    As a DVC member how do I access fireworks viewing at Bay Lake Tower?

    Hello Jon!

    Welcome Home! Thanks for stopping by to visit the Disney Vacation Club Moms at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. The Top of the World Lounge, located at Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort is currently still available to Disney Vacation Club Members throughout 2019!

    While access and rules have changed over time and could be changed again, currently, Disney Vacation Club Members and their guests who are staying at any Walt Disney World owned and operated resort hotel have complimentary access to the lounge on a first-come, first-served basis. There are exceptions to this, for example, if the lounge is at capacity, or if there is a special event, so I always recommend a back-up plan. On December 30, 2019, the lounge will be available only for Guests of Bay Lake Tower, and the lounge will be closed on New Year’s Eve for a special Member Event.

    To access the lounge, present your MagicBand and blue Disney Vacation Club Membership Card at the lounge check-in desk on the ground floor near the lobby. If space is available, you will be escorted up to the lounge! If you’re planning to view the evening fireworks from the lounge, I recommend you arrive early since that is the most popular time to visit. There is a lovely menu of drinks and snacks available, and the seven-layer cake is both amazing to look at and devour. Enjoy the Top of the World Lounge, Jon!

    Wishing you Membership Magic!
