“Fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

This is a have to do it at least once experience. You have to know someone to get in. We were there for my sister's birthday. We all had a good time. Service was excellent. The food was good. It is pricey. You are going for the experience and to be a part of history. This place is an icon.

“Raise a glass to Walt”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

We brought a group of friends in celebration of a double retirements. The anticipation of the event was very high and the concerns over disappointment was rising. We need not have worried. The atmosphere is so special and though the term 'faded gentility' or 'dated' might be used by some to a Disneyland Fanatic - this is a historic and to some hallowed grounds. If you are a Disneyland fan you have reached the Mother Ship. This is about history and being in a special club. Remember that Club 33 merchandise may only be purchased within Club 33!

Now about the service. We were at the end of the lunch hour - 2 PM. The service was uneven. Everyone leading up to the table was superb. The buffet staff were at the ready to provide information and assist. Our waiter was friendly but not as attentive as my previous experience. The gentleman that provided support actually eavesdropped on our conversation, entered his opinion and talked over one of our party. I've been to Club 33 on four occasions. This behavior was completely out of any previous experience. This was followed by staff setting up for dinner in a rather loud manner. I know we did not rush our meal, but when everyone at a party realizes they were holding up the staff - it isn't appropriate.

The lunch buffet is quite good. Offerings from the menu were good - halibut, Chateaubriand, salmon... This is not a foodies paradise, but everything we ate was appreciated by all.

Be aware that policy has changed for Club 33. Admission to the park are given to members and the number of admissions differ with the level of membership. If you are invited by a member, they may not offer admission to the park. This means you either have a pass, have someone kind enough to sign you in or you pay park admission. This is in addition to the cost of the meal. The buffet lunch and entree are an $80 minimum. This includes water as your beverage, anything else is additional. The dress code has been changed to include sandals! Check your dress code policy, because buying appropriate clothes in the park can become an adventure.

“Great Experience. . .Okay food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

We loved the opportunity to dine at Club 33 and were very grateful for the invitation to do so. That being said, we could not have been more disappointed with the food. After reading all the reviews, we really were looking forward to a most memorable dining experience. The atmosphere of Club 33 held up to that; the food did not. The salad was average, the filets were very good (after having to send one back because it was difficult to cut even with a steak knife), and the desserts were nothing that I would ever order again. We couldn't have been more disapointed in the food. The service was excellent. So all in all, I guess it was a memorable dining experience--I'll remember the food not for what it was but for what it wasn't! We're giving it three stars for the overall experience and opportunity. The atmosphere would be a 5, the food would be a 2, the service would be a 5.

“There's nothing better.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Food is excellent, best in the Park. The current Vintner 5-course is very good. A combination of the best food you've ever had and the fact that you're dining in Walt Disney's private club just makes your day. Service is first class and worth every penny you drop here. My favorite thing is going out onto the balcony's of the Club and looking into New Orleans Square streets. The view is awesome. The experience is one-of-a-kind!

“Best friends that belong to Club 33....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Thanks! Our friends belong AND invited us to go along to dinner. Any time you get a chance to do or see behind the "curtain" at a Disney property you feel special. Club 33 is no different...and the food was excellent along with the service. We went on a little tour of the rooms...and acted like little kids getting on "Dumbo" ...this is the best experience ever!! But, there is a catch. We are going to Disney World in November with the same couple and we have reservations @ Victoria & Albert's...where I get to host. Ouch!
