and proceed directly to dessert!

    Cathy, if you will be using the Disney Dining Plan during your upcoming trip, but don't want to use a table service credit while dining at Beaches & Cream Soda Shop, you have two options. Your first option would be to pay out of pocket for the meal, saving your table service credit for another dining experience.

    Alternatively, you may wish to place an order at the Beaches & Cream Take Out Counter. There are a number of delicious ice cream desserts which you would be able to purchase using the snack credits from your Disney Dining Plan, including ice cream sandwiches, ice cream cones, or ice cream floats. Outside the Take Out Counter you will find a number of patio tables perfect for enjoying your ice cream while taking in all the action at nearby Stormalong Bay.

    Whatever you decide, I have no doubt you will soon be a devoted fan to this wonderful old school ice cream shop. On a future visit, you may even want to throw caution to the wind and accept the challenge of trying to finish the Kitchen Sink. Be sure to bring plenty of hungry friends as this is no easy feat!

    Wishing you a wonderful Disney vacation with plenty of sweet endings!
