One of the perks of being a Disney Vacation Club owner is the ‘Members Only” Top of the World Lounge atop Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. the lounge has been closed since before the pandemic and has been undergoing a few updates.
On July 11, the lounge will officially reopen to a new villainous theme! It seems that while the lounge was closed some Disney Villains briefly settled in, leaving behind a few infamous portraits and accessories. There is also a new, Villain-inspired menu of fiendish fare – from “Cherna-Board” of meats and cheeses and herb-roasted “Unfortunate Souls Shrimp” to “Lair-Made Hummus” and “Who’s Afraid of Pork Belly Sliders” – paired with cleverly named cocktails like “The Other Side,” “The Underworld” and “Mirror Mirror Moonshine.”
Like the villains who lounged before you, toast to your travels and relish in rebellious recipes while swapping stories of wicked fun and plotting your next (vacation) escape before capping the evening with a rooftop viewing of the “Disney Enchantment” nighttime spectacular at Magic Kingdom Park.
