The Not-so-Royal Court
Once again, 21 Royal Street (aka the Royal Court) at Disneyland is open again to guests.
Rumors swirled around the forums that it was closed to either be a private event space for Club 33 or a special Club 33 annex available to regular guests like you and me willing to pay for an Andrew Sutton meal. So far, nothing has been officially announced.
When I was at the Park, it was interesting to see guests buzz in and out of the Royal Court with their cameras. I heard a few mention the closing, look around, and then leave. Very few photos were taken, and you could almost see the disappointment on people's faces at what they saw. It might be called the Royal Court, but it doesn't look very royal.
The current color scheme is a bit garish and most of the interesting decor has been removed. It looks like this space is in transition.
It is certainly no substitute for the former Court of Angels that has now been sealed off.
How it looked before the remodel, when at least sported some plants and props:
