    Club 33...How does one get in?

    I was wondering about Club 33. How does one get in or get a membership? Easy? Difficult? Expensive? Worth it? Don't Bother?

    Feed me people!

    Thanks!

    Not sure of the exact cost, but membership is quite expensive, paid annually, and has a long waiting list. Other than that, it comes down to knowing a member somehow or having some sort of in to the club...for myself, I have been in via being a member of the Carolwood Pacific Society, a railroad club for Walt Disney's original backyard set up, which has his original barn in Griffith Park, LA. The group had a in due to one member of 33 being a member, and setting up a breakfast as a fundraiser to buy items from the estate of Ward Kimball.

    You put your name on a long long list. You wait for an exisiting member to die or fail to pay their annual dues. You part with zillions of dollars and you feel smug that you are somehow better than the average park guest. It's bought elitism. Sour grapes - you bet!

    My friend has eaten there and I am SO jealous!

    Or you get a job there like I did, and go anytime you like! We used to randomly stop in for dessert and to watch Fantasmic from the balcony. It was also a cool place to take a date who was easily impressed by going there.

    Re: Club 33...How does one get in?

    Unless you're rich, the membership route is not going to happen. Last I heard , the annual cost was $4500. Then, every meal is minimum $50 per person.

    I got to eat there because I know people. Chances are, if you're near the OC area, you probably know somebody who knows somebody. That's probably you're best shot. Ask around if you have any wealthy friends or relatives to see if they can get you reservations.

    Eating there, $50 person, is definitely worth it at least once in a lifetime. A membership? As much as I would love it, I would never do that unless I had ridiculous amounts of cash... So, never.

    As of a month ago $66 just for the entree. My wife and I were about $90 each for 2 entrees, 2 (non-alcoholic) beverages, and 1 cup of coffee.

    I had connections when I was a kid. Not anymore...

    Remember this -- if and when you do go. Dining at Club 33 is the focal point. It is a fine dining establishment that happens to be in Disneyland.

    When I would come home from school my mom would tell me, "We're going to Club 33.". It was never, "We're going to Disneyland." Of course on trips where Club 33 wasn't involved it was always Disneyland.

    Wow, it's been a couple years since I was there. I'd still say it's worth it one time though.

    Might be a little more now since they raised the price of admission into the park. The general guideline is that the minimum charge per guest is equal to a single day admission into the park, but as Matt stated above it's easy to spend above the minimum

    Cool Re: Club 33...How does one get in?

    I got to go because a close friend worked at law firm that has a membership. Other friends of mine have gone on vendor's memberships. This may be the best route. If you wrok in a vendor heavy industry in So. Cal., ask every vendor you see.
    Of course if you are loaded, just contact guest relations and get on the waiting list to join.
