Snagging a Seat at Beaches & Cream

Hello, everyone! I love to get ice cream Beaches & Cream whenever I stay in that area, but whenever I go in the evening I'm unable to get a table. They always say they've stopped seating for the night, even if there's over an hour until close. I don't mind eating outside in the summer, but next time I go it'll be winter. So....does anyone have any idea what time you have to get there by? Thanks in advance

Arrive early evening and not a bad wait at all like 5-10 minutes. 4-5 pm would be good. We ate spring break week with a 10 minute wait at 430pm

You must have gone during the busy season. When is the winter trip. We've always been able to just walk in.

My last trip was summer and the one before that was early December. This next trip will be MLK weekend, so I guess it'll be pretty busy. I'll try to get there before epcot and HS close and hopefully that'll help!

We had the place practically to ourselves late afternoon on MLK weekend. Don't go late; after Illuminations the place is a zoo.

I just sit there and think "Oh, pretty colors."
Now maybe some-one will pick me first for dodgeball

We usually go around 5:00 p.m. and don't wait too long, but we are only a table for 2 [or we agree to sit at the bar].
