That’s right!! We’re enjoying the 2018 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival which is currently running through May 28th as the annual celebration of Spring. (And we’ve already made terrific Festival memories this year at the Epcot Festival of the Arts). But you know the absolute highlight of the year here at the DFB is the Food and Wine Festival, and we’re excited about all the Festival Fun still to come at Epcot in 2018!

Hollywood Studios Club 33 Location at Disney World Confirmed

Recently, a not-so-mysterious doorbell made an appearance in the American Adventure Pavilion in Epcot. And now? A similar — yet different — doorbell has been spotted behind The Hollywood Brown Derby in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

This one is at the elevator that likely leads up to the old Catwalk Bar above Brown Derby!

Why do I say “not-so-mysterious”? Because in 2017 Disney confirmed that four Club 33 lounges would be opening in Disney World. Club 33 is known — and even legendary — for being an exclusive, members-only club with its first, and most iconic, location in Disneyland. Designed by none other than Walt Disney himself, the restaurant was made to entertain friends and VIPs. These days, entrance is gained by a hefty initial membership fee in addition to annual dues.

Whether you’ve been able to pass through the Club 33 doors in Disneyland or not, you may have noticed its famous doorbell by which members announce their arrival to Club 33.

And it appears that each location in Disney World will receive similar doorbell treatment… though with an added feature.

Epcot Club 33 Location

There have been some changes in Epcot’s American Adventure Pavilion as of late. Just recently, the Pavilion’s attraction, The American Adventure, debuted an updated film finale and anthem.

But there’s been a less noticeable change in the Pavilion, too — however small doesn’t mean insignificant. To the right facing the Pavilion’s theater entrance is a new addition.

If you’re new to the Epcot Food and Wine Festival here’s what this means.
