Disney Vacation Club’s Imagination! Pavilion Lounge at EPCOT

Last updated:

The Imagination! Pavilion Lounge is an exclusive area located inside EPCOT’s Imagination! Pavilion. Opened in 2016, this lounge provides a space for Disney Vacation Club (DVC) members to relax during their visit to the park.

History

The Imagination! Pavilion itself dates back to EPCOT’s opening day on October 1, 1982. Originally sponsored by Kodak, the pavilion has housed the Journey Into Imagination dark ride since 1983. The ride has gone through several iterations over the years. In 2016, Disney decided to open up the unused second floor of the pavilion as a DVC member lounge. This space was previously home to an interactive area called ImageWorks from 1982-1998. The lounge sits directly beneath the pavilion’s signature glass pyramid.

The Imagination! Pavilion is located in EPCOT’s World Celebration area, alongside other key attractions like Spaceship Earth and the Festival Center. The DVC member lounge entrance can be found on the second floor of the ImageWorks gift shop, which guests walk through after exiting the Journey Into Imagination ride. Members must check in at the DVC podium in ImageWorks to access the lounge.
