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

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 .

Are guests from other resorts allowed to visit the beaches and spend some time there, or is that considered the same as pool-hopping and not kosher?

Sure they can. Non-Poly guests come to watch Wishes at the Poly beach every night. As a Poly guest I have never been bothered by this, as those beaches tend to be kind of common areas anyway. I view this in the same way as a non-guest coming to eat in the restaurants or shop in the gift shops. No one is getting anything they haven't paid for in those cases. Pools are a specific resort amenity those resort guests have paid for.

Of the resorts we've stayed at, my fav beaches are in order

Poly, love looking out at MK and the Castle, but it is busy
WL a nice quiet beach, and fun to watch the electric parade from.
CBR. Love the hammocks. It also has lounges
BC/YC. Beautiful beach, but I don't like that the public walkway is right there, not very private.
All the resort beaches we've been at have lounges. Don't understand why CSR doesn't? Hard to enjoy a beach if you can't sit!!
