The Trophy Room

The following information and photos was obtained from an original Club 33 prospectus. To view the Trophy Room as it is currently decorated please click here.

No British men's club ever enjoyed a more masculine atmosphere than the Trophy Room. And the stories spun here are likely to be taller by far than those that fill a big game hunter's den.

The walls of the Trophy Room (the rich wood look and touch of natural finish cypress) are lined with samples of the hunter's skill. Over a period of years, friends of Walt Disney had given him a prize collection of princely value: African antelope, mountain goat, native spears, masks and plumes. And the room's most valuable decorative showpiece, a nine-foot long, solid ivory mammoth tusk.

Forty-two guests dining at pub-like, natural oak tables will find their attention drawn not only to these treasures, but to several other seemingly passive birds and animals around the room. Above the fireplace, an owl and two magpies. Nearby, a raccoon. Across the room, a leering, hungry vulture.



This is no ordinary menagerie. For when the feathers begin to fly, and the tall tales are spun back and forth across the Trophy Room, the voices may not be those of your luncheon companions alone. To the contrary: these Audio-Animatronic performers are as talented as the marvelous Macaws in the Enchanted Tiki Room, and as talkative as "mother" in the General Electric Carousel of Progress. And the wise old owl on his fireplace perch has one more extraordinary talent; for a tuppence or two, he can talk directly for you. He may even know your guests by name!


Note:
The Trophy Room has sadly changed a great deal. During the management changes of the park, many of the hunting trophies were  removed by the Disney family. The ivory mastodon tusk was removed as well. The room remains the same beyond that. Unique photos of Walt Disney now adorn the heavily paneled walls. The animatronic vulture  stills sits perched in the corner but the animatronic features were never used. Microphones can still be seen in the chandeliers, a wonderful remnant of Walt Disney's imagination. The Great Horned Owl has long been removed and several small California Quail have taken his place. Raccoons and Magpies were also taken out

It saddens me dearly to think what this room would have been like had Walt lived long enough to see it's final completion. Perhaps in time someone will step forward and help complete the dream.

Interesting fact:
If you look closely at the mastodon tusk, you'll notice two, long wooden clubs, one on each side. Those are Fijian War Clubs, a rare and very dangerous weapon of the South Sea Islanders. 

If you are a Star Wars fan, you may recognize them as Gaffi Sticks, carried by the Tusken Raiders aka Sand People (though not the original film used clubs). 
LucasFilms added a finned tube to the handle with a small spike at the end. 

From Club 33 to a galaxy far, far away,  the imaginative vision of Walt Disney seems endless.

If you are a SW fan, you may also enjoy the relatively unknown Jabba The Hutt Easter Egg sculpted at the bottom of the new Tarzan's Tree House.
