OFF THE MAP RECAP:
Did you have food normally served at Club 33 or was it special for this event?
We were served a delicious 4 course meal with wine parings prepared by Club 33's executive chef Marcel St. Pierre. It was not the regular Club dinner service where you choose your entree off of the menu. Special events at the Club usually have a special prix fixe menu.
How many people were in each group?
Each of the 7 groups had 10 guests. Each Group was lead to the special locations by a D23 staff member.
Do you have pictures of the gifts?
Each place setting at Club 33 had a wine glass etched with the Club logo on it filled with Club 33 chocolates. We were each given a Club 33 gift bag when leaving the Club with a rare unreleased photo of Walt in his apartment. The photo was an outake from the 1963 National Geographic photo shoot and was recently discovered by the Archives staff. It had never been seen by the public before last night. The D23 staff had the photo cleaned up, digitized and printed just for this event. It shows Walt looking out of the apartment window towards the Main Street Station. He has a great smile on his face and you can also see the reflection of his smile in the window. It is a wonderful, rare, and appropriate gift!
Were you able to purchase Club 33 merchandise?
Club 33 merchandise was available for purchase after dinner had been served.
