Disneyland 2011 - Dessert @ Club 33

One of the main reasons... Ok, THE main reason we decided to head west to Disneyland a few months ago can be boiled down to a simple question posed by a buddy of mine, "Hey, want to join us at Club 33"?

 

Mere seconds after I belted my overly-enthusiastic, "HELLS YES!" reply I had our flights & hotel booked. It was only then that it occurred to me that asking for the time off from work might be helpful as well. Thankfully, my request was granted and the countdown began to Disneyland & our Club 33 reservation.

 

Dining at Club 33 is a wonderful experience, and something every Disney Parks fan needs to have on their bucket list. It's amazing just how many people walk past the Club's non-nondescript entrance completely unaware of what lies beyond the door. This is made even more evident by the sea of parked strollers we had to wade our way through just to ring the bell.

 

Once inside we rode the french lift to the second floor 'Gallery' which is flush with Disney artwork & memorabilia. I fought the urge to experience Club 33 from behind my camera, opting instead to fire off a handful of snaps before putting away my camera and focusing on enjoyed a wonderful meal with my best girl & a few great friends.

 

Yet another astounding highlight from our Disneyland trip - one I really hope to get to experience again in the future.

    I think an invite like that would get me to book hotel/airfare quickly also! :) Great shot and glad you had a great time.
  • Diana Odom 4y

    Awesome that you got to go!! Nice shot too!
  • Cory Disbrow 4y

    Yeah, I won't be heading there next week. Steakhouse 55 will have to suffice. Awesome capture!!
  • Dan Huntley 4y

    What a cool experience. Great shot!
  • Larry White, Jr. 4y

    I'm starting to think, this club isn't so exclusive. Almost everyone I know other than me has been into this place ;-) LOL. Great shot!
  • Corey Dorsey 4y

    I had that exact same question that was asked to me a couple of weeks earlier... and of course I replied with the same answer. And I'll agree, it was quite an experience.

    Very cool shot. A party I would love to go to for sure!
  • William McIntosh 4y

    Glad you were able to make the trip and to share some great shots with us as a result. This is indeed a shot that not many of us will be able to take as that club is so exclusive. I've been up there twice and can affirm that when the invitation comes, you definitely say "yes" no matter what else you have going on at the moment. Nice shot!
  • Victoria 4y

    Love the dessert bokeh!Glad you had a great time.
  • Kristi, The Mrs. 4y

    Very cool. Nice shot.
  • Katie S 4y
