    Photo Update 5/23/07 - Walt's Formal Dining Room Is Now A Pantry!!!

    WHAT'S NEW AT THE DISNEY GALLERY??

    There have been a few changes to Walt's formal dining room up in the Disney Gallery lately... It may not be as small as a pantry but it sure feels like it now that they have chopped it in half and moved the beautiful fireplace that was the centerpiece of the room. Now it sits on the outside wall in between the french doors.

    Here are some pictures. What do you think??









    They did a beautiful job but I can't help but be a little sad that the change.

    They moved the "Beyond the Berm" exhibit into the dining room and the new "Disneyland: Through the Eyes of An Imagineer" is now in the main entry room.
    Here are a few shots of some of the artwork:















    Ok... enjoy and please let me know what you think of this major change to Walt's apartment!

    (Thanks to MasterGracey for some of the shots)

    I don't think I understand what you're talking about either. Is it the room past where the cash register is??

    Sorry, I'm not familiar with the names of each of the rooms...

    I heard through the grapevine that they expanded the Club 33 kitchen. Does anyone know if that is true??

    The main dining room is on the right just past the room where the cash register and all the retail merch is . The french doors open up to the balcony that look out over NOS.

    Can we have before and after pics to compare to?
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Thanks - I thought that was the one you were referring to.

    I really like that big Snow White portrait. It reminds me of the old sign on the Snow White ride before the '83 redo.

    I'll be up there in a couple of weeks for lunch at Club 33 - that'll give me a chance to check it out!

    I was wondering why it was closed off a couple of weeks ago. I guess thats when they were doing the work on it.

    The new Dining Room is half the size that it was before. The room is really quite small now; while the color scheme and windows make the room seem open and airy, the space is small and kind of cramped if its busy.

    Another MiceChatter posted a while back that half of the room was given to Club 33 for kitchen supply storage. What a shame - valuable wallspace in a beautiful, unique galleryspace given to a kitchen for storage.

    I mean, its not absolutely horrible - they themed the room quite nicely, and overall, its very tastefully done - but I'd like to see how the Disney Gallery CMs alter their spiel when they give guests a tour of Walt's Royal Suite. Will they tell the guests that the formal dining room was cut in half for Club 33 storage? Or will they just hope that guests believe that such a tiny room was intended to be a formal dining room?

    Hopefully one day this change can be reversed, and the Gallery can get all of its wallspace back in Walt's formal dining room.

    Some of that artwork is gorgeous. Wow.

    Too bad about the tiny dining room, though.

    Everything old is new again.

    From Club 33's 1967 prospectus...see this page from my web site:

    http://members.aol.com/opus1guy/page7.html

    While Club 33 never did expand and take over the 21 Royal Street Apartment (what is known as "The Disney Gallery" today)...it looks like they did indeed finally take a part of 21 Royal's dining room, which was always "served" by Club 33's kitchen via a door leading directly into it (though that door is gone now with this expansion).

    "Space has been provided for expansion of Club 33 at some future date..."

    Looks like that future date finally came around.
