I haven't found anything yet on the member website related to the free D23 membership for DVC Members.

Free D23 membership for DVC members, presumably at the D23 Silver level (or at a new, lower level), was an Internet rumor last year. It hasn't actually happened so far, and I would be surprised (but delighted) if ever does.

At this time, there's only a discount offer. Go to DVCmember.com and log in. Then go to "Perks and Discounts" / "At Home Perks"
By Popular Demand - D23 Has Extended Their Member Discount! D23, the official Disney fan club, is offering Disney Vacation Club® Members a 10 percent discount off the purchase of new Gold and Silver D23 Memberships!

It was confirmed in the Winter Disney Files Magazine sent out by DVC this past November.

I found it too on page 9 of Disney Files, Winter 2012 (with issue Gaston on the cover). The article is a full page. It's a new "exclusive" membership level for DVC (not the existing Gold or Silver level), promising a membership card and "special discounts, events, merchandise and more." There should also be access to D23 online content when it becomes gated for members only some time in 2013.

I think it's safe to say that we shouldn't expect the Disney Twenty-Three quarterly "coffee table" magazine and Walt Disney Signature pen that Gold members get, or even just the Walt Disney Signature pen that Silver members get.

The Disney Files article ends with this paragraph:

Quote:
Watch DVCMember.com in January for details for details about how to register online for this special, complimentary D23 Membership level.
It doesn't say January 1, just January. Technically, January 31 is still January. My guess is that in the scheme of all the other huge website changes Disney is making this month, the D23 registration for DVC members is a lower priority than most other functions.

thank you for all of that. With everything being packed up I couldn't even tell you which box my copy is in. There used to be something on the website about it but I can't find it anymore. 10 days til January is over, hopefully they announce on time.

D23 Complimentary Registration Tool Coming Soon!

Looking through the D23 Membership Discount page on DVC site and saw this today


D23 Complimentary Registration Tool Coming Soon!

As reported in the winter 2012 edition of Disney Files Magazine, D23 – The Official Disney Fan Club is creating a special, complimentary D23 Membership level* available to Disney Vacation Club Members.

This complimentary D23 Membership level will include access to insider Disney news, entertainment, merchandise and more.

An email later this spring will alert Disney Vacation Club Members to the launch of an online registration tool that'll allow Members to take advantage of this offer, so be sure to register your email address here on DVCMember.com if you haven't previously shared your email address with Disney Vacation Club.

To learn more about D23, visit www.D23.com.

Have no idea where I read this, as I read way too much on all these forums, but somewhere it was announced on the recent Member cruise that we were all automatically made members in Jan. but we would not receive the magazine and more details would be be forth coming by email.

But it's not automatic, and it's not happening in this month.

See post #10 (from DVC2000V) in this thread.

And now D23 just announced some Fanniversary events in various cities around the country. Tickets go on sale 2/5, so of course DVC D23 won't be sorted out by then. Fooey!

Might not be an option anyway. Note the passage quoted above doesn't say anything about the free DVC level of D23 membership including participation in their special events. Many events are sold out within minutes and D23 members have expressed frustration over difficulties booking. I don't think it would help the situation any if they added 100,000+ DVC members to the D23 ranks, and gave us all open access to the special events.

I emailed my friend that went on the Jan. Member Cruise and this is what he said they were told on the cruise.

All DVC members are now basic members of D23. If you want the Magazine you have to still purchase the upgraded membership.
