Disneyland Without My Camera

I was in California last week, with a big crew from Bruce's company. Shannon was there too, which was fun- well, you remember my post about the whole LAX thing, right? Anyway, I drove down a few days after they flew and got to spend the day with them at Disneyland.

One wrinkle in the plan: Bruce didn't want me to take my camera into the park. One of the new work people had been diligently taking photos with her phone and he didn't want her to feel bad. So I left my camera behind. Big mistake. One I won't be repeating.

The one day that the Disney reps take us to lunch at Club 33, and I don't have my camera. (We did our best with Bruce's phone.)
Club 33 is a private VIP club above the Pirates ride in Disneyland. Walt Disney's idea of an exclusive lounge and restaurant, it's officially still a "secret" in the park. There is a 14-year waiting list to pay $10,000 to join the club and that doesn't include the yearly dues, which are $3,000-$6000 a year. If you are a member, you can will your membership to your descendants. Exclusive? Yes.
The food was delicious (the dessert buffet had these mini hot chocolate cups with the most decadent cocoa!), Disney artifacts were everywhere, it was just a cool experience.
Then when we got back to our rooms at the end of a long Disney day, strawberries, whipped cream and chocolate sauce were waiting for us. :)
 Barbara, will you enter Disneyland without your camera again? No, no I will not.
