Disney Opens New Memberships to Club 33

Big news for Disneyphiles: For the first time in a decade, Disneyland is opening up new memberships to its exclusive Club 33—the secretive spot hidden inside the park, according to the Orange County Register.

As of last week, Disney began sending embossed invitations to the first 100 people on its 800-name waiting list, asking if they are interested in joining the club. Individual initiation fees cost $25,000 and annual dues are $10,000. The club has not taken new names for the list in 10 years.

The openings come with new perks: The 1901 private lounge will open June 15 in Disney California Adventure as part of its $1 billion makeover project, Disney confirmed this week. (The 1901 name comes from the year that Walt Disney was born.) Only club members and their guests are allowed behind the door next to a “33″ plaque, marking the address of 33 Royal Street. Club 33 is the only place in Disneyland where alcohol is regularly served.

Membership now will include private services, including valet parking and VIP itinerary planning. Anyone interested in joining can email  [email protected].
