    Our son and his family are our guests on our trip in June. At BLT the Top of the World Lounge can they enter with my husband and me? We are DVC members and on points.

    Hi, Dolly!

    You can't beat the view at the Top of the World Lounge at Bay Lake Tower!  (And the lounge itself is beautiful, too.)

    In order to utilize this special perk, be sure to have your Key to the World Card with you, which will have "DVC" printed on it. Because your are a Disney Vacation Club Member who is staying at Bay Lake Tower on points, you and guests staying with you have access to the lounge.  Our DVC Member site also states that "access is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis," so be sure to get there as early as you can if you'd like to view Wishes Nighttime Spectacular from this stunning vantage point. (I always bring my DVC Membership card with me, just in case, too...)

    To gain access to the lounge, you'll show your card to a Cast Member in the "lobby" of Bay Lake Tower, who will then escort you to a private elevator, reserved exclusively for Top of the World Lounge entrance.  Because it might take a few extra minutes to check-in with the Cast Member and be personally escorted to the elevator, we also like to arrive early enough to find a nice table, order an appetizer and drinks, and relax for a bit before the fireworks begin.  For those who'd like to claim a prime spot on the observation deck, this plan works well, too.  This way, you'll be right in the middle of your exclusive spot, with plenty of time to spare. The operating hours, at the time of this writing, are 5:00 p.m. until midnight, daily.

    Please let me know if you have any additional questions about Bay Lake Tower, the Top of the World Lounge or any other aspect of your upcoming trip in June!  Get ready for a fantastic stay!

    Welcome Home! (You know I just had to say that...)  :-)
