Lounge Alley & More At Club 33

This is Part 5 of my Disneyland "Club 33" series.

This is Lounge Alley. Lounge Alley leads to Club 33's Main Dining Room, which we saw in my last post. It's also the location of Club 33's bar.


Located just across from the bar is this custom-designed harpsichord.


The painting on the inside of the lid depicts New Orleans harbor in the nineteenth century.


Here is the view of Lounge Alley from the opposite end. In the distance is a very unique antique table.


We were told by the staff that the table was carved out of a single piece of wood.


Here's another one-of-a-kind antique. We were told by a cast member that this table is in the Guinness Book of World Records......for the world's longest handstand. (Groan!) Hey, I didn't come up with it, I'm just repeating it!


This side table is from the film Mary Poppins. It was used in the foyer of the Banks' home.


Here's a photo showing Shirley Temple presenting Walt Disney with a specially designed Oscar for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.


And here's a painting by Disney artist, Charles Boyer. It depicts Walt sitting in the finished Club 33 and enjoying the view from one of it's windows....something he never was able to do.


The window in the photo below is actually located directly over Royal St, which runs underneath this part of Club 33. We'll see a photo of the view from this window in an upcoming post. The cabinet to the right holds Club 33 merchandise that is available to Club 33 members and guests. We'll take a look at some of the merchandise in a future post as well.


And now for a sneak peak inside the men's room.


Special paper hand towels are available.


Don't forget to WASH YOUR HANDS!


This is a working "water closet" type of toilet. Just pull the chain on the left and gravity will bring the water which is stored in the wooden cabinet above, down into the toilet bowel. Ingenious!


A lighting fixture located just inside the restroom.....


....and a picture that hangs on one of the restroom walls.


Next time we'll take a look at The Merchandise of Club 33, followed by my final post of this series, The View from Club 33.

You are killing me with this detailed series. I always knew I wanted to go to Club 33, now I'm obsessed with it! Nice bathroom shots! Mary Poppins furniture - Charles Boyer painting - WOW!!!! I'm afraid security would have to remove me since I'd never leave!

Dan, let's put it this way...I will never have to buy paper towels again in my lifetime. Just kidding! I only took a few!

That custom harpsichord isn't as nice as MY custom harpsichord, but it will do in a pinch.
