I made a game of watching to see how quickly they could refold my napkin for me, they are quick! LOL

And yes, when you come back you will have a new napkin, I saw this happen a couple of times. LOL We were seated by 2 larger tables and one of the ladies near me said "I'm taking my napkin so I can wipe off the tongs for the crab, they are cold and wet" So, she took her napkin and within seconds she had a new clean one at her table. lol

I'm hoping to have a generous person host my wife and I in December for my wife's 30th. Although we'll most likely end up at Napa.

That would be so fun. I hope you can go too.

We also had a free glass of champagne (for me) and a free glass of sparkling cider (for her), it was pretty neat to be able to drink in DL. lol I surprised her completely, she had no idea we were going, I told her I wanted to take a picture of her with the Club 33 sign so we could "post it on FB and tell people we ate there" LOL and then I told her to ring the bell and she freaked out. LOL We were both wearing nicer shirts (I told her I wanted to dress nicely for her birthday) with capris and tennis shoes. We had no issues being admitted at all, I was a little worried because her capris had slightly distressed areas of her capris but no holes so no skin was showing, if she had worn anything like that I would have asked her to change. But they do take the dress code seriously, when we were ringing the bell someone else came up behind us, she had been turned away because she was wearing flip flops, they made her go buy actual shoes. lol
The food was amazing, the seafood buffet was delicious, the service was perfect, we couldn't have asked for better and for dessert they brought out a Happy Birthday mousse, which we could hardly eat but it was so good. LOL If you don't eat everything get a to go box, leftovers are good too
I do agree with looking around and making sure you do go to the Ladies room, it's very interesting. LOL And most of all, take your time and enjoy yourself.



I will, thank you! We're planning on lunch being a majority of our afternoon if not all of it. I can eat more if I eat slow. I have poured through photos and the seafood looks so good.

What a fantastic birthday gift for your DD! Right now my kids cannot believe I'd go without them. I didn't know we could take a to go box. Thanks for the tip. I must have a macaroon or 5. They're my all time favorite cookie.

We will dress appropriately for sure. Not only would I de if I got turned away, I'd never want to embarrass our host.

I hope that you share a trip report after your visit. Have a great time!

I will for sure share my report. I am going to take a ton of photos.

You did? Awesome! We're going the second week of March.

I'm all over the ladies room. I need to see it in person. The commode looks interesting. I like to be spoiled a little- sounds heavenly.

My DH works for AT&T and in less than 10 years he will hit that anniversary mark that is supposed to get us a trip inside. Not that I'm counting days or anything, cough, cough,- approximately 3,407.

I do that every time too. And 3,407? I am all about countdowns no matter how long they are.

Ya, I was really worries about embarrassing out hosts as well, I must have asked her a million questions about the dress code. LOL DD had no idea at all, I was so excited to be able to surprise her because Club 33 was on her bucket list and I knew it. She is a HUGE Disney fan, she's already planning on going to DLRP for her honeymoon and has started to plan it. When I told her to ring the bell she didn't believe me and said "Mom, they might kick us out!" I said "No, really, ring the bell" she started at me for a minute and said "Oh.My.GEEEEEEEEEEE" and rang it, when they asked for a name she gave them mine and the lady said "welcome to Club 33", DD cried. LOL It was pretty much amazing. I will never be able to repay my benefactor and I can only hope that she knows how much I appreciate what she did for DD and myself that day.

Awesome for you! My brother got to go a couple years ago (friend of a friend of his wife or something?) and I would love to someday. It's one of those Disney things that only people "in the know" value.

That's exactly how I feel. I can't convey my thanks enough. I love that your DD was so happy she cried. I'm sure I'll bawl like a baby after we are let in. My good friend's hubby just got a job at Disneyland Paris and they relocated about 3 months ago. His job is scheduled for 5 years so I'm hoping we make it over during their stay. Your DD sounds very sweet.
