Platinum members of the exclusive Club 33 in New Orleans Square at Disneyland park are upset once again over changes to their membership.
Recently platinum members, the highest level of membership, received a letter informing them that their dues would increase from $11,000 to $12,000 per year, but that their benefits would decrease.
Previously, platinum members would receive four(4) VIP cards which would act as their access to Club 33, access to the 1901 lounge at Disney California Adventure, access to complimentary valet parking, plus their entrance to the Parks, including early entry.
Now, members will receive two(2) VIP cards to access Club 33 and 1901, plus four(4) standard Disneyland Premium Annual Passes.
Club 33 members are also upset about a rumored public restaurant coming to New Orleans Square, that would offer similar food as Club 33 and also be the first public restaurant in Disneyland Park to offer alcohol. Part of the restaurant may occupy one of the private Club 33 dining rooms that was closed in a recent remodel.
A current Club 33 platinum member laments that it has turned into a "money game" for Disney.
