... I moved to Oaxaca, went swimming in a thermal pool in the middle of winter, got the **** taken out of me for wearing shorts and ate lots of chocolate before heading down to the beaches which were considerably warmer and had some unbelievable sunsets. Camped out and met some cool people around there before visiting some secluded lagoons where a South African guy taught me how to surf :) Then moved up to Chiapas where got a boat through an incredible canyon, visited some more ...
... This was like another universal but aimed more for adults. The rides were a bit more intense and had way more rollercoasters than simulators. I love rollercoasters. Some of the rides we went on were the hulk coaster, storm force acceleration, Spider-Man ride and Harry potter coaster! We went through the Jurassic park village which was great- we saw dinosaur exhibits and displays before heading into the Harry Potter park with castles, wands, displays, rides and above anything ...

We went over to Tinkerbell's nook and waited in line to see her. I had put Caitlyn's light-up Tinkerbell pin on her before we got in there. When we got in there, Rosetta was there visiting as ...

The Centre also has the original launch control room in the building and we got to relive the actual last few minutes of the launch of a Saturn V mission back in the 60's, complete with real audio and video footage.

Historical Traveler Reviews The Villas of Grand Cypress Orlando
We loved it!
My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon last year, and it was GREAT! The room and amenities were out of this world! I would definately recommend this place to anyone staying in the Orlando area!
If you need a place to stay in Orlando, you HAVE to check out The Villas at Grand Cypress. We loved it there. The staff was wonderful and the villas sit right on a golf course with a lake right out your back patio. They are only a mile from their sister hotel, the Hyatt at Grand Cypress, with free regular shuttles between them and you can use all their facilities for free, including a 9 hole golf course, tennis courts, two pools with slides, and bikes. There are three full golf courses surrounding the villas and they also offer you a discount to play at them as well. The villas sits at the north end of the disney resorts and there are backroads which take you right into the resort and park areas or you can ride their free shuttle over if you don't want to drive.
My husband and I spent four nights at this remarkable resort (July 1 - July 4). The grounds are beautiful and very serene. It was a very nice getaway from the Disney Park adventures of the day. We stayed in the double-bed, club suite with the golf course view. The view of the golf course was awesome and seeing the sunrise each morning just really made the stay even more enjoyable. I would have liked for the rooms to have made available a refrigerator and microwave, rather than just the overpriced drinks and snacks provided in the room. My husband drank a sprite which cost a whopping $3.75. Shuttle service was available at our every whim and all of the the staff were very accomodating. Having the ability to enjoy the activities at the Hyatt Grand Cypress Hotel at no charge, made our days full of great activities. We are looking forward to planning our family vacation with the kids next year. My husband and I will definitely take advantage of this resort experience again. However, with our kids for convenience we will stay at the Hyatt.
Good place far from action
Went here for a family vacation and visit to Disney with 2 kids. Villa was fine, extremely spacious, and beautifully appointed. The staff was super---helped with everything. Checkin cocktail was good after a long drive. The pool was okay--certainly not the Hyatt Pool, but at night was mosquito infested. Most of the amenities claimed by the resort are actually at the Hyatt, which was ten minutes away. Room service was great and abundant--but not many choices for dinner. If we golfed, we would have probably had a better time. The back way into Disney that the hotel suggested was great --still took 20 minutes to get to the parks. Could not see the fireworks from our villa--good view from the clubhouse. I think next time we will stay at the Hyatt.
All right, I know you've probably read A LOT of reviews about the 10,000 different hotels in and around Orlando. This review is for the guys out there that are looking for a special place to take your bride for your honeymoon, or for a future bride that wants to help her guy out. My bride and I stayed there a couple of weeks ago and I am SO glad we did!! I sat in front of the computer for a month looking for a beautiful, unforgettable yet a reasonable place to stay. After much searching I found the Villas. I payed a reasonable price, much less than a Disney resort, and got everything I thought I would and my wife is STILL talking about how good I did :) The staff is wonderful, it's close to everything in the area and best of all there aren't kids running up and down hallways!! The only drawbacks I found was that there were no in-room frig's or microwaves in the one bedroom rooms, and there are no vending machines to be found on the grounds. So if you want a soda late at night, it's either opening the mini-bar and buying a $3 soda or driving 5 minutes to the gas station. GAS STATION PLEASE!! Seriously, guys, this is the place to go if you want to have a memorable honeymoon. If you have any ?'s feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Best Place I Ever Stayed At
This was my 18th Trip to Orlando and the first time I stayed at the Villas of Grand Cypress. This was by fay the best hotel that I have ever stayed at in Orlando or anywhere else. The staff is friendly and can't do enough for you. The grounds are beautiful. There is so much to do here you never have to leave the resort. The room I stayed in was out of this world. It is hard to believe you can seem so far removed from all of the activities at Disney yet be so close. If you really want to unwind this is the place to go.
My husband and I just returned from our visit to Orlando. This was my 2nd visit to t he area and my husband's 1st. We wanted to run around the theme parks during the day, but preferred to remove ourselves from the Disney chaos and noise once we left the parks. We were very pleasantly suprised that our stay at the Villas allowed us to do both very easily. The location is excellent - there's a back way to the Disney properties, avoiding any traffic whatsoever. Also, the Villas are very close to I-4, which took us down the road to the Universal Studios parks and a trip to New Smyrna Beach (wonderful beach, by the way!)
We love this place!
We LOVE this place! We have been staying at Cypress point since our son was very little. It's an ideal location...off Disney property, but right across the street. It's actually easier to get to Downtown Disney or the Theme Parks from this hotel than from some of the Disney properties. The rooms are really spacious and well maintained. The amenities are fantastic! The pools, mini-golf, activities, and convience store make this an easy place to stay. I always check prices on HotelKingdom...they tend to run some really great rate rates.
The perfect place to stay in Orlando
This is a fabulous place to stay in Orlando - especially if you prefer to eat your breakfast in peace overlooking lakes and verdant golf-courses, rather than eating waffles with Mickey Mouse and 300 other people!
The property is quite magnificent and the Villas well-appointed and extremely spacious. The service is of a consistently high calibre and includes a very efficient and complimentary shuttle service - we never waited more than 5 minutes when we called.
You can borrow bikes to cycle round, as well as horseride or play golf on any 1 of their 3 courses. But the real bliss is that you can escape from the "other" Orlando of theme parks and discount designer outlet shops, but it's all only a few minutes away when you want it.
WOW! This is a first class resort and upon arrival, it was as if we were royalty. We were greeted at check in where our car doors were graciously opened and a complimentary drink was available. Following check in a concierge hopped in a golf cart to lead us to our room and bring in our luggage. We travel a lot and the Villas were a treat! They are all located along the golf course and have beautiful views outside your personal patio. The pool was beautiful with a waterfall and there were only 4 other people there in the middle of the day. Their poolside service was excellent and made to order smoothies were wonderful. Their dining rooms were great at the clubhouse. The golf range is free for guests of the Villas, they load you up with clubs and a cart to use.
