The Carthay Circle Theatre will act as a prominent focal point when Buena Vista Street opens at Disney California Adventure on June 15, 2012. In addition to a public restaurant, hidden within the Carthay Circle Theatre will be an exclusive club called 1901, named for the year in which Walt Disney was born.
And along with a first peek inside this swanky 1930s-style new club, Disneyland has announced for the first time in several years they have reopened the seemingly never-ending wait list for membership at the resort’s other exclusive eatery, Club 33 in New Orleans Square at Disneyland Park, which also will include access to 1901 when it opens this summer.
ABC news has also shared video inside both Club 33 and 1901.
Exclusivity is the key word when it comes to these lavishly decorated areas with a hefty price tag of a $25,000 initiation fee and $10,000 dues per year. These high prices also come with a number of theme park passes, both to give out to friends and family as well as several annual passes to enjoy personally. Combined with a wait list that’s literally years long, the high cost ensures both Club 33 and 1901 will remain as elite experiences for those who can afford them – and those who have friends who can afford them.
