Brunch At Club 33

club_33_mosiac

I have dreamed of dining at Club 33 for years, but had never had the opportunity.  Club 33 is the private club inside Disneyland that you can only get into if you are a member or a member makes a reservation for you.  I was planning to head to the 24 hour event for the Disneyland 60th Anniversary kickoff and my awesome blogging friend Beth, who writes “My Adventures In Disneyland“, invited me and our other best blogging friends to lunch at Club 33 for her birthday celebration.  It was amazing!!!club_33_visit

Club 33 recently underwent an extensive renovation.  The entrance is no longer next to Blue Bayou.  The Court of Angels is now behind closed doors and that is the entry way for the club.

We had a party of 8 and sat right in front of the large window.  It was so fun to sit there and watch the canoes row by on the Rivers of America.

club33_plateFor the 24 Hour Diamond Anniversary Kickoff, Club 33 was offering a special brunch menu that day. It consisted of 4 courses.

club33_lift_loungeRandom side note, I WANT one of the sinks from the bathroom.  They are so beautiful.  Is that weird?

There are 4 paintings in the hall that leads to the lounge and they slowly change.  For example, you can watch a woman walk though the windows of the Haunted Mansion.

club33_vultureI loved my visit.  I was like a giddy little kid on Christmas.  Dreams come true.  Hopefully I will get to return again one day.
