    Re: Hollywood's Magic Castle one-ups Disneyland

    Everytime I'm there I ask Irma to play the Main Street Electrical Parade on piano. It makes my night.

    to pinbrian -- > I have yet to go, I cant seem to talk my wife into going, she doesnt like magic, is it a really nice place? She seems to think its going to be like a Vegas magic show, nude girls, things like that, or is it much classier of a place?

    MUCH classier.

    Dress code: (from their site)

    The Magic Castle has a strict dress code for evening guests:
    Men
    • Men must be in coat and tie (standard or bow tie)
    • Exceptions to the "tie rule" are: turtlenecks, bolo ties, ascots, jeweled collars, ruffled collars and banded collars.
    • Military Dress, ethnic and/or religious attire will also be allowed.
    • No zippered jackets, outdoor jackets, polo shirts, t-shirts, denim (or colored denim), shorts, sandals, flip flops, sneakers or sneaker-like shoes are allowed.
    • Leather jackets (with buttons) and leather pants are allowed.
    • No casual attire will be allowed. Think business attire!

    Women

    • Women must be in a dress, cocktail dress, elegant skirt & blouse combination, pant suit with a matching jacket (think business suit), or evening pant suit ensemble.
    • Military Dress, ethnic and/or religious attire will also be allowed.
    • No outdoor or zippered jackets, polo shirts, denim (or colored denim), Capri pants, shorts, skorts, flip flops, sneakers or sneaker-like shoes are allowed.
    • No casual or inappropriate attire will be allowed. Think elegant attire!


    No autographs or pictures allowed. There are several different places to watch acts, as well as randoms doing tricks.

    The food is fantastic (and expensive), the service is excellent. It is way beyond anything like a Vegas magic show. (My favorite to watch is the close-up gallery)

    If you go, be sure to say hello to Irma!

    I have to say that I was disappointed in the MC when we went there.

    I expected something totally different from what I had heard about it.

    Someone here compared it to Club33. Not even close.

    I'd say it's similar to Club 33 in how exclusive it is, but I would always tell people it's like Vegas... except you're watching magic instead of gambling.

    I had drinks at Yamashiro above the Magic Castle this past weekend, but I never knew exactly what the place was like until this thread.

    I love the Magic Castle. If you get a chance to go . . . GO!

    Explore. There are lots of show rooms of different sizes. In the basement, you can often find younger magicians practicing their craft. Lots of neat little lounges as well. And I really enjoyed my dinner and the service.

    They also have a small display there devoted to The Haunted Mansion. A gate plaque and an early mock-up of the Ballroom scene as a working diarama, complete with pepper's ghost effect.
