    Want to visit Beaches&Cream during Epcot visit for lunch. What's the best time to visit on a weekday afternoon in mid june? Is it quieter during the day when most people are park hopping? Or is it always crowded?

    Hi, Lisa! 

    Stopping by Beaches & Cream during your Walt Disney World Vacation is a great idea! I love the fun 1950s soda shop atmosphere, and the food (especially the burgers!) and sweet treats are truly crave-worthy yet reasonably priced. 

    As you probably already know, the restaurant does not accept Advance Dining Reservations. Generally speaking, the best times to go and avoid crowds are when it opens in the morning (or 15 minutes after opening to avoid the initial rush) or for a late lunch. The typical lunch hour and evening crowds can be quite heavy, especially during the summer months when there are more visitors at the resort.  

    I hope this helps, Lisa, and that you have a perfectly pixie-dusted Walt Disney World Resort visit! Please feel free to ask me any other questions you may have as you continue to plan.

    Wishing you magic,
