Do It. Club 33.

If you ever get the chance to go to Club 33, do it. The mysterious club is in the heart of Disneyland's New Orleans Square, but that doesn't mean it's easily accessible. Entrance is only granted to members (they're not even accepting names for the waiting list at this point) or invited guests.

Club 33 isn't a nightclub (although, with its full bar, it is the only place at Disneyland to serve alcohol) with DJs and strobe lights--in fact, quite the opposite. It's more like a country club. There's a dress code, white tablecloths, big comfortable chairs, and fine china.

The great thing about being at Club 33, is that it's a second-story restaurant, so the balcony has views of the fireworks and shows at night without the hassle of being in the crowd on the street. It's pretty special to finish your Chateaubriand, step outside to catch Summer Nightastic, and come back in for dessert and a cappuccino. And then leave to make the line for Splash Mountain before midnight (not before paying a hefty bill though).

Walt Disney himself envisioned having this exclusive club, which is telling enough that it's worth checking out, if the chance comes up.

Club 33 is located at 33 Rue Royale in Disneyland - Anaheim, Calif.
