    Can DVC members still get access to the observation lounge at the Contemporary Resort? If so how do i make a reservation? Last time we just showed our pass and were allowed up to the lounge.A few years ago we made a reservation for the private area

    Welcome Home, Kathy!

    The Top of The World Lounge, located at Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort was a favorite of many Disney Vacation Club Members. It’s always fun and exciting to have an exclusive place to bring family and friends, and the observation deck offered fantastic views of the nighttime fireworks spectaculars at Magic Kingdom.

    Unfortunately Kathy, Top of the World Lounge has not reopened. The observation deck was open from July 1 to July 4, 2021, for Disney Vacation Club Members staying at Bay Lake Tower to enjoy the fireworks, but that was only a limited-time offering. No plans have been announced as to when or if the lounge will reopen. I know many are hoping it makes a return soon, particularly those Members whose Home Resort is Bay Lake Tower.

    If it reopens, typically reservations are not needed. The rules of who had access to the lounge did change from time to time, so I would advise reading up on the rules if it does reopen, or check with us here about the guidelines. At times it was only available for Members staying at Bay Lake Tower, and at other times it was open to any Member staying at a Disney Resort Collection Hotel.

    Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog, the Disney Files magazine for DVC Members, and the Disney Vacation Club Newsletters in your email for all the latest reopening information and announcements. And please feel free to send me any additional questions you have. I always enjoy helping my fellow Members!

    Wishing you Membership Magic!
