I seem to be talking more and more about Disney these days on the blog. For those that aren’t Disney fanatics like us, don’t worry. It’s not a large strategic shift in the subject matter. There just happens to be a lot of interesting things about Disney I’ve discovered lately.
This one is a small update, but a cool one for families at Disney World, especially in warm weather. Disney Vacation Club members now have access to a member’s lounge inside EPCOT. It’s currently listed as a benefit for 2017 only; unclear if it continues after that. It looks like a cool place to recharge during a long day in the parks.
I haven’t been in the lounge yet but I plan to visit it during our “emergency” Disney World trip coming up. Here’s what the lounge offers:
- Comfortable seating
- Complimentary soft drinks
- Children’s play area
- Charging stations
- Computers with printers
- Member Services Advisors
The lounge is open from 10am to 6pm. It’s located on the second floor of the ImageWorks merchandise location within the Imagination Pavilion at EPCOT. To translate that into plain English, you enter EPCOT, head to the right after you pass Spaceship Earth. The Imagination Pavilion is located past The Land on the way to the countries (where Figment is).
The Final Two Pennies
The price of a Disney World park ticket continues to increase in price. For a family to get the most value out of a day in the park, that means staying as long as you can. On a hot summer day, getting to sit down in air conditioning and grab a free drink is a great way to recharge. Wi-Fi and the ability to charge your phone is a nice plus as well, though you could always decide to waste money on a battery like this.
You need to be a Disney Vacation Club member to access the lounge, so this obviously isn’t for everyone. Our family is sure to find value in it.
