Well, I guess we can move “The American Adventure’s upstairs lounge becoming Epcot’s Club 33” out of the rumor column…
The staircase and elevator to the right of the entrance to the attraction now have a doorbell and MagicBand reader installed.
The classic location at Disneyland is well-known for a similar looking console which guests use to access the club. The speaker is there so a cast member on the inside can speak with the guests coming in. The Walt Disney World version of the Club 33 logo will eventually adorn the device. Most interestingly, members will be able to use RFID ticket media to enter (such as a MagicBand) via the scanner below.
Walt Disney World plans to open a Club 33 location in each of the four theme parks, though they are yet to confirm any of those locations as of yet. The rumored locations include the Adventureland Veranda at the Magic Kingdom, the upstairs lounge at the American Adventure in Epcot (pretty much confirmed here), the former Catwalk Bar at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and a back room at Tiffins at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park. Memberships are currently being sold to Golden Oak residents only.
