    Do I need to make reservations at Top of the World?

    Hi Melissa! Welcome back to planDisney!

    I'm excited about your upcoming trip to the Walt Disney World Resort in the new yEAR! With the 50th Anniversary Celebration extending into 2023, you'll be arriving just in time to enjoy all of the festivities. Make sure to include Disney Enchantment and Harmonious in your plans, since each of these nighttime spectaculars will be coming to an end at the end of the celebration. 

    One of the many perks of being a Disney Vacation Club member is having access to the Top of the World Lounge – A Villains Lair. This hideout recently re-opened its doors and is located atop Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Luckily, reservations are not required at this location since it operates on a first-come, first-serve basis. However, if you are a planner like me, you may want to look into the Wicked Wind Down package that this location is currently offering. This package guarantees you a spot in the lounge on a particular evening and includes a cocktail, appetizer, and dessert. Reservations can be made up to 60 days in advance by calling Member Services at (800) 800-9800. 

    As I mentioned earlier, access to the Top of the World Lounge is only available to eligible members. At this time, you also must have an eligible Disney Resorts Hotel reservation booked using your Membership. The views atop the lounge are absolutely magnificent and overlook Cinderella Castle and the Magic Kingdom! You can even see the nighttime firework display from high up above Bay Lake Tower.

    Melissa, I hope you have a wonderful visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth!

    See ya real soon!
