(KGTV) - A couple reportedly kicked out from Disneyland's glitzy and secretive private club, Club 33, has filed suit against the Anaheim theme park, according to the Orange County Register.

Scott and Diana Anderson, of Los Angeles, said they were banned in October after criticizing new management for problems including sexual harassment against employees and members, according to a lawsuit filed Dec. 4 in Superior Court of Orange County.

“When Scott Anderson sent an email to management regarding a member verbally attacking a terminally ill fellow Club 33 member, it was the Andersons who received a suspension letter. The atmosphere has become toxic. It’s a ‘good old boys club’ that’s out of control,” a statement by the couple’s lawyer to the paper read.

Disneyland issued a statement to the Register claiming the couple's termination arose from multiple violations of club rules.

Club 33 is well-known among Disneyland fans as the exclusive and secretive club located inside the theme park. While anyone can find the entrance to the club - behind an unmarked door in New Orleans Square - only members can access the luxury venue.

According to the Register, members shell out fees upwards of $50,000 and annual dues of $15,000 to enjoy the exclusive benefits.

"They caused a lot of damage to these people, who are lifelong Disneyphiles," the couple's attorney told the paper. "This is crushing to them."
