I’m still pinching myself! I can’t believe we had the opportunity to visit and dine at Club 33 in Disneyland. Club 33 is an exclusive membership club, where you can only get a reservation if you are a member or if you know a member and they make a reservation for you. We had a connection through work that made us a reservation at Club 33. Non-members can only eat in the dining room they aren’t allowed in the bar area unless a member is present with them.
Once you are checked in you wait in the Court of Angels. This area is so pretty! This area actually used to be a public part of Disneyland. In fact, I even have a photo of me standing on those steps as a child.
This was such a pretty place to wait before being seated for our meal. When visiting Club 33, photos are allowed (except in the bathrooms). We used our time waiting by snapping photos on the stairs in the Court of Angels.

Here is a peek into the dining room. There are checkered floors, lots of windows, fancy place settings, it has a very elegant feel to it without it being over the top.
The plates even have the Club 33 logo in gold.
Our waiter was amazing, friendly and very attentive. The service was everything you would expect from a fancy restaurant.
I loved this big picture window where we could see straight into Disneyland. As you can tell, the parks were a little busy on this day.
When we made our reservations at Club 33, we were given the option of a 4 course lunch for $90 per person or a 5 course dinner for $120 per person. I’m not gonna lie, the frugal person in me screamed “GO FOR LUNCH!” However, we were visiting on my son’s 22nd birthday and he really wanted to eat dinner, so we splurged and went with the five course meal (and I am so glad we did). The neat thing is the menu changes with the seasons. We were dining in March and we just caught the tail end of the winter menu, which I thought was absolutely amazing!
They have a regular menu and a vegetarian menu you can choose from, you can mix and match from both sides of the menu too.
They also have a kids menu that offers 3 courses for $40 for either lunch or dinner. The menu states ages 9 and under, but this menu was automatically given to my youngest son who is 14 (but looks more like 12). I am grateful this was an option because he is our pickiest eater. I knew he wouldn’t have been impressed with the adult meals. He actually loved his entire meal from the kids menu, which was such a relief!
There is an extensive drink menu. We don’t drink alcohol and there were plenty of great non-alcoholic drinks options too.
No paper straws at Club 33!
Our meal started off with an Amuse-bouche, it was a Polenta Frittata rice ball and it was so good.
Ok, I’m gonna be honest here. I mentioned that my youngest is our pickiest eater, but I am pretty picky myself. I told myself I was going to be brave and at least try everything. This was my first course, I chose the Grilled Winter White Asparagus with Black Truffle Aioli, and it was divine! It was probably the best tasting vegetable I have eaten in my life. Seriously, so good!
There is that gorgeous window again! We chose to eat at 5:30 which was one of the first dinner reservations available. I really liked this time because we had the dining room almost all to ourselves for the first 20 minutes or so. It definitely got more crowded as the meal went on.
Next bread was brought to our table. Even the bread basket had a fancy Club 33 logo. Did I mention this place is classy? It was so enjoyable to enjoy a meal at a place where the service and food were top notch. This was definitely a once in a lifetime experience and totally worth the amount of money we spent.
The bread was just as good as it looked.
For my second course I chose the Green Oak Salad, Red Endive, Spiced Walnuts with Cranberry Tangerine Vinaigrette. I loved the salad too.
My husband chose the French Onion Soup for his second course.
Both my husband and son chose the Roasted Duck for their 3rd course. It’s amazing how much detail is put into each one of these dishes they served. Pretty and tasty!
I actually chose most of my items from the vegetarian menu. This was the Baked Ricotta Gundi. Again, it was amazing. I loved the fact that with the five course meal the portions were small and you really got to try a lot of different things. If meals like this weren’t so expensive I could get used to eating dinner this way.
I took a break in between courses to step out on the balcony. It was so amazing to stand on that patio and look down into Disneyland.
They even had a table out on the balcony. How cool would it be to eat overlooking New Orleans Square? After my break on the balcony we were served dinner, we all chose a different entree and they all were very good. Truthfully, I was getting a little full at this point and I knew I had to save room for dessert because everyone knows dessert is the best part.
They brought out a palate cleanser before dessert! Both my husband and I would have been happy to have this as dessert. It was just the right amount of sweetness and tartness.
Here is the dessert from the kids menu. Beignets with fresh berries and three different dipping sauces. Yummy!
I chose the Chocolate Pecan Bar, but was secretly wishing I could have my son’s dessert (thankfully he shared with me).
And if all that food wasn’t enough, they bought out boxes of chocolates for everyone in our party. We brought these home with us and sent them to the kids who were away at college and missed the whole Club 33 experience.
Pretty murals grace the walls in Club 33.
Shopping exclusive Club 33 merchandise is available to every one that visits Club 33.
Here is a peek at some of the exclusive merchandise you can purchase at Club 33. Those Club 33 Minnie ears came home with me for sure.
My husband got the baseball cap as his souvenir.
They have exclusive Club 33 bags for Dooney & Bourke fans.
Some jewelry, which was just a tad out of my price range.
