    DISNEY’S D23 EXPANDS MEMBER DISCOUNTS & BENEFITS FOR 2011
    Disney’s Official Fan Club Launches New URL D23: The Official Disney Fan Club
    Dedicated to Discount Updates, Details and Procedures

    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.

    The magazine, gifts and signature one-of-a-kind special events are only the start of the D23 experience. D23 has also created a host of money-saving discounts and special 2011 offers outlined below:

    Other than the ESPN Zone thing, not really much for me to be honest.

    I most likely won't be renewing this year as I haven't used my card for anything.

    I like the Mary Poppins discount!

    I wish the spa discount was good for all the spas in WDW!

    But I can't complain, I will be renewing this month.

    The discount for the D23 expo is the main benefit to me. There is little chance that I will use the other offered discounts, but I am drawn to the Mandara Spa offer.

    However, I really like the new "D23 Offers" website and will probably check it on a regular basis.

    Re: D23 Member Benefits announced for 2011

    I recently joined D23 (at the silver level) mostly for the discount on expo tickets, but as far as the others go, I seem to remember there being discounts at various shops/eateries at Downtown Disney at Disneyland (like the LEGO store etc.). Kinda bummed that those are gone, since I would've been more likely to use the discounts at those places.

    hmmm. I've never really looked at D23 membership before. It looks like it's $75 for 4 issues of a magazine and a watch. Nothing else on the list really grabs my attention. What would be nice would be a discount at a restaurant while I'm at one of the parks. Maybe they could have one restaurant per month at each park. That would almost be worth the $75.

    I'll probably pass on it as is, though.

    I only joined the first year...I was not impressed the first year and nothing has been announced that is the least interesting to me. I still have unopened magazines. I should put them on ebay.

    Not much for me.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Ditto and Ditto! I am underwhelmed and the only reason I paid for a membership this year was for the expo. I actually let mine lapse for a few months hoping someone would get the message.I am glad there is a cheaper membership this year,but I still wish they had more to offer.
