Default How much time do you spend in the DVC Lounge at Epcot?

So I have to wonder, how long do people stay in the lounge on average? And white time frame does everyone feel is appropriate? I still tend to park commando my visits, so I just can't see going to a park to spend much time in a lounge. I realize that everyone vacations differently, so I thought I would ask!

This isn't meant to be judgmental! I'm truly just curious about how others vacation.

We absolutely love the DVC Member Lounge at Epcot, although for the life of me I can't figure out why...when I try to describe it, it comes out "meh"...but we stop in virtually every trip and just rest up for 20 minutes or so...the kids enjoy the video games; one time I printed out the next day's boarding pass....never have used it to charge up phones--sometimes we get a snack, sometimes we don't--the snacks are nothing to write home about--nice but not particularly special...availability of cold water is really nice--always get some of that...mostly, tho, it's just a quick pit stop to rest feet (always in shoes and never on furniture) and chill for a few minutes...

When we went, we had a drink and some snacks. Rested a bit, recharged phones.

Probably less than an hour I guess, I voted 30-45 minutes on average over 3 days. The first was Christmas Day with all of us, the next was just DS and I after a tour of World Showcase on New Year's Day and the last was everyone again a few days later.

I voted less than 30, but sometimes we are there a little longer. All we need is a chance for a few Cokes and A/C. Sometimes we do need to charge phones, and those are the days we are in there longer. I just think it's a good place to cool off and get a Coke, and that's about it. Maybe hang out until our last FP is ready, etc. that's about it.

We love the Epcot DVC Member Lounge and visit it almost every Epcot day. Our visits are typically 30 to 60 minutes. Itís a great place to relax and recharge (both us and our phones).

I also usually stay 30-60 minutes. Dependent upon air conditioning effectiveness (sometimes itís warmer up there than others, in which case I of course quickly leave) and seating availability.

I voted 30-45 but we seldom stop in. We did once on this trip to escape the heat and let the grandkids cool down. One took a nap. I might have too. 😄

Too crowded and too bright. But a neat place to check our. Really nothing there for me but free drinks.
