    Can dvc members still view the magic kingdom fireworks from a nearby rooftop lounge? We did this many years ago. I don’t recall the location of Igbo need a reservation?

    Hey there, Patty! Welcome to planDisney and Welcome Home, neighbor! I'm so glad that you've stopped by with your Disney Vacation Club question. I always love chatting with a fellow Member!

    Top of the World Lounge at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort is simply my very favorite spot in all of Walt Disney World Resort. Its location cannot be beaten, and in the past, it was my favorite place to take an early evening break from Magic Kingdom Park, have a delicious snack and a cocktail, and watch the fireworks from one of the BEST views around. No reservations needed! This beautiful lounge was a must-do on every trip, and we loved bringing our Guests here to enjoy the views from the top. Since this fabulous lounge is only available to Disney Vacation Club Members, it was a great place to mingle and chat with other Members in the most magical location. 

    Currently, Top of the World Lounge has not yet reopened, however since the website states that it is "temporarily unavailable," I am SO hopeful that this amazing DVC Membership perk reopens soon! While I don't know if or when the Lounge will become available to Members again, I'd suggest keeping an eye on the DVC website and Disney Parks Blog to get the official reopening news as soon as it drops. I know that I will be watching closely!

    While we are awaiting the exciting news of the reopening of Top of the World Lounge, I suggest booking a dining reservation at California Grill at Disney's Contemporary Resort for an incredible dining experience and similar gorgeous views of Disney Enchantment, Magic Kingdom Park's new nighttime fireworks spectacular. Even if your meal isn't during the fireworks show, save your receipt to be invited back up for some incredible views of the fireworks from the observation deck!

    Speaking of re-openings, did you know that Moonlight Magic, the after-hours DVC Member-exclusive events, are returning next month?! It looks like you might just be there for one of the EPCOT events, so if you are and you're eligible to register, keep your eyes peeled for a pixie-dusted email with instructions and a registration link to arrive soon!

    Bonus tip: If you remember the view from Top of the World Lounge, you may also remember the cake! While it is not exactly the same, find an amazing multi-layered slice of chocolatey deliciousness by ordering the Steakhouse 71 Chocolate Cake. Dine in the restaurant, stop by the Lounge, or even mobile order it to-go! ENJOY!

    Patty, I'm wishing you the most enchanting upcoming vacation and a lifetime of magical memories with your magical Membership! Please stop by any time with any of your vacation planning questions.

    I hope to see ya real soon,
