Great idea. When I was giving DVC some thought 18 months ago, even though I am a senior citizen, I figured, well, my 2 kids could share it. They both declined the possible opportunity because they didn’t want to pay the dues. I did not buy DVC, but if I won the lottery, that could work!
I would do a World tour of all the Disney Parks and Disney Cruises!
Start in California and take the cruise through the Panama Canal to Florida and then the Trans-Atlantic to get to Europe. The Asian parks, I guess I would have to fly…
I’ve been lucky enough to benefit from a friend’s membership of Club 33 several times.
I’d join if I won the lottery for the following very specific reason. The clubhouses provide (generally) quiet, cool oases of calm right in the middle of the parks. They’re a chance to get out of the heat and humidity and chaos and just chill out for a while. Maybe have a drink and something to eat — no ADR required, of course. And visit beautifully clean toilets with toilet paper so soft you could use it for bedding.
The clubhouses themselves are not particularly spectacular. The one at AK is fully purpose-built and only recently opened, and I haven’t been there yet, but the others are all repurposing of other rooms. They are nice, for sure. But so are lots of public access places at WDW — but those tend not to be in the parks themselves.
The ticketing and VIP tour perks are nice but I honestly think you lose something if you just whizz from ride to ride without ever really having to wait.
You’ve mentioned a few times on the boards that you don’t have many close friends (or something along those lines), but you have had a friend take you to Club 33 more than almost every other Liner … so maybe it’s just that you choose your friends wisely
