BREAKING NEWS for current and future Club 33 members...Oh, and a little info on "Club 1901". Last week, members of Disney's exclusive Club 33 learned about changes to their membership plan that takes effect with the 2012 contract—and based on the reaction of a few MousePlanet readers who have written about the change, it sounds like the news was not well-received. Club 33 offers several levels of corporate and individual membership, and will add a new "Platinum" individual membership to the existing Gold and Silver levels. Just as the Silver membership was phased out several years ago, the Gold membership is now discontinued. Like the Silver members before them, existing Gold members can renew their membership at the same level or upgrade to the new Platinum membership, but no new Gold memberships will be sold. Gold members who choose to upgrade can do so without paying a higher initiation fee, but all new individual Club 33 members will join at the Platinum level. Once a Gold member upgrades, they can not revert back to the Gold membership in future years. The 2012 annual dues for Gold members are said to be $3,600, with the Platinum membership pegged at $10,000. The jump in membership fees is paired with changes to and reductions of some important member benefits. Club 33 membership acts as an annual pass, and members have previously been allowed to bring one other guest into the park with them, even if neither was dining at Club 33 that day. The +1 benefit ends in 2012 for all member levels, though there are conflicting reports as to whether the spouse of a member will still receive the admission benefit. Platinum members will now be considered to have Premier annual passports, which also gives them admission to Walt Disney World. For Platinum members, the loss of the +1 benefit is made up for by a new benefit giving the member four additional Premier annual passports for family and friends, a value of nearly $3000. Platinum members will also have access to Club 1901, a new lounge in the Carthay Circle Theater in Disney California Adventure, and can book up to five VIP guided tours per year. Gold members are still limited to Disneyland Resort admission, lose the +1 benefit, do not receive the additional annual passes, and will not have access to Club 1901. Where Club 33 members previously received free valet parking at the Grand Californian Hotel anytime they visited the resort, that benefit is now offered only when the member is dining at Club 33. For some members, the biggest change is to the guest pass policy. When a Club 33 member makes a reservation to dine at the club, they can request complimentary one-day park hopper tickets for their guests. Both Gold and Platinum members are now limited to 50 guest passes per year; corporate members receive 100 passes. Once the allocated guest passes have been used, members can purchase additional tickets at a 20 percent discount. This directly impacts members who "buy out" the entire restaurant for private events, as they will now be required to purchase admission for any guests in excess of their annual limit. Some believe that the new guest pass policy may be an effort by club managers to increase capacity at the restaurant by discouraging some of the heaviest users from making quite so many reservations. Once members reach their guest pass limit, they will perhaps think twice before making another reservation if it also means buying admission for their guest. Some may dismiss this issue as "rich people problems," but some members are definitely upset by the changes, especially considering the investment they have made to join the exclusive club. If passholders get annoyed with Disney, they can simply choose not to renew the next year—but for club members (who waited as long as 10 years to join and paid tens of thousands of dollars in initiation fees and annual dues), it's not so easy to just walk away. The official 2012 membership booklet is due to be mailed to members in the coming week, and we're waiting to see if the complaints of the members are enough to prompt club managers to reconsider the proposed changes.

if Disney has one downside it would have to be how OVER-priced everything is. Love you Disney but be careful or one day greed will be your downfall...but besides the prices everything else (rides,park itself, CMS, shows, etc) is amazing and each time I go i become a kid again....hmmm maybe the price is worth it. - HanLostLeia  1098.3 #155 6:27PM
I don't think they price everything to rip people off. They have to pay employees and the bills. There's so many factors - Starr  550.3 #350 6:32PM
I agree with Starr. CM's don't start out making a lot of money either. There are so many reasons that the prices are what they are. Just look at all the work being done to DCA, it's an estimated one billion dollar makeover. - dlmickeymouseCM  2404.5 #52 6:42PM
If the park is full capacity, how much is that in entrance fees? Even if a portion is APs, that's still a lot of money. XD - theDebsterM  138.2 #2841 7:32PM

I read on a blog somewhere that many members passes out so many guests passes to Club 33 that the value of how many passes they gave to guests exceeded the $3000 annual dues.....soooo Disney was probably losing money on the current structure of the club membership. The revenue from Club 33 helps to take care of the park so the rest of us 99% can enjoy it.  - MinnieBuccs  173.1 #2290 6:45PM
I totally get that they may feel that members are too heartily taking advantage of their benefits, but maybe they could just eliminate the 1 guest pass? That's up to 365 per member per year, though I doubt anyone does that. Many guests to club 33 do pay for their meal as it is, some of whom are already annual passholders. Certainly they could limit the # of diners per reservation, with the exception of special events. Even those of us who can't imagine getting to go to club 33 are affected because of the 50/100 rule. Someone who may have invited you may not do so now. - bluefairy  643.3 #293 3:08PM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unFORECAST for the week of August 24, 2015
Summer is over, according to the Disneyland Resort calendar. Hours have been reduced for the first time since summer began (Disneyland & DCA closes at 10pm M-TH). Most Orange County schools are back in session today, which usually points to smaller crowds. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the low 60s (approx 60% capacity) -- it even dipped into the 50s on some days. This data points to lower crowds this week. If you've been waiting for the summer madness to end, this might be your week to hit the Parks! To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin Aug 24, 2015 11:03AM
