Can you go if you purchased via resale? Does CR have to be your home resort?
Accessing the Lounge
This special access to Top of the World Lounge is available on a first-come, first-served basis until the lounge reaches capacity.
As the lounge is most popular during the Magic Kingdom fireworks, arriving as early as possible will offer Members the best chance of gaining admission to this exclusive experience.
Available to Eligible Members
Disney Vacation Club Members staying at any Disney-owned-and-operated hotel at Walt Disney World Resort (whether they booked with Vacation Points or cash) may enjoy access to this exclusive space just outside Magic Kingdom park.
Upon arrival, Members must check in at the Top of the World Lounge desk in the ground floor lobby.
At least one Member in the traveling party must accompany the group and present his or her current MagicBand or card in order to gain admission to the lounge and observation deck. A Disney Vacation Club Membership Card is also required to verify Membership.

If you are talking about accessing the lounge, it used to be 4th of July and NYE were only for members staying at BLT. Those two nights now have special member events with a steep cost to get in. Now it is just July 3 and Dec 30 that you must be a member staying at BLT. It's all posted in the link from the member website that I posted above.unless BLT is at capacity. then you have to be staying at Bay Lake to get in. I have only seen this happen at xmas.
