33 Archives - Uncle Walt's Insider

33 (give or take twenty) little-known facts about Club 33!

Our little-known facts series continues, in spite of underwhelming demand! We recently had an Actual ReaderTM [Ed.: We keep forgetting we have those] write to our Step-planDisney (Step)Mom's Panel, asking about how to get in to dine at Club 33. We, of course, were able to help her immensely (mainly by lowering her expectations). In the process, we revealed that each and every one of us on the Uncle Walt's Insider staff has dined at Club 33, which, as you can imagine, ... Read more
