Here are the pictures I took on Saturday, October 8th, 2005 at Club 33. This was the lunch buffet. For your information, the price of lunch at Club 33 (excluding alcohol drinks) is whatever the current price of gate admission is. The buffet table has all the appetizers you could possibly want. Salads, pasta, shrimp, crab, lobster tails, fried tomatoes with some kind of cheese, and stuff that I have no idea what it was other than it was very good. The Entrťes now come from the kitchen as they were running out of room in the hallway. (They now have over 4,700 active members). So after you go to the buffet, your waiter comes by the table and you place your order for the main course. There is a huge selection, like Steak and Fries, Lamb, Chicken, and three other choices that I canít remember. There were four of us for lunch, Myself and my friend Kasey, our host and his 14 year old son. Kasey ordered the Lamb and the rest of us had steak. Our host and Kasey had a Lady Godiva White Chocolate Martini. His son and I had diet coke. All the food was delicious. The service is excellent. The Martiniís were $7.50 each which I understand is not bad for what you get. Here are the pictures that I took.
This is the Main Downstairs Lobby, and The Glass Elevator that first timers, as a long standing tradition, must take to the second floor. Everyone else has to walk the stairs (or they can ride the elevator if they wish.
This is the Head Waiterís station at the elevator station on the second floor
This is the Original Dinning Room that has the microphones (no longer working) in the overhead lights. Also pictures of old Disneyland and Walt are on the walls, a glass display case is in one corner and two of the original A/A birds (also no longer working) are above the entrance door to this room.
To get to the new Main Dinning Room you first walk down a short hallway that has a nice Grandfather Clock, A glass enclosed Telephone Booth (I didnít get a picture of that), the ďGoodie Display CaseĒ with all the Club 33 merchandise that you can buy and of course the famous restrooms.
Then you go down a longer hallway, over the New Orleans Street below, into the Main Dinning Room which is across from the Original Room which is above Pirates.
The Main Hallway is where the Buffet Station is located, along with the Bar.

Each Place Setting has a "Presentation Plate" at your seating place when you arrive. This is pictures of those plates after they were removed and stacked on a side bar.
This is my plate after loading up with appetizers and a shot of the table setting:
This is the balcony outside the Main Dinning Room from street level:
And here are some views from that balcony.

Kasey bought this Windbreaker jacket as a souvenir. It has the Club 33 logo on the front and also has a hood. I didnít ask how much it was, and this display jacket, like everything in Club 33, has no price tag.

Well, thatís about it. I hope you enjoy the pictures of Club 33 and The Holy Grail of Disneyland Bathrooms. Sorry I didnít get any pictures of the Ladyís Room. Canít go in there and there where no ladies in our party.
Now, before I go, I did learn one thing about Disneyland that I had never heard before and did not know. When the waiter was telling us the history of Club 33, we learned how Disneyland got itís Street Address. Do you know how that happened? Now, if you have heard this story, please donít give it away. I would like those who have never been to Club 33 to try and figure this out just for fun. I think itís kind of neat. For those of you who donít know, the address of Disneyland is 1313 Harbor Blvd.
