    DVC since 2008-BLT, any perks for tour new DVC?(we will be at BC in July) also: is Jellyrolls up and going?

    Hi there Denise,

    Welcome back to planDisney! It's so nice to chat with a fellow Disney Vacation Club owner at  Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort, how wonderful you'll be heading Home this summer! Disney's Beach Club Villas sounds like a dream in July. I do hope you'll spend a chunk of time at Stormalong Bay, plunging down a 230-foot-long waterslide and then lounging on an inner tube floating all of your cares away down the lazy river. Once you've worked up an appetite, you're in the right spot; Beaches & Cream Soda Shop is steps away! While the to-go window doesn't carry the same full menu offered on the sit-down side, it's the perfect place to grab a cool treat. 

    I remember going on a Disney Vacation Club tour twelve years ago when I became a DVC Member. At the time, we received Fastpasses and a gift card and were delighted! (My daughters loved the ice cream afterwards). Currently, the tour incentive is a Disney Gift Card (subject to change) however, it is only for Guests who are not DVC Members. If you're interested in touring a Villa, each DVC resort hosts an Open house daily. Guests are invited to explore one of the 2-Bdr Villas and immerse themselves in the unique decor and layout of each one. Although timing may vary slightly depending on the location, here is the current schedule of Open House locations and hours:

    To schedule a tour, you can visit any DVC booth on the property and make arrangements or you can visit the booth at the resort during Open House hours, where a DVC representative will gladly guide you through the experience.

    Denise, I have good news regarding the very best piano bar on site: Jellyrolls! This popular nightspot is open and ready for Guests nightly - how lucky are you that your resort is just steps away! It is the place to go to hear duelling pianos while enjoying audience sing-alongs and much more. My pal Susan recommends arriving early as it fills up quickly and you'll want to get a good seat. 

    I hope this information is helpful to your vacation planning, Denise. Have a wonderful time at the Most Magical Place on Earth and be sure to visit planDisney again if you have any more questions. 

    Welcome Home,
