Guest Review of Beaches and Cream

By seating capacity, it may very well be the smallest table service restaurant in Walt Disney World, and the menu isn't the most exciting fare for dinner. None the less - it can be tough to score a reservation, Beaches & Cream Soda Shop is a great spot to grab an economical Disney meal and a great dessert! Even if you can't score that elusive dinner reservation, it's fun to stop by for a specialty sundae to go.

As for the food, I can personally vouch for the grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup, but let's be honest; the real star here is the ice cream. The soup and sandwich were good, but not particularly special, but dessert is another matter entirely. My personal favorite here is the Milky Way Sundae, but if you're making your first trip to Beaches & Cream, you have to make the pilgrimage with a group of friends and go for broke with the world famous "Kitchen Sink".

Served in a kitchen-sink-shaped bowl, the signature dessert has 8 scoops of ice cream (one of every flavor), every topping in the house, and a whole can of whipped cream. The next time you're in the area, stop by and surprise your friends with the order. They'll love the lights & sirens announcing that someone is going to tackle the challenge. The blend of unrelated flavors doesn't taste nearly as odd as you might expect, but for those who prefer a little bit more coordination in their flavor selection, the Kitchen Sink is also available in Chocolate Lovers and Neapolitan.

Beyond the food, Beaches & Cream is worth a visit for the atmosphere. The 1950's soda shop vibe is carried all the way to the tabletop jukeboxes. Be sure to take the kids and enjoy their mesmerized looks as you explain what a jukebox is! The servers are on point, as well. Beaches & Cream is an all-around good time and I enthusiastically recommend it to all Walt Disney World visitors!

Beaches & Cream is a Disney Dining Plan participant, but this is definitely not the place to get the most bang for your buck from your table service credits. It is also a Tables in Wonderland location, for dine-in service only.
