    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.

    Coronado Springs has a beach area complete with hammocks in the Cabanas section.

    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. :goodvibes

    Yes, it's part of the Stormalong Bay complex. They have a lazy river, bunch of pools (including the zero entry sand bottom one) and a couple of water slides.

    At FW campground the parking area for the camper also has a sand area where you can pitch a tent. So you could go along with your SIL & share the spot. You would save a ton of money that way. There is a great beach at FW, not to mention pools & tons of activities as well as the boat to the MK!
