Club 33 is an exclusive club that is located in the New Orleans section of Disneyland. You either need to be a club member, or have a club member sponsor your meal there. Disneyland may have events that include a meal at Club 33, but those are few & far between ... and expensive.

Here's a site with more information: Club 33 Site (http://www.disneylandclub33.com/)

Here are a couple of links. I know there are more out there.
Not easy to get in, but a definite must-do if you can.

I would like to thank both of you for responding. I found the links very helpful and it looks as if I will be looking at club 33 from the outside since I am a nobody and I certainly refuse to spend 2500.00 for membership. you were both very helpful though, thanks.

Great! You can stand outside with the rest of us, then. ;)

I had always wondered about the history of Club 33 and was surprised to discover that it was Walt's idea originally to have somewhere to entertain special guests, how sad that he was never able to see the finished product. I was unclear based on these websites:

Where does the income from Club 33 go? Is it somehow divided to charities etc or just regular park income?

How was it decided that there could only be 400 members and who is in charge of approving these members?

I find it fascinating but a little surprising that there would be such an exclusive place on Disneyland property, something that is not for the enjoyment of all nor is it Disney family only allowed.

Can someone explain?

You never know, I think there are more corporate memberships out there than there used to be. DH makes sure he mentions any Disneyland trips we have planned to his suppliers at work and several times folks have offered to arrange for us to dine there.
Unfortunately, seems like everytime we find a supplier with a membership, affiliations change and we no longer have that contact.
:sad2:
Not giving up hope though!
