    is there a walk up wait list at beaches and cream?

    Hi Rod!

    Welcome back to planDisney!  There's a great, big, beautiful tomorrow and your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is just a few days away!  I'm sure you're looking forward to an amazing trip!

    Rod, Beaches & Cream Soda Shop is a favorite stop for our family.  While they offer a full menu of lunch and dinner options, we love coming here for dessert!  If you're up for the challenge, try the Kitchen Sink Sundae.  It's definitely something to share with your family or friends and will be a dessert you'll remember for a long time!  Advanced dining reservations are available and recommended for Beaches & Cream, but you can also check walk-up availability on the My Disney Experience Mobile App.  Once you are in the U.S., I'd encourage you to download the app as you can use it throughout your vacation in a variety of ways!  To check walk-up availability, you can click the plus sign from the bottom menu and then choose "Check Dining Availability."  Then you can select your party size and, underneath the calendar choose "Join a Walk-up List."  It's important to have your location services turned on and be near the restaurant as the app will only allow you to join a list for restaurants that are nearby.

    While walk-up availability is not guaranteed, I've been pleasantly surprised on recent trips to find good dining options with short wait times using the app.  If the walk-up list is not available for Beaches & Cream, you can find lots of other great options on Disney's BoardWalk.  One of my favorite "hidden gem" restaurants is located inside Disney's Yacht Club Resort - Ale & Compass Restaurant.  Try the New England Seafood Pot Pie if you stop by - it's delicious!  If you're mostly interested in Beaches & Cream for dessert, you'll be happy to know that they also have a walk-up window where you can place an ice cream order and enjoy your sweet treat as you stroll the BoardWalk area or at one of the outdoor tables.

    There's more than just great dining on the BoardWalk as well!  If your schedule allows, I always recommend enjoying a round of miniature golf at Fantasia Gardens and Fairways Miniature Golf.  My husband may or may not still be bragging about his come-from-behind victory on the final hole from the last time we played here!  You can also find surrey bike rentals available at Disney's BoardWalk Inn which is a fun way to spend some time when taking a break from the theme parks.

    Rod, I hope this information is helpful and that you enjoy a wonderful visit to the Walt Disney World Resort - you're almost there!  If you have any other vacation planning questions now or in the future, please feel free to visit me or any of my panelist pals again here at planDisney!
