Disneyland’s secret and private Club 33 is undergoing a monthlong refurbishment that will add “sparkle and shine” to the New Orleans Square hangout for the rich and famous ahead of the 55th anniversary of the members-only club steeped in mystique.

The Club 33 refurbishment will keep Salon Nouveau closed through April 15 – with the cocktail lounge reopening on April 16.

The Court of Angels that serves as the entry courtyard for Club 33 members is also undergoing refurbishment. During the courtyard closure, members must enter through the gate next to Le Bat En Rouge and use the club elevator to reach Le Grand Salon and Le Salon Nouveau.

The Grand Salon — the club’s main dining room — remains open Wednesday through Sunday for lunch and dinner during the refurbishment of the Salon Nouveau lounge and Court of Angels entry courtyard.

Salon Nouveau has been closed for several weeks while Disneyland crews refurbish the elegant lounge. Past refurbishments have added new carpeting and draperies.

Disneyland bills Club 33 as exclusive, world class and shrouded in mystery. Club 33 was inspired by the VIP lounges Walt Disney experienced at the 1964 New York World’s Fair where It’s a Small World and Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln first debuted. The private Disneyland club opened in 1967 a few months after Disney’s death in late 1966.

Club membership costs $25,000 to join and $10,000 annually, according to Eater. The membership waiting list numbers in the hundreds and it can take more than a decade to receive an invitation. Tom Hanks, Christina Aguilera and Elton John — all of whom have professional Disney connections — are reportedly among the celebrity club members, according to Eater.

The second-story club takes its numerical name from its New Orleans Square address: 33 Royal St. Club 33 was famously the only place alcohol was served in Disneyland before Oga’s Cantina opened in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in 2019. New Orleans Square neighbor Blue Bayou began serving alcohol in May 2021 after a year-plus COVID-19 pandemic closure.

Club 33 underwent a six-month renovation in 2014 that completely reimagined the main dining room and added the Salon Nouveau cocktail lounge.

Napa Rose chef Gloria Tae and Club 33 chef Clint Chin switched places in February — making Tae the first female chef de cuisine at Club 33. Tae oversees the menus in Le Grand Salon and Le Salon Nouveau as well as the adjacent 21 Royal private dining experience.
