Top of the World Lounge.

Can someone who is not a DVC member get in?

If you are staying as a guest of a dvc member, you can go in with the member.

Technically no, the TOTWL is suppose to be strickly for DVC members staying at BLT. But it really depends on how busy they are and the discretion of the CM letting people up. We are not DVC members and stayed at BLT on our friends points last year. We were able to watch Wishes and hang out at the lounge for a while.

The policy never changed. Sometimes people will get a CM that will let non DVC members up there. We were there last year. We are DVC staying at BLT so we got in just fine but they were turning away non-dvc members. They were actually turning away DVC members that weren't staying at BLT.

We were able to go up in early Dec. 2011. We were renting points and had to show our room key which said we were staying on points. They did not ask if we were DVC members and we didn't offer. When we got there we figured out why. There was one couple finishing their drinks and left shortly after we got there. That was it!! It was about 10pm and after Wishes. We stayed for a drink and looked around a bit. Our MK view room had a great view so we left and made drinks in our room (for free)!

That policy has hanged. TOWL is open to all DVC members:

I was so happy to have gone to WDW with a family that I am good friends with. I stayed at POFQ and they stayed at BLT. I often went to their room to meet up before going to the parks/meals each day. One night we had some time to kill and a very nice gentlemen took us up to TOTWL and he didn't even ask me if I was staying there. He may have just assumed since I was with the family that was staying there.

It was truly amazing. I was just taking it all in. The view from up there is spectacular. I was like a kid on Christmas!

We went during Christmas week. We are DVC members but were staying at OKW. No problem at all. We had to show our DVC cards and our resort cards. There were only the four of us and three other adults. A group came up with a bunch of kids and just ran around the lounge and outside, didn't buy anything, but that was all that was there. This was CHRISTMAS and it wasn't crowded, so I think they will keep the policy of letting any DVC members staying on points in the lounge. Just my opinion.

We stayed at BLT on my DH's Uncle's points. We aren't members. Went up to the lounge one night of our stay. It was nice.
