    I will be staying at Bay Lake Tower in March for a week. Can I access the Top of the World lounge there if I'm a guest even though I am not a DVC member?

    Hello, James!

    Such a treat to be able to stay at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort. It's one of my home resorts, and the one I choose most often because of the location and the amenities. With it being a short walk right into the Magic Kingdom theme park, and a monorail away from Epcot, it's so convenient. 

    The Top of the World Lounge located at this resort is open only to Disney Vacation Club members and guests staying on their reservation. At least one member must accompany guests staying on their reservation, so at any time, to get into the lounge, you will need someone with a DVC membership. 

    If you're looking for a convenient place to grab a cocktail in the evening, you can walk right over to Disney's Contemporary Resort, where you'll find a couple of options for an adult beverage or light snack. The Wave Lounge is a personal favorite, with the calming ocean blue vibe and delicious drinks and snacks, or you can head up to the Outer Rim to watch sunset over Bay Lake. There's also an observation deck that will give you great views of the fireworks from the Magic Kingdom over at the Contemporary Resort.

    I hope you have an absolutely wonderful time, James!
