In June 2016, Disney Vacation Club debuted a lounge inside the Epcot theme park available exclusively to DVC owners and their guests.
The Disney Vacation Club lounge is located on the second level of the Imagination Pavilion. The space was once open to guests as part of the Imageworks exhibit but until recently has been closed to the general public for many years.
The entrance is located near a spiral staircase in the pavilion gift shop. A Disney Cast Member staffing the location verifies entrance credentials and helps monitor the number of guests currently using the facility.
The lounge features complimentary beverages and snacks, cartoons for the kids, gaming stations and computer terminals, recharging ports for electronic devices and more. Note there are no restrooms available in the lounge. Guests needing to use the facilities are asked to inform a Cast Member when departing so they can be immediately allowed to re-enter upon their return.
The lounge is part of Disney Vacation Club's 25th anniversary celebration. Thus far, DVC has committed to keeping the lounge open through 2016. No word on whether it will continue to operate into next year. Use of the lounge is free for qualifying DVC members. Operating hours are 9:00am to 6:00pm daily.
Following is a thorough look at what is offered in the DVC exclusive lounge.

You need to show your DVC card and photo ID at the podium to enter. From my experience, they wouldn't be able to enter unless you are present. They make you check in and check out of the lounge. Maybe someone else has a different experience than I did. Good luck.
