Ahh ok, yes that is different.

Clearly then, I realized that the pair in front of us wanted to go up, but did not have a clue about what a blue member card is.

I didn't listen anymore & the father & son eventually walked away. I have no idea if they got up or not.
So where exactly do you go to be allowed to go up? Are their certain elevators that go right to the lounge? Do you have to go thru CR to get to the BLT or does the BLT have it's own 'front door'??
edit.. nm.. i do see the BIG OLE main entrance lol... So just go in there and request to go up?

Yes, BLT has a front desk at the entrance. You go there first, speak with a CM at the desk, who then has a CM escort you up in the elevator.

We were there last week (members, but staying on cash at the Contemporary), and it was moderately crowded. I would consider it a good showing, pretty much all the tables were taken up, but wasn't wall-to-wall people. I brought my two year old, and he was fine, we got him a fruit punch with a light up ice cube, and he was in heaven!

There were a few other kids up there, all behaving just fine. Kids are welcome in all the lounges in Disney, I'd hate to see them banned from this one. Over the years I've seen just as much bad behavior from adults as Disney as from children.

I do hope they keep it open to all DVC members, because I envision us using it a lot in the future. We frequently travel with a mixed age group, and it would be nice to have a place where we can comfortably watch Wishes and get a few drinks as well. I know some of you question as to why someone would leave the parks just to watch the fireworks from the TOTWL, but I think watching from a comfortable spot with a drink in hand sure beats out main street. I could see us doing this often.

Also once the DVC resort at GF opens, I think you'll see a lot of guests heading to the TOTWL to watch the fireworks if the perk remains open to all. It would be really easy to get there and back on the monorail line.
