Being a member of D23 has always had associated perks, but this year Disney is upping its game with a slew of new deals and discounts for D23 members.
OK, I’ll back up a bit. In case you don’t know what the heck I am talking about, D23 is the official Disney fan club and stands for Disney- 1923 (the year of the Disney Corp’s founding). D23 was launched back in 2009 and has an uber-popular biennial convention, most recently held last summer in California, as it’s focal point.
D23 membership is open to all fans of the Mouse and has free and premium membership tiers. Premium memberships currently cost $79.99 (individual gold membership) or $104.99 (Gold Family Membership). You can join D23 here.
