35. Relax in 1901
If you can find someone to take you to Club 33, use that person again to get you into this exclusive lounge inside the Carthay Circle Theatre, after you've sampled treats from the restaurant downstairs. This leather-chair space, named after the year Walt Disney was born and affixed with animated cels from the studio's early days, is intended to give off an animators' club vibe -- a secret respite amid the bustle of California Adventure.
36. Spend a night in the Dream Suite
One more gotta-know-someone experience, but perhaps the ultimate, um, dream to achieve. Back when Walt was alive, he, his wife Lilly and Gone with the Wind set designer Dorothea Redmond started building a luxury pad atop Pirates of the Caribbean as a VIP space to entertain guests. For nearly two decades after Disney's death in '66, it languished uselessly, then functioned as an art gallery for two more decades, starting in '87. In 2008, the original plan was resurrected, complete with two master bedrooms -- one in Frontierland style, the other Adventureland -- a trove of special effects in each room, and a massive bathtub adorned by a giant stained-glass window. Staying here also gets you access to the balcony overlooking New Orleans Square (best seats in the house for Fantasmic!) plus a nighttime walking tour. In your jammies, if you wish.
