DVC Members Only: Painting With A View

Does anyone have any experience with this? I didn't even know it was a thing until today.

Apparently, every Thursday you can explore your artistic side with a painting class at the Top of the World Lounge! Members and special guests are invited to join for an instructor-led painting class, putting paint to canvas to recreate a classic Disney picture. $50 per person, plus tax, reservations can be made by calling Member Services.

During this experience, you can also enjoy:

  • Refreshments: Delight in complimentary snacks, water and soda during this event. Adults ages 21 and older can also enjoy one complimentary glass of wine or beer. Additional beer and wine will be available for purchase.
  • Incredible Views: Top of the World Lounge is one of the most exclusive spaces at Walt Disney World Resort. It offers sweeping views of Magic Kingdom park from the 16th floor of Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort.
  • A Commemorative Keepsake: At the end of this event, you can take your creation with you"for a fun addition to your home or office!

Our upcoming stay at Bay Lake would be the perfect time to try this if hubby is interested. Or me alone if he isn't, lol!

If you do it you have to let me know how it goes! I think I would love this, especially since there's wine.

I'm assuming from the language here that you do in fact have to personally be a DVC member? You can't go as a guest of a member at this point, right?

Actually - from the DVC website:
