Soooo, Disney has launched a new $75 pay-to-play online boutique called D23 which is planning an Expo in Anaheim on September 10-13, 2009. Here's the dirt:
For those not familiar with D23, here's a little bio from the website:It's the ultimate Disney fan experience, taking place in Anaheim, California from September 10-13, 2009. This can't-miss event will feature guest speakers, celebrity appearances, breathtaking exhibitions, sneak peeks, film screenings, one-of-a-kind merchandise, and so much more! Admission will be discounted for D23 members.
Of course, the one thing that the D23 community doesn't have is a discussion forum... for obvious reasons. There's not enough control in a discussion forum, and that wouldn't sit well with the pixie processors.D23 - Disney's first official community for fans - celebrates the wonder and excitement that began in 1923 when Walt Disney opened his studio in Hollywood. Through the years, Disney's stories, characters and experiences have captured the imagination of fans everywhere, and now D23 places you in the middle of the magic. Go backstage, behind closed doors, and get the inside scoop, while experiencing the nostalgia, adventure and fantasy of Disney as never before.
I have lots to say about this, but I'd like to here what other folks think. Care to share?
