It is only for members staying at BLT. We had to show our member ID and room key in September. It is SUPPOSED to remain a members only perk, but we all know about DVC perks and how they change.
A guest is supposed to get the same perks as a member, and their key will say “member.” They were locking off an elevator and you needed a CM to let you in.
I will be there in Dec and will have several guest there too. I’ve told them that I can’t guarantee that they will be able to go up but try if they want. To me it’s not a big deal and it’s really a marketing tool. Yeah those common people paying “from” $425 per night can’t come up to the private lounge but MEMBERS can. :laugh:
Members staying at BLT are allowed to take personal guest to the lounge, space available.
