There is a place within Disney’s parks that has become a legendary open secret for its opulence and attention to detail. It is an ultra-exclusive (and expensive) club, and there is a long wait to get in. I am talking of Club 33.
The first edition of Club 33, which was accessed via a most unassuming door, opened at the first Disney park in California, in May 1967. Walt Disney himself passed away in December 1966, so he never saw the finished club, but his vision for it remained, and the club is adorned with artefacts from various Disney films.
It would seem there is nothing quite like Club 33. The food is said to be sublime. The atmosphere is rich with Disney history. With memberships costing at least $10,000 a year, the odds are also good you would be rubbing shoulders with powerful people, were you to get inside. It is also one of the very few places within Disney parks where you can drink alcohol, so you may even be able to pry loose secrets from those rich and powerful people!
If you want to see photos of this apparently glorious club, check out Disneyland Club 33, a fan site that has a host of details on it. The menus look stunning, and the prices are eye-watering!
