If the building looks like an ice cream cone, then probably yes. We've only visited the Lake Buena Vista (closest to our home) store, the Ocoee location and the Kissimmee West store.
A bit of Twistee Treat Trivia: the Lake Buena Vista location is the only one that is not shaped like an ice cream cone because the town wouldn't allow it. It is the only one that has inside seating as well.

So does Ample Hills. I believe they even have Champagne floats there.

I looked at Beaches and Cream's menu and see they have shakes with a alcohol. Anyone know of another spot that offers these??
An option that we like is a nice black/dark beer and scoop of vanilla or chocolate ice cream ( try Italy or Germany for the beer then add ice cream from... anywhere.
Beer float - so "college days" but still good.

Here's a bit of Ample Hills trivia for you.

The chocolate used in their dark chocolate ice cream is Guittard chocolate, which is the same chocolate used in See's candies.

East coast meets west coast. See's plus Disney. Does life get any better?

It sounds like there are plenty of good ice cream options in the parks so maybe it's not worth the walk.
We have been to Beaches and Cream dozens of times through the years. We even had our daughter's wedding rehearsal dinner there 19 years ago. The service used to be great and the prices were cheaper, and the hot dogs were bigger but tasty. Hard to get a ressie now, so we don't go as often. Have had plenty of Kitchen Sinks with the kids and grands. Nice atmosphere. Would recommemd.

That's assuming I could walk around with either and not finish it off as I look for the other!

Also planning on one order with 2 spoons, and spreading this out over a few days.
You should definitely share the Kitchen Sink.

Oh my goodness. Have been glancing at this thread this week, but finally had time today to go back through it all and make a list of all these great suggestions....we've been buying blue bell on our last few trips (our favorite brand,) but this next time, I want to try all of your suggestions. SO many good ideas.
we will starts making ADRs very soon, and are considering Beaches/Cream. Also intrigued by the place in the Dolphin.
Really intrigued by the suggestions in Epcot. We've only tried the French place once, and it was good, but I had no idea they had all of those flavors, etc.

Thanks for everyone sharing all the great ideas and suggestions
