Dining at Disneyland’s 21 Royal is a $15,000 Experience

Dining at 21 Royal is a $15,000 experience

Just above Pirates of the Caribbean at Disneyland is a dining experience like no other. Tucked away in New Orleans Square there is a staircase leading to a location that is so exclusive very few people know it is an option. Until January 2017 the dining experience at 21 Royal was reserved for the members of Club 33, but now you can have your chance to dine in incredible style. The dining location, aptly named for its location at 21 Royal Street was planned to be the in-park living quarters for Walt and Lillian Disney, but following Walt’s death in 1966 the project was stopped then finally finished in 2008 as the Disneyland Dream Suite. Just under 50 years later, in 2014, an announcement was made the venue would host an upscale dining experience.

In what can only be described as a signature and luxurious experience from the moment guests are picked up by private minibus at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel to the very end where they are either escorted back to the hotel or leave on their own accord to spend time in the theme park. However, an experience of this nature will cost you. The price tag for this luxury is $15,000 for the evening. Hosts may invite up to 11 guests for a total of 12 in the dining room.

So what exactly does a $15,000 dinner encompass? When guests call Disneyland directly to book the 21 Royal private dinner experience it is personalized from the start where a date is agreed upon between the guest and the resort. The guest and chef will then meet to craft a customized menu.

When the event day arrives guests are greeted by butlers offering craft cocktails and appetizers. After time is allowed to enjoy the pre-dinner festivities and a brief history lesson of 21 Royal the guests move to the dining room for the meal. While dining, wine stewards, chefs, and the wait staff will entertain with their stories.

The meal itself is eaten off plates that are gold-plated with the 21 logo. Crystal goblets adorn the table set with linen table cloths. Each course may be accompanied by perfectly paired wines if the guest chooses. The food is prepared by phenomenal Disney chefs with gourmet chef, Andrew Sutton keeping an eye on the experience from beginning to end.

When the five-hour dinner comes to a close the guests are offered coffee and after-dinner drinks which they may enjoy on the balcony. For an added treat, on nights when Fantasmic! is running guests have the opportunity to enjoy the show from this unique and spectacular viewing place.

So if you please, gather your friends for this exclusive dining experience. Broken down to 12 people the cost is really only $1,250 each, or if you are feeling very generous you can foot the $15,000 bill for this incredible dining experience at 21 Royal in the Disneyland Dream Suite.
