Disney World sees millions of visitors a year. Virtually everyone who walks through the gates at Disney buys the same experience. For a select few, there are VIP guides, special access to popular rides, and even the chance to buy some extra FastPasses. For even smaller group of people, there’s now Club 33.
Not sure what Club 33 is? Don’t worry, the internet can help you. If you’re looking for the short version, it’s the most exclusive club of Disney fanatics you can belong to. The original Club 33 is in Disneyland, conceived by Walt Disney and opened 40 years ago. There’s an Instagram account dedicated to images associated with Club 33. I’ll be sharing a handful of them throughout the post.
There have been plenty of rumors that Club 33 would be opening in each of the parks at Disney World in Orlando. I know employees who have interviewed for jobs in the clubs. There’s plenty of evidence that additional Club 33 outposts are coming. And, now we think we know how much it will cost to be a member.
I’ve followed WDW News Today for quite some time, but somehow missed a story they posted a few days ago about Club 33. Thanks to my friend Cliff, who dropped it in my inbox yesterday.
It seems that property owners in Golden Oaks, the very upscale Disney residential community, are receiving invitations with an initiation fee of $25,000. Annual dues appear to be $15,000.
What Does Your Membership Get You?
That’s a really good question. At Disneyland in California, you get access to an incredible restaurant, but you still pay for your meal when you dine there.
Could there be more benefits at the new clubs? Sure, especially since it looks like Disney World will have 4 of them. For now, we’ll just have to wait and see.
$25,000 (plus those annual dues) seems like a lot of cash to fork over for access to a private restaurant. While I won’t be handing over a decent chunk of our children’s college tuition to grab a membership, I’m insanely curious to have dinner there. I’d love to dine at the original Club 33 in Disneyland. But, let’s be honest. I’d consider myself pretty darn lucky to get an invite to any of them.
