    Hi Jackie! Thanks for all the great advice! Planning to try Beaches&Cream on our next trip. What time does the check in podium open? Also, we'll be arriving Sat after Thanksgiving-which park would you recommend? I've heard it's very crowded that weeken

    Hi Sabrina!

         It is great to hear from ya again!  I hope that you are staying warm - we are in the 40s here in "Nawlins," so you must be pretty chilly up North!

          Ahhh, Beaches and Cream!  I've yet to meet anyone that hasn't fallen in love with this classic 50's style soda shop.  As it sounds like you already know, they don't take Advanced Dining Reservations - only walk ups.  They open at 11:00 AM, but you may want to get there around 10:30 and try and be the first guests.  They often pick a family of the day!  I know it sounds like a cliche at this point, but you just have to try the Kitchen Sink Sundae.   My family of 5 barely made a dent, so come hungry!

         Well girlfriend, I won't lie, that weekend will be CROWDED!  However, the rest of your stay will be pretty fantastic.  On Saturday, I would hit the Magic Kingdom or Hollywood Studios, but avoid Epcot.  Sunday will be another good time for the Magic Kingdom or Animal Kingdom.  Monday, head on over to Epcot or Hollywood Studios.  After that, the crowds drop dramatically and you should be comfortable wherever you go.  Have an absolutely amazing vacation and keep those questions coming!

    Much Pixie Dust,
