Club 33, Royal Street

Club 33 - www.WaltsApartment.comClub 33, Royal Street was Walt Disney’s vision of a private dining club where he could bring  dignitaries, celebrities, business partners, clients and friends. Sadly, Walt never got to have a meal here, as he passed away before it was completed.

Club 33 opened on June 15, 1967, almost a year after New Orleans Square was dedicated, and just six months after Walt Disney died. True to his original vision, the club was an elegant success. Walt enlisted set designer Emile Kuri to develop it’s look.
