Are we talking about the address of Club 33? It's called Club 33 because its address is 33 Royal Street. It's right in-between the Blue Bayou (31 Royal Street) and Le Boutique Noel (35 Royal Street). They needed the addresses to be able to send mail.
Thanks for sharing your pics Lost Boy. I have never seen clearer pictures. Very Nice.

actually, they needed an address to obtain a liquor license from the State of California. At least, that it what I have heard.
Correct. Last week on my Disneyland vacation I took the "Walk in Walt's Footsteps" tour and our tour guide pointed out that the buildings are numbered here, and the streets named, because Walt Disney did not want 1313 Harbor Blvd, the address for Disneyland, to be named on a liquor license. He had all of the streets in New Orleans Squre named and registered with the city of Anaheim. Hence the address 33 Royal St, Anaheim CA.
Actually, on the tour we got to see the ground floor lobby of Club 33. It was at this point that each and every camera that had failed to record anything on the tour prior, or thereafter came out. Many of the group posed for photos in the elevator. Everyone in my tour group had heard of Club 33 and each of us, I think, felt we were seeing something very special within Disneyland! (Which we were).
Thanks for posting all of the photos! The Club looks fantastic!
There are many theories about the address of Disneyland that I have heard. One is that M is the 13th letter of the alphabet so the address is MM or Mickey Mouse. The other I have heard is that 1313 looks like two mouse ears placed on their sides. That's all I have...

Club 33 was not named that because he did not want 1313 on the liquor license. It was so named as the address he chose and te street names mde it on 33 Royal St. Hence the name, Club 33. If you want to verify this, you can call the State of Califnornia and get all the info. Liquor licenses are public information.
Years ago, Walt Disney felt that a special place was needed where he could entertain visiting dignitaries and others in a quiet, serene atmosphere where superb cuisine and distinctive decor would complement one another. He asked artist Dorothea Redmond to provide watercolor renderings of what such a place might look like. Accompanied by renowned decorator Emil Kuri, Walt and his wife traveled to New Orleans to select many of the beautiful antiques that are on display. After years of planning, Club 33 became a reality in May of 1967. Sadly enough, it was never seen by its creator because of his untimely death five months earlier.
Club 33, so named after its address, 33 Royal Street, is comprised of two dining rooms and several adjoining areas, all of
