Club 33 is one step closer to its opening at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. While it is a small step, with minimal construction indicators visible and the filing of paperwork, it is a step none the less. The ultra-exclusive and somewhat elusive Club 33 has already been installed at the other three Walt Disney World theme parks.

The designed space is an area that falls between Africa and Pandora. The proposed site is a raised area off the pathway connecting the two areas. Club 33’s newest location will be known as Harambe House.  The other locations, Spotlight Lounge at Hollywood Studios, Constellation Lounge at Epcot, and Captian’s Quarters at the Magic Kingdom are themed to their specific areas.

Other than knowing the location of the Animal Kingdom Club and the markers showing the site there is not much else to see at this time. With the beautiful lush foliage and attention to detail, Animal Kingdom is known for this club will likely fit in beautifully.

Club 33 is a membership-only club that for many years was only open at Disneyland Park in California. In 2017 it was announced that the club would head to the east coast and open with locations in all four parks at Walt Disney World. Additional locations are located in Shanghai and Tokyo. The club is filled with a rich history, originally opening in 1967. The original location can be found in New Orleans Square just above Cafe Orleans and The French Market Restaurants. The restaurant locations while well known and marked with the 33 logo exist quietly with privileges extended to members and their guests.

Stay tuned for updates, and if you are like me, keep dreaming of your invitation to join Club 33.
