My family and I (Daughter 8', Wife, Father and, the biggest kid, my Mom) are planning on being at Disneyland from the fifth of April to the twelfth of April. This is hard for me to word in such A way as to bring the importance and significance of having lunch and or dinner at 'Club 33' would mean to me and especially to my mother. My family has always been big fans of anything Disney or related to Disney. My mom for instance was A member of the musketeers club, not in the show, that fans could join. I had my first true taste of Disney Magic at age twelve when my parents scrapped enough money together to take us, my parents and three other siblings, to Disneyland. Don't get me wrong, I loved all the Cartoons and Movies but, There's was nothing in my life up to that point that had ever made me feel as happy as that day I walked through the gates out onto Main Street. To make A long story short ("It could be Very long") I guess what I'm asking is if there is anyway that anyone could arrange for my family and myself to be honored with the privilege of dinning at 'Club 33' on one of those days mentioned above? If you could please respond by Email I would appreciate the effort, even if it is to tell me I'm crazy.

If you join the NFFC (< see nffc.org >) and go to their summer NFFC convention at Disneyland, I think one of the limited-seating special events they offer (at an extra charge) is to eat in DL's Club 33.
Check it out!

One of the best experiences I have ever had at Disneyland happened in May 1999. I had an invitation to go to Club 33 thanks to my wife Tara. The club was built for Walt Disney and was finished shortly after his death. It then became an exclusive club which even now only has about 400 members. The cost of a membership is $10,000 and $2,500 annual dues.
The club is located above the streets of New Orleans Square. The dining room has French doors that open onto balconies that overlook Disneyland's Rivers of America. They serve some of the best food I have ever seen. Everything from lobster tail to Mickey shaped pasta, and some of the worlds finest wines. It is the only place inside of Disneyland that serves alcohol.

I was inquiring about club 33 when I saw that the cost was $10,000! What do I get for this price? Free food I hope! Or just status? I can't imagine paying that kind of money just to eat at an exclusive restaurant. Maybe if I was rich. No, not even then. I can think of better things to do with 10,000. I'll eat at the Blue Bayou and save some money!

You get your own exclusive plastic entry card which you'll be able to insert in the card reader at the entrance door to Club 33, no free food but the right to buy as much of the food they serve there as you care to eat and can afford -- same for beverages (including alcoholic beverages), the right to buy as much Club 33 merchandise as you can afford, free entry to Disneyland, and the use of the exclusive bathrooms at Club 33.
Oh, and there's a pretty good chance that the restaurant won't be closed down in a cost-cutting measure like a lot of the other eateries at Disneyland.

I guess I'm just cheap, cause I wont be paying that much to eat. Unless it comes with a side of Gold.

I won't ever be joining Club 33 either. But I did eat there one time with Carol when it was offered as a special event at one of the Official Disneyana Conventions we attended at Disneyland. I'm glad we did it, but I don't have the desire (or funds) to become a member.

My wife just returned from a special event there this week -- a dinner she said was the best she's ever tasted.
And the dessert in fact DID have real edible gold flakes sprinkled around the plate.

And at the special event we went to you could even buy the plate!

Okay, so how can I get in on one of these special events?

Well, the special event I attended was associated with one of the Official Disney Conventions that Disney held at Disneyland years ago. Disney decided not to have an Official Disneyana Convention this year and it is not known if they'll be bringing them back or not.
However, check out the < NFFC > because they have their own unofficial Disneyana conventions and some of them have included breakfasts and/or lunches at Club 33 for an extra fee.
