    Kimberly from FL Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    I’m booking at Bay Lake Tower for July 2022. On booking screen in red, it says some recreation/activities, including Top of the World Lounge, are unavailable. Can you tell me what all exactly is unavailable? And is the lounge reopening for the summer?

    It's nice to see you back at planDisney, Kimberly –– thanks for bringing us another vacation planning question!

    Now that your arrival is getting closer, it's great that you're checking up on all the changes that are happening around Walt Disney World Resort.  Recently, there have been tons of updates, including the announcement that Hoop-De-Doo Musical Revue and traditional Character meet-and-greets will be returning this spring and summer!  But while all of these announcements are very exciting (and give me hope that life really is returning to normal), it can be tough to keep up with all the latest news.  I'm happy to share a few details about which activities are currently available at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort to help you prepare for your upcoming visit.

    Since Resort offerings are changing on a daily basis right now, I reached out to a Member Services Cast Member about Bay Lake Tower's current offerings and I learned that Top of the World Lounge is the only Resort activity that's currently unavailable.  The Resort's pools, cabana rentals, motorized boat rentals, Community Hall activities, movies under the stars, fitness center, and much more have been reintroduced for Guests to enjoy.  I'm glad to report that all the dining and lounge options at Disney's Contemporary Resort are open, as well –– including its newest addition, Steakhouse 71.

    Unfortunately, I don't have any news about the reopening of Top of the World Lounge to Disney Vacation Club Members.  However, I can tell you that the lounge was briefly open to Members for fireworks on New Year's Eve, so that gives me hope that it might be available again someday soon.  Like you, Top of the World Lounge is one of my favorite DVC Member Benefits and I'm ready to see it make its triumphant return!  For all the latest news and updates about Top of the World Lounge's potential reopening, be sure to keep an eye on Disney Parks Blog and the Disney Vacation Club website.

    It was so nice to hear from you again, Kimberly.  As always, if you think of more Disney vacation planning questions, I hope you'll stop back by!

    Have a Magical Day,
