We’ve heard from many fans of Beaches & Cream Soda Shop ever since we posted about the popular spot’s planned three-month long refurbishment. Most of you (and us) wanted to know “when will it close?” and we think we’re getting closer to an official date.
Beaches & Cream is the super popular, super hard to get a reservation for, home to fun sundaes and treats including the Kitchen Sink, the No Way Jose, and now those Over-the-Top Milkshakes (which, as of yesterday, were no longer being served…we think because they ran out of the plastic serving cups…so they’ll likely be back soon).
On our current search for reservations in August, we’re finding no more availability for Beaches and Cream after August 5th.
August 5 is 178 days from today. Since you should be able to get ADRs up to 180 days in advance, the fact that nothing is coming up on the 6th or 7th is informative. In addition, operating hours are listed for August 5, but not for August 6 or 7.
When we called Disney World Guest Services for confirmation, we were told that no set date has been made public for the closure. We’ll keep working on confirming the closing date for you, but in the meantime, it’s looking like August 5th has potential as the final day the ice cream shop will be open. As always, we have to say that it’s not unprecedented for Disney to close off reservations for a location for weeks or months, only to open them up again a few days later. So there’s hope for those of you headed to Disney in mid-August.
While Beaches & Cream is closed for refurbishment, a “satellite ice cream parlor” will be opened at either the Yacht Club or Beach Club Resort — there is no word on if the sundaes and milkshakes will be offered at this temporary location or not. Read more about the planned refurbishment here.
Oh No Way Jose, we will miss you and you peanut butter and chocolate goodness while you are gone; we can’t wait to see you again in December!
