Islamic calligraphy dominates the edges surrounding the dome and main prayer hall, while the interior architecture exhibits ethnic Malay design elements. Sunlight filtering through the blue stained glass of the mosque renders a bluish ambience to its interior, evoking a sense of peace and serenity.

more 3's the merrier! So here's the deal. Come to Club 33 if you like Disney. I think of Club 33 as a magical Disney experience with food on the side as a bonus. If you don't like Disney and end up coming here then imagine an overpriced meal with a NON magical experience. FOOD (4*) Buffet - Shrimp, crab claws and lobster. Meat platter, soup, pasta station. There was a bunch of other stuff like salad but I didn't touch that. I only tried a small sample of my friends pasta but it was pretty good. You get to choose what you want and the pasta chef cooks it up right in front of you. Entree - I got the steak. I asked for medium rare and that's exactly what I got. If anything, the steak leaned more toward the rarer side than medium. So maybe they saw the previous comments from people and improved their steak cooking. I also tried some of my friend's halibut. The fish was on the drier side. DRINK (4.5*) *So you can buy alcoholic drinks here. I guess that's cool. I don't really see this being that big of a deal though unless you are an alcoholic and you just need to get your fix. When you come here on Sunday, you get champagne or cider during lunch. It's "complementary" but I also believe that your meal cost a little more than any other day of the week. ($95 vs. $80 i think) I ordered a mojito. Not bad. SERVICE (5*) The service at Disney is generally very good. Service at Club 33 was pretty much on par. Several cast members helped us throughout our stay. The two we saw the most of, Angela and Vanessa, were both great. Friendly, helpful and non intrusive. AMBIANCE (5*) The bigger the Disney fan you are, the more magical your experience will be. The exclusivity of Club 33 paired with the club's beauty is enough to give even the casual Disney fan a Mickey Mouse high. It's pretty peaceful here. The noise level was pretty good. For example, we opened the balcny door next to our table and I started to feel like the outside noise from below might disturb the others inside. Mickey and Pluto made sure to visit every table there.
