    We were initially able to get a B&C ressie for our January trip (1/2), but it was a bit later than I wanted. Lo and behold, I used the touring plans ADR finder, and within about 9 days I now have a ressie an hour earlier! Don’t give up hope :-)

    I originally could only get an ADR for 10 pm. Obviously, I didn't want to eat that late at night, but I was able to eventually get one for 4 pm. I would rather have one even earlier for lunch, but I didn't feel like getting alerts anymore. We are going swimming at BC and then will eat at 4 and head to HS that night.

    Mouse Dining has another reservation finder that is very good and free. Good luck. We have an ADR for 29 December lunch!

    We were just there this week with a group of 20 (10 kids, 10 adults). We were staying at boardwalk and walked over to B & C on a Friday around 6pm without a ressie to get a kitchen sink - no hot food. I know - crazy! They were able to accommodate us at the counter - 7 at a time. We had a table outside as well. 1 adult went in for the ordering and 6 kids. They gave us plastic cups and we scooped some in for our little kids who stayed outside. It worked out just fine and was really fun. Now granted, I know we got lucky!

    Many guest; 1 Beaches and Crème = limited availability. Imagine with no ADRs there would be tons of people physically showing up at the resort outside of the resorts pool entrance with a very small population getting served. To serve more the restaurant would need to move to a new location allowing the ability to expand and adopt a different service concept to align to the volume of guest. The themed experience would definitely change in the process.

    Yep, but at the same time business is about change and managing it. Nothing stays the same...everything evolves and matures. The era a great 1990's Epcot area restaurant is over. :( DDP changed many things. For some restaurants popularity grew as people became aware of various restaurants and other just wanted various menu choices...like steak, etc. Popularity has changed many places in a variety of ways. Some required ADRs...some downgraded meu options and others became signature restaurants overnight.
