Beaches & Cream - distance from Epcot

I remember we walked over there once from Epcot - but we were 2 adults and I can't remember the distance. This time we have an 8 year old - so can someone tell me please. We were thinking of QS lunch one day while we are at EP.

BnC is a TS not a QS.

Exit the International Gateway and it is about a 5-7 minute leisurely walk.

As the pp said it is a TS, with more counter service offerings ( and not worth the TS price if on dining plan). It is well worth going there for their ice cream though. We love to take a break and get a banana split or sundae.

Thanks for pointing out the TS - I didn't realize that.

It is a wonderful, short walk through the International Gateway to Beaches and Cream

So you need a reservation there even just to get ice cream and walk about the Boardwalk...?

They don't take reservations. They have a walk up window with limited options like cups & cones or sit down for the fancy ice cream dishes.
