Where Else To Celebrate Other That Disneyland
Thirteen years cancer free! Life is good! We went to Club 33 with new friends from the internet. After lunch we went to Big Thunder Railroad and Farm (Page Two) . We when headed to Fantasyland to ride Casey Jr. Circus Train (Page Three) . It was then time for the flag retreat and other great Disneyland adventures (Page Four) .
Guess what time of year it is???
Lunch is at 11:00 so we are right on time
He is enjoying the day... Nice and cool
Indeed it is
The Flowers Were Pretty
Did you know?
Did you know? - Halloween was brought to North America by immigrants from Europe who would celebrate the harvest around a bonfire, share ghost stories, sing, dance and tell fortunes.
A pumpkin tree? Only at Disneyland

Did you know? - Piracy is a war-like act committed by private parties (not affiliated with any government) that engage in acts of robbery and/or criminal violence at sea.
The term can include acts committed in other major bodies of water or on a shore. It does not normally include crimes committed against persons travelling on the same vessel as the perpetrator (e.g. one passenger stealing from others on the same vessel). The term has been used to refer to raids across land borders by non-state agents.
Piracy should be distinguished from privateering, which was authorized by their national authorities and therefore a legitimate form of war-like activity by non-state actors. This form of commerce raiding was outlawed in the 19th century.
Did you know? - The entry door to Club 33 has changed little since 1967. Only the mirrored plaque with the numbers "33" designate this door as leading to something special. Entry is made by actual members by inserting their membership card into the card slot located on the left of the recessed door way. Non-members push the small button located under the small brass door. The host or hostess asks the name under which the reservations were made, and the lock releases.
Did you know? - Club 33 is a private club located in the heart of the New Orleans Square section of Disneyland. Officially maintained as a secret feature of the theme park, the entrance of the club is located next to the Blue Bayou Restaurant at "33 Royal Street" with the entrance recognizable by an ornate address plate with the number 33 engraved on it. When riding Pirates of the Caribbean, just as the ride departs, the Blue Bayou restaurant is visible, but the balconies above it are actually a part of Club 33.
Its a long story but Jesse contacted us about the possibility of going to Club 33 and through the magic of the Duda's and Liles it was arranged... New friends from Montana!

Did you know? - Upon entering the club you are greeted by your host or hostess. Impeccably dressed, they'll take your hat and coat and arrange for your journey upstairs. The host or hostess stay in close contact with the maitre' d, making sure everything is in order upon your arrival.

We Have Our Own "Private Room" Called The Trophy Room
The china hutch at the end of this long table is truly beautiful
Did you know? - He is no doubt, the star of the trophy room. This is the actual animatronic California Turkey Vulture which was designed to talk to guests while they dined. The actor, hidden in the sound room would control the vulture and listen to guest's conversations through microphones hidden in the dining room lamp fixtures. The screens covering the mics are still in the lamps but the wiring and mics have long been removed. The vulture sits perched in his corner, eyeing leftovers and perhaps the stray diner who gets lost.
The microphones are now dead
