See, this is what I would do if I had boatloads of money.....
 
2012-05-09 06:46:16 AM
I'll just bring a $5 hip flask filled with $10 worth of bourbon.

You have to be really jonesing for a drink to pony up that much money.
 
2012-05-09 08:36:46 AM
There's a place or three like this in Tokyo, including one secret Tempura restaurant you have to reserve. They only serve two parties per day, so you have to reserve the whole place for either the afternoon or evening and it's service level is such that even visiting dignitaries, like Bill Clinton, are taken there by the government.

Everywhere has their own little secret places. I'd like to make it into 33 one day.

If there's one thing the Disney corporation could use, it's more money from stupid people.
 
2012-05-09 09:32:46 AM
LOL. I won't even buy an annual pass for Disney.

Petit_Merdeux: I'll just bring a $5 hip flask filled with $10 worth of bourbon.


That's exactly what I do only with vodka. Have to get through the day at that place somehow.

I can't imagine hanging out with the type of people who would pay that kind of money to hang out in a snooty restaurant at Disney.

Why am I picturing an exclusive club only instead of hot women, there are teenagers everywhere giving out handjobs?

Being a House Republican really isn't all that exclusive.
 
2012-05-09 11:08:27 AM
That's not that much more than what they charge for water at their parks.

Please, they're called "interns."

Been there, done that, on someone else's dime.

I'd rather risk Florida, and drink my way around the WS in Epcot.
 
2012-05-09 11:54:52 AM
Just park hop over to CA Adventure, they sell beer, wine and tequila.

The wife and I came up with much better ideas.

1) 2 years ago we took incredibly potent "cookies" into disneyland. The gal rifling through our bags at the entrance actually pulled out the air tight ziploc baggies containing 4 cookies in each bag(air tight because these things smelled strongly of herb) and didn't bat an eye. Much more enjoyable to have than a drink, didn't have to worry about my stomach getting upset on space mountain because I had one too many whiskeys.

2) We're planning our next trip to disneyland and intend to bring our good friend molly with us. Lasts longer than drinking, feels better than drinking, and will make the cool lights from the parade and all the other shows 10x more awesome.

None of these options require $25,000 and 10k/year. fark club 33.

I wouldn't want to drink at Disneyland. I need my wits about me in order to spot any potential downblouse or upskirt views nearby.
 
2012-05-09 12:06:41 PM
The idea that there is a secretive Disney club makes me laugh. My weirdo neighbors in robes keep popping into my head.

Eh I just finished my McDonalds burrito :P. But really who wants to spend this obscene amount of money for the pleasure of drinking in disneyland? It's truly for rich people who have waaaayyyy more money than brains. Just sneak in flask, or do what we did. You'll be much happier in the end :P

that's what Epcot is for. Playing drink around the world.
 
2012-05-09 12:18:43 PM
epcot offer valid at Disneyworld only of course..
 
2012-05-09 12:23:09 PM
Man, for that money there better be some "Eyes Wide Shut" secret society shiat going on in there!
 
2012-05-09 12:24:08 PM
I don't think anyone who eats McDonald's should be judging how people of means spend their money.

I'm no lightweight, and have considered it when I have gone, but the drink prices could almost pay for the plane ticket to visit those actual locales, so I haven't ever completed the journey.

I will say Disney food is pricey, but it is superb.
 
2012-05-09 12:30:05 PM
I'm with Groucho on this one. I'll pass.
 
2012-05-09 12:30:05 PM
I like Disneyland but even if I had a buttload of money I still wouldn't waste it on something like this. No way the food in there is better than a nice restaurant on the outside. Plus, who goes to Disneyland to eat fancy? It is a theme park. You go there and eat garbage and have fun and then go home.

Wellon Dowd: I wouldn't want to drink at Disneyland. I need my wits about me in order to spot any potential downblouse or upskirt views nearby.

Heh... I thought that was just me. Last time I was at Disney I was amazed at all the hot mommies in low tops constantly bending over and exposing the girls. But the best are the parades, when the hot mommies and teens sit on the curb facing me and my HD camcorder to watch the parade. I had to go through and edit my movies before showing them to the kids, because so much of the parade footage was focused on upskirt stuff.

The worst French and Japanese food I ever had was at Epcot. And the waitress at the French restaurant was shocked I actually been to France.

/kind of telling of the type of visitors they get
 
2012-05-09 12:52:58 PM
With those kinds of dues, I should hope there wouldn't be any troublesome "bill" on the table after I have my food and drink.

First explain to me why I am in DisneyLand. This story better involve sharks and at least four naked women so hot they melt my eyes if I look directly at them.

mohron: I'm no lightweight, and have considered it when I have gone, but the drink prices could almost pay for the plane ticket to visit those actual locales, so I haven't ever completed the journey.


Yeah, my tolerance is way too high and bank account is way too low to drink around the world at EPCOT. Plus, you're going to be drinking French and Japanese wine, German and Norwegian beer and Mexican tequila. That's a hangover right there.

I like the pub in England though. I do love an English pub, even if it's a fake Disney one.

Braindeath: First explain to me why I am in DisneyLand. This story better involve sharks and at least four naked women so hot they melt my eyes if I look directly at them.


Farker Braindeath knew it was but a matter of time now; the four nude, pustule-ridden magma-women of Djdjabringabeeralong had bound him hand and foot to the shark tank. The worst part wasn't the horde of families watching, thinking this was part of the "Exploited Cultures Land" floor show. It wasn't that several costumed characters had mimed sexual gestures at him as he was being bound, or even that the tank filled with sharks he was bound to was crafted of molded ice that was rapidly melting in the presence of the lava-lasses. No, the worst part was that he'd been lured here by the most devious ruse of all, the "Fark Party". Somewhere, bathed in the glow of LCD screens, Drew chuckled softly to himself and poured another measure of scotch.

David Koenig, an author best known for his book "Mouse Tales: A Behind-the-Ears Look at Disneyland," wondered how the new space would fit into the storied history surrounding Club 33.

"They're trying to create a second Club 33," he said. "A Club 34."



"Isn't this unique thing great?!?! Lets make more of it!!!"

Yay for cooperate-think!

And the Yakatori House restaurant doesn't serve Yakatori. We walked all the way around that farking lake to get some Yakatori for dinner, just to find out they didn't offer any, instead they were selling Teriyaki bowls. Such fail.

That said, I have eaten at Club 33. Sunday brunch. Twas nice. Back when it was easy for members to bring guests in.
 
2012-05-09 01:34:49 PM
Something I've been wondering....

If you are a member, is everything else free then? I mean, do you pay your $10,000, then still have to pay for dinner and/or drinks? Do you have to shell out more money for park tickets? What's included with this annual fee?
 
2012-05-09 01:43:14 PM
"This is the place Walt and the animators might've chatted, relaxed, unwound."

Yeah, if Walt and the animators were wealthy, pretentious douchebags - then yes, this is probably where they would have hung out.

Just take the monorail to the Disneyland Hotel and hit up the bar there.

You do have to pay for your food at Club 33. Lunch is a bit cheaper than dinner.

You do not have to pay for your park admission (but there is a catch). And you are entitled, depending on your membership level, to a set number of free park tickets each day of the year.

The catch...that free admission is only free because you MUST eat in Club 33 (lunch of dinner) on the day of your visit. If you don't, the membership owner gets a lovely bill for the cost of the park admission and an unpleasant note reminding him or her that free park tickets are only free when the visitor drops some coin for food at the restaurant.

I've eaten there a few times, always as a guest of a member. The food is good and the service is what you would expect in a restaurant where you are dropping $75+ per person. It isn't worth the buy-in and annual membership costs to me, but I don't begrudge anyone with the coin who spends it that way.
