(UPDATED 11/7/19): The super popular Beaches & Cream Soda Shop located in Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resort is has been closed for several months for refurbishment which has been further delayed until January.
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 and the refurbishment didn’t get started until August 26, 2019.
As we suspected, this late start to the refurbishment has had an impact on the reopening date, and as best we can see the new reopening will be on January 19, 2020.
Looking online at availability for Beaches and Cream, all the dates before January 19th are blocked out. So as of now that means either it won’t be open before then, or if it is there will not be ADR’s available for it:
If you are going to be there in January or beyond, I would recommend to start making reservations while they are still available.
I know it’s disappointing for any guests who are going to be in Walt Disney World in November or December. However, Disney has promised an “improved experience” once it reopens, which we are still waiting to hear the details about.
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. Any time we stay at the Yacht and Beach Club we must stop here for a burger or at least one of their delicious ice cream sundaes.
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 is still closed, so no Kitchen Sink during this time. However Disney has set 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 finishing and reopening on January 19, 20.
