Eligible Disney Vacation Club Members with access to Membership Extras who are staying at a Disney-owned-and-operated hotel at Walt Disney World Resort (whether they booked with Vacation Points or cash) will have access. Guests staying on the Member’s reservation may accompany them. Eligible Members can enjoy the lounge with one party per day.
The lounge (or lair) will be open from 6:00 p.m. to midnight daily. Check-in starts at 5:45 p.m. Complimentary parking for Disney Vacation Club Members will be available starting at 5:00 p.m. Eligible Members must present their digital Member Card and photo ID. The lounge will be available on a first-come, first-served basis until it reaches capacity.
The lounge will have blockout dates for holidays and special event nights. So far, the following dates are blocked out:
There will be new villains-themed food and beverage options, including the Seven-Lair Cake. No outside food or beverages may be brought in.
There will also be new furnishings and artwork. Classes and events at Top of the World Lounge will be announced later.
Here is the backstory for the Villains Lair from Disney:
Discover the untold story of this covert hideout for some of Disney’s most dastardly villains. Even the ruthless relax.
Whether pursuing puppies or stealing souls, messing with a mermaid or belittling a beast, evil-doing is exhausting. And since a dishonest day’s work is frowned upon by mainstream masses, the deliciously devious decompress away from judging eyes––hiding deep underground… or on top of the world. Swapping stories of sabotage and toasting with tales of terror, the unsavory unwind in places inaccessible to the innocent.
So, when our own Top of the World Lounge temporarily closed its doors atop Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, it didn’t take long for the idle enclave to become a devils’ playground. We’re not sure how they got here (we can only guess by monorail), but we do know they were here. For when we returned to reopen this picturesque place to mingling Members, we found stuff left behind by these hustlers in a hurry.
Curious couture from their wicked wardrobes. Artwork befitting their ghastly galleries. And rebellious recipes for their cunning concoctions. That’s when we did what so many great Cast Members have done before us.
We gave the place a longer name. Welcome home to the Top of the World Lounge – A Villains Lair. Like the best Disney stories, it’s a place of magic… with a touch of tragic.
