Club 33 Phone Booth Debunked

Continuing the ongoing trend of Club 33 posts, today we take a look at the Club 33 phone booth. 

It has long been rumored that the phone booth in Club 33 was from the “Happiest Millionaire.” In fact it was at the heart of a discussion over on MiceChat.

If you said it was then you were right, and if you didn't then you are sort of right too.

What?

The Club 33 phone booth is a different size than the phone booth from the movie the “Happiest Millionaire.” Therefore most assume that it isn't the same phone booth.

Wrong!

The Club 33 phone booth was redesigned to fit Club 33 better and had certain pieces removed.  The Club 33 booth uses ” the beveled glass windows and parts of the carved wood molding” from the original. I learned this during a recent trip by the Disney Parks Blog.

Comparison of Club 33 and “Happiest Millionaire”

Here is a comparison shot of the Club 33 phone booth v. the “Happiest Millionaire” phone booth.

Make sure to take a look at the glass and the wood frames around the door which didn't change. The notable difference is the crown on the top of the door, the wood panels, and that the door opens on the left at Club 33 and on the right in the “Happiest Millionaire.”

As I imagine they say on Mythbusters, this myth is DEBUNKED!

  1. HOW DO YOU GET INVITED TO CLUB 33? I WOULD LOVE TO SURPRISE MY DAUGHTER TO GO THERE. DO YOU HAVE TO BE RICH? IS THERE A WAITING LIST? I AM PLANNING TO GO TO DISNEYLAND ON DECEMBER 20, 2013. THIS WOULD BE AN ULTIMATE CHRISTMAS PRESENT FOR BOTH OF US. WE LOVE DISNEYLAND! WE BOUGHT AN ANNUAL PASS THIS YEAR. PLEASE HELP ME IN TRYING TO GET THIS OFF OF MY BUCKET LIST & CHRISTMAS LIST 🙂

    • There is nothing that I can do to help you get into Club 33 because I am not a member. I suggest trying to ask other members for a reservation, but even that will be very hard because the Club will be closed down from January 7- Summer and the December reservations are likely jam-packed.

      I wish that I could do this for you but I am not a Club 33 member.
