The Trophy Room

Vintage Images Prior to Renovation

The following information and photos was obtained from an original club prospectus. To view the Trophy Room as it is currently decorated please click here.

"No British men's club ever enjoyed a more masculine atmosphere than the Trophy Room. And the stories spun here are likely to be taller by far than those that fill a big game hunter's den.

The walls of the Trophy Room (the rich wood look and touch of natural finish cypress) are lined with samples of the hunter's skill. Over a period of years, friends of Walt Disney had given him a prize collection of princely value: African antelope, mountain goat, native spears, masks and plumes. And the room's most valuable decorative showpiece, a nine-foot long, solid ivory mammoth tusk.

Forty-two guests dining at pub-like, natural oak tables will find their attention drawn not only to these treasures, but to several other seemingly passive birds and animals around the room. Above the fireplace, an owl and two magpies. Nearby, a raccoon. Across the room, a leering, hungry vulture.



This is no ordinary menagerie. For when the feathers begin to fly, and the tall tales are spun back and forth across the Trophy Room, the voices may not be those of your luncheon companions alone. To the contrary: these Audio-Animatronic performers are as talented as the marvelous Macaws in the Enchanted Tiki Room, and as talkative as "mother" in the General Electric Carousel of Progress. And the wise old owl on his fireplace perch has one more extraordinary talent; for a tuppence or two, he can talk directly for you. He may even know your guests by name!"


Interesting fact:
If you look closely at the mastodon tusk, you'll notice two, long wooden clubs, one on each side. Those are Fijian War Clubs, a rare and very dangerous weapon of the South Sea Islanders. 

If you are a Star Wars fan, you may recognize them as Gaffi Sticks, carried by the Tusken Raiders aka Sand People (though not the original film used clubs). 
LucasFilms added a finned tube to the handle with a small spike at the end. 

From this private club to a galaxy far, far away,  the imaginative vision of Walt Disney seems endless.

If you are a SW fan, you may also enjoy the relatively unknown Jabba The Hutt Easter Egg sculpted at the bottom of the new Tarzan's Tree House.
