Default DVC members' lounge-waits?

I've noticed a few posts mentioning waits for the members' lounge or no seating. So I posted a poll. I'm wondering if it's getting more crowded. We haven't been in over 6 months, and we never had a wait in 3 visits, and we always found a seat. So how many people have had to wait to access the members' lounge because it was full?

My option isnít available so I canít vote. Given a 20 minute wait time, didnít wait. It will be interesting to see the results of your poll!

I have only gone once, this past February......Walked right in and found plenty of seats to be available. This was around 1-2pm on either a Saturday or Sunday.



I guess we got lucky......I don't know.

I have only used twice - once the few days after the WDW Marathon this past January and about 2 weeks ago. Both times there was no wait and seats were available.

Located in the gift shop area near the exit doors of the Imagination Pavilion. There is a set of stairs with a small podium where a DVC CM stands.

Just go in the door where Figment gets out in the gift shop. There is a little desk as soon as you come in from outside. It is right in front of the stairs. They check you in, drop the rope on the stairs for you and then you walk up the stairs.

Iíve never had to wait and always find seats. Iíve been at least 5 times a year at all different times.
