    Hi Kari, I was researching resorts and can't figure out which would be best for us. We would like a beach property that's on the tram line. Any suggestions? Thanks😉 Diane

    Hi Diane! Thanks so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel and for sharing your question with me! It's always fun to hear from a fellow Texan!

    You will be happy to know all three Monorail Resort hotels (Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, and Disney's Polynesian Village Resort) have beach access. You will find the largest beach area at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. My family stayed at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort a few months ago and loved every minute of it! It's a tropical paradise and gave us a vacation within a vacation!

    For safety reasons, the Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake are strictly off limits for swimming, but you have unlimited access to the beach for everything from a morning jog to campfires and Movies Under the Stars. You can even "chart a course for fun" with motorized boat rentals or guided catch-and-release fishing excursions.

    While the daytime beach activities at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort are wonderful, my favorite time on the beach is at night. You will be awed as you watch the Electrical Water Pageant and the Happily Ever After fireworks showcase from your Resort hotel! It's absolutely magical!!!

    Thanks again for dropping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Please let me know if you have any other questions as you plan your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
