If you're staying at Disney's Beach Club later this year, I've got some bad news for you. The popular Beaches & Cream Soda Shop will be closing for a lengthy refurbishment. What exact work will be carried out is unclear at the moment, but hopefully they will be expanding the dining area. There are never enough seats in here to accommodate the fans. The good news is that the original start date of this refurbishment has been pushed back.
Beaches & Cream Soda Shop will close on August 26th, 2019 with no reopening date officially announced. The refurbishment was previously scheduled to begin on August 6th, 2019. Disney has stated that the restaurant will reopen Winter 2019, but we have yet to see a firm reopening date. As of right now, there are now opening hours posted on Disney's website from August 26th to December 23rd, 2019. During this time, the to-go counter where some desperate fans pick up a milkshake to take with them, will also be closed. Disney's Beach Club is expected to have a temporary stand selling ice cream at an alternative location in the resort during the refurbishment.
