Club 33



















The highlight of our week was going to Club 33. What is Club 33, you ask? You may know the answer if you are a Disneyland fan, or if you have ever lived in the OC. It's an exclusive restaurant in Disneyland you can only get into if you "know somebody." Usually a company buys a membership and can entertain guests and clients th
ere. There's a little door kind of tucked away by the Pirates of the Carribean ride with a door bell that you ring only if you have an appointment. If you stand around long enough you can catch someone going in or out of the restaurant and catch a glimpse of a richly decorated hallway, some stairs and a French elevator. It's one of those things my Disney-obsessed in-law family dreams about going to.
So Ben's brother and sister-in-law were here for a visit and I thought I'd see if anyone we knew around here had an "in." We were lucky enough to get a lunch reservation thanks to Ted and Eliza! (You rock!) We really had an amazing time! It was pretty FAHncy and the food was delish. My favorite was the dessert buffet (check out that rasberry truffle thing with gold leaf!). And the fact that every time we left the table, someone folded our napkins again. And the Evian water refills every ten seconds. No, the bathrooms with throne toilets were the best!
We finally left with full stomachs and full of ourselves as we walked again out of that secret door, and people were actually watching us, trying to catch a glimpse of the mysterious luxury they only wish they could attain. :-)

Um, WOW!
I love that you got a picture of the toilet, which is amazing.
What a thrill!
So that dessert tastes as good as it looks?

That is so awesome! Is this the restaurant you can see when you're on the ride or even more exclusive than that?

You say the words "dessert buffet" and I'm in.

Sounds like a blast (especially knowing Ben's obsession with all things Disney)! I'm glad you got to go!

OK, I think you've talked me into going to Disneyland next month, even if I'm not cool enough to garner an invitation to
"Club 33".
I said something about you in a comment on Jessica's last blog, by the way.

With a place that fancy why no gold toilet!? Let me tell you that you have to pay a lot to get a good bathroom service in the world today. For the love!
