  • Frogberto's PHOTOS from Dinner at Club 33

    Last night I went back into the park for a previously scheduled reservation at Club 33. Even though the busy summer season is just beginning, it was actually easier to get a reservation for tonight, as the park closed early for a Grad Night event.

    First thing I noticed were the new 'faux hedge" goofy, Disneyland, and mickey, only two out of three I photographed--- didn't they just put up the year of a million dreams posters?:






    Then it was into the park, and upstairs to Club 33. The front desk attendant presented me with a Club 33 "40th Anniversary" keychain, which apparently they are giving out all year (I received another one during a previous visit):




    Love the custom glass wall sconces:


    No smoking, and also no cellphones, at Club 33:




    The Club 33 Harpsichord:


    Sure, frog, you say, enough with the fancy trappings, how was the food and drink?

    The red wine served was an Estancia Pinot Noir, and it was delicious. This shot is from the bar, where I hung out more than I should have, but the bartenders, as always, are super nice and friendly:


    I also had a salad that was just perfection -- probably the best salad I've ever had at any Disneyland restaurant.

    My entree was the roasted chicken on risotto, which was cooked perfectly - it was heavenly. Notice the Club 33 plates - they have the best custom china at Club 33. Just beautiful:


    For dessert, the Creme Brulee:


    A view from the upstairs balcony:

    Some details from the artwork inside:












    As close to a self portrait as I got:


    The french elevator in Club 33:


    Some details from the front desk:




    Sure, yeah, nice, you say, but what's for sale - what can I buy in the club? Well, I knew you'd ask that, so here's a look at limited offerings in the the merchandise case:





    And shots of the park from the balcony:




    I held a fastpass for Space Mountain from my earlier visit, but it was down from about 8:30 on. The fireworks, bumped up to 8:45 p.m., were also cancelled due to "winds at higher elevations".

    All in all, a great time. Definitely not Blue Bayou food!

    Nice pictures. I hope one day I can take in some drunken debauchery with my DMCA family there.



    Glad you had a good time!

      Exceptional work as always.

      Thank you
      That was wonderful! Bravo! I loved that! Ah, that was great! Well, it was pretty good. Well, it wasn't bad. Uh, there were parts of it that weren't very good though. It could have been a lot better. I didn't really like it. It was pretty terrible. It was bad. It was awful! It was terrible! Take 'em away! Boo! Boo!

          Oooooh, I sooo want to dine at Club 33! Sometimes I just loiter around the little Club 33 logo in NOS and whimper softly.

          Fantastic pics, Froggy! I love the Walt pic. Isn't it above "Walt's Table," where he used to like to sit? I'd love to have a drink at the beautiful bar.

          I'm envious. I'm jealous. I'm delighted you took such fab pics and shared.

          Thanks, Froggy!

            Thank you. They actually have two reproductions of that semi-famous painting of Walt enjoying breakfast at the Riverbelle Terrace, as the Mark Twain steams past on the Rivers of America. One is in the center hallway, between the two dining rooms (across from the restrooms), and another one is on the far hallway of the Trophy Room (or what they used to call the Trophy Room), inside the actual dining area.

                  Ohh! You'll match the hedges. How pretty.

                              Hey, don't be jealous - I've never been to the Tahitian Terrace (and never will), but apparently you even slept there!
