This promotional video introduce Disneyland’s Club 33, and provides interesting information about the exclusive club’s design. Situated at I guessing many readers will recognize some of the symbols found there.
The name of the club itself is very evocative of Freemasonry. 33 is indeed a sacred and symbolic number in Masonic lore. For this reason, the Scottish Rite is comprised of 32 regular degrees and an honorary 33rd degree. This exalted degree is only reserved to the most distinguished Freemasons (some say Disney was a 33rd Degree Mason) – the same way Club 33 is reserved to Disney’s “most distinguished” guests.
As if to emphasize the Masonic meaning of the number 33, this alternate logo of Club 33 uses a black and white pattern, similar to the Masonic checkerboard floor. The all-important occult concept of duality is visually represented with the inversion of the colors of each “3″.
The documentary also shows Walt Disney’s original design ideas for the club. Horned animal heads, owls and vultures gave the Club a definite non-Disney ambiance.
