Enjoy Beverage Tastings at Walt Disney World’s Top of the World Lounge

If you love sampling different alcoholic beverages (and are a current Disney Vacation Club member) then you definitely need to check out the Beverage Tasting Series at the Top of the World Lounge located in Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. The experience is limited to 20 participants (with a maximum of 4 people allowed in a party).  The tastings take place on select Thursdays from 4:30 PM to 5:30 PM.   Disney has now added a seasonal holiday themed tasting series that will be available on select Tuesdays from 4:30 PM to 5:30 PM. The focus of the event each week changes and could include beers, wines, bourbons, mixed drinks, etc. depending on the theme for the week.  The sessions also include small-plate types of food pairings with each round of the featured beverages at the event.
