Our family is on on its second year as card carrying Disney World® annual pass holders. We’ve tried a number of properties in the area and keep coming back to the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress. Located just one mile from Disney Springs (formerly Downtown Disney), four miles from SeaWorld, and less than ten miles from Universal Orlando, it is a great home base if you are planning on visiting any theme parks.
It’s also easy to relax on property if that is more the vibe your family is looking for. Between the lagoon pool, 124-foot water slide, biking and walking trails, a rock climbing wall, or boating on the resort’s private lake, your family won’t even have a chance to get bored.
During our stay, we were in one of hotel’s Executive Suites. These suites are essentially two connecting hotel rooms with one side being the bedroom portion and the other being a parlor with a large pull out sofa and second bathroom. If you need even more space, it is possible to book a second room to connect to the parlor.
This property has a wonderful Regency Club which guests have access to if they book a club level room or if they have Diamond status with Hyatt Gold Passport. Access to the club has become almost a necessity for our family. In the morning there is a great continental breakfast spread with a hot item that rotates daily. Later in the day there is an offering of snacks and in the evening, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres are served with an hour of desserts and cordials following. All throughout the day the club has all types of beverages available including bottled water. All food and beverages are included with club access, the only exception being alcoholic beverages.
We will keep coming back to this property throughout our next year of Disney trips because we know the service is wonderful and consistent, the rooms are comfortable, and the views of the fireworks and sunsets are amazing!
