My wife and I attended a luncheon at Club 33 at Disneyland. It's a private club that has a secret door down an alley next to the Pirate's of the Caribbean ride. There is a door with 33 next to it. You press a button and they ask who you are. If you are on the guest list they buzz you in. Inside is an antique elevator Walt Disney bought in France and you ride that up to a second floor where they have several large rooms and serve food and booze.
Everyone was into they were in this exclusive place. A place Walt Disney used to entertain his guests at. Not everyone could come in. We went out on the balcony and looked down at all the plebs below who had no idea we were special.
In reality the food was decent but it wasn't any different than what you would get at a decent hotel. what I did like was the VIP pass that let you cut the lines at the rides. Those were nice!
But isn't that what the temple really is? A VIP club. The celestial room really isn't anything special. It's a lobby. I could sit in the lobby of a nice hotel and enjoy it. What makes the temple special is not just anyone can go in. That's what the church is selling. Exclusivity. It really does stoke people's egos and they buy into it.
