Top of the World Lounge for Paying Guests Only 4 July

It seems Disney is only opening Top of the World Lounge up on 4th July to you if you pay $100 each for a dessert party.

Never mind if you are an owner staying at BLT. Hard luck.

I am now really worried theyll do this New Years Eve- think its almost a given.

What next 🙄

It will probably get cancelled, just like that paid event in Epcot where they tried to rip people off. I think (hope anyway) that people are wising up! 🤞🏼

I really hope you are right however I suspect not sadly.

YT. If the 4th July event is declared a financial success then have little doubt about it the New Years Eve one will be $150. However they will give everybody a Disney Pin worth at least $1

I am not a DVC member, but if I were, this would really annoy me because its people like you who gave Disney the financial security and platform in years gone by when revenue was not as big as it is today with all the film and TV franchises Disney now own, to create the business that we all see today.

It would seem that the thanks for that is to start to pull the rug out from under your feet.

I feel sorry for the Dibb DVC community on hearing this news, where will it end?

Disney conveniently forget it was the DVC Members who actually paid for the said Resorts to be built.

Notice the event costs $99 (plus tax and gratuity) per person and will include a buffet of small bites and desserts, along with beer and wine for those ages 21 or older.

I presume as it's worded per person there's no reduction those aged under 21 or in fact children and if so I can't see many families attending what should be a family celebration.

With only 3-weeks to go I feel really sorry for those families who had been planning on attending this event, hope there's a huge backlash which results in Disney removing the charges or at least not charging for children.

Edit to say that, even if i were there, i would not even attend on principle.

I seem to gather more principles as time passes !

Its not a great venue for children anyway. There is a large high wall and younger children cant see over it.
We ended up watching from inside through the glass as my dd couldnt see anything.
