You may have thought Disney fans only consisted of cute little boys in Mickey Mouse ears and beautiful little princesses decked in gowns and tiaras.
But there is a side of Disney that only those with extra deep pockets will ever get to see – and they’re some of society’s most elite.
Forget the chicken nuggets and ice cream cones, because these elite Disney members are enjoying five-course meals before being escorted to the front of every line of every ride.
Booking a Disney vacation is the highlight of any child’s year—and beyond. The way their eyes light up when they first spot Cinderella’s Castle in all its majesty is priceless.
But most parents have to save up for quite some time just to afford modest accommodations and a couple of days at a Disney resort. And let’s not forget the registration for Fastpass+ and Magic Bands that get you to your favorite rides quickly.
Any of us who have had this magical experience knows the price of admission alone is enough to make us cringe.
However, with an endless disposable income, it’s possible to make all your childhood dreams come true – and you wouldn’t believe how many people have done just that!
What do you get by becoming an elite fan?
For the right price, you can have a personal tour guide at your beck and call with ice-cold water on hand and shelter from the rain while everyone else gets soaked.
There are even VIP roads that only select clientele are allowed access through, taking you from theme park to theme park.
But getting to the front of the line is not the only perk Magic Bands hold for the rich and famous.
It also provides no holds barred access to a private concierge lounge.
But perhaps the poshest place in all of Walt Disney is Club 33.
Presidents, dignitaries, celebrities, and the like have wined and dined in this elite club above Café Orleans in New Orleans Square in Disneyland.
This legendary club is said to have a waiting list of 500-800 people, according to Disney Adulting.
Club 33 was Walt Disney’s pet project, providing a place for VIP patrons to dine in sophistication – and away from the throngs of children squealing with delight.
What does a royal experience cost?
You could end up paying thousands a day to travel like a star around one – or more – of Disney’s twelve parks.
Just to get a membership to Club 33 (assuming you make it from the waiting list) allegedly costs $30,000-$40,000!
That doesn’t include the $10,000-$20,000 in annual fees. (And you thought paying over a $100 a day for a single adult admission was bad!)
And if you want to make one very special little boy or girl super happy, consider renting out Adventureland after-hours for the modest price of $250,000!
What happens when it becomes redundant?
Disney is said to be a timeless franchise that will last through the ages—and they’re probably right.
But once you’ve experienced every theme park in the most elaborate way possible, what’s next for the super fan with all that money to blow?
Well, the sky is the limit!
Try throwing a Disney-themed bash at Golden Oak, a community of elite single-family homes – and the only AA Black Diamond Certified resort in central Florida.
Does staying a night inside the iconic Cinderella Castle seem like only a fairytale? Well, Walt Disney World occasionally runs sweepstakes that will put you up in a suite there fit for royalty.
While Disney claims you can’t book a room there for any price, Tom Cruise proved that wrong when he booked a room for his daughter, Suri.
What moments can be caught in Disney high definition?
There is nothing more romantic than placing a pair of Mickey Mouse ears on your significant other…or so a super fan might say.
Say “I do” at one of Disney’s theme parks with packages starting at $12,000 and going upwards of $124,000.
If you’re already married and didn’t get the Disney wedding of your dreams, you have the option of renewing your vows or honeymooning at one of the famous destinations.
Disney has certainly perfected the art of customer satisfaction, even luring in the wealthiest of people and exceeding all the luxurious standards they’re accustomed to!
Of course, taking a trip to any of Walt Disney’s theme parks will make more memories than can fit into one photo album as we’ve previously shared with readers.
But to see it from the vantage point of those willing to spend a few (thousands!) of extra dollars is like nothing you could ever imagine.
Hey, money talks – and it says you can buy the “happiest place on earth.”
