This is not your kid’s fan club! This is Disney all grown up.
Love Disney? Me too.
Want to visit Disney World every year? Me too.
Can you afford to visit every year? Me either.
There are so many ways to bring Disney into our home and experience the magic without one trip to the park. I was lucky enough to grow up 10 minutes down the street from Disneyland. During the summer I would go outside at 9 pm daily to watch the fireworks.
As life would have it, I now live clear on the other side of the country and Disneyland is a beautiful memory.
Fortunately, Disney is so much more than just visiting the theme parks! There are movies, stores, city tours, shows and D23, The Official Disney Fan Club!
WHAT IS D23?
- D= Disney 23= 23 for 1923, the year Walt Disney arrived in Hollywood and the company was founded.
- The world’s only official Disney Fan Club.
- Started in 2009.
- Mascots: Chip ‘n Dale
HOW DOES MEMBERSHIP WORK?
- One year membership.
- One year subscription (4 issues) to D23 magazine. (This gets rave reviews!)

- Membership card and certificate. (Pictured above)

One of the biggest perks of being a member are the special Disney Fan events held around the country! Here in Boston, the most recent ‘Fanniversary’ took place at the Museum of Fine Arts.
