Inside Epcot Disney Vacation Club Member Lounge

In June 2016, Disney Vacation Club debuted a lounge inside the Epcot theme park available exclusively to DVC owners and their guests.  

DVC Member Lounge

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.

It does look nice. I expect we will visit during our trip in October. It is great to get a free drink and snack and somewhere to get out of the sun.

We went on 2 occasions during our trip in July. It was very nice to go up there. We went late morning one time and early afternoon the other. It was relatively crowded each time (we did get seats together, but it wasn't easy, but we are 6). It was beautiful views, nice to have the soda and charging stations and great to have the snacks. We will continue to return as long as they offer this! :)

Does anyone know how our guests can get into the DVC lounge if we the DVC members are not physically with them at the time? Our daughters and SILs will be in EPCOT when DW and I are at a water park. Thank in advance.

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.

Have been there a couple of times now and it is nice (love the chairs). Only negative things I would say are: 1) No bathrooms as you have to go back outside 2) Carpet not the best quality (lots of piling). Made the comment to the wife when we were there last month that those two items gave the lounge the feel of something not permanent or even possibly short-term.
