Secret fact of the night #33; Disneyland’s Club 33.

Club 33 is an exclusive and extremely secretive club where membership is required to enter at Disneyland in Anaheim, CA. While originally intended for exclusive use by Disneyland’s corporate sponsors and other industry VIPs, when Club 33 opened in May 1967 (five months after Disney’s death) individual memberships were also offered.

As of 2011, there is a 13 year wait list for membership. It only allows 487 members. And members pay an initiation fee of either $27,500 (if they are a corporation) or $10,450 (for individuals). On top of that, they pay annual fees of about $6,000 or $3,000.

The club is located in New Orleans Square. Many are lead here after coming off the Pirates of the Caribbean ride and never even notice it. Club 33 is the only location in the entire park where any alcohol is served. And at the same time, due to it’s exclusivity for having very high statured people (from CEOs, to Celebrities, to even Presidents and other world leaders.) Club 33 was not designed to stand out or draw attention. To help keep the veil of secrecy, the club door and entryway were painted a very subdued color referred to by Disney designers as ‘noseeum’. According to the engineers, this color is the least recognized in the spectrum when viewed by the human eye.

The Club is passed by thousands of people everyday at the park with little to no knowledge of what it represents.
