Resort with the best beach area...
 
Hi! I understand that some of the resorts have a small beach area. Any suggestions on which is the nicest?

Yacht and Beach Clubs have a nice beach. But you cannot go into the water. You can lie on and play on the beach.

We make it a point to go get some rest on the chairs at the beaches behind Yacht & Beach Club. Usually after hitting up Boardwalk Bakery.

Those two resorts have the best beach and pools.

We prefer the Poly. At night you can watch Wishes over the castle while in the pool or sitting on the beach. Truly magical :goodvibes

The Poly is our favorite. We love watching the fireworks from the beach and it's so relaxing lying in a hammock listening to the boat horns as the boats go back and forth to MK :cloud9:.

My favorite is the beach at the Poly. You can't beat a view of Cinderella Castle.

As PPs mentioned, you can't go in the water.

Poly definitely has the most active beach. You will see people using the chairs, kids playing in the sand, etc, it's right next to the pool, pool bar, music, and kids activities. At YC/BC the majority of the guests are inside Stormalong Bay, so you really don't get as much action around their beach area. I think this is mostly due to SAB having its own beach area where kids play in the sand and can actually get in the water. At night they do have movies on the beach that draw a bit of a crowd, but during the day you won't see many people there. At the Poly the beach is crowded most nights because of the great fireworks and EWP views. :)

WL has a wonderful beach. They have lots of lounge chairs and a playset for kids. It's so quiet and peaceful to read a book or view the beautiful scenery.

Many of the resorts have some really nice areas. I thought the beach by the cabanas section at CSR was really nice and cbr has a lot of nice beach areas. Both of those resorts were at capacity when we have stayed at them and the beaches were always empty. The Poly beach is beautiful but can be a little busy. WL and FW also have nice beach area. WL was empty when we were there but FW had some people but wasn't crowded.

It depends on your taste. I personally don't care so much for the BC beach. There's always a bunch of people .... walking to Epcot, riding surrey bikes, and the view across to the BW isn't that exciting. Love WL ... so relaxing and quiet and the view of neverending water and trees is all that! I guess it comes down to if you want quiet and relaxing or lights and people.

I think the Poly is my favorite out of all that I have gone to.

I can agree, although the pic above is spring break and as you can see the beach is always pretty dead. We have the water view every day from our house in MN so Disney's BW is a nice change.

Just don't go in the water GATORS! That's why the ducks swim in the pool
