Have you ever wished you could join Club 33, but traveled more frequently to Walt Disney World than Disneyland? Well, it appears that now, not only will you have one, but you’ll soon have four different versions of Club 33 at the Walt Disney World Resort.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, versions of Club 33 will be built at Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Epcot, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. As of right now, details about this project are still very sketchy. We do not know where exactly Club 33 will be built inside the four theme parks, and we have no idea how much it will cost to join the club. (I’m gonna expect it’ll be pricey!) However, one thing is for sure – getting to experience Club 33 is on many Disney fans’ bucket lists, and it looks like Disney is attempting to make it a little bit easier for those of us on the East Coast to mark it off our lists. (Or I should say easier for those who have the cash?)

For those who are unaware, Club 33 originated at Disneyland back in 1967. It is a private club that is located in the New Orleans Square section of Disneyland. The idea behind the club was actually a creation of Walt himself. He got the idea courtesy of executive lounges that were prevalent at the 1964/1965 New York World’s Fair. This private club allows VIPs to mix, mingle, and dine. The area has always held of sense of mystique, due to its exclusive nature. Membership to Club 33 in Disneyland is in high demand, resulting in a waiting list that is years long.

Stay tuned to the blog, as this is a developing story. I’ll likely have more information to share soon!

  • Well, they had to do something with all those “personal cabana” tents leftover from last summer. :-/
    Let’s face it, WDW is moving decidedly and hurriedly in the direction of a 2-tier resort: one level for us average schlubs willing to wait in lines and quite another for those who have got the money to upgrade everything to…wait for it…the Nth degree.
    Sigh.

  • Oooooo – count me in! Afterall, I really don’t need *both* kidneys – I can sell one for the membership fees, can’t I?

    April Fool’s Day joke on April 13? Brilliant!

    • I actually checked the date of this article to see if it was dated April 1st. I’m going with the poster who said April Fool’s joke on April 13th. Disney couldn’t get another Club into DCA, so I don’t see how they could get FOUR into WDW. Although, based on the “temporary memberships” phase, maybe they’re “pop-up” Clubs for a limited time to judge interest in building a permanent version.

  • Greed aside this would also be another way to get alcohol into Magic Kingdom.
