    We are planning a trip in August and would like to try Beaches & Cream. Can the sundae's and specialty milkshake be used as dessert if using the Disney dining plan or can you only choose from the dessert section on the menu?

    Hi, Renae! Thanks so much for bringing this delicious dining question to us! My family's favorite resort is Disney's Beach Club Resort, so we frequently have meals at Beaches & Cream Soda Shop. My preferred Disney day involves spending the day lounging by Stormalong Bay with a lunch reservation specifically for their No Way Jose sundae!

    This past year, the Disney Dining Plan's beverage and dessert options did expand and modify in several ways.  Currently, guests aged 21 and older may select an alcoholic beverage and all Guests may order premium non-alcoholic drinks with their dining plan entitlements. This does mean that while at Beaches & Cream Soda Shop, alcoholic and nonalcoholic milkshakes can be included as the beverage selection, and the guest will still be able to order entrée and a dessert. Your dessert options on the Disney Dining Plan include those listed under the dessert section of the menu and may include ice cream cones, floats, and single-serve sundaes. If you have your eye on a specific item, speak to the Cast Member serving you, as they will be able to clarify exactly what qualifies and does not qualify under your dining plan.

    I hope this helps you plan a splashtastic meal at Beaches & Cream Soda Shop! Thanks again for stopping by and please let us know if you have any other questions as you continue to plan your pixie-dusted adventures!
