I'm just curious what other members think now. I saw the note from the LA Times writer and that got me curious -- at the beginning, there was some grumbling about the particulars. Like the signup process, getting the member package, whether it was worth the $74, etc.
But now that six months or so have elapsed, do most of you feel the way I do? I think the $74 has been a great investment, even if I haven't gone to any of the events yet. The magazine gives me ALMOST enough to read until the next one comes, there definitely seems to be a developing sense of community even if there's no community board on the D23 site, and clearly D23 and Disney have poured alot of the money they have gotten from the memberships back into the Expo, or at least it SEEMS that way.
I am feeling like all things considered, Disney is "getting it" with the fans. There are a lot of little issues of course. I wish that they had room for EVERYONE at the events. I wish I got more than a cardboard membership card. But I've also gotten free gifts, I get into the Expo an hour earlier, I've learned things I genuinely didn't know before and I feel like I'm becoming part of a real, true community of Disney fans.
Am I wrong? Was the $74 actually a GREAT investment? Am I the only one who isn't just pleased but REALLY pleased by what D23 has become??
