The story behind THE CLUB (based on Disney’s CLUB 33) in Disney World

A small town on the coast of Florida offers tourists white-sanded beaches, blue skies, and an opportunity to vacation with the elite of society. Too bad the rich and famous include creatures of the night. How did this happen, you might ask?

While vampires inhabit every country in the world, they blend peacefully with humanity. In Oasis, Florida, the human inhabitants have no idea vampires or hybrids, which are a part vampire/ part human mix, live in their midst. 

In recent years, the world’s vamp population has been threatened by a rogue group of vampires with bloodlust running through their veins. THE DEAD have infiltrated the vamps of Oasis and wrestle for control. They want to rule the world.

Linda, her best friend, Shana, and their group of young friends learn of THE DEAD. They join forces with the vampires and hybrids of Oasis. They travel undercover to an exclusive club in Disney World with the two hybrids, Todd and Sam, to locate THE DEAD’s base of operations. 

Why did I choose THE CLUB at Disney World for the vampires’ base? Is there such a club in Disney where its members are the elite of society?

Yes. There is. It’s called CLUB 33. Walt Disney created the club in Disneyland in the New Orleans’ section. It sits behind a door with the number 33. A door that resembles all other doors on the quaint streets. If you are lucky enough to be invited by a member, you will walk through the doorway to an elegant entranceway. The hosts will greet you and take you to one of the parlors, where you may peruse the showcases of Walt Disney’s favorite things. Maybe Mary Poppins’ umbrella or a speaking parrot sitting above a clock. The adventure continues in the dining room, where toots of steamboats provide the aura of being in New Orleans.

Once I read of CLUB 33, a club that is forbidden to me, I became obsessed with knowing more. The more I learned, the more I wanted to give it to my vampires. I used the images in my mind of CLUB 33 in Disneyland to create THE CLUB in Disney World. And wait until you see what they do to THE CLUB. You will never look at Disney World the same way again.

And guess what? I read this year CLUB 33 will open in Disney World. Too bad. I had my club first or what’s left of it.

    It sounds mysterious rather than scary so far. Thank you for the teaser, Susanne!

      Thanks for visiting my page. It’s a murder mystery. Some of the characters happen to be vampires. Some are friendly while others aren’t. I want my readers to enjoy themselves.

    What a combination! Disney World and Vampires. Sounds like an intriguing read! I live in south Florida. I’ll have to keep my eyes open, and not walk alone at night. Looking forward to reading more. Thanks for sharing, Susanne!

      You only have to worry about nighttime. But wait! Vampires are being given shots so they can walk in the sunlight. Day-walkers look no different than humans. They might be at your grocery store or your park. Watch for dark shadows.

      Thank you. I love haunted houses and things that go bump in the night. Book two has different horrors to fill your nights. And a love triangle that goes to the swamps!

      My dream would be for Disney to notice me. I would have sold enough books that the company hears of me. Unfortunately, there might not be The Club around to find me. The Dead had their say. Thanks so much for visiting.

      Did she have a good time? Did she see the clock with the bird on top that squawks? I want to go just because I can’t.

    Great time to post The Dead Game on Holloween. When I was in New Orleans, I did the vampire tour and was scared to death by it. I’ll be in Disney World in mid-November. I hope your version of THE CLUB in Disney World is not as scary.

      If you can get into the real Club 33, let me know. You need to know people and over $50,000 for membership. But you can check for dead bodies.

        I’ll be in Disney World, not Disney Land. CLUB 33 is in Disney land, correct. I do know someone who works in Disney World and we are visiting him later this month.I’ll ask him about CLUB 33 – see if he knows anything about it. I will let you know if I do.

        I’ve often thought of writing a story about a vampire who had false teeth. I was going to call it “Count Poligrip.”
