    We are staying at the Beach Club (Club Level). I had a B&C reservation, but when we switched our resort day I cancelled to try and get it the other day, but to no avail. Can you sit at the counter without reservations? I'm still trying...

    Hi Susan,

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel! With your vacation just a few weeks away, you must be getting so excited! You're going to LOVE staying at Disney's Beach Club Resort. My family loved the relaxing vibe, convenient location, and of course the incredible Stormalong Bay, which in my opinion is one of the best pool areas at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Whether we're staying at Disney's Beach Club Resort or somewhere else, we love enjoying a dinner at Beaches & Cream Soda Shop. With yummy sandwiches and amazing ice cream treats, I can understand why you're hoping so hard to be able to grab an advanced dining reservation! I'd definitely encourage you to wish upon a star and keep trying! Guests cancel reservations all the time, especially as the date gets closer and closer.

    If you're not able to find one, though, I do have a couple of suggestions for you. First, feel free to check with the Cast Members at the check-in stand to see if they're accepting any walk-up diners. While you might not have much luck during the heart of lunch or dinner time, you may be able to find a table in the middle of the afternoon or late at night. And if all else fails, did you know that they offer shakes, floats, and ice cream creations at their to-go counter located just to the right of the main restaurant?

    I hope that you'll be able to enjoy this delicious dining spot on your trip, Susan, and am sending some pixie dust that it will all work out for you! Have a truly magical vacation!
