The History of Club 33

Did you know that Club 33 was one of the last projects that Walt Disney created for Disneyland?

Walt Disney was planning to make Club 33 a reality when he was at the New York World's Fair in the mid 1960s. During his time there, he visited the VIP lounges. It gave Walt a dream to create a private lounge at Disneyland.

When Walt came back to Burbank, he started to create the club.

Unfortunately, Walt passed away in 1966 and Club 33 opened in the summer of 1967 at Disneyland's New Orleans Square.

Before Walt died, he asked Production Designer Dorothea Holt Redmond and Oscar winning Set Designer Emile Kuri to work on Club 33.

Check back and see the two artists behind the club.
