Club 33

This year a new friend got us reservations at Club 33 and off we went for an amazing experience. While guests enjoy free admission (Park Hopper passes, no less), we were responsible for paying for our meal. Our lunch appointment began with our own "magical moment" as a departing Club 33 guest passed her Club 33 Mickey ears to my oldest daughter. Sweet! My friend had emailed me a copy of the dress code for admittance. It was enforced. A family arriving to dine at the same time we were was turned away due to flip flops and tank tops. But a crisis was averted when they returned about 25 minutes later wearing appropriate sneakers and t-shirts and were seated with no fuss.

It's hard to compare eating at Club 33 to other restaurants. This is an ultra-exclusive venue for members only, built specifically for Walt to entertain guests and VIPs. I wrote about the club last year as a reporter, but this was my first experience as a guest and diner. The prix fix meal included five entrees, with numerous trips to buffet for goodies, including dessert. They even had a kids menu offering chicken strips, Mickey shaped pasta and more.

Total lunch price for five of us? With tip: $400. Yowsa! But I'd do it again in a Mickey Minute.

Hey I just noticed that your post was April 6. Talk about the magical kingdom! Mike and I met April 6, 1988 -- 20 years ago. Still magical too :-)
