(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."
