Part 1: “D23 - The Official Disney Fan Club”

If you have ever wondered how you can get the most up-to-date and reliable “insider” information about everything Disney, without being a Cast Member, D23 is the choice for you!

D23 is the official Disney fan club for the “fan in all of us”.  In its seventh year of existence, D23 membership has grown exponentially, and has evolved.  Membership is now offered in free and pay form: General and Gold Membership, respectively.  Both provide you with exclusive merchandise, articles, web content, history, discounts, behind-the-scenes info, as well as entry into THE “DIS-NERD” event of the year - The D23 EXPO at the Anaheim Convention Center!  (copyright


As a D23 Member myself, I have enjoyed many perks: articles on current events and Disney history from the archives, one-of-a-kind merchandise and keepsakes, member card and certificate, and early registration with hotel discounts for the D23 EXPO in 2015!  Parts 2 - 4 of this series will cover other events in my travels to, and during, the       EXPO itself….Stay Tuned!

With a trip to WDW in the spring, I will be sure to bring along my D23 Member Card to enjoy perks as well!  This is what you can expect to enjoy as a member too by following this link to the Member’s Only Discounts and Offers - they change monthly, so it’s always something new!  As a former WDW Cast Member myself, all that D23 has to offer is welcomed to have once again!

As my family travels to the D23 EXPO in the fall - we expect it to be like ComicCon...but for everything Disney!  We cannot wait to “Cosplay” to participate in the D23 EXPO Masquerade, sit in on panel discussions, and view exciting new content for upcoming Disney / Pixar / Marvel / ABC / ESPN happenings!

Want to join D23 and get in on the magic?  Simply follow this link to do so!  D23 Membership  and/or follow this blog documenting my journey to the 2015 D23 EXPO!
