Wednesdays with Walt : One Last Visit to the Trophy Room

One of my favorite places in Disneyland is the beloved Trophy Room of Club 33. While I know much of the decor has changed over the years, the Trophy Room has managed to retain an unique and welcoming charm. When I have had the pleasure of visiting the Trophy Room, I have always felt like an honored guest who was being welcomed into Walt Disney's personal den. The classic masculine ambiance is truly impressive and you can feel the wealth of history around you. You are surrounded by artwork, stuffed game and hunting trophies and, of course, under the watchful eyes of the animatronic vulture who still sits perched in the corner.

Sadly the Trophy Room will soon be a thing of the past as Club 33 completes a major expansion. Getting rid of the Trophy Room will allow Club 33 to finally have their own kitchen facilities. The expansion will begin on January 6, 2014 and the Club should be closed for six months. So, this is my salute to an extraordinary place, the Trophy Room. May it forever be remembered in Disneyland history as a special place imagined by Walt Disney and enjoyed by so many for so many years.
