Hyatt Grand Cypress : A resort to recover from Disney World

Every kid dreams of a trip to Disney World and seeing the Magic Kingdom, taking pictures with the princess and the beloved characters, going on the exhilarating rides. The last time we were in the Happiest Place on earth, the whole family caught the flu and since then we have stayed away from Disney parks. Not being big fans of rides and crowds we were reluctant in planning a trip to Orlando. It is hard on the parents lugging the kids, sometimes strollers and enduring the lines. 

When we started planning our trip to Orlando we agreed on 2 Days of Disney, 1 day at Universal Studio, 1 day at Epcot (where else can you visit so many countries in 1 day!? ) and 2 nights at a resort to recover and recuperate. We picked the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress resort, located just one mile from Walt Disney World Resort and four miles from SeaWorld.

The stylish luxury resort sits atop 21 lushly landscaped acres in the heart of Lake Buena Vista. Nothing soothes your spirit like some green vistas. Hyatt Grand Cypress was perfect, the kids didn’t mind skipping Disney for the two days at all. They had so many on-site activities at the resort that we wanted to stay longer just to experience it all.

The resort

The room was spacious for the four of us with a private balcony with views Lake Buena Vista. Dad and D played 18 holes at championship Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course. We loved the lagoon style pool and went around hiking and biking. They had a little sandy beach and plenty of kayaks and canoes as well. The resort can arrange for a hot air balloon ride as well but we didn’t try it.

The Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress resort was the perfect resort to recover and recuperate after a few days of long lines and rides at Disney.

  1. I think I would have to spend a week at the hotel recovering from Disney World! It looks like you guys had an incredible time, both at the hotel and around Orlando!

  2. While the building is not the prettiest, the grounds look amazing and the offer of things to do seems to be varied and fun. I love that you combined your trip to Disneyworld with a few days to relax. So many families go and rush back, only to return from their vacation much more exhausted than they were before!

  3. What a great place for a family vacation! There’s so much to do right on the resort grounds, such a good idea to follow up the park visits. Thanks for linking up with #wkendtravelinspiration!

  4. What a great place to relax! The Disney pace can be frenetic so it’s great to have a refuge to escape to for a few days of recuperation! P.S. The handle bars on those bikes are insane!

  5. I don’t hVe kids but love Disney world! Might have to check this place out on my next visit the greenness seems so serene
