Your First Visit

Quite often, your first experience can be, well, a bit overwhelming. A myth, a phenomenon, a whisper from guests passing by the anonymous door, the club is surrounded by mystique. 

Speaking from experience, my initial visit to the club was a little stressful. When to show up, correct attire, what to say when going through the door, proper etiquette, an endless list of worries. I was very conscientious of embarrassing the member who signed us in. Needless to say, in a matter of minutes the worries passed and a wonderful time was at hand. 

I have been asked by several soon-to-visit guests, the same questions which I also endlessly pondered. To assist, here are my general impressions and answers. Please understand, these are based upon my own experiences. 


When to arrive at the park:
Arrive at the park at least one hour earlier than your reservation time. An hour should allow enough time to park your vehicle, ride the tram, visit Guest Relations, enter the park, and thusly walk to the club. Unless you have an annual pass, you will be required to pay for parking.  Actual club members do not. 

What to wear:
Please click on this link to visit our Dress Code page. 

Where to go first:
If you do not have annual passes and the club member has allocated Park Hopper passes for you from their allotment, the first place to visit after parking is Guest Relations. Guest Relations is located on the East side of the entrance to California Adventure, behind the concrete wall, near the lockers.  Tell the cast member you have reservations at the club, give them your name and number of guests in your party.

They will have a list of club visitors for that particular day. After checking your ID, the cast member will hand you the Park Hopper passes for your party.

Time to arrive at the club:
Arrive at the club at the designated time of your reservations. Frequently the club is busy and if they are clearing tables or making special arrangements, they may ask  that guests wait within The Court of Angels until their table is prepared. Never worry, refreshments are generally close at hand within The Court of Angels.

If you do arrive early, the club requests no sooner than five minutes.

Allow yourself and your guests enough time to walk through the busy park. Major holidays may experience heavy foot traffic.

How to get inside:
The entrance has been relocated and is now located to the right of Le Bat en Rouge. The original entrance door to the club will remain in place, next to The Blue Bayou, but will no longer be utilized. This for beautiful door with the engraved '33' glass above it and the two gas lamps flickering away.

If your reservations are at the initial opening time of the club (11:OOAM for lunch, 5:00PM for dinner), and you're early, there will be no answer when you push the speaker button. Please do not worry. When the club is ready, they will answer the door. They normally do not open early, preferring a routine schedule. A small line usually forms at the door, so waiting patiently pays off as guests are seated in order of check in. Please allow the staff time to make the preparations and process the check ins. 

Once inside:
You're now inside! The host/hostess will greet you and ask if they can take your hat and coat. Once situated, the host will call upstairs via a special phone and inform the maitre' d your party is present. There is normally a small wait time of perhaps three to five minutes while preparations are finalized upstairs. Please be patient. 

Stairs or lift:
Once preparations are complete, you will be informed that your table is ready. The host will ask if you would care to take the stairs or the beautifully appointed elevator.

Enjoy your visit to the most exclusive and wondrous restaurant located within the Disneyland Resort.

Bon appetite!
