What fabulous pictures of Club 33. I love the one of you sitting at your table. It's a great shot.

The food pictures have me salivating here. Especially the chateaubriand and the creme brulee.

So happy that you got this opportunity to get in.

Hi Bret, after seeing a link to your report in the Christmas super-thread I'd thought I'd have a look as I've always loved the photos you've posted on it. I had to laugh when I read about your hunt for the calendar on your first day as I think I was there at the same time! That was my second day and I know it was around 2.30 or so when I went to Elias & Co also searching for calendars, and when I was buying mine another CM asked the guy serving me if they had them- maybe it was your CM, what a coincidence if it was! In fact, there is one of your photos that I'm sure I can see my arm in (or maybe I've just convinced myself it's mine as it would be funny if it was).
Aside from all that, I'm loving your report and photos as not only am I enjoying reading about your trip but also reliving mine (I was there Nov 21-24)

How far in advance was your reservation made for you? I knew I was going to be going to Club 33 early last year, but I didn't say anything about it publicly until the reservation was made and plans were set, which was in October. Did you know way in advance that you were going, and just kept it quiet too? I am just wondering if we were all keeping Club 33 a secret at the same time!

You took some really great, close-up food pictures, and you captured a lot of desserts that I don't think were there when I was there! By the time I got to the dessert buffet there were too many people crowded around it and it was tough to get a really good look at everything. I had my heart set on the chocolate cake, which I had heard was good, but what I think was chocolate cake looked a little picked over, so I went for the angel food cake instead.

Was there any kind of angel food cake with white frosting at your dessert buffet? It was quite delicious, though hard to slice.

The hot chocolate had a great flavor, with a very slight cinnamon note...but it was not hot. It was lukewarm.

I, too, got the Chateaubriand and it was delicious! How good were those potatoes, right? Yummy!

I am sorry that the restaurant was not yet decorated for the holidays, even though I know it was an amazing experience for you -- one that you will never forget!

I have to admit -- I thought of you when I entered Club 33 because there were Christmas trees everywhere! Not only was there a tree right inside the front door, but trees along hallways, several mini-trees in the Trophy Room, etc. I was surprised at how many trees there were, and I was thinking, "This would be great for Tree Quest." I did not get a lot of tree photos because it was not convenient. I spent more time just soaking in the atmosphere and listening to our server (Louis) give us info than I actually did taking photos, so I was really looking forward to your photos to see if there were decorations up when you dined there!

Also, you sat in the main dining room -- which is not where I was seated -- so I never got a look at the main dining room, and am happy to see your pictures of it! Looking forward to the next installment!
I had a hunch that you would have figured it before I got to my latest post.

My friend was able to make the reservations inside one month during our day. We were glad that we got to go in Club 33 that Saturday. That was nice to keep your Club 33 experience a secret until the reservations was made. I didnít want to say anything about our meal at Club 33 until I got to the update part of the trip report.

I tried to get a lot of pictures of the food porn and were able to get some nice one. I didnít took a lot of pictures that day since we were enjoying the atmosphere of eating that day. I wished that I would take more, but I was satisfy for the number of pictures that I took. Luckily it wasnít that busy for me and my DA since most of the diners have left that day while there were a few people at the dessert buffet. Since I donít eat chocolate, it was a shame of not trying all those different desserts.

I donít believe there was angel food cake with white frosting at the dessert buffet when we looked at all the different desserts.

I was told that the Valrhona hot chocolate was one of the desserts to try but we didnít get to try it.

The Chateaubriand was so good and the winter truffle potato puree was so amazing.

We werenít too bummed that the restaurant was not decorated with Christmas decorations since it was during November. It was a great time for the two of us to be there that day and have a great meal.

At first when we entered Club 33 that day, I knew that Club 33 has Christmas decorations during the holiday season and it would have been nice to see any. I knew that you would be able to see the decorations during your trip last month and glad that you were able to get some pictures of the decorations.

It was nice to eat in the main dining room. At first, it would have been nice to eat in the Trophy room but we were glad to be able to eat in the restaurant. I was glad to read from Laurie and PHXscuba trip report that you were all dining in the Trophy room.

Thank you PiO. I didnít take a lot of pictures of me during the November TR with the new camera and I had to get at least one picture of me and my DA in Club 33 that day. I should have asked Jeff if he could get us a picture but we were having a great time.

The food was amazing.

It was one of the best experiences that we have ever done at the DLR for the two of us.

Thank you TK. I donít get too many pictures of me when I am at the DLR since I am taking all of the pictures. It was nice to get one that day.

Thank you Angela. It was great to have a meal at Club 33 during Thanksgiving break. It was a little busy that weekend before the break.

Hi Luisa and glad that you are enjoying the pictures from the November trip report. I was asked by my friend to look for the 2014 Attraction Poster Calendar during the trip. I wanted one as well and it was a good thing that we were there when the posters were at the stores. During my trip in December, I looked around all the big stores at the DLR and I wasnít able to find them. Luckily, I was able to get three that day. I did see your name in the November Check-In Thread before the November trip that you were going to be there during the same time. It did took a while for me to find the calendars in the Los Feliz Five & Dime store at DCA. I looked all over the store to find the calendars until the CM told me where they were.

Thank you for following my trip report and glad you are enjoying it.


The next post will be up shortly.

Day 2 Ė November 23rd, 2013 Ė Part 14

Day 2 Ė November 23rd, 2013 Ė Part 14

On the last update, my DA and I had a great opportunity to eat at Club 33 during the November trip. This was our first time being in Club 33 and it was a real treat to have lunch that day. It was an interesting start of the day when we entered Club 33. We were so in awe of being in Club 33 for the first time. We had a very nice lunch and it was by far one of the best meals that I have ever had at the Disneyland Resort. We were seated in the main dining room which was very nice. Now back to the trip report.

Just when we finished the dessert from the dessert buffet, we stayed in the main dining room for quite some time. We stayed in Club 33 since 5:30pm which was 3 hours. It was worth staying in Club 33 for 3 hours where we got to see and enjoy the experience.

Most of the guests that dine at Club 33 during lunch left while there was another family or two with us. The main dining room is all set up for dinner that night.




Our waiter Jeff gave us our bill and the total was over $160 with tip and it was worth every penny. It is by far the most expensive meal at the DLR and glad that if we spent that much money, it would be at Club 33. I have not ate at the Napa Rose and that will be one restaurant that my DA and I will eat one day.

I went back outside the balcony but it was towards the side facing the Haunted Mansion Holiday. I was on the Pirates of the Caribbean side early on and was able to go to the other side balcony.


It was nice to see the other side of New Orleans Square from the second level.


After I came back in and sat back at the table with my DA, it was 5pm and we were the only guests in the dining room. I can tell that it was about time for us to leave Club 33 and exit.

Then Jeff came to our table and asked us how was our meal and experience. We told him that it was a great experienced to eat at Club 33 and had a great time. He then asked us if we wanted a tour and a background history of Club 33. We said yes, and he took us around and told us about the history from the pictures & furniture in the restaurant.

We started in the main dining room and he told us about each art work. I wasnít able to get all the art work pictures since we were moving really quickly.


There was another family with my DA and I as the only guests in Club 33 that evening where Jeff was giving us a tour.




Jeff took us right by the dessert buffet and bar area or Lounge Alley and he showed us the Pirates of the Caribbean pictures and told us about the history of PotC.


These artwork from the 1967 release ďThe Happiest MillionaireĒ.


We were now in the Lounge Alley and Jeff told us more about the artifacts from the pictures and the furniture. There were a few times where I didnít listen carefully to Jeff about the history of the artifacts since I was concentrating on taking pictures.








Costume design artwork for Mary Poppins


The one that I was so interested of all the artwork was Walt Disney enjoying breakfast at Club 33. I really love this a lot and Jeff told us that the art work is limited edition by Charles Boyer.


Now we are right close to the elevator and Jeff talked about the phone booth right in the Lounge Alley which was used in the film ďThe Happiest MilionaireĒ.




Jeff now took us in the Trophy room which is the other dining room in Club 33. We were lucky to be in the main dining room and were given the opportunity to see the Trophy room. Part of the room was being cleaned up that day when that one big family was eating in the Trophy room. Jeff gave us a history of the room where the California Turkey Vulture which was designed to talk to the guests. There are hidden microphones on the overhead lamps where we could see them. There were a lot of very nice artifacts in the room.






When we were taken out of the Trophy room, we were back at the Lounge Alley and Jeff had to go back to work. We really appreciated Jeff time to take us around Club 33 that night and gave us a tour and history of the club.

Just before we left, he told us that we can purchase Club 33 merchandise in the case. We knew that we wanted to get a little something when we left that night and the hostess right by the elevator would help us.


Most of the CM waiters and waitresses were getting the restaurant ready later that night where we didnít see other people when we were about to leave.

The merchandise in the cabinet and they were all very interesting to look at and I could easily have spent a lot of money on the merchandise.






My DA and I did buy a lot of merchandise that day where I must have spent over $300 in Club 33 stuff while my DA spent about $100. It has been awhile since I have spent that much money on merchandise at the DLR (Iím not counting the D23 Expo in August since it is not at the DLR but at the Anaheim Convention Center).

After my DA and I bought our merchandise at Club 33, we started to leave and head towards the bottom. I really didnít want to leave Club 33 that day but we had to meet up with DGM, DM and DD2 later that night.

We walked down the stairs since the elevator was not working during our time. It would have been nice to ride in the elevator but we are glad to have a meal that day.


Just one last picture of Club 33 before we left that day and it was worth every second when we were in there that day.


We walked on out of the door and there were guests outside take pictures in front of the door. I remember that one of those people try to peek in when we left Club 33.

This was an amazing experience to eat at Club 33 during the trip. The food was very good and Iíll say it again that this was the best food that I have ever eaten at the Disneyland Resort. The CMís were great especially our waiter Jeff who was great helping us during our meal and also to give us a tour around upstairs. This will be something that we will never forget for the rest of our lives. This was by far the highlight of the trip even though I love going to the DLR during the holiday season but it was all about Club 33 for me and my DA.

After that, my DA and I were now back in NOS with all the crowds and are ready to meet up with DGM, DM and DD2 that night.

That is it for this post and I will have more from DL that night and see what we are doing next.

Oh WOW, Bret. You got great pictures inside Club33. How awesome to have that tour with Jeff and I think you're really glad to have gotten all the merchandise. It will be something tangible to look at and remember this meal.

I can only imagine what a fantastic time you and your DA had in here.

Luisa - if that really is your arm in that picture...... I have to wait to see your arm in Bret's shot; even if we live in the same town and could do a 3D meet-up.

Thank you PiO. Jeff was very nice and we had a great time going around that day. I was glad to get the merchandise before we left Club 33 that night. That day will be something that I will never forget for the rest of my life.

My DA had a great time and she said that it was worth the money that we paid for that meal.

Day 2 Ė November 23rd, 2013 Ė Part 15

Day 2  November 23rd, 2013  Part 15

On the last update, we just finished out lunch at Club 33 and our waiter Jeff gave us a tour of the club. It was a great day for the both of us to have a great meal and get a history lesson of Club 33. That was one of the best meals that I have ever eaten at the Disneyland Resort. Now back to the trip report.

My DA and I just have finished out great meal at Club 33 and now it was around 5:30pm when we got out and back at New Orleans Square. We need to meet up with DGM, DM and DD2 that night where they went back to the Grand California Hotel to take a nap and are about to meet back up with us at DL. They told us that they were in DL when we exited Club 33 and will meet up with them at the Hub.

Our plan for that night was to watch Sleeping Beauty Winter Castle Enchanting Lighting show and Believe&In Holiday Magic fireworks in front of Sleeping Beauty Winter Castle. Since we didnt see Believe&In Holiday Magic fireworks on Friday during our first night since the fireworks was cancelled due to high winds, we wanted DGM, DM and DD2 to experience the full effect of Believe fireworks in front of SB Winter Castle.

When we met up with them around the Hub, it was around 6:30pm and there were people staking out spots in front of SB Winter Castle. The curb spot right close to the Hub which I usually get when I watch the fireworks already had some people. I was kind of surprised that there were people waiting 3+ hours for the fireworks that night so we had to get our curb spot one hour early. I was surprised that we had to wait an extra hour to get a spot in front of SB Winter Castle for the fireworks. I originally thought that we only had to wait 2 hours to get a curb side spot but since there were people waiting earlier then I have expected, we had to wait around that time.

Since we came during Thanksgiving break which my DA and I have gone during the first weekend of the Holiday season, there are more crowds during Thanksgiving break then the first weekend of the Holiday season. I talked to DGM & DM if they had no problem with the waiting and they had no problem resting up until it was time for the fireworks and SB Winter Castle Enchantment Lighting show.

We got a spot on the curb side around 6:45pm which was 2 hours and 45 minutes until the 9:30pm Believe&In Holiday Magic fireworks. It has been a long time since I have waited that long for the fireworks. I would say that I would not wait that long for the fireworks and the lighting show. DM & DGM had no problem waiting that long for the fireworks.



Since we had some time until the 7:30pm Enchantment lighting, I left the group and walked around the park to look for the Mickey macadamia nut clusters. I was not lucky to find the clusters around the whole resort and the last place that might have it is at Poohs Corner.

While I was walking over to Critter Country, I went by Frontierland and it has the decorations during the holiday season.


Pioneer Mercantile store


The Shooting Exposition


I went into the Bonanza Outfitters store that has Christmas merchandise while I was in the area.


I went around looking for any Christmas trees and there are a few with ornaments






After looking around the Bonanza Outfitters store, I went straight on over to Critter Country. When I looked at the ground sitting spots for the show of Fantamic!, there were already people waiting for the 9pm show. Most of the ground spots were already filled up and surprised to see that it was all full.

I walked all the way to CC to see if they have the Mickey macadamia nut clusters and just like everywhere else, they didnt have them. It was a shame that the DLR didnt have the macadamia nut clusters. I talked to the CM about it and they were kind of surprised that they dont carry them.

While I was at Poohs Corner, I went around to take pictures of the Christmas trees




A look at the treats.






After looking around Poohs Corner, I started to head on back to my group so we can watch the 7:30pm show of SB Winter Castle Enchantment Lighting.

But on the way, I had to get a few pictures of the Christmas trees in Critter Country.




I had to stop in at the Golden Horseshoe.


There were a few trees in the Golden Horseshoe




I then met up with everyone around 7:15pm with about 15 minutes to go until the 7:30pm show of SB Winter Castle Enchantment Lighting. When I got back, most of the street in front of SB Winter Castle was all filled up. I was surprised to see the streets all filled up in that short of time. So I knew that it was going to be hard to maneuver around the area. So I was planning on staying with them until it was time for Believe&In Holiday Magic fireworks at 9:30pm.

We got to see the 7:30pm and 8:30pm Sleeping Beauty Winter Castle Enchantment Lighting show which is a very nice show before the fireworks. The castle lights up and plays a song and the best part about the show is that it snows around the Hub area before the fireworks. This is one of the best ways to see the snow at DL if you cant see the fireworks.

The day was kind of very busy with a lot of people to watch the fireworks. I would normally wouldnt wait 3 hours for the fireworks since I have seen them in the past but it was for DGM, DM and DD2 to experience the fireworks in front of SB Winter Castle.

It was a long 3+ hour wait time for the fireworks at 9:30pm that night. It did felt long with all the people already trying to find a spot in front of the castle. But we were able to wait that long for the fireworks and it is almost about time.

While we were waiting, my DA and I were talking to a nice family that was right next to us. We talked about the fireworks that night as well as their day at the parks. It is nice once in a while to talk to other people while we are waiting for the shows.








It is almost time for the 9:30pm Believe&In Holiday Magic fireworks show and that will be on another post.

Love seeing all the Christmas trees, Bret. There sure are a lot of them at DLR, aren't there?

Fabulous pics in Club 33. We were totally in awe of the place when we had dinner there so I understand how you wanted to stay as long as possible. Love your pics of the Castle too.

That's so nice that you had a great lunch at Club 33. I'm glad that the food was good and you enjoyed yourself. It's always been wonderful when we have dined there!

There are a lot of Christmas trees around the DLR. Each of the trees around the DLR are unique and different and not the same thing.

My DA and I could have spent another 1 to 2 hours longer to look around the dining rooms, art work, bathrooms, etc. but we had to leave to be with our other party members that night.

Thank you Alison. It was a great lunch and we had an amazing time. It was worth paying the $65 per person for the meal. The food was very nice especially the butternut squash bisque which was the best dish for the two of us. Jeff was very nice and helpful during our meal but the best part was that he took us around Club 33 and gave us a history of the club. I will be looking to read and hear about the new improvements to Club 33. It still is sad that the Court of Angels is now closed and being used as the new entrance to Club 33.


The next post will be up shortly.
