    I'm staying at Saratoga resort in Nov. I want to go to the Top of the World Lounge at Bay Towers one night. I will have a rental car. Where can I park or how should I get there? What's the best time to go to see the fireworks? Thanks!

    Hi Nancy!

    Access to Top of the World Lounge is one of many Members Benefits available exclusively to Disney Vacation Club members, and it's one of my favorites. This modern, upscale lounge perched atop Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort boasts some of the most spectacular views of nearby Magic Kingdom and Cinderella Castle, making it a great spot to take in the nightly fireworks.

    As the lounge tends to be a popular spot during fireworks, I recommend that you try to arrive at least an hour beforehand. The lounge is a most relaxing place to spend time while enjoying light appetizers and delicious cocktails surrounded by incredible views of nearby Magic Kingdom.

    As parking is reserved exclusively for guests of Bay Lake Tower, I recommend that you use Disney's complimentary Resort transportation, taking a bus to Magic Kingdom and then walking over to Bay Lake Tower. Alternatively, you could drive your car to the Ticket and Transportation Center followed by a monorail to Disney's Contemporary Resort. From here a short walk across the Sky Way Bridge will take you to Bay Lake Tower.

    Upon arrival at Bay Lake Tower, you will want to present yourself at the Top of the World Lounge reception desk located in the main lobby. Be sure to bring your Disney Vacation Club membership card so the Cast Member can verify your credentials before escorting you to an express elevator servicing the lounge.

    Wishing you a magical vacation, Nancy, and a wonderful time at Top of the World Lounge!
