Welcome to MiceChat! Yes there is quite a bit going on in this thread, and it is more or less only easily followed by Club members who have been through all of the "Membership Benefits and Rules" brochures or those that very closely follow this saga from afar. I'll try my best to offer some background.
The Club as you may remember it has completely changed, but maybe these explanations will help you a little.
Is a lounge attached to the Carthay Circle Restaurant in Disney's California Adventure Park. It is a small bar and lounge area set aside for Platinum members (those that pay higher dues and are accorded separate benefits by virtue of either being admitted to the Club in 2012 or upgraded their Gold account) and their escorted guests. It contains Disneyana, artwork, and possesses the same menu as the neighboring public Carthay Circle Lounge. You can find photos here: The 1901 Lounge1901 ,
Club 33 has recently undergone a renovation that involved turning the former office and wine cellar located above the French Market restaurant into "Le Salon Nouveau" - it is a drop-in/waiting lounge located adjacent to the main Club 33 dining room (roughly entered near where the women's restroom used to be in the old club). It is decorated in a style reminiscent of Tiana's Place from "The Princess and the Frog" and contains a bar, in addition to a menu of glorified pub fare. It is accessible to Platinum members (those that pay the higher dues) on demand and is accessible to Gold members (members maintaining older accounts who have not upgraded to the Platinum) before their dinner reservation.the New Saloon are and
The "new salon" may also refer to the former main dining room, which is now referred to as "Le Grand Salon." For the most part, it remains similar as before, with an added window and a new floor and some different decorative treatments.
what is the difference between Club 33 and Club 34???
Club 34 is a tongue-in-cheek lampoon of Club 33 coined by Mice-Chatter "Rachane" because it better reflects the Club's new entrance (further down the street) and arguably because of it's going "upmarket" if you will. The idea is the Club is so unrecognizable that it should possess a new name and address. This point, obviously, is a matter of taste.
