    The 11th annual Tour de Turtles at Disney’s Vero Beach Resort is nearly upon us! This year’s event, which will take place at the resort on July 28, will again team up our Disney’s Animals, Science & Environment Team with the Sea Turtle Conservancy to celebrate two loggerheads’ great migration and track their journey from nesting on the beach to their foraging grounds. As part of Disney’s overall commitment to sea turtle conservation, the team regularly monitors sea turtle nesting activity on several miles of beach near Disney’s Vero Beach Resort, which happens to be one of the most active sea turtle nesting areas in Florida. Today we’re happy to share that this year’s Tour de Turtles will take on a Toy Story Land theme.

    You’ve probably walked by, looked up at the iron balconies or stopped at the “33” sign on Royal Street and wondered what was in there. I know I have – Club 33 is a mystery that any Disneyland fan who has not experienced it ponders with each visit to New Orleans Square . Since new club memberships are rarely issued, I thought I’d never be able to see it for myself – that’s why I’m excited to be able to take you with me for a look inside Club 33! First, a brief history. According to Disneyland Food and Beverage General Manager Matt Gray, Walt Disney was attempting to attract new sponsors for Disneyland park while he was at the New York World’s Fair in 1964.
