    Circarama's Club 33 Trip Report

    Saturday, November 18th, Tigerlily (Darlene) and I (Charlie) enjoyed an afternoon of fun and frivolity at Club 33 along with some other fortunate MiceChatters.

    We met outside of Club 33 at 2:15 PM and entered the lobby of Club 33 after saying the secret code into the 2-way intercom outside the door.
    We were escorted upstairs where we were seated in the "Trophy Room"
    Me and Tigerlily outside of the elevator to the dining floor


    One old buzzard meets another...
    The infamous buzzard that Walt Disney was going use to entertain his guests (via audio-animatronics) by listening in to their conversations with microphones hidden in the light fixtures.


    One of the hidden microphones

    After all of the guests in our party were seated, we were given instructions by our server where the seafood/salad buffet was and that we would be served our entrees after finishing our "cold plates". We placed our drink orders and went to the buffet.

    Our table as it appeared when we arrived


    The salad bar had Ceasar salad, pasta salad, spring mix salad, pate', roasted vegetables (zucchini squash, onions, mushrooms, eggplant, bell peppers, etc.) and several other delicacy's. The seafood portion had shrimp, lobster tails, fish, and crab legs. mmmmmmmm, yummy!

    After we finished our cold plates, the table was cleared and our entrees arrived shortly thereafter.

    I had the contessa shrimp scampi, baby arugula, heirloom tomato linguine AND caviar.(You can't see it in the picture, but it was there... and it was good!)


    Darlene had the pan seared petit chateaubriand with vintage port reduction


    Standing at the bar


    My very first (but not my last) Bombay Sapphire Gin Martini, with a twist, up(not on the rocks) courtesy of Tom Cheney and his lovely lady Victoria, whom Darlene and I hope to spend some more time with in the future. And yes, I did get this just for the swizzle-stick!!
    (Does this make me an honorary member of the DMCA?! Heck, I was drinking at 2:30 PM, what else do I need?)


    Tigerlily at the dessert buffet


    My dessert... gluttony at it's finest!


    After finishing our wonderful meal, we headed out to the balcony that overlooks New Orleans Square for a different perspective of Disneyland and some good conversation
    MiceChatters (dsnylndmom, LuvsLilo, Where's Barbie, PixieChick, Grumpy4,TomCheney, MasterGracey, Peoplemover1, Circarama) on the balcony overlooking New Orleans Square

    The giftware cabinet


    I scored a couple of collectibles


    and then we decided that it was time to get one more pic on the stairs before stepping out of our cozy Club 33 retreat.


    Thanks to our host for helping me with my quest to do every cool Disney experience possible.
    I owe you some serious payback!

    See you in 2 weeks at the Napa Rose for Candlelight.

    Thanks for such a GREAT trip report! Btw...how much did that 33 watch cost? I'm due for a new watch and I've been debating which watch to get. I'll be going to 33 soon, so I'm considering that nice looking watch.

    I like the photo of the hidden microphone. Looks like they need to dust!

    Jealous does not come close to how I feel about this. I have been once and enjoyed it so much. Your photos are great and really give you a idea of how it feels. I am going to call my friend and ask him again "why did you give up your membership?"
    Thanks for a great look at the fun!

    Is it just me or does the entree look like an appetizer?

    Great report and fabulous photos! (Especially the ones I took with your camera. )

    It was, indeed, a magical day. Sharing it with you, Tigerlily, and the rest of the MiceChatters made it even more so.

    (In all fairness, using my camera, Circarama took the best photo of Victoria and I.)

    ..Yeesh. Here's hoping that's the first and last photo of me ever posted here.

    Excellent update though, Circarama! It was great finally meeting you (and everybody else) yesterday!
