    An easy assumption, but wrong. From the previous threads on this topic, it's clear that one of the main complaints of what Disney has done to Club 33 members is the insulting, underhanded way in how Disney did it.

    Re: The 1901 Lounge: The emptiest place in the park!

    I went to Club 33 and 1901 for the 1st time in Oct, and my experience was completely different. Food was excellent (MUCH better than anything I have had at a Ruth's Chris), service was excellent and the staff was in a good mood.

    1901 was empty (there were only 5 of us at one point) but the bartender was hanging out with out group, and it was relaxing. Just like club 33, the service was excellent, and the staff were incredibly nice.

    Sorry, I did not mean to trivialize the complaints for Club 33 members to the price hike of a Turkey Leg, but rather point out the systemic problem of Management putting profits before values and customer service which leads to many of the problems and complaints across all levels at the park.

    I guess I'm not rich enough because I've never even heard of this 1901 club...

    Gotcha -- and completely agree. My apologies, I totally misread your post!

    Being rich is not a prerequisite to hear of the 1901 lounge. I assume many members of this forum that aren't rich have heard about it.

    What the Golds joined was the original C33, not C33 plus 1901. Therefore as 1901 was specifically created as a Platinum perk (one of many for which they pay substantially more), there's no reason for Golds to feel slighted. You want those perks too, upgrade. Don't care about them, stay Gold.

    Generally I like the 2012 changes. 50@ per year parkhopper comps is a pretty good value for the C33 dues paid, and the really nice thing is that the compee doesn't have to dine at C33 anymore [which, while nice, is sufficiently expensive to cancel out the comped parkhopper]. Dropping that dining requirement also makes it much easier for members to make dining reservations when they just have that in mind.

    Micechat rumor has it that the C33 NOS facility is going to expand this year, though C33 hasn't announced that yet. It would be nice if such an expansion included a 1901-type casual lounge for drop-bys who would like a quiet break from the outside. Right now members can access the Club only for dining reservations.

    Linking your two comments together, there will be an even more exclusive (expensive) Diamond membership required to access the new lounge. (I hope my attempt at humor does not become reality)

    A lounge would also provide a waiting area for the C33 restaurant.

    1901 is amazing. There is a camaraderie, and it's a great place for members to meet each other. When members are on a tour and pop in with 10 people, it can get quite busy. I love having a nice lounge where members can get away and relax right in the heart of DCA. And all the members I know really enjoy 1901.

    Club 33 sort of has announced it as the expansion to the area above the French Market is an open secret, where the Club 33 wine cellar is housed, in addition to other stuff. It will be primarily a dinning room as the kitchen is going to be expanded during this five month construction project, some of the stuff might already have been worked on. This is the "big secret news" they alluded to in a mailer. Somebody hinted it will be themed to a jazz club.

    I'm with you. I love meeting other members. I love ordering the usual while the bartender comments on missing us on our last visit. John Lassiter popped in the other night and united everyone at the bar with wonderful stories about a budding PIXAR. It is indeed a break from the masses, I recharge my phone as well as my spirit. This boutique bar is truly special. I cherish my little black card.

    I get Disney is a business and am happy to support their magnificent efforts!

    I'm not.
    If I were I'd be on a different Disney site.

    I have been to 1901 once invited by a member. I loved it. I wish I had the money to join. I hope one day I get invited again to go. Might not be that busy however very peaceful.

    It's actually "Cars Land", not "Carsland".
