Interesting to see today the Disney Enchantment Fireworks will be offered 2x on select dates in July. I wonder if/how this will effect attendance at TOWL?

I have a one night at BLT on 7/21 and am excited to go up top once again...or twice in a night now lol.

That is good to know. We are going with friends in October and they are staying on our points.

So happy the lounge is opening! We are looking forward to going there again.

Yes. You are considered a guest until midnight on check out day.

Does anyone know if the lounges (TOWL and Epcot ) are paid out of the general budget or are the supported by MFs. I am guessing general budget but I have never looked it up.

Neither are paid for by MFs. The TOWL is considered commercial space. Epcot is paid out of DVD as a perk. That's how both can be limited to Membership Extras only.

When I bought resale (post-2016 restrictions) I was eligible for TOTWL and pool hopping and I think that’s it. Neither was classified as a “membership extra” in the vein of AP discounts and the rest. But I guess they can just move whatever they want into that category whenever they want? So even though I was eligible for the lounge when I bought that still doesn’t get me grandfathered? I dunno. That seems kinda crappy.

Free DVD rentals and pool hopping too.

And unfortunately they can remove perks at any time for anyone with DVC. If we got the same perks we had when I bought in, there'd be nothing really at all for anyone.

So who IS eligible to access TOTWL theses days? We have 310 BLT points bought direct and have not been allowed up because we were not staying at BLT at the time. That was a while ago but they change the rules so often that it’s confusing at best.

Blue card holders/those with DVC-Y designation.

Early on in the opening TOWL was only available to those staying at BLT. That changed rather quickly though. It's been open to all staying onsite for a long time.
