If you’re a diehard Disney fan, you’ve probably heard of Club 33 – the exclusive, members-only restaurant at California’s Disneyland resort that was originally designed by Walt Disney.
Club 33 has now expanded to Walt Disney World®, in the form of four lounges – one in each theme park. Members enjoy special access and exceptional service, such as a private shuttle between parks, and a guide who serves as your walking FastPass with the tour.
The initial price to join, according to various theme park blogs, is around $30,000 with an annual membership fee of at least $10,000. Membership is by invitation only and includes:
- Access to all four Walt Disney World Club 33 locations
- Premier Passport for the member, spouse and children under age 26
- 50, 1-day park hopper tickets a year
- 5 day-long VIP guided tours
- Access to a private concierge service
- A limited number of instant FastPass+ reservations
The Hollywood Studios Club 33 is known as the Spotlight Lounge, and is located in the former Catwalk Bar area. The Epcot lounge is called the Constellation Club, and can be found above the American Adventure. Captain’s Quarters is the name of the Magic Kingdom lounge, which is located in Adventureland. Finally, Club 33 at Animal Kingdom will open in the Africa section of the park and will be called Harambe House.
Residents of Disney World's Golden Oak luxury resort community have reportedly been the first to be offered membership in Club 33. So if you want to improve your chances of joining the club, you may want to consider purchasing a vacation home in this private community. Golden Oak features four neighborhoods of custom homes, with two more in the planning stages. Private residences are also available for purchase at the Four Seasons Resort Orlando.
Golden Oak home buyers can choose from a variety of floor plans ranging from 3,000 to 12,000 square feet of living space, on homesites as large as three-quarters of an acre. Residents also benefit from membership in the Golden Oak Club, a private social and recreational club featuring fine dining, a heated pool, 24-hour fitness center and family/rec room with game area.
