Disney Offering Membership To Fancy Exclusive Club for First Time in 10 Years
For the first time in ten years, Disney is sending out invitations to a people that are vying to become members at its exclusive Club 33.
The club has been closed to new members for the past decade, reports the OC Register, despite an 800-person waiting list. What are all these people so anxious to become a part of? Well, members of Club 33 have access to a fancy-schmancy private restaurant on the premises of Disneyland, a handful of annual passes for the California and Florida locations, valet parking, VIP itinerary planning, and now, 50 guest passes a year.
All for the low, low introductory price of $25,000 a person, and $10,000 in annual dues.
Oh, and the club is opening up a new lounge at Disney California Adventure. So, there's that.
The Register reports that despite the long list, only 100 invites will be sent out.
The only thing that might make membership worth it is the fact that the club is the only place in Disneyland that serves alcohol. (Disney California Adventure Park serves booze but sometimes you run into people like this.)
