ONLY MINUTES FROM WHERE YOU WANT TO BE
Imagine a place where childhood isn’t confined to the first decade of your life, where the magic of those first ten years can rise up to remind you that, at some times and in some places, adulthood is overrated. That place is Orlando, Florida.
In Orlando, theme parks are almost as plentiful as palm trees. Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, water parks, and more are all within a ten-mile radius of our hotel, making the Villas of Grand Cypress the epicenter for the kind of childhood fun you’ve been craving to either keep for yourself or share with your own children. Kids by age and kids at heart alike deserve to return to the playground--even, and especially, if that playground involves roller coasters and sweet treats, big, black mouse ears and a photo in front of a castle.
Unlike other hotels near Walt Disney World and more Orlando attractions, the Villas of Grand Cypress allows you to keep one foot firmly planted in both worlds. CHAMPIONSHIP GOLF and WORLD-CLASS DINING will appeal to the adult in you, while easy access to Orlando’s best parks will keep the kids happy.
With so many things to do both in Orlando and at Villas of Grand Cypress, it would be easy to let your vacation get away from you--but we won’t let that happen! Brush up on the best nearby theme parks, then experience a selection of favorites through our BUNDLE PACKAGE.
The five Walt Disney World Parks need nearly no introduction, as they’re among the most sought after parks around the world. Disney’s Magic Kingdom alone welcomes more than 56,000 people per day, and that’s not to mention the pull of Epcot, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney Springs. Dole whips, Mickey Bars, and magical rides abound here, making these parks top of mind for both amusement park junkies and those looking to reunite with the animated characters of their childhoods.
Our top tip? Plan ahead! Take advantage of resources like the My Disney Experience App and park fast passes to ensure you beat the lines when possible, snag meal reservations when you want them, and experience every last thing within each of the parks before the day is done.
Featuring: MAGIC KINGDOM®,EPCOT®, DISNEY'S HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS™, DISNEY'S ANIMAL KINGDOM®, and DISNEY SPRINGS®.

Make a splash at Seaworld, located about 10 minutes from our hotel.

Think outside the Disneyland box with a trip to Gatorland, one of Orlando’s most popular (yet somewhat underrated) attractions. Thanks to the area’s theme park giants, Gatorland often flies under the radar for Orlando travelers, which is all the better for those who do decide to visit.
Covering 110 swampy acres just over 10 miles from our hotel, Gatorland is a hybrid theme park and wildlife preserve. The park features family-friendly fun, including everything from an observation tower to a swamp walk and zip-line. Guests will also be thrilled by the daily alligator and crocodile shows and training sessions, for which the park has earned the title “Alligator Capital of the World.”
Formerly the Coca-Cola Orlando Eye, the ICON Orlando is a 400-foot observation wheel. One of the largest observation wheels on the East Coast, ICON Orlando sits just 15 minutes from our hotel. Enjoy Orlando’s sights and sounds from over 400 feet in the air, giving you views of the both the city and lakes Orlando is known for.
After riding the ICON, don’t miss the other attractions within the 18-acre I-Drive 360 complex, like SEA LIFE and Madame Tussaud’s. Delicious eats and casual shopping options are also housed at I-Drive 360, making this a must-visit destination for every Orlando visitor.
