Bucket List Item Complete: My First Visit to Walt’s Beloved Club 33 (with pics)!

Because I am heavily crowd-averse, I would almost never be caught at Disneyland on a Saturday… during Halloween peak… during the 60th celebration time. But, I had to bend my own rules this weekend because a very, very, very special opportunity arose for my fiancee and I– a chance to dine at the very prestigious Club 33!
