Thumbs up OFFICIAL D23 Membership available for all Disney fans--Will you join too? UPDATE

You can read the newly released website here:
http://d23.disney.go.com/


Three cheers for D23!

I just purchased my D23 membership. I am so excited! To be honest, I am even a little teary-eyed from the emotion of being a "Charter Member" of this club.

The total cost of membership on DisneyShopping.go.com with sales tax was $82. Among the benefits, this price includes an official membership certificate, membership card, discounts to the Disney Expo (think, Disney Comic-Con) as well as a 1-year subscription to the quarterly magazine that "provides a stunning, inside look at the world of Disney worlds."


ARCHIVED UPDATE from 3/16/09:
A week has passed since we learned the official answer to "Are you 23?" from Disney. I just read through the posts, and I respect everyone's decision about whether or not D23 is right for you at this time. The economy around the world could certainly stand to be better before some of us will decide to pay for a new membership; some of us aren't even paying to eat out at restaurants or to opt for our cable bills anymore. I understand. Of course, we will always have the DIS.

With that said, D23 is here, and I did collect the DIS names of our D23 members from this thread. The following is an incomplete list of DISboard members who have decided to join D23 this year:

I just did it to. I don't know if it will be worth it, but I really wanted to be a Charter Member. I don't know if I will reapply next year. I bought the pin and the long sleeve shirt. I really am excited. I know I will not go to the convention, but that okay with me.

My fiance and I typically visit Orlando from Chicago, and we are annual passholders for WDW, but I am thinking about attending our Disney EXPO in Anaheim due to the special events and guests. Fingers crossed that Disney will extend a discount to at least one guest of the D23 member to the EXPO.

The "Disney twenty-three" magazine costs $15.95 per issue (for non-members), and it looks very promising. At least I don't have to stand in line to go get it today. I was a Disney Adventurers magazine subscriber from Day 1, but I (shh!) grew out of that, and I think this membership will be a more sophisticated replacement for that one.

I have joined. It's worth noting the cost to join for us in the UK is $132.94.

It was $74.99 plus $57.95. I initially thought - oh that's a lot for one magazine and a membership card, but then of course I realised that is the price of sending the magazine 4 times in total making shipping $14.49 per issue - which actually is very reasonable indeed for international shipping, so I am happy.

I am very excited now and want to log in to buy a couple of the pins but I can't get on.

I have no interest to join that, especially at that price. I don't think it's worth it.

I will probably join since I look at it as a magazine subscription with a few perks.

I was in the Disney Store today and the magazine was on sale for $15.99, so you do not need to be a member to get it.

I think I'm going to have to wait to see what the magazine is like. If the magazine is really amazing with all kinds of rare, never before seen photos and behind the scenes information previously known only to the true Disney insiders, I may go for it. But if it's just rehashing of stuff that I've already seen repeatedly in the various Disney coffee table books I've owned or information even the most casual of Disney fans knows ("Did you know Mickey Mouse was originally going to be named Mortimer?"), I'll probably pass. A mystery item, membership card/certificate/what have you, and the opportunity to buy more exclusive items in the future aren't real draws for me and I doubt I'll be able to make it to the Expo.

Just joined. I figure if you divide by a quarterly amount, yes I know it is more expensive than a Good Housekeeping monthly but I know we will enjoy it!
