    What day of the week would you suggest to visit?
    Lunch or Dinner?

    And if we are planning on attending in July, how far ahead can we make a reservation? I have heard 3 months, but is there a chance you can do it earlier?

    Thanks,
    MLH

    if you know someone who has a memebership to go to Club 33, you need to make reservations through that person.

    It's not a public restaurant, so even if you call Disneyland Restaurant reservations months in advance, without a Club 33 member to make the reservation for you, it's impossible to make reservations.

    Ohh no I wouldnt be doing it. I have a friend that will be making it. I was just wondering to ask him to book it now or should I just ask when it gets closer to our trip. I just think that that week will be really busy and it would be hard to get a reservation.

    Thanks

    Just to let everyone know, there have been big changes to 33 in the last two years. What used to be an all-you-can-affair was changed a year and a half ago to a more structured experience. The dinners are the same but the brunches have been altered. The last time I was there (3 months ago) the pasta bar that so many of us have loved over the years was still gone and you now choose your entree from a menu. The appetizers that include a couple of hot dishes and the same cold food selections (shrimp, crab legs, salads, and cheeses) are still there, as well as a better dessert bar than has been available in the past. A few of the other members as well as myself have written a letter to the management requesting the return of the pasta bar as that was a very enjoyable experience indeed. I will let you know the next time I have brunch there as to the results of the letter. My wife asked me to make a reservation for March for some of her friends so thats the earliest I'll be there. Maybe someone else has more current information?

    P.S. to MLH, no one can make reservations except a member. I have had many people wonder what number to call to get a reservation and how long in advance to call . That being said there are more members now then ever and it is getting increasingly difficult to get a reservation even for members.

    BTW some of the desserts available in 33 are available in Blue Bayou.

    I came across this thread for the first time today and notice the last reply was in early February. Just in case any of the previous posters are still interested, I'll add my thoughts and experiences about Club 33 and a suggestion for how one might get inside for their own dining experience.

    When I had my own business we would attend charity events in Orange County and several times bid on and won Club 33 live auction donations. They were usually for parties of four or six. I believe twice it was through The Bank of America's membership and one other large corporation. We usually got it for several hundred dollars then when a date had been chosen we would have to call the donor to see about reserving a table. The winning bid also included entrance to the park for each member of the party. Food and beverage were additional.

    I've also been to Club 33 as a guest of Disney which were always served in the trophy room. During event planning I've been taken by DL Sales Staff.

    Every visit was a memorable occasion. As others have written, the whole area is quite small. Everyone seems to prefer the elevator but I always like using the stairs.

    The trophy room is intimate, dark and my favorite room. The long hallway where the buffet is set up for lunch/brunch is furnished with a few tables for dinner. The main dining room is elegant, nicely lighted with lots of windows from which you can see NOS and the River.

    Service has always been excellent, low key and the wine list is very well thought out and extensive. Expensive, but a view of DL that such a small percentage of guests ever get to see or experience and worth considering if you ever have the opportunity.

    I have been to club 33 twice. Once for Dinner. The food was pretty good. We had a party of 4 2 people had prime rib, 1 person had angle hair pasta, and I had pork lion. It was very good, that was about 5 years ago. A couple of years ago, I took my sister for her birthday for a charity breakfast buffet. It was good, but not as good as my dinner. We took pictures of bathroom, on balcony, me sitting at the piano, in the phone booth, in the lift. It was much fun.
    Are we there Yet? :devil:

    For those who havent been to the club in a while, there have been a few changes...

    1) Brunch/Lunch is now part buffet, part plated lunch. Prices have also been increased. The buffet now includes no entrees, but still plenty of Sea Food selections, including Lobster Tails, Stone Crab Claws, etc. There are dissert parfaits and etc., as well. The bar still serves a plethora of mixed drinks. The plated lunches very based on the season and include Veal Oso Bucco, pasta and poultry dishes, all masterfully prepared.

    2) Plated dinners are now offered ala carte AND as a Prix Fixe known as "The Vittner", offered with or wihout wine pairing ($75 base, $35 charge for 5 glasses of wine). The ala carte portion of the menu changes by the season and always offers an Angus Chateubriand, Fish, Chicken, Veal and others.

    IMO, the THREE best things to get at the Club BY FAR are:
    1. Club 33 Fruit Punch: A combination of 6 or 7 fruit flavored liquors mixed without the dilution of a "mixer" such as soda or fruit juice
    2. Soup: The club's chefs almost always prepare a leek or cream/compilation of master quality.
    3. Fruit Fondue: This relatively expensive dissert (when available) can sometimes be prepared upon special request and includes 6 different kinds of fresh fruit and a good quart of melted belgian chocolate in a heirloom tureen. Designed to feed the table, there's nothing like it anywhere else that I have seen.

    There you have it!

    I read what Captain CM wrote and just to add to it, I had lunch at Club 33 last Wednesday and there is NO more pasta! You can order it as a seasonal entree, but it is not at the buffet. The cold shrimp was delicous, but I miss the pasta bar, it was yummy!
