We were there last week, had dinner at the Wave, and walked over to TotW and brought 4 friends. Needed to show my KTTW key along with my membership card. It was wonderful...we watched the MVMCP fireworks, had a drink.

A stroll down memory lane for sure...DH and I took the kids ,then maybe 9 and 11 (they are now 46 & 44) to Top of the World for dinner one nite...We even danced and Phylis Diller was performing...
She mentioned she would have to" clean up her act" cause there were so many kids up there!

We were at WDW last week. We were staying at the Dolphin because we already have used all our points for this year. We went to TOTW with our DVC member cards on 12/6. At the desk the cast member refused us access because we were not staying at a DVC hotel on points. He actually was very rude. When we showed him the card, he barked at us saying "You're not allowed up there". When my husband tried to talk with him, he just shut us down. Even if he refused us in a nice way, it would have been fine, but he was extremely rude. I was surprised a cast member would act like this. So we took our money elsewhere to spend. They lost some income that night.

I believe you must be staying at a DVC resort along with being a member...they indeed were checking room keys along with the membership cards when we were there.

This is from DVC News (TJKRAZ's site) from the annual member meeting

Quote:
A popular member perk is being extended through 2013. All members staying at Disney Vacation Club resorts using their points can continue to access Bay Lake Tower's Top of the World lounge. Execs stresed that the resort does not have sufficient parking for non-Bay Lake guests wishing to visit the lounge--Disney transportation must be used to reach the resort. Due to expected high crowds, the lounge will be available only to Bay Lake Tower guests on July 3 & 4 and December 30 & 31, 2013.

That is great!

If you are going on the January 10, 2013 MC, we're getting together for a Pre cruise meet up there on the 9th!

I am guessing you dealt with the same gatekeeper CM I dealt with in late October. We were staying on points at a different DVC resort and he was still very rude, however we were allowed up.

As BLT Owners since sales started, we have NEVER been asked to vote on anything regarding the TOTWL.

DVC Owners have NO say what so ever in what happens within DVC. By way of our contract we have turned over all voting rights to the board of directors.
Thanks for setting the record straight. We thought it was odd that anything like this would be voted on and then re-voted on. Someone who knows should tell the cast members so that mis-information is not given out to other guests.

OP reporting back. I actually went to the TOTW twice last week. I was staying at the Contemporary. No problem either time - just showed my room key and my DVC membership card. The lounge was quite crowded both nights and people did appear to be ordering drinks, so I was glad to see that they were doing a brisk business.

I'm glad they're leaving this open through 2013. I'll probably go there several times during my two week stay next October.

Great on all counts! I enjoy seeing the fireworks from up high, so I'll be going there a few times in January and April. I'm with different friends, so I get to go a few times during each long stay.
