Press Release from Disney
Burbank, Calif. (Jan 6, 2011) – D23: The Official Disney Fan Club, today announced a host of new and continuing money-saving discounts and special offers, all designed to bring fantastic opportunities to D23 Members throughout the coming year. D23 is also launching http://Disney.com/D23Offers, a URL dedicated to the most up-to-date information on all benefits and discounts.
“D23’s membership of passionate Disney fans is ever-growing, so we wanted to ensure that our members have an easy way to stay informed about the newest ways membership benefits can enhance their already amazing Disney experiences,” says Steven Clark, head of D23. “With these offers, the ways to save expand beyond discounts on events and outings, and offer added value to D23’s already outstanding benefits.”
D23 Members enjoy the quarterly Disney twenty-three magazine, which explores the incredible past, vibrant present and exciting future of Disney. Single issues of the lavishly produced, oversized Disney twenty-three retail for $15.95 each, but Gold-level D23 Members get each issue sent directly to them in special protective packaging, with surprise member gifts—including the 2011 annual gift, a striking analog watch featuring Bandleader Mickey Mouse with a black leather strap—that aren’t available anywhere else.
