How to Do Disneyland Like a VIP: Major Memory Makers!

VIP Guides & Me!

One thing about Disneyland, whenever I go there I feel like I am a VIP. All the employees have been so helpful, cheerful and sweet that it’s hard not to feel special. But it turns out, you can kick that VIP feeling up a notch.

Disneyland has a variety of ways you can splurge and make your visit to the Magic Kingdom even more magical from private clubs, exclusive tours to over-the-top hotel suites. These are, usually, once in a lifetime experiences so if you are lucky enough to do any of these, it is something you will want to capture on video for sure! These are things you will never ever want to forget.

Check out these ways to do Disneyland like a VIP right here:

  • VIP Guides 1 of 9
    VIP Guides
    The Disneyland VIP guides (dressed in their plaid vests) are an icon of convenience. They will usher you and your party through the park, customize your tour to your families needs, secure fast passes so you don't have to worry as much about long lines, and basically make your journey through Disneyland a breeze. The experienced guides are full of useful knowledge and will share trivia about the park with you. I've been lucky enough have been under the care of a VIP guide and I must say that it made all the difference in the world. But be warned, the VIP services aren't cheap (from $150 and up) and you must book a minimum of six hours. But with this extra service, you'll have more time to enjoy yourself, make memories and you'll have time to film all the festivities.
  • Napa Rose 2 of 9
    Napa Rose
    The Napa Rose is not the kind of corn dog, turkey leg type eatery that many of us think about when we think of Disneyland. It is a fine dining destination. Arts and crafts decorate this restaurant located in the Grand Californian resort and it features a California cuisine inspired menu with items such as strawberry sage barbeque duck breast and spit-roasted prime rib of pork with ranch-style black beans. Plus each week there is a chef's 4-course prix-fixe tasting menu that is offered. And seeing that the name of the place is Napa Rose, you know that their wine list is stunning.

  • Carthay Circle 3 of 9
    Carthay Circle
    The newly opened Carthay Circle Restaurant in Disneyland's California Adventure is a fine dining establishment right in the middle of the action. But once you are inside, you feel as if you have been whisked away to another place, another time, another era. The Carthay Circle Restaurant serves up a modern and innovative menu in an art deco/old Hollywood setting. The food offered includes delicious sounding dishes from halibut ceviche, strawberry-lemon roasted organic chicken salad, grilled Jamaican jerked king fish to a Colorado rack of lamb. Anyone would feel like a VIP when dining here!

  • Club 33 4 of 9
    Club 33
    The legendary Club 33 is the members only bar and restaurant in the middle of Disneyland's New Orleans Square. To be granted entry into Club 33, one must be accompanied by a member, and membership comes with a steep price! Word is it costs $25,000 to join and then $10,000 per year to maintain your membership. This is really for real VIPs or those with very deep pockets.
  • Club 1901 5 of 9
    Club 1901
    With the opening of the Carthay Circle Restaurant in Disneyland's California Adventure came the opening of another private club, Club 1901. The significance of 1901 is the birth date of the one and only Walt Disney. The club is for members of Club 33, but this way they don't have to trek back to Disneyland for their special private experience. The theme of the club is old Hollywood and it features "personal artwork and photographs of the animators from the early years of the Walt Disney Studios."

  • Adventureland Suite 6 of 9
    Adventureland Suite
    The Adventureland Suite at the Disneyland Hotel isn't just a hotel room, it's an adventure. Beautifully appointed, the suite features two bedrooms and a very large social area. The master bedroom is decorated in a world adventure theme while the second bedroom is reminiscent of a safari camp (tented ceiling and all). From the tiki gods playing drums when you ring the doorbell to the rock shower to the hidden closet (it's behind the bookcase), this room truly lives up to it's name.

    Mickey Mouse Penthouse
    For those who love, and I mean love, Mickey Mouse, there is the stunning Mickey Mouse Penthouse. This suite located in the Disneyland Hotel features hints of Micky everywhere from the recessed lighting to the artwork, to the sinks to all the Mickey Mouse inspired furniture. This top-of-the-line suite is all about fun and whimsy one that the kids would love. The look on their faces entering the rooms would be very video worthy!

  • Pirates of the Caribbean Suite 8 of 9
    Pirates of the Caribbean Suite
    The adventure begins when you ring the doorbell of the Pirates of the Caribbean suite at the Disneyland Hotel, when it belts out "Yo Ho, Yo Ho, A Pirate's Life For Me." The room is lush with nods to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise from replica of Captain Jack Sparrow's revolver (locked in a display case), sailing ship models and of course a far amount of Jolly Rodgers.

  • Big Thunder Suite 9 of 9
    Big Thunder Suite
    If the Roaring Thunder Mountain Railways is one of your favorite rides, then this is the suite for you. The 1,4000 square-foot suite has oodles of rustic charm in a luxury setting. There is wood, wood and more wood as well as a large free-standing copper tub, gold rush inspired accents, and concept art from the ride. It's an awesome homage to a classic and beloved ride.
