Disney has announced that Top of the World Lounge atop Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort will reopen mid-July 2022.

As part of Membership Magic, a special hard-ticket event, the "Bound to be Bad" Fireworks Party, will be held prior to the opening on July 8-10. Members will revel in the darker side of their favorite Disney stories during a food-and-drink-filled fireworks party inside the newly refreshed lounge. Hosted by villain super-fans deviously decked out in their "Disney-bounding" best, this Membership Magic event includes a sinister spread of ominous appetizers, an open bar of cunningly crafted cocktails, and a raven's-eye view of the "Disney Enchantment" nighttime spectacular at Magic Kingdom Park.

This hard-ticket event will only be offered to eligible Members who are staying on Walt Disney World Resort property, who will receive more information about the reopening and event.

The location will typically operate daily from 6pm to midnight.

To gain access to the lounge, eligible Members should provide their eligible digital Membership Card (found in My Disney Experience). Eligibility includes Members with direct purchase benefits indicated as Y on the back of the digital Membership Card as well as a resort reservation at any Disney Vacation Club resort, or Disney-owned-and-operated hotel, at Walt Disney World Resort (booked with Vacation Points or cash within their Membership)

Does TOTWL play the soundtrack for the party shows like MVMCP fireworks?

From the DVC website: Party Size Eligible Members and their guests staying on that Member’s reservation are eligible. Each eligible Membership can enjoy Top of the World Lounge access for one party per day—which can include eligible Members and guests staying on that Member's reservation. At least one Member in the traveling party must accompany the group and present their current MagicBand, digital Membership card and government-issued photo ID in order to gain admission to the lounge and observation deck. A Digital Disney Vacation Club Membership Card is also required to verify Membership eligibility.

There are two ways to get up to the Lounge. 1. Guarantee your place by booking and paying for Wicked Wind Down. 2. Go to the podium from 5:45pm and put your name on a list to just go up. They’ll text when there’s a table. And I believe just before the fireworks they let people up too just for the terrace. Still gotta have that blue card though. You need to be “blue card” eligible to go to either. According to the rules you cannot take other guests up 7s less they’re staying with you. Not sure if that is a hard and fast rule.

I'm confused about the Wicked Wind Down. We are owners at Bay Lake Tower and going down tomorrow. On Wednesday our friends staying at Caribbean who are not DVC members wanted to go to the Top Of The World Wednesday night with us to watch fireworks and grab some food. I believe there is a Wicked Wind Down event. Can we still get in? Can they come in with us? Do they kick people out at a certain time to make space for the people coming for the event? Our friends have 3 adults and 3 kids in their party. Anyone have any info around this?

My bad.

It’s a video that shows both Epcot and TotWL.

Maybe I missed something? The ad, is for the member lounge at Epcot, right? Not the Top of the World Lounge at BLT. TotWL is villain themed. Epcot lounge is not.

It's an ad from Disney DVC, not a group...the company.

LuvtheGoofSep 23, 2022

Well, thanks, I have no idea what DVC group that is.

Club CooloholicSep 22, 2022

I couldn't tell there was a theme at all from that picture and the ad made no mention. That's all.

LuvtheGoofSep 20, 2022

I'm a member of the DVC FB group and don't see anything like what you seem to be talking about.

We're paid for it on our trip here in a few weeks.
