    Inside Disney's exclusive Club33, where the recession doesn't seem to matter[merged]

    Someone may have already posted this, but the story is on the AOL Welcome screen.

    Inside Disney's exclusive Club 33, where the recession doesn't seem to matter


    "Of course, not all Disney fans hold the club in such high esteem. A few more level-headed mouseketeers on MiceChat - A Different Look At Disney openly criticize those who crave the hard-to-come-by Club 33 membership. As the poster who calls himself Sediment wrote: "Bragging rights? OK. You can't brag instead about feeding 1,000 people on Thanksgiving Day every year for the rest of your life?"

    If you think thats bad, you should read about how long you can expect to be on the waiting list. It could be 5 or 10 years before you're accepted.

    Wow! SO much of that article was inaccurate. And the video is REALLY old. The Club has seen a MAJOR redecoration since that video was shot.

    It's a private club with a capped number of members. If you balk at such a long wait, dont put your name on the list. Simple as that. One less person for everyone else to wait behind.

    You should see some of the private country clubs out there...

    Sound advice. If you don't like waiting lists don't get on the list. Check, again good advice.

    There was an interesting discussion going on and that was an odd quote to choose.

    Talking Inside Disney's exclusive Club33, where the recession doesn't seem to matter

    WalletPop, an AOL site, wrote a story about Club 33 and the recession, which quotes the community here at MiceChat.

    Read the story and leave them a comment with your thoughts on cost/quality/expense of Club 33.

    There are at least 35,000 different points of view on this subject

    Because Disney fans can be somewhat fanatical (think Star Trek convention but with Mickey Mouse ears instead of Spock ears), I feel compelled to disclose that for their thousands of dollars, Club 33 members also get daily admission to the park on days they eat at the club and up to six "fast passes" which allow them to return to a ride at a proscribed time and walk to the front of the line without being publicly hanged before an angry mob. Other club "privileges" include valet parking at a Disney hotel.

    Of course, not all Disney fans hold the club in such high esteem. A few more level-headed mouseketeers on www.micechat.com openly criticize those who crave the hard-to-come-by Club 33 membership. As the poster who calls himself Sediment wrote: "Bragging rights? OK. You can't brag instead about feeding 1,000 people on Thanksgiving Day every year for the rest of your life?"

    ehem...
    And right now, in the midst of the country's deepest recession with record unemployment and home foreclosures, the waiting list for membership is so long that names are no longer being accepted. (The rumor is that if you pester them too much about where you stand on the list, they'll add some time to the wait.) Basically, the only way to join this club is to wait for a member to die.

    It's also an odd picture to use since it's not even Disneyland. And the comments below are pretty heated.

    LOL - Who knew that Club 33 could generated such heated passion. For goodness sake, it's just an expensive restaurant inside a theme park.

    A beautiful and sentimental restaurant mind you, but not quite what most people dream it is.

    my guess as to why it's so heated: it's an expensive place, inside a theme park, where people are waiting years to get in, but at the same time, there's stuff like Haiti happening, where people are starving, there's a lack of $$$, etc. But that's just a guess, and I don't agree with that point of view. I agree with you Dusty, that it's just a expensive restaurant. It's basically the same as something like Laury's, Mortons, Benihana's, etc.
