Ice cream on a hot Disney day is a special kind of magic! As much as I love a good ol Mickey Bar or sundae from The Plaza, if I want to be extra about my ice cream experience, I head over to Beaches & Cream. (Non-dairy frozen dessert options are also offered at this restaurant.) Recently renovated and expanded, this adorable restaurant is located at Disney's Beach Club Resort. Listed below are three reasons you might want a reservation at this "soda shop vibe" restaurant.
You want to experience the kitchen sink:
Ordering the Kitchen Sink really is an event. Check out the video below for what you can expect:

I personally recommend the chocolate kitchen sink. As fun as the original is, I once had a fruit bite mixed with mint chocolate chip that was not quite a delight. Whatever combo you get with the chocolate, it should blend well.
You want an insta worthy shake:
There are several restaurants on WDW property that offer milkshakes topped with extra goodies, but none are located in such a cute environment. If you’re looking for a precious Disney date, go split one of their milkshakes!
You want some casual comfort food:
I usually order the grilled cheese and tomato soup, or the chili & cheese tots if I’m in the mood for something savory. There is a selection of burgers (plant and meat based) and sandwiches as well. This is a must do on my personal Disney trips if I’m staying at any of the BoardWalk area resorts. If I’m staying elsewhere, I usually just stop by for a chilly treat.
