Is it considered improper to ask a moderator for a source? Any of "us" posting this most certainly would be asked this question.

I agree 100%. We were previous D23 members and did not renew our membership. This is a wonderful little perk plus recognizes the link between DVC and the rest of Disney. We are Disney lovers. Claire has recognized this.

YOU GO CLAIRE!!! Pixie dust on YOU! I feel the momentum building...

It's never improper to question anything posted on the Internet.

This announcement was posted on The Hub, Disney's internal web site, for Cast Members to disseminate to guests.

This special discount applies to all D23 Memberships renewed anytime after October 1, 2012. Guests who renew their membership prior to October 1 will be eligible for this discount the next time their membership comes up for renewal.

We want to thank all of our members for being a part of the club, and we look forward to celebrating the magic of Disney together for many years to come.

Glad to hear about the discount, but it figures. I just renewed my gold membership about 2 weeks ago!!!! Wasted money again.....

Well, this will be interesting to look into. I've never been part of any sort of fan club as to me they've just always been about paying for the privilege of being allowed to pay out more.

If free I'll join and see what it is. The one thing I would be interested in are the big D23 meetings which seem to always be held out on the west coast. Being on the other side of the country, getting out to CA is not happening with kids in school.

Did they ever establish a family rate for D23?

We lost our charter membership status because I gave membership as a gift to one member of the household the first year, then switched to myself the next year to get certificates in both names. I wasn't willing to pay the full price for both of us at the same time. As I recall, there weren't different membership levels in the first year, and we would have been paying for two sets of the magazine. (LOL, if there were silver and gold levels, it just means I was that much more of a cheapskate.)

We do enjoy the magazine, so that's why we've maintaned a membership. Sounds like this deal will save us a few bucks.

So my wife is going to get me a D23 membership for my birthday. Should she wait? I'm not real clear on what exactly we're getting for free. Really all I am interested in is the magazine.

No family rate. Beginning 10/1, renewals rates are dropping. Gold goes down $10 and silver goes down $5.

The way I read it, the offer will be for a what is basically a free silver membership that does not include the magazine. There's no word on what the additional charge will be to get the gold membership that includes the quarterly D23 magazine. Hopefully those details will be in the Winter edition of the Disney Files magazine.

I'm also a charter member, but I don't think there's any big difference between "charter" and "just a guy".

Is it really worth joining D23?
At the Gold level, there are two things you get. One is the ability to attend some D23-exclusive events, and some open-to-the-public events (like the Expo) at a discount. The other is a quarterly glossy magazine. There are a few other odds and ends, but nothing to write home about. The Silver level doesn't get the magazine, IIRC.

I've never attended a D23 event. I still renew each year at Gold because the magazine is IMO well done, and covers several different areas of the company. Much of the theme park stuff is not "news" to me, but some of the other articles are quite interesting. Being a D23 member at the "regular" price costs about $15 more than just buying the magazine at your local bookstore each quarter (assuming you still have a local bookstore). But, you get it delivered plus they include some little token in each issue---for example, one issue members got a random patch from one of the original EPCOT Center pavilions. I generally just toss these in a drawer, and sometimes even pitch them, but it brings a smile to my face when they arrive.

So, ultimately it's a nice little splurge, but probably isn't "worth it" in any objective sense.

The only difference between Gold & Silver is the magazine and price. Otherwise, benefits and access to D23 events are identical.
