Disney's Club 33

This is my dream, I want, no need to eat here!

Disney's Club 33

There is an exclusive restaurant at Disneyland in California that every Disney fan dreams of going to. This place is called Club 33. If you have not heard of Club 33 than sit back and enjoy this journey.

Club 33 opened in May 1967. The club is located at the address of Club 33, Royal Street, New Orleans Square, Disneyland. Walt Disney felt that he needed a special where he could meet with dignitaries and others in quiet. He made sure the atmosphere was serene and the cuisine was superb and there would be distinctive decor. Walt asked artists Dorothea Redmond to provide watercolor rendering of what such a place just might look like. Walt and his wife Lillian traveled to New Orleans with decorator Emil Kuri to select antiques that would be on display. Even though Club 33 opened up in 1967 Walt would never get to see it finished as he died five months before it opened.

Club 33 has two dining rooms and several adjoining areas, all of these areas house antiques and original works of art. The Main Dining Room is decorated in First Empire, or the recalling of the era of Napoleon and the early nineteenth century. The second dining room is the Trophy Room and offers more of an informal atmosphere. The room has cypress planked walls and sketches for the Jungle Cruise and Tiki Room attractions.

Club 33 is a functioning exclusive private club where members and/or their guests may enjoy a gourmet meal and fine wines. The tradition also incorporates gracious hospitality that has been a staple since the opening day. There is a fee however to get a membership at Club 33. There is a $25,000 initiation fee per person and a $10,000 a year due. As of last spring there is currently an 800 person waiting list, so its no wonder that celebrities are among some of the members.

The membership does have some perks! You get access to the club for you and guests plus you get to go into the brand new 1901 lounge that is located at Disney's California Adventure. You have itinerary planning and valet parking. A Club 33 member answered questions on Reddit and said that he has gotten upgrades on a Disney cruise because he was a member. He has also gotten behind the scene tours of Disneyland attractions. But your membership does not include any meals. Meals can cost around $150 not including alcohol and you must book your reservations months in advance.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
