Disneyland aficionados already know about the exclusivity of Club 33. But for a taste of that Disney high life, non-members can enjoy an exclusive dining experience at the park. 

While it's not cheap, it certainly fits the price tag.

Just upstairs from the park's Pirates of the Caribbean ride sits 21 Royal, sporting a name and setting fit for a Disney princess. The 19th century inspired venue is designed as if Walt Disney himself meticulously crafted the 1960s-inspired location, with gold floral accents and an Empire style feel.

The fine dining experience begins at the Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, where guests receive a VIP escort to New Orleans Square. Once inside, signature cocktails are served by 21 Royal butlers and guests are invited to the patio for a reception.

Guests are able to explore the lavish location's different rooms before a seven-course dinner.

An extravagant table awaits, where Disney says a "fascinating tale unfolds" through food and drink, with chefs leading the storytelling and dining journey tableside.

To wrap up the evening, guests head out on a private balcony overlooking the Rivers of America for dessert, and if timed on the right night, the park's night-time entertainment.

Now for the price tag. The exclusive night runs a flat fee of $15,000, coming out to $1,250 a person for a group of 12. The price includes the meal, tax, gratuity, wine pairings, and cocktails.

The experience also includes park-hopper admission tickets for each guest and valet parking at the Grand Californian Hotel & Spa.

For those interested in the luxury experience, have patience. The exclusive night requires a reservation and is only offered on a limited basis.
