The Merchandise of Club 33

This is Part 6 of my Disneyland "Club 33" series.

Below, is the merchandise cabinet at Club 33. The merchandise inside is specific to Club 33 and is only available to club members and guests.


The upper part of the cabinet holds a baseball cap, mugs, glasses, key chains, pins......


.....boxed note cards, mouse ears, and even a bath robe.


You can see in the close-up below that there is also a Christmas ornament featuring the vulture from the Trophy Room.


The lower level of the cabinet has various articles of clothing....polo shirts, jackets, sweaters and even a Club 33 tote bag.


Here's a close-up of the key chain......


......and the lapel pin.


In 2007, a special set of note cards was available commemorating Club 33's 40th anniversary. Each card featured original concept art.


All four sketches are of the Trophy Room.


The fireplace and the special cabinet hanging above the diners all made it into the final design and still exist today (see my last post.)


This large hutch also exists today and can be seen in my last post.


The animal heads have all been removed from this room.


This giant mastodon tusk has also been removed.


Well, that's it for today. In my next post, we'll take a look at the view from Club 33's windows and balconies .

No home is complete at Christmas without a vulture ornament. I hope you picked one up!

Oh, I definitely picked one up, Dave! The staff said that an ornament is made each year representing something from inside Club 33. I'm glad that the current one was the vulture!

I would have gotten that vulture ornament, too! Thanks for giving us a tour of Club 33!

Really enjoying the tour!

I can only guess that animal rights folks objected to the animal heads and the tusk removal? Or were they just considered kind of gross? I have to admit that the idea of an animal's preserved head hanging on the wall is kind of weird.

Dan and Sunday, glad you're enjoying these!

Major, I really don't know why the animal heads were removed. The Trophy Room also had a rifle from the Davy Crocket films that was signed by Fess Parker, but that was removed in the recent remodel...again, I don't know why. Now they have a bottle of Fess Parker's wine with his signature on it. I would rather have seen the rifle!
