There are various origins that have been claimed for the name "Club 33". One says that Club 33 was named for Disneyland's 33 sponsors at the time, one of which was Chevron. Another is that Walt chose the name simply because he liked the way that "33" looked. And one explanation, arguably the most common, is that "33" when turned on its side bears similarity to two letter "M"s, as would stand for "Mickey Mouse". In actuality, it was simply the address assigned to the door by chance. Chevron may refer to: Chevron, a V-shaped pattern seen in military or police insigna, heraldry, flag design, and architectural frets Chevron, a series of bones on the underside of the tail of reptiles Chevron Corporation, a petrochemical company Chevron Cars, an advertising campaign of the Chevron Corporation including stylized...

When Walt Disney was working with various corporate promoters for his attractions at the 1964-1965 New York World's Fair, he noted to himself of the various "VIP Lounges" made as a novelty for the corporate elite. This gave him the idea that culminated in Club 33, originally designed for the use of Disneyland's Corporate sponsors and other industry VIPs. When the design of New Orlean's Square was planned, this special area for Corporate sponsors and VIPS was included in it. After Walt's death, Club 33 was opened up to individual members also.
