    For 2 adults which resort would you stay at? Reviews on Trip Advisor seem to favor Grand Beach. I have not stayed at either resort.

    While you state only 2 adults would be going, I would not book a studio (Cypress Pointe) or a 1 bdrm (Grand Beach). CP has no kitchen in their studios and GB has no balcony for the 1 bdrm units. The 2 bdrm units at both resorts are good. If looking at a 2 bdrm unit I would book Grand Beach over Cypress Pointe though CP will be cheaper in costs. CP is closer to getting to Disney property (if that is your reason for going) than GB. Overall both resorts are nice but GB is slightly nicer.

    Grand Beach is a much nicer property, as reflected in the points costs. Its away from the action though, if you like walking around.

    Cypress Pointe as it is walkable to many restaurants as well as Disney Springs.

    No elevators in Cypress Pointe condo buildings -- got to walk up 2 or 3 flights of stairs unless you get a ground-floor unit.
