Listed and sold on ebay, 3-2-2008, was this beautiful postcard which clearly shows Kennedy was at the park on 6-3-1968.
His visit to Disneyland is mentioned in the
"The overhyped debate was regarded as anticlimactic, "a mutually pedestrian performance," wrote David Halberstam. For Kennedy, a draw was a win: he had exceeded expectations. McCarthy "didn't do his homework," Kennedy said. The next day the absentee father took his kids (six of them had come out to California) to Disneyland, where they rode Pirates of the Caribbean. On Monday came the final, grueling push: Los Angeles to San Francisco, back to Long Beach and Watts, and down to San Diego, 1,200 miles and all three major California TV markets. On the plane back to Los Angeles, he recovered from his near collapse during his last speech in San Diego, but he was reaching the limit of his physical endurance."
Vanessa Hudgens discusses Club 33 with Conan O'Brian!
Wow! I was at the club in early May and John Lassiter from Pixar was there! Dion
This past weekend was my very first visit to Club 33 and Sammy Hagar was there. I was so happy, but I obeyed the rules and didn't disturb him. Susan
Here is a nice piece of history from former Club 33 employee Richard Miller:
"On a lunchtime visit to the club October 12th

On Oct. 21st, 2007, Link from www.FrameFetish.com was enjoying dinner at Club 33 with friends from Universal Studios. Sitting directly behind them was one of the Nelson Brothers, son of rock legend Ricky Nelson (Ozzie and Harriet's son). Link said he was very friendly and they enjoyed talking.
I was visiting the club near Christmas of 2005 and while having dinner, we heard a most distinguished laugh from the table behind us! It was the famous actor Bernard Fox. He's best known for his roll as Dr. Bombay on Bewitched! He was a most likeable fellow, courteous and polite enjoying an evening with his family.

We were enjoying dinner at the club and were most fortunate to meet Ms. Mira Sorvino and her Husband Christopher Backus. They were very nice and watched Fantasmic from the balcony with the rest of the club guests.

On July 4th 2003 we were visiting the club and learned that Shaq and Kobe had reservations for that evening. They were both very nice and extremely professional. We enjoyed our wonderful 4th of July dinner!
Early in January, 2002, Mr. Kevin Kehoe was dining at Club 33 with his family. Mr. Kehoe heard a familiar voice behind him, and upon turning to see who it was, he met Mike Ness, lead singer of Social Distortion! The band was having dinner!

I went to Club 33 for my 30th birthday. I am not a member. A friend made some calls and was able to get me and my guests invited. Our waiter was so wonderful. Our reservation was at 6:30. He invited us to stay at the club after dinner to view the first showing of Fantasmic from the balcony. We still had many attractions to go on before the end of the day so we politely declined. He knew it was my birthday. He invited us to return at 9:45 to view the second showing of Fantasmic from Club 33's balcony after we had time to enjoy the other attractions. When we arrived back at Club 33, I realized that the Club was already closing. By the time the second Fantasmic was to start the club was closed. They stayed open just so my guests and I could view Fantasmic from their balcony. They even opened the bar for us during the show. This was more than a perfect ending to a wonderful day at Disneyland, Club 33 and to my 30th birthday. Club 33 was an amazing experience I will never forget.
