Well, I'm finally an official D23 Member after putting if off for long enough. I've been watching the Special Events that they've been putting on from afar and they all look amazing (I even got to attend on as a guest, the "Up all night" screening).
I noticed quite a bit of discussion about the limited availability of the tix to these events, and the difficulty many have had getting any at all (and noticed some members who have been lucky enough to attend almost all). In the discussion threads for the various events, the topic of limiting availability to events has been discussed, but it seems that they haven't done it yet?
I was looking around the D23 website for really the first time at any length, and I came across this "fine print" disclaimer at the bottom of the Studios and Archives Tour description page:
ONE event per year?! Is this a new policy?? I haven't seen it discussed here yet... if it isn't a new policy, they sure aren't very good at enforcing it! I've seen many posts by members who have attended multiple events!Available only to D23 Members in good standing. Members may reserve a ticket for themselves and one (1) guest. Members may only attend one event per calendar year. There are a limited number of tickets available. D23 Members will be required to provide their membership number when reserving tickets. Tickets may be picked up only with a valid photo ID and the Member's D23 membership card. D23 Members who do not bring their membership card, may not be admitted to the event. All D23 Special Events are subject to change without notice.
I kind of agree that limiting the attendance per member is a good idea... but only ONE seems a bit harsh! It is now apparent that the prime reason to become a D23 member are the Special Events... but limiting it to one per year significantly cuts down on the value of the membership IMHO.
What's the real deal on this??
 I just noticed Kevin Yee's older thread on this topic... but it looks like it was just speculation... ? Why would they have this printed rule and not enforce it?
