  • Trip Report My DL Dream Comes True...

    …and it was even better than I expected.

    About mid-June I get this overly excited message from my friend in Long Beach that she was going to get to go to Club 33 for her birthday and she was inviting my mom and me. Of course I was couldn’t even believe it because it has been my dream for a very long time to be able to set foot in there and it was finally going to happen!

    Club 33 Spoilers Ahead



    On Saturday we got over to the park at 8:30am and met four people of our group at the “C”. One in the group went over into Guest Relation to pick up our hopper passes/Club 33 passes and then we proceeded into the park. We did Space Mountain first (always a good way to wake up) then the Matterhorn and lastly Pirates. Some people had to change clothes to meet dress code and then we headed over to Club 33, meeting the other two people in our group one of which the reservation were under. We were actually outside “the door” with a bunch of people waiting to get in. The door bell was rung and the sacred door was opened. We all piled into the small entry and I was in pure disbelief that I was finally inside. We had to wait for a little while down stairs and even saw some people get turned away because they were wearing flip flops.

    When the time came four of us, including myself got into the beautiful elevator and took it up. We were escorted straight down the hall that then went to the right, through the bar area and into the dining room. We were seating at a table in the middle of the dining room which there were very few people in at the time meaning that we got really great service because we had several serves to just out table.

    We ordered our food and drinks which it was recommended that I get the Mai Tai so I did and it was so delicious. You just order your main course and then you go to a buffet where you can choose from a variety of food like fruit, cheese, crab, cold salmon and salad to eat while you wait. After I got my food I had to go see the infamous bathroom which it seems that the women had gotten the better of.

    The toliet...it was weird to sit on...lol


    This is when we discovered that they fold your napkins when you leave the table. One of the waiters, who were absolutely awesome and totally made the visit, was hilarious and was great with all the newcomers. We kidded him about the napkins, my teasing when he couldn’t work my camera for some group pictures and his relentlessness in trying to take my dessert plate. It started with me still using it and it ended with him trying to sneak it away from me, complete with all the witty banter. Speaking of dessert, it was amazing and beautiful. They were unique and simply delicious.

    A lot of our group bailed to smoke but I was having a hard time leaving. I went around taking pictures and getting excited over things that no else seemed to get.

    My mom and I bought the Club 33 pin from the merchandise case. I grabbed everything that I could with the 33 logo on it. I have the paper towels from the bathroom, the toothpick from my drink and the waiter left for me one of the cocktail napkins with the clubs address on it, an addition mint and one of their pens. Hopefully I will get invited again but you never know so I took advantage of this time. After three hours of being there I had to leave.

    We all headed over to DCA. Got fast passes for Soarin’ and I got everyone to go over to Toy Story Midway Mania because no one had been on it. I really liked it. It was somewhat different than what videos made me think but in a good way. I scored 119,900 which I’m not really sure how that is for a first time but I got a higher score than the rest of the group.

    Toy Story Midway Mania





    We got Tower fast passes and were on the way back to Soarin’ but I was still was wearing my shoes that I wore at 33 and so my mom and I went back to the hotel room to change shoes and clothes because man it was getting hot. Returning to the park, we all went to see Crush and were about ready to go to Tower when three of our group decided to go home. With this, I inherited three people’s fast passes that we seemed to have accumulated during the day. We go on Tower and after that the other three take off and leave us their fast passes. It was a fast pass dream come true!



    With these fast passes we were able to go on Tower again then Soarin’. Hopping over to DL we then were able to go on Indiana twice and Splash Mountain three times. We went on Splash three times in a row (first two times in the front) and got absolutely soaked. The wait was about 45 mintues in standby and with the rate that we went through, we were sure that there were people in the line that saw us go by them those three times. Actually which we were in line for Tower we were taking inventory of all that we had collected and man behind us said that he would pay be a dollar to know my fast pass secret…lol. I told him that the secret was to go with a large group of people and have them give you them. Genius, I know.

    Being totally soaked, we did a costume change at the hotel, came back to eat at the Plaza, did Jungle Cruise, Thunder (cause it’s best in the dark) and ended it all with a ride on Peter Pan. It was the best trip to DL that I had ever been on. Club 33 surpassed anything that I would have ever imagine. It was beautiful, elegant, full of charm, historic, best service and the best food that I have had. I had the steak by the way and it was to die for. It was a fantastic group that I was with and I would recommend going with a larger group because it just adds to the fun.

                    That toilet in Club 33 really weirds me out. How do you use it? I'm usually a squatter so that looks interesting to me.

                          This is what it looks like with the lid up. The shape made it awkward but hey it's cool looking.

                            Thanks for sharing, I could almost taste the dessert, it looked so good. The closest I'll ever get to Club 33 is the Blue Bayou, probably. I haven't been to the park since June so I'm starting to get the urge.

                              It had been 13 months since I had been there and this was an unplanned trip but it was one of the greatest. I hope that you get to go sometime. Every Disney fan should be able to experience it.
