Holiday Fun at Villas of Grand Cypress

Make Villas of Grand Cypress your home away from home this holiday season. Create unforgettable moments and extraordinary experiences with our theme holiday events. 

Things To Do

Discover a new home for the holidays, complete with palm trees, twinkling lights, and extravagant holiday meals you won’t have to prepare. Though most holidays are all about honoring traditions, ours is as much about cherished past times as it is about new and improved celebrations. Holidays at Villas of Grand Cypress bring together the best of Orlando with everything you love about the holidays. Think challenging golf games, blissful blue skies, and world-famous theme parks with a side of family, fun, and the foods you’ve been looking forward to all year long. 

While our chefs prepare your favorite holiday dishes, you’ll be free to enjoy everything that makes Orlando holidays truly special. On the agenda? Breakfast with Santa, storytelling with elves, and an inspiring Christmas dinner--and that’s before you venture out into Orlando. Experience the holiday celebrations you won’t find anywhere else, like Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. Imagine fireworks, a parade, and plenty of family-friendly fun, all in true Disney holidays style. 

At Villas of Grand Cypress, you’ll encounter the best of both holiday worlds, whether you envision a celebration on-the-go or one that focuses on quality time with the ones you love. Relaxing and reminiscing are just as welcome as seeing and doing all that Orlando has to offer. You make the memories; we’ll take care of the rest.
