is open to the public while Club 33 is a private upstairs restaurant with its
own intercom system to admit guests.
Pirates of the Caribbean ride
passes by the Blue Bayou restaurant where no matter what time of day it is,
inside it is always night. Twinkling
lights, fireflies and the sound of crickets chirping create an atmosphere
intended to mimic the feel of New
Orleans. Blue Bayou has some of the tastiest
food in Disneyland with clam chowder, Cobb salads and other specialties
rising above the standard burger faire served at many Disneyland shops.
typically discuss bathrooms in association with food but the restroom at Club 33
is special. On our visit, the women's restroom had several toilet stalls with cane
seat covers you could look down the little holes through to see the toilet
bowl below. As you can see, the stalls were very small on our visit. The men's facilities are ordinary and uneventful, I was
told by a man.
Club 33 admission is private and must be arranged in advance
(contact Disneyland for details). The restaurant feels more like a house
than a dining establishment. As you climb the stairs or take the
antique elevator, rich wood tones, collector furnishings, fresh cut flowers
on hallway tables and a quiet atmosphere exuding elegance are in striking
contrast to the window views of crowds of people passing through New Orleans
Square below. Corporate functions pick from special menus while regular
dining offers a buffet for around $50 . Fresh pastas are prepared to your
taste at a pasta bar while the buffet offers numerous chilled salads which
include sea foods and grilled vegetables and main dishes with chicken,
beef, fish and pork. Then there's a pastry table with various cakes
Imprinted matches with your reservation name on them used
to await you at your table. The advent of "no smoking" laws in California
ended that amenity. Bottled water is poured into your wine glass
and though you don't see your food server, he or she is usually there,
waiting to cater to your needs of drinks and removing the plates so you
can return to the buffet for more.
