It doesn't seem like this could be a free DVC perk, even though the article doesn't say anything about costs.

I just find that these DVC events are not well thought out. I make my DVC reservations 11 months in advance and no mention of any events in August. Seems that August is the forgotten month. So glad I bought a guaranteed week in August at the Poly besides my other points. DVC, you listening: You needed to do something every week of the year. You have DVC members traveling every week and you are pissing many off. One DVC lounge in one park doesn't cut it.

I wish I knew about these well in advance. I would've loved to attend, but I don't arrive until Sept. 30th. I was also in WDW Aug 22-26th. I would've altered my dates to attend if I'd known!
