    Can you tell me how Beaches & Cream wait list works? Group of 9 spending Jan. 2 in DHS but leave for lunch(for 3 kids' bdays)at Beaches & Cream. I know it gets crowded. Can one person get there early and put our names in? If not, is 11:30 too late?

    Hi Elizabeth!

    Beaches and Cream is a must-do on all of our Walt Disney World vacations.  I love old-fashioned soda shops and Beaches and Cream delivers some amazingly delicious eats and sweets.  Waits can get quite long at Beaches and Cream because they do not offer Advanced Dining Reservations.  The restaurant typically opens at 11am.  The closer you can arrive to opening time, the better.  You'll want to avoid the lunch rush.  You can also do an early dinner around 3-3:30. I've found that time of day to be on the slower side, with much shorter wait times.

    I hope this helps, Elizabeth!  Make sure you save room and order The Kitchen Sink for your group. That would be the ultimate birthday treat (and plenty of sweet goodness to go around).
