(UPDATED 6/24/19): The super popular Beaches & Cream Soda Shop located in Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resort is closing for several months for refurbishment starting at the end of August.
Originally Beaches & Cream Soda Shop was supposed to be closed from early August to sometime in December as part of a renovation of the milkshake and burger joint. Now the time table has changed and the new starting date for the refurbishment is August 26, 2019.
No word yet if this impacts the reopening date, I wouldn’t expect Beaches & Cream to open before the very end of December at this point.
If you are going to be in Walt Disney World in August and you would like to go to Beaches & Cream then reservations are now open through August 25. Make them quick before they disappear!
Disney has promised an “improved experience” once it reopens, but they haven’t yet laid out just exactly what that entails.
Seeing that we spend at least one vacation in Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club every year, Beaches & Cream has become like home to us and it’s absolutely one of our favorite dining locations in Walt Disney World. You can even read about the time we tried to conquer the famous “Kitchen Sink” sundae (I’ll give you a hint, we didn’t win! 😉
Unfortunately while Beaches & Cream Soda Shop is being renovated, the walk-up window will also be closed, so no Kitchen Sink during this time. However Disney is setting up a satellite location where guests staying at the Yacht and Beach Club will still be able to get ice cream.
Our only knock on Beaches & Cream is the lack of seating, and we’re really hoping they are able to expand the restaurant and add a few more tables in there when it reopens.
In the meantime if you are staying at the resort, you can enjoy a delicious meal at the Yachtsman Steakhouse, Cape May Cafe, or the Market at Ale & Compass. Instead if you want something fast, head over to Hurricane Hanna’s by the pool and they can get you a burger and fries there.
The Beaches and Cream Soda Shop refurbishment is starting August 26, 2019 and probably won’t be done until the end of December.
