Which resorts have sand to play in?

Our favorite part of CBR are the beaches. But we'd like to try a new spot - any other value/moderate resorts with beaches?

It's a deluxe resort, but OKW has a sand area that our kids (12 and 9) love. There's no beach, it's between the pool and the playground.

YC/BC have a wonderful beach along with sand bottom pool at SAB, they're deluxe, though. My kids LOVED playing in the sand at SAB.

I believe CBR is the only mod/value resort that has a beach area.

As others have mentioned there are deluxe/DVC resorts that have a beach or sand area:
GF
CR
Poly
WL
Swan/Dolphin
OKW
YC/BC
BCV
GFV

There's also a beach at the FW campground.

Thanks All! Paying $300 a night is so foreign to me... Although we could probably afford it - will have to ponder this! The sandy bottom pool sounds fantastic - is that the same resort with the amazing waterpark like pool?

I tried to figure it out ... But what's SAB? TIA

My SIL has a camper, we have a tent - is there an area where we could share?

SAB = Storm-Along Bay, which is the name of the pool complex at YC/BC.
