Top 3 Reasons to Dine at Beaches & Cream Soda Shop

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: *This video was taken pre-renovation and prior to COVID-19 safety guidelines. I personally recommend the chocolate kitchen sink.
