D23 offering Disney fans 'off the map' access to Disneyland, for $250
Written by Robert Niles
Remember that $2,500 Disneyland Candlelight Processional special that got you into Walt's Main Street apartment? Well, now Disney's lopped a zero of the end of that price, offering D23 members a chance to get into the apartment, as well as other "behind the scenes" sites at Disneyland, for "just" $250.Tweet
The D23 "Disneyland Off the Map" tour event run all day on Tuesday, March 6. Tickets go on sale Feb. 9 at 10am PT (at the link above - theme park admission is not included, but required to get into the event). The event will include tours of the Main Street Apartment, as well as the Dream Suite apartment above New Orleans Square that once was the publicly accessible home of the Disney Gallery. Participants also will get a ride on the Disneyland Railroad's Lilly Belle VIP parlor car. And then, there's this:
We will be meeting at 6 p.m. for a very special dinner (and drinks) inside one of the resort’s most unique restaurants.
For some reason, Disney's not mentioning the name of the restaurant, but the only place in Disneyland where you can get a "drink" - and the only "off the map" restaurant in the park - is Club 33. If dinner at Club 33 is included, does anyone know why Disney wouldn't advertise that? And if the dinner's not at Club 33, do you think it's a bit of a bait and switch to imply that it is?
I'd love to hear you thoughts about this event, and whether or not you think I should spring for the cost and go (and take lots of pictures for publication on the site, of course).
