Inside Disneyland’s Secret Club Reserved For Only the Elite
Nothing beats a Disney lover’s high like getting exclusive access to Disneyland’s secret members only Club 33.
The private club is a secret feature of the Disneyland park and is located on 33 Royal Street in New Orleans Square adjacent to the Blue Bayou Restaurant. Hundreds of people walk by it everyday without ever noticing the entrance to the club recognizable by an ornate address plate with the number 33 engraved on it.
It was completed in May of 1967 and today it is exclusively reserved for members and their guests. As of 2011, there is a 14-year waiting list for new memberships. Here’s actress Vanessa Hudgens reflecting on her experience at Club 33.
The average cost for corporate members include an initiation fee of $40,000 and annual fees of about $12,000. Individual members pay $27,000 for their initiation fee.
I guess that is a small price to pay for those fans who are Disney crazed. Dining in Club 33 is the equivalent of being on Cloud 9. They love Club 33.
Dinner menus offer five to six courses with specialty dishes that include fried pheasant with brussel sprouts, Andouille Sausage Ragout and Pinot Essence, Colorado rack of lamb, and pan roasted lobster sausage.
