First Look and Photo Review: The NEW Club 33 in Disneyland!

The time has come! Ever since we told you about the Club 33 renovation in Disneyland, we’ve been awaiting opening night…and now we’ve got PICTURES!! (You can see a history of Club 33 here.)

Heather will be busily working on her full review for ya, but I couldn’t help sharing a few gorgeous photos of what the newly renovated (and MOVED) restaurant looks like now. I’m happy to say that there have been lots of positive additions, and some of the classic touches from Walt’s day have survived. Let’s take a look!

Atmosphere

As many know, the Court of Angels in New Orleans Square was a favorite spot for picture-taking…and just “getting away from it all” in Disneyland for many guests. This area has now been taken over by the new entryway of Club 33!

You can see details and the backstory on this area over at Daveland’s Page. But here’s what it looks like today…

The look and feel of 33 is now heavily accented with Art Nouveau touches, and the detail starts here on the stairs with this lighting.

As always, Club 33 retains its mystery. Many will remember the old entrance — just a nondescript door with a “33” plaque and a doorbell next to it.

Today, the entrance remains understated. No big signs point the way to this exclusive location.

But the doorbell has received an upgrade. Still under-the-radar, but a bit classier.

Once you get buzzed inside, you’ll see that the new space is well appointed, indeed. This chandelier shows that no expense has been spared.

And guests may be excited to know that a new Salon lounge has been added to the mix! No more waiting awkwardly in the entryway for your table to be ready!

I think this is one of my favorite parts of the new space. Check out this cozy decor!

And you remember how I said that many of the classic touches from Walt’s day have been saved? The old Club 33 Lift has been turned into a Salon table…for one! ;-)

Speaking of classic touches, the Club 33 Vulture has made the trip to the new location!

Once you’re seated in the Salon awaiting your table, thumb through the new eats and drinks you can consider as appetizers! We loved the Diamond Martini, a new 33 signature drink.

Ready to head inside the dining room? Here we go! The tables and settings are reminiscent of the old Club 33, with a few modern touches here and there.

Menus are now the purview of Disneyland’s favorite chef, Andrew Sutton, who currently also holds the reigns at Napa Rose and Carthay Circle Restaurant. They’ve been fully updated with the new renovation.

The full review of dinner will come along with Heather’s review soon, but I couldn’t help whetting your appetite with a few delicacies from the night! This Peach Panna Cotta Amuse Bouche was served to all guests.

And the new Corn Chowder is anything but dull.

But me? I was most excited to see MONKEY BREAD on the menu! Any fancy schmancy restaurant willing to serve monkey bread is my kind of place! ;-)

    My husband and I celebrated my birthday at Club 33, June 28, and it was life a changing experience. I hope to go again. The protocol of the staff, the amazing menu, the experience was life changing. I’ve traveled all over our world and this experience rated very high on my life list. I was looking forward to purchasing a Club 33 bag, however, I was so enamored with the whole experience I left without purchasing a coveted bag. My Disneyland experience has always been an ongoing life event and I look forward to the future.
