Disneyland is all about getting to have once-in-a-lifetime experiences, and people have been known to splurge every now and again to fully enjoy the Magic Kingdom and act like their favorite royal Disney family.
But how much would you pay for one of these experiences, exactly?
How about $15,000 for 12 people to dine at a super-secret, super-exclusive fine-dining spot? If so, you’ll want to book a reservation well in advance and make your way over to 21 Royal, which, according to the Robb Report, is about as exclusive as you can get.
The evening starts with special guides greeting your party at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel and Spa. They will then lead you to 21 Royal Street overlooking New Orleans Square, where a butler will take you through a gated staircase to what was going to be Walt and Lillian Disney’s private home in the park.
“Imagine hosting an extraordinary dinner party in the heart of Disneyland Park, in a private residence once envisioned by Walt and Lillian Disney as a secluded family retreat and a luxurious oasis in which to host celebrities and dignitaries,” reads the official 21 Royal website. “Some five decades later, the Disneys’ vision has come to fruition. Their original designs for this one-of-a-kind space have been faithfully and painstakingly recreated — only this time as the site of an unforgettable epicurean experience. Welcome to 21 Royal.”
Once you’re inside, you’ll start with a lavish cocktail hour, where you’ll likely learn all kinds of cool tidbits from your guides and sommelier Matt Ellingson before being treated to a custom-prepared seven-course meal with your chosen theme.
“By combining these ingredients with skillful techniques and time-honored traditions, then matching them with the perfect pairings from the extensive 21 Royal wine collection, your culinary team creates a symphony of innovative dishes that are dazzling in both flavor and appearance,” the website says.
You can then follow your once-in-a-lifetime meal with coffee and dessert on the private balcony that has an awesome view of the park and its fireworks show.
