Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress

Hey Neighbors!

It is time to hear all about our wonderful time in Florida.  I just have to share one of the places that made our stay so memorable.  We were able to stay at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress.  Right near Disney!  I am telling you, this is one gorgeous resort hotel.  I am including several pictures and three slideshows.  All of the pictures (except three) and all of the pictures in the slideshows were taken by my family and myself during our stay!  I hope you enjoy the watching these. The first is of the hotel room itself.  The second is the hotel and the grounds.  And the last one is of us enjoying the resort!

There is a security gate at the entrance to the 1,500 acre Grand Cypress resort.  They had our reservation information and gave us a pass for entering the gate.  We drove up to the Grand Cypress and I went in to check in.  We were greeted and asked about valet parking, but because of our cargo trailer we ended up using the self parking.  At the desk everyone greets you by name and is extremely courteous, especially the young lady who checked us in.  Before actually going to our room we ran out to grab a quick lunch and then returned to enjoy ourselves.  It is a great escape from all the hustle and bustle of Orlando.

We had two rooms on the 11th floor with an adjoining door.  The rooms were beautiful and the view from the balcony was spectacular.  I actually left the door open when sitting at the desk working on my computer because not only could I enjoy the view, but I could hear the fountains below.  I am including several pictures of the rooms.  They were very spacious and more than comfortable.  The children loved riding the elevator to the 11th floor!

We could not believe the amenities.  Now, there is a fee for the amenities, but if you use them as much as my family did it is well worth it.  The children all took a long bike ride.  There are a variety of bikes available including Canopied Surreys.  They called me when they went down the path where I could see them from our room.  I was able to take pictures of them from the 11th floor.  They also went out in the canoes and kayaks.  The first time my son (17) and my daughter (15) went out together.  He laid back and let her do the paddling.  Needless to say, the next time they went out she took her own.  My 26 year old and 12 year old went out together also!
He decided to relax!

A beautiful day to go exploring!
One evening we walked over to the tennis courts so my daughter could practice with her new racquet.  We took plenty of pictures of  the lovely landscaped grounds.  We were able to walk along the water, see many different kinds of birds, and just spend time enjoying the scenery.  She had quite a bit of fun hitting the tennis ball back and forth. Along with tennis there is a golf driving range and 4 exclusive Jack Nicklaus Signature Designed golf courses.

We did not use the pool area, mainly because they were having so much fun experiencing all the other amenities.  The pool is a huge 800.000 gallon ½ acre, free-flowing lagoon pool that boasts 12 waterfalls, heated and non-heated pools, two whirlpools, new Water Slide Tower Pavilion, new Water Jet Splash Zone, new Rock Climbing Stations, rope bridge, walking paths, and expansive, wrap-around sundecks.

Isn't this gorgeous!
There are several beautiful places to eat at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress.  Unfortunately this trip we were unable to try any of them as we had prior arrangements.  I look forward to returning sometime and trying one of the restaurants.  One evening we returned to a snack in our room!

Another fantastic feature at the Hyatt is their Fitness Center.  Expanded from 1,000 to 2,500 square feet, this features the latest in Life Fitness Cardio equipment, complete with personal integrated LCD televisions for 24 hour access to state of the art  cross trainers, treadmills, Lifecycle, free weights, and strenght stations.

There is so much to do with the 21 acre lake with 1,000 feet of sandy white beach.  My family enjoyed a game or two of tetherball.  Also provided is beach volleyball, lounge seating, and hammocks.  Water sports on the lake include; paddleboats, kayaks, hydro-bikes, canoes, aqua cycles, and sailboats.   You could seriously spend a week at the Grand Cypress and have something to do every day without even visiting any of the usual Orlando area sites.  Although if you decide you want to visit one of the local attractions they have a shuttle service to take you.

The Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress is located 1 mile from Walt Disney World, off Exit 68 on Interstate 4 in lake Buena Vista.  The Resort's address is: One Grand Cypress Blvd. Orlando, FL 32836.  For more information call:(407) 239-1234.  Be sure to visit the website at:  The stop by their Facebook page and give them a "Like".  And be sure to find them on Twitter and follow.

I personally am looking forward to a return trip sometime and hope to be able to stay a little longer and enjoy the Grand Cypress and all the amenities!  Thank you to all those at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress Resort that helped to make our stay so enjoyable!

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
