    We have a reservation for Beaches & Cream Soda Shop but was thinking of just going to Boardwalk Ice Cream instead. What's the difference and which would you recommend?

    It's always a great day when you stop by planDisney, Emmanuel! 

    I'm delighted you're planning a trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth! Speaking of magical, let's discuss your dining options. Indeed, you can't go wrong with Beaches and Cream Soda Shop or Boardwalk Ice Cream. I'm happy to give you a bit more information about both locations. 

    You're bound to have a splash-tastic time at Beaches and Cream Soda Shop! This is a spot where Guests can relax and enjoy a full meal. The last time I dined there, I devoured the Beaches & Cream Grilled Cheese Sandwich served with Creamy Tomato Soup. It was the perfect savory dish I needed just before we ordered the colossal Kitchen Sink. My family of 8 couldn't finish the massive sundae, but it was worth every delectable bite. Beaches and Cream Soda Shop is also known for its Specialty Shakes. These milkshakes bring the wow factor; they're huge and come in a plastic mason jar souvenir cup. You can even ask the Cast Member to rinse it out for you before you take it home. Check out the menu here to decide if anything catches your eye. 

    Next, let's discuss Boardwalk Ice Cream menu. Whether you're screaming for classic ice cream flavors or their signature Mickey Kitchen Sink Sundae, served in a souvenir Mickey Kitchen Sink, this is the place to be. If you'd prefer to have something savory along with your ice cream, you'll find the Boardwalk Deli nearby with delicious sandwiches and deli favorites! Reservations are not necessary at either Boardwalk Ice Cream or the Boardwalk Deli.

    If you have your heart set on Beaches and Cream Soda Shop ice cream and don't want to be tied down by a reservation, you can always check out the Beaches and Cream Soda Shop to-go window. This to-go window is usually open during the restaurant's operating hours. Although the menu of the to-go window is not readily available, I can tell you that it has a limited menu and serves some of the delicious desserts offered at the restaurant. This includes select ice cream flavors, milkshakes, floats, fountain beverages, adult beverages, and hard floats. 

    I hope you have an enchanting visit, Emmanuel. Sea ya real soon, pal!
