I agree.... I was being sarcastic about it basically being a magazine subscription with "membership card and certificate"!

I think the whole thing is crap (sorry for those of you that are charter members) ..... i am not a collector so the magazine and limited edition "stuff" for me to spend more money on is not my idea of a fan club!

I would have paid a small fee that allowed me discounts........ Kinda like the DDE (Tables in Wonderland.... whatevah) but this is just insulting IMHO!

I just don't see a reason for charging that much!
What I love about the pen is in the description. I'm thinking "Includes instruction booklet" is going to include the instructions of making sure WDW kisses you afterwards.

I thought so but I don't want to step on anyones toes hear, just in case, we are a tight little family here on the podcast board! I agree with all that you said, this is just pretty lame. Can't wait to hear what Pete and Kathy have to say, Kathy has had some pretty good mini rants.

Smile 23 club

I was up at midnight going to disney.com/23 and disney.com/d23 since that is the site they have been talking about forever. The page is blank and at midnight nothing new. I still could not find any info about the promo until I came here.

I paid $20k to join DVC and pay $1k every year in dues. So I figure I am already in the most expensive Disney Club there is and would like to see some additional benefits for DVC members instead of this.

I'm going to reserve judgement on d23 until we get more info. What would make a big difference in the value of membership is what's included in the 4 day event going on in Disneyland...if there is a lot of stuff included in that, then the $75 might be mrs than worth it...if you can Make it to DL, of course.

And supposedly, the magazine (4 issues) is more like a coffee table book than a flimsy magazine.

And also little things like the pen help justify the cost - a little - depending on what all else will actually be offered.

Generally, I think it's ok...especially if you're going to the DL event.

I feel like I did one morning almost 6 years ago at DL...when they had left a message about a "special announcement and celebration" happening before the park opened. We trotted ourselves out there at o'dark-thirty to watch them announce the Disney credit card - wah wah wah wah. DH and I looked at each other and said "don't forget to drink your Ovaltine...a lousy commercial!" What a let down this D23 thing is.

And I agree that the pen has GOT to be a joke, or a typo or something!!! At $49.95 it would be overpriced, IMHO.

Seriously? This is it??

i just don't understand how Disney is so out of touch with their core fanbase...it's not like we're in hiding or anything.

ITA that this should be something offered to AP holders or DVC members.
Or, why doesn't Disney do something like the cruiselines, where you get certain perks after so many stays on property? That's actually a pretty good idea, if i do say so myself, lol.

can't wait to hear Pete ranting about this one.

Disney obviously doesn't have a clue as to what thier most devoted fans think or what they want. Very disappointing.

If you buy the membership, you don't get to go to the conference, you get reduced price tickets, big difference.

Just another way of getting people into the parks IMHO

Typical Disney arrogance.How about a club where I have the privilege of buying exclusive reasonably priced merchandise? I can overspend on Disney crap everywhere on property. This, fellow Disney fans, is exactly what the Disney corporation thinks of you.

And an insulting discount at that, all things considering....
How much will the Expo cost?

General Admission: Adult 1-day $37 Child 1-day $27 Child 4-day $81 (4th day free) D23 Member Admission (D23 members may purchase up to four discounted tickets per membership): Adult 1-day $30 Adult 4-day $90 (4th day free) Child 1-day $22 Child 4-day $66 (4th day free)
