    Hi! We will be at Disney next week. Just curious if Top of the World Lounge in BLT will be open. Thank you!

    Hi, there!

     Welcome back to planDisney, Christina. We are just delighted to see you again! It looks like you'll be enjoying another Walt Disney World Resort vacation beginning tomorrow. That is so exciting! How will you even sleep tonight?

     I've only experienced the Top of the World Lounge once, and it was with some of my dear friends from planDisney. We stood on the observation deck for an incredible view of Happily Ever After at Magic Kingdom Park, and then we "lounged" inside with appetizers and cocktails. It made for a precious memory!

     Unfortunately, the Top of the World Lounge at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort is still unavailable. While you won't be able to enjoy this exclusive space for your upcoming visit, I have a few alternatives for you!

     Are you looking for an extra magical view of Disney Enchantment, the newest nighttime spectacular at Magic Kingdom Park? You may want to try booking a late dinner at California Grill at Disney's Contemporary Resort. This unique dining location offers great views of Disney Enchantment while piping the music into the restaurant! Another great option would be booking an Enchanting Extras Collection experience like Ferrytale Fireworks: A Sparking Dessert Cruise or a Magic Kingdom 50th Fireworks Dessert Party.

     If you're looking for an extra magical cocktail, you have a few convenient options! From Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort, take a quick monorail ride to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort or Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. At Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, stop by Trader Sam's Grog Grotto for a handcrafted, tropical cocktail. At Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, visit the Enchanted Rose where you'll find elegant cocktails fit for a fairytale. 

     I hope this was helpful, Christina. I'm wishing you another Disney vacation that is practically perfect in every way!
