    Hi All! Is it possible to walk from Epcot to Beaches & Cream? If so how long does it take - - I need to make sure it's not too far for 4 year old legs:o)

    Hi Janette,

    Beaches & Cream is one of our absolute favorite spots for dessert at Disney!   It's an old fashioned ice cream shop (that has burgers and other fast-food, type items as well.)  My kids insist on a visit just about every trip!  It is definitely possible to walk from Epcot to the Beach Club Resort (where Beaches & Cream is located).  The walk, at a moderate (adult) pace will likely take about 5-7 minutes from the International Gateway Entrance (Exit) at Epcot.  However, if you'd prefer not to walk, there is a ferry boat right at that exit that stops at the Beach Club, and can basically eliminate your walk.

    If you plan on walking, I'd recommend a stroller for the four year old legs in your family.  Epcot is a huge park, and it's much easier to navigate at an adult's pace.  If you are planning on renting a stroller, you can return it right at the International Gateway exit, and then hop on the boat or walk to Beaches & Cream.

    Enjoy the ice cream!
