  • [Other] Should WDW have its own 'Club 33'?

    I say yes. They have on in DL and in Tokyo Disneyland so I say why not? It would be neat if Club 33 was expanded into a Worldwide club and that clubs existed in each of the Magic Kingdoms.

    Your thoughts?

    Yes, but one that's free to the public. Or at least anyone over the age of 21.

      In a way, they do, the corporate lounges at the Epcot pavilions are pretty exclusive, and some of them are very fancy. I've had the chance to go into the Spaceship Earth and Seas lounges and I wouldn't mind going back.

        I agree with DoppelV that the sponsor lounges already serve a similar function. Even today, much of Club 33's members are corporations that offer it as a perk for their employees. The old Townhouses at Lake Buena Vista had a similar function, being leased by companies and offered to employees. All of the convention space, and associated ticket and hotel deals, are also available to companies and used throughout the year. The only thing really lacking at Walt Disney World is the availability of personal membership.

        Then it would not really be a club. Besides, Walt Disney World has fine dining options.

          I would say yes. Nothing like another club I can't afford to get into. Of course I'll just need to connect with the right person to get "in".

            Don't worry the sit-down dining prices at WDW will get to that level soon enough.

            But is Victoria and Alberts not close enough? It might not be through a mysterious doorway in Liberty Square but it's still pretty nice and, for most people, not just a cheap meal...

            If you want an "exclusive" club.. meh it's not as exclusive but getting into the top viewing portion of Bay Lake Tower takes both a DVC membership and staying at that resort.

              Victoria & Albert's also came immediately to my mind as well.

                I've eaten at C33 twice and V&A once. And I have to say, C33 doesn't come close to matching the quality of V&A food

                  I know that this was a discussion at WDW a few years ago (2006 & 2007) from a few friends who were involved with this.

                  What was looked at were the following options:
                  1. Create new venue for an exclusive club.
                  2. Re-purpose an existing VIP lounge as the home of this club.
                  3. Hold this club at exclusive monthly gatherings at special VIP areas (eating in the ballroom at Haunted Mansion, Eating in the Middle of Dinosaur, Eating in Oz at the Great Movie Ride etc etc etc)

                  Last I heard before the person in charge left the company, was that Global pricing, couldn't come up with a membership price, and monthly price that could make these relatively small gatherings profitable.

                    Kind of like the AdvClub

                    Speaking of free or nearly free, the Passholders Lounge they had at Epcot circa 2002 (?) kind of felt like a private club. Kinda wish they'd bring that back... it was an enjoyable little perk that cost them very little to operate.

                    Not as extravagant as Club 33 (had the pleasure of dining there twice), but not as difficult to get into either....

                      But what about hard-core Disney fans who are kids that would want to eat there?

                        I'd much rather see them build a "Walt's" above Main Street with great food that anyone would be allowed to enter than to build another exclusive "Club 33" type of restaurant.

                        Walt's at Disneyland Paris is one of my favorite theme park restaurants anywhere and a wonderful tribute to the man who started it all.

                          Isn't WDW getting it's own Four Season's Resort? Ever better than a Club 33.

                          Although now maybe there'll be people to populate an East Coast Club 33.

                            They save up their pennies and count down the days until they're old enough. Just like waiting to drive a car or have a drink (legally).

                            I agree that an exclusive club, if one were ever to open, should be limited to adults to preserve the ambiance and allure.

                              There should be only one.
