Beaches and Cream Now Accepting Advance Dining Reservations
I almost don’t want to report this since it is regarding a restaurant that I frequent on almost every trip. Plus, I’ve always loved the fact that I could only dine there via walk up. But as of December 18, 2013, Beaches & Cream Soda Shop at Disney’s Beach Club Resort will accept Advanced Dining Reservations.
Guests who visit the Walt Disney World Dining website will see that they can now check availability:
When checking, I did notice that it seems you will only be able to make reservations for parties of four or smaller. This quirk is likely due to the teeny size of the restaurant and its tables. (The restaurant boasts about 10 tables total and limited counter seating.)
Guests wishing to make Advanced Dining Reservations can do so both online and by calling (407) WDW-DINE. For those looking for just ice cream, you can still order some items at the Beaches & Cream To Go counter.

Bummer! Yet thanks for the update! I would hate to walk over there and get turned away because I don’t have and ADR.
So does that mean my family of 6 will likely be shut out?
With ADRs, it is conceivable there will be no walk-in availability at all.
I actually think this is a good thing. We usually stay at the Beach Club and it drives me nuts that we can’t make arrangements to eat there without waiting a minimum of an hour to sit down.
So, apparently I am not as up-to-date as I thought, since I had failed to note that Beaches & Cream accepts ADRs. I walked up to the restaurant on January 30th (my birthday) in hopes that the earlier time (5:30pm) meant that I could avoid a long wait, only to find out that reservations were accepted. They told me that they might be able to squeeze me in (we were a party of two), at the counter. I waited only 10 minutes before I was seated at the counter. So, since it was still an off-season, I didn’t have to wait, but next time I’ll make an ADR.
