Top of the World Lounge is now known as “Top of the World Lounge – A Villains Lair”. Quoted directly from Disney Vacation Club:
“Experience spell-tacular views while sipping sinister concoctions and nibbling on fiendish fare––for eligible Members only. Subject to capacity restrictions and operating hours.
Like the villains who lounged before you, toast to your travels and revel in rebellious recipes while swapping stories of wicked fun and plotting your next (vacation) escape. Cap off the evening with a rooftop viewing of the Disney Enchantment nighttime spectacular at Magic Kingdom park.
Beyond the new furnishings, delight in new menu offerings including carefully crafted concoctions, wicked wines, bubbling brews and ominous appetizers––including the new Seven-Lair Cake.”
Top of the World Lounge – A Villains Lair is atop the Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. It is exclusive to Disney Vacation Club (DVC) members.
Accessing the Lounge
Special Access to the Top of the World Lounge – A Villains Lair is available to eligible Members on a first-come, first-served basis until the lounge reaches capacity.
