    We are considering joining DVC - are we able to go to Top of The World Lounge throughout the year if we are not stay on Disney property? We are AP holders & live nearby so won't always be staying at a resort when we visit the park.

    Hey there, Mark! Welcome to planDisney! I couldn't be more excited that you've stopped by with your Disney Vacation Club question!

    Mark, chatting with prospective Disney Vacation Club Members is one of my favorite things. I could go on and on (and on and on!) about everything that I love about being a Member, and the Member benefits, such as exclusive access to one of my absolute favorite places in all of Walt Disney World Resort, Top of the World Lounge, is at the top of my very long list. While Top of the World Lounge is still temporarily unavailable, I am SO looking forward to its reopening to once again enjoy that unbeatable view, snacks, cocktails and chatting with fellow Disney Vacation Club Members.

    While I cannot say what check-in will look like after reopening, I can tell you that before the closure, any Disney Vacation Club Member staying in any Disney Resorts Collection Hotel could access the lounge on a first-come, first-served basis. You would just show your Disney Vacation Club Membership Card and would then be escorted up the elevator to the 16th floor to live it up at the top.

    Mark, best of luck deciding if Membership is right for you and your family. Let me just say that knowing that our next magical getaway is always right around the corner truly brings joy to my life and made our Membership priceless to us. My only regret is not joining sooner! I hope to say "Welcome Home" to you soon, and I hope that you stop by any time with any question you may have!

    I hope to see ya real soon!
