So what area of the resort is just stunning? Just beautiful and relaxing without needing to go into an atrraction. Perhaps a good people watching area.
I love Fort Wilderness - in many areas, including the rocking chairs outside of Crockets Tavern/Trails End. The beach area is lovely too.
The Boardwalk is also a great place to go. There are so many more as well - the Polynesian beach, the Grand Floridian - I love walking around the Caribbean Beach Resort. Lots of beauty around the resort area!
I love the atmostphere at the Polynesian. In the afternoon, you can grab a cool drink at The Barefoot Pool Bar and relax on the beach. Last time we were there, we saw a wedding being performed overlooking the Lagoon! In the evening, the resort is very romantic when all the tiki torches are lit. You can hang out on the beach or go to the end of the dock to watch the fireworks over the Magic Kingdom or the Electrical Water Pageant.
People watching is my favorite thing to do at the parks. Some of my list is a good people watching spot but not overly relaxing, I'll try and list both.

The ENTIRE PARK! - save Dinoland

To go with the Rocking Chair idea that summerinfl had.....
There are rocking chairs outside the giftshop in Frontierland! I love to sit there and wait for the parade! I have met some very nice people sitting in those chairs!
