Beaches & Cream... Typical Wait Time?
Thinking of going to B&C after our arrival on Friday afternoon for a late lunch. What are the average wait times usually on Friday afternoons? Just trying to plan accordingly. Thank you in advance!

Depending on the size of your party, a mid afternoon lunch should be just fine

We usually wait for the booths to open, so our usual wait time has been up to an hour. Avg, 30-60 min

You might want to check out the other recent B&C thread....the poster had a party of 16 ahead of him and was told the wait would be 60 to 90 minutes just to get a table. It is all luck, as far as I'm concerned. :eek:

Depends on when you go and LUCK...A safe bet for the least to No wait is be there for opening.The busiest times are traditional meal times ( Noon, 5-7pm) and after Epcot Closes /Illuminations.Any times other than that are hit and miss..I stay at BC resort almost every trip and I have seen no waits to 20-90 min waits.It just depends

It's anywhere from a half hour to an hour and a half based on how close you get to peak mealtime, and allowing for reasons beyond your control (seating of large parties that got there before you, etc.). Beaches & Cream is, by far, the smallest table service restaurant at WDW.

For best results, it's suggested you arrive there about the time they open the doors at 11 AM.

Late lunch you should be able to walk in and be seated barring any crazy circumstances. We usually time our visits there to be between 1:30 and 3:30 pm. No matter what day of the week. Those times are the most empty.

but stuff happenes. so dont count on this all the time.

Thanks so much everyone!

IMO, it depends on how busy Stormalong Bay is. We went on a Wednesday afternoon back in May and it was a 45 minute wait. It looked like lots of pool people were breaking for a late lunch at the time we went. The best time to go is right when they open.

For the 4 of us its normally been 30 minutes. The kids just run around in the arcade next door.

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 08:56 AM.
