  • [Question] Carthay Circle Theater Restaurant

    I have a question regarding the Restaurant that was recently announced for Carthay Circle Theater. Is it going to be a Club 33 style Restaurant or open to the public?

    I think it is supposed to be a general public restaurant.

      Thanks I really hope it will be open to the general public. I'm not set against a Membership only Restaurant for the park. But the Carthay Circle Theater is going to be such a giant structure and landmark for the park. That it would be a shame if the average park visitor was unable to experience the venue. Atleast with Club 33 the Restaurant is hidden and out the way. So the average park visitor has no idea the place even exist.

        I wish they'd be using the Carthay Circle as a theatre or attraction instead.

        I'd hoped they might recreate The Brown Derby (with the actual hat) as the new fancy restaurant elsewhere in Hollywoodland (since they had licensed the rights for WDW and even for that closed DCA sound stage food facility).

          I can't see how they would build such a big structure and then not let the public eat there...but on the other you never know because it's Disney!

            Yeah, this is the biggest screw up of the entry makeover. It's really frustrating that they didn't make this key feature of DCA's NEW entry into a showstopping attraction. It's just really irritating that all they are planning for this location, in the BILLION dollar makeover, is a freakin' restaurant. They could have used the Playhouse Disney/Disney Jr show building all the way over to and possibly even repurpose the Bug's Life 3D movie and queue - there is so MUCH space that they could have built an incredible attraction for this central structure of DCA.

              I would rather there be an attraction dedicated to Walt Disney and Snow White in there too. But oh well. It would be nice if they had pictures of Snow White's premiere in there. On some kind of displays of that in there.

                It'll be a general public restaurant but it's still unclear on what exactly it'll have. It's Lobby could still house some type of exhibit, the building is huge and multiple storied. I have no problem with this icon being a restaurant honestly. Magic Kingdom's castle houses just a restaurant and private hotel room. I'm just sit back and wait and see what surprises all of BVS will have.

                    Hopefully something sways them from making it an exclusive club. Something as grand and public as the new theater just won't work if inside is a secret club that turns away the average guest. The poor CMs working there will have to explain the concept every 5 seconds to unsuspecting guests :/

                      I dunno what makes the suits think that the restaurant would be more successful as a Club 33 type extension. People are paying thousands of dollars and are waiting years to eat at the original, not because it was exclusive but because it was a special and historic experience designed by the hand of Walt himself. They could work their butts off to replicate this in CCT, but rest assured many on that waiting list would not be pleased if they were told that all the time and money they wasted would have to be for the DCA version instead.

                      Besides that, the park is seriously lacking in table service restaurants which will be in greater demand after Phase 1 of the expansion is finished. This is a no-brainer here.

                        I really wonder if those are the only two serious options under consideration by TDA. With either of those options, TDA is headed down an entirely wrong road.

                        Where's imagineerings voice in what should be done with this PRIME piece of property that is front and center in DCA????

                        And WHY 3 years into this project, are they still trying to figure out what they should do with this building? Isn't that a bassackward way of doing things?

                        How about turning the Carthay into a Hollywood Version of The Adventurer's Club mixed with a little Mystery House.

                          Hi, Malin!

                          What I heard is that it's still undecided. Rumors I've heard include: Restaurant downstairs and Exclusive club upstairs; Blue Sky Cellar moves here; Bar downstairs, Public restaurant upstairs; Movie theatre downstairs (showing parts of classic Disney similar to Main St. Cinemas) and Al's Bar downstairs, Club upstairs.

                          Personally, I still like some tribute to Walt during the late '20s downstairs (including showing Oswald) w/ a '20s style club upstairs.

                            Realistically, for all we know they may have a plan already. To be honest, I could care less either way what they decide to do. I'm going to sit back and watch this one unfold.

                              NO NO NO NO! I already throw a fit about how "unfair" it is for those lucky people who get into Club 33!! I greatly dislike them. (No, I'm just extremely jealous because it's like my dream that never comes true)

                              If another Club 33-style club is built I will throw a fit!! Especially if it's right in front of me!! Aaahhh! I'm all for it being a super fancy restaurant or a theatre, but no secret clubs!! If it's a secret club I will laugh. Laugh, laugh, laugh!

                              I had to rant! :P If I'm correct, this is suppose to be like right in front of the park entrance, yeah? It kind of seems like a funny place to have a functioning theater, it would probably create lots of traffic. Maybe that's why they are thinking of making it a restaurant?
