    My Amazing Club 33 Proposal

    I'd like to share about my once in a lifetime trip to Club 33 and highlight the generosity that still exists amongst Disney fans. Not too long ago I decided I wanted to propose to my girlfriend. I tried to think of most amazing way to do it and searched and searched the internet to try and find a way into the famed Club 33. Then a slight miracle happened and a member contacted me and offered to make me a reservation.

    But as the big day grew closer the amazing Disney touches just kept adding on. I made sure my girlfriend was dressed for the occasion by saying we had Blue Bayou reservations and that they had changed their dress code. But before lunch, we had a special scavenger hunt. Her friends would text her with various questions like "I heard Walt and Lillian had a special 30th anniversary celebration inside the park. Can you find it and take a picture in front of it?" And with that we went to various locations around the park. Finally we showed up in front of Club 33 and was about to take our picture when I said.. "I wonder what would happen if we rang the bell?" We did, and quickly we were welcomed in.

    The meal was amazing. Food was splendid, and I made sure to order a 'Sidecar' so I can boast about having an adult drink at Disneyland. Really great food, everything was perfect.

    At this point, my girlfriend had thought something was up, but now she was relaxed because what surprise could be bigger than going to Club 33? As the meal was done, I asked for dessert. And out came a custom made cake from Disneyland's central bakery made possible by my mysterious benefactor. It was Cinderella themed, and on it a banner that said "Will You Marry Me?" She began to cry, I got done on one knee and she said yes.

    But the amazingness didn't just end at Club 33, because the next night we got to meet the Club 33 member in person when he invited us for evening drinks after the Holiday fireworks at the 1901 Club. Such a wonderful place and he was so nice and charming. At that point he said he was going to show us parts of Disneyland we had never seen.

    The next day, we got into Disneyland early and had a blast. He took us to the Captain's Wheelhouse on the Mark Twain, the Lilly Belle train car and saw the pet cemetery on the side of the Haunted Mansion. He got us fast passes to Radiator Spring Racers and even went on the Tower of Terror together. And at some point while we were enjoying dinner, he let us know we should hurry back to 1901 to meet John Lasseter. Can you get better than that?

    Well you can. Because later than night, we got to sit watching Fantasmic in a reserved seating area. It was a perfect end to an incredible day.

    If that special member, who in humility asked to not be identified, is reading this, I can never say thank you enough. Me and my soon to be wife will always be grateful for everything I reported and all the other things I didn't out of respect for what you did. Thank you so much.

    We were sent over there with the message that only we would defend Disney quality.. We learnt quickly that the Japanese culture speaks to a level of quality that is hard to comprehend. They were all unbelievably skilled and willing to do the right thing.

    I'm thinking of doing something similar, but asking my wife for a divorce.

    Are you going to forefill your side of the bargain?
