Best Disney World Meals Under $20: Beaches & Cream Soda Shop

Disney World Beaches & Cream meal under $20

Updated for 2018!

Food is expensive at Walt Disney World, but if you look hard enough, you can find some excellent places for a great meal that won’t bust your budget. You want to make a reservation and then drop in Beaches & Cream Soda Shop over at the Beach Club Resort.

What can you get for under $20? Tons of entreés and sides, plus a long list of desserts!

Beaches and Cream Soda Shop at Disney’s Beach Club Resort was designed to resemble a boardwalk-style ice cream shop along the Atlantic seashore. They are best known for flavored sodas, malted milkshakes and burgers. With oldies playing on a classic jukebox, it’s time for some comfort foods and absolutely amazing desserts, at prices that won’t break the bank, especially compared to buffet style meals.

Dine inside or outside at a table overlooking Stormalong Bay, the pool shared by the Beach and Yacht Club resorts.

Definitely make an Advanced Dining Reservation, because Beaches & Cream does not have a whole lot of seating, and it’s a really popular place. Then you can park at the Beach or Yacht Club Resorts and have a short walk.

Let’s take a look at that 2018 menu…

Disney Beaches and Cream entree menu and prices

Entreés

 
Every single entreé is priced under $20, with half the items priced under $15. This is like a three for one deal when you compare that to the cost of Chef Mickey’s.

If you are saving room for something sweet after dinner, you can always order an entreé and split it in half to share.

Not hungry enough for an entreé? Order a side. This also leaves plenty of room for something sweet later on.

Our suggestion to save money is always to order water, but this doesn’t make for the most exciting Disney experience. (My kids like to remind me we can drink water at home. Sweeties, I drank water at home to afford this vacation…) Beaches & Cream offers a large selection of drinks for both children and those old enough to be carded.

Drinks

If you don’t have a reservation and the restaurant is full, you can always choose ice cream and beverages off their to-go menu.

I think Beaches and Cream is known by most Disney vacation fans as an ice cream and dessert haven, but their entreés are really tasty and certainly not as pricey as character meals and table service buffets. The atmosphere is fun, especially when someone orders the Kitchen Sink, and you’ll notice this especially in the summer, the air conditioning is always cold.
