Not yet but I have considered it. I think we have until the end of the year to join and be charter members.

D23 is a new Disney fan club, started by the Walt Disney Co. You can find more information at their website.

Haven't joined the club but I have picked up the magazine which, I think, is great. Pricey though! Kind of takes the place of the much-missed Disney Magazine that ended in 2005.

I was looking at joining this week but have a couple of quick questions. I see the D23 Magazine, quarterly issues, is one of the benefits of membership . . . but then I see you can purchase the Premier issue (membership required) and also the Summer issue is available for purchase (doesn't say membership required) so with the Premier is that so IF someone had the desire to purchase an EXTRA copy to keep minty mint and pristine OR is there another subscription that is included with the membership? The answer seems obvious but I just want to make sure. Like Kat in FL, I too would like to join a Disney club and be a charter member. I also want the frame to go with my framed Disney stock certificate and I need to get my Pixar stock certificate framed. I should have requested all 100 shares to be issued individually and could have sold those suckers on eBay but figured Vanguard and Pixar wouldn't have appreciated issuing all those certificates, thus only the one single share but I did make a handsome profit on the other 99 but I bet in years to come I could have sold those as RARE stock certificates on eBay. LOL ;\)

Deana,
I think that the answers are YES to the first and NO to the second. The magazine subscription comes with the annual membership fee. The option to buy the first two issues is to provide for persons: (1) who are joining later and missed those issues; OR (2) as you suggested who wanted to keep one copy in mint condition.

Thank you for the answer, Mike. I appreciate your time to reply. Now to whether to redeem some Disney Dollars and wait for those to arrive or hurry up and join, like tonight. I hesitated and waited for the two castle park exclusive pieces and missed the boat but expect they'll return one day.

Thanks again,

Deana

Deana,

When I joined by the time I received my stuff I ended up getting the Summer book with Donald Duck on the front and not the first issue. So I had to order the first issue. And Yes, you do have to be a D23 member to get anything from D23.

I just received my D23 silver pin but I have not received Tinker Bell, Jiminy Cricket or the Mad Hatter yet!! But I did get the lastest one of Gus in the glass slipper!! Weird!!

Thanks for the info, Kat. I better go ahead and order the first issue with my membership. I've been running with the kids all week and weekend so haven't actually joined yet.

Hope you are getting some rest tonight~!!!!

If anyone is looking for extra issues to keep mint or if you just don't want to join the club but want the magazine, like me, I know it's available at Barnes and Noble bookstores, the only non-Disney retailer to carry it, and comes in a protective plastic bag and retails for the same price as on the D23 website.

Hi Kath,
Yep, I joined and we're going to the Expo in September! It starts the day after the Haunted Mansion 40th Anniversary Special Event that we're going to, on the day before. Reading all the info on the Expo sounds like it's going to be great!!

We bought 2 of the Mansion event package that comes with a Disneyland Hotel room. There are two of us, so we had to book a room for 2 nights. Since we had a room booked for the Tuesday night before the event and the event night, my hubby's going to see if he can get them to change it to the event night and the Thursday night after, since we didn't know about the Expo, back in January, when we bought our Mansion packages.

Are you going? Is anyone else from here going to the Expo?

I just joined the other night. I signed up my sweetie as a gift membership. Like the rest who have replied, I wanted to be a charter member of "something" and this seemed right up our alley - we love all things Disney.
We won't likely make it to any of the events or convention anytime soon as we're just too far away - but we can live vicariously through the rest of you!

Too bad they don't ship free back-issues of the magazine to those who join later in a year. Some clubs do. We have no Barnes and Noble here so if we want them I guess we'll have to pay the club price plus shipping. Will wait and see how much we like the issues we do get.

I sure do miss the old newsstand Disney magazine.

Deana,
The charter members were just sent the fall issue, featuring the Haunted Mansion. The D23 member exclusive is a replica of a 1959 Disneyland patch, showing the skyway as it went through the Glacier Grotto in the Matterhorn.

Hi Sandy,
I agree! I really miss the old Disney Magazines too! I have lots of them stored in Rubbermaid boxes, in my sewing room closet.

With our Premium Annual Passes, we get 2 "FREE" subscriptions for "Family Fun", instead of DM, but we don't have kids, so there's seldom anything of interest to us in them. We pass them on, to friends who do have kids tho. The 23 Magazine is really interesting and gives you a lot of great info! I think you'll like it.

By the time we received our membership kit, we missed the first magazine, so I'm hoping to find a copy at the Expo next month, at the cover price, not inflated, because they have a bunch of hungry Disney fans wanting to buy it.

I realized that even tho they consider you a Charter Member, if you join at anytime before the expiration date, each magazine that comes out, that you DON'T receive because you haven't become a member yet, means YOUR particular Charter Membership is worth that much less, over the one who signed up right away and got all the magazines!

If I'm not able to get the first magazine at cover price, I'll order it from DisneyShopping, during one of their FREE or $5 shipping deals. If I'd realized my kit WOULDN'T have the first issue in it, I'd have ordered it at the same time as my kit!

Good news about our Disneyland Hotel ressies! My hubby called & they were able to change ours, from Tuesday/Wednesday to Wednesday/Thursday. We then picked up the other 2 nights at the nearby (walking distance to the Expo, if I wasn't in a wheelchair) Candy Cane Inn! They're a nicer step up from the usual motel, have their own shuttles and their parking is FREE!!

Want to see some of the pins going to be for sale at Expo? Look here:

Ummm by the way . . . If you have a Chase Disney Rewards VISA . . . you also get the benefit of this "free" subscription so it isn't just exclusive to PAP holders. And you need to have VERY YOUNG kids for most of the stuff to be of any interest.

I'm pretty sure after receiving the email below, the memberships run one year from the date you join and not end on 12/31/year like the Hallmark KOC memberships do.

Dear Disney Guest,

Thank you for your email.

I?m so happy to assist you today and hope the following information is
helpful to you. Currently, when a new D23 Membership is purchased our
Guests are receiving the Fall (3rd) issue of the D23 magazine. You will
then receive the next three issues of the magazine, completing your
yearly subscription. If you are interested in purchasing previous
copies of the D23 magazine, please visit the DisneyStore.com, D23 Store
for availability of archived issues.

I was pleased to assist you today and hope that you will continue to
shop with us at DisneyStore.com. Please feel free to let us know if you
have additional questions or concerns.

Wishing you a Magical Disney Day!
Tashia

The DisneyStore.com Team

If you have a Disney Rewards Visa card, did you notice the 15% coupon at the Disney Store? It is on page 10 of the Fall 2009 mailing and is good until September 13! Hopefully, it is valid at the special Disney Store at the D23 Expo. Unfortunately, it is only valid on a single purchase.

Mike, I've got most of my items in my cart but most of the time, these codes never work with the fine art, Jim Shore, WDCC etc. so I'm betting not. I've got quite a few Disney Reward Dollars that are going to start expiring in Nov. etc. etc. etc. so I requested a 100 Dollar card and will buy as soon as I get that. I didn't want to request too many since we hope to make a trip soon and that 750 will certainly help. Only one time I was able to use an extra discount, Best Guest or ??? on a framed, limited & numbered fine art print.

Did you get the frame? I'm going to get the frame to put my membership certificate in and hang along side my Disney share of stock and my Pixar share of stock certificates.

Hopefully my Reward Card will arrive soon. I should have requested it a few weeks ago because I knew I have some expiring and knew I wanted to spend some money. Procrastination plus busy with back to school.

Thanks for the info and I'll try it and let you know IF it works or not.

On QVC today, Jim Shore said that he was going to be signing at Disneyland Resort in September. His website says only that he will be at Knotts Berry Farm on September 12! \:\) Could he be coming to D23 Expo to sign his Disney ornaments?

I finally received my Rewards card today and placed my order. Used the discount code on page 10 and it applied to 4 various items, two being PARK exclusive merchandise but NOT the D23 items. I was pleasantly surprised on the two park items being eligible . . . and then the discounted shipping on the rest of the items. I'm guessing IF I had ordered the D23 membership separately, it would have been free but still would have had to pay on the other items, so it is all good.

I really miss my Best Guest discount and occasional freebies, like a nice watch complete with wooden box, crystal figurine of Belle from Aribas Bros. and a little Cindy & Prince crystal trinket box are a few that come to mind. I use to order so much more when I had that and sometimes could combine/stack with other discount codes . . . and the kids were younger then too.

That would be great if Jim Shore comes to D23.

I got to meet Jim Shore last year at a dinner and he is such a wonderful person. Very down to earth and so easy to talk to.

FYI - They will be using a voucher system to purchase pins, ornaments, etc. \:\(
I received the following email:

Thank you for your letter.

The D23 exclusive ornament will be available on Thursday in the Dream Store. It is limited to one per guests and a voucher will be given prior to opening (like the pins) for this item. The ornament is $25, it can also be signed by the Hallmark artist who will appear in Hall C Autograph area on Thursday from 12:30 ? 1:30.

I guess the voucher system means will be like the tickets we get at the KOC events to limit each person to one item each. Kind of glad to see that so some people won't hog them all. Jim Shore will be at the mansion event on 9/9 signing and I he's on the schedule to sign 9/10 at the Expo right after the Hallmark signing. Has anyone heard if there will be a special Jim Shore piece for the Expo?

Interestingly, there has been no rumors on a new Jim Shore piece and the DisneyStore.com has no new Jim Shore Disney ornaments posted.

May be he will give a hint on QVC this Tuesday. He has the TSV with shows at 12 midnight, 10 am, and 7 pm EDT.

Since this is the first year of D23, who knows what you will get in the future?

If Disney is like Hallmark, there is no difference between regular and charter members. Every few years, KOC charter members might get a free ornament, and if you go to the national KOC event, you might be able to get your registration materials early.

Disney is currently offering charter members the opportunity to BUY apparel and pins that have CHARTER YEAR or CHARTER MEMBER on them, if that appeals to you. It would be nice, if Disney gave charter members front of the line passes for all presentations and seminars at future Expos. LOL Realistically, there is simply too many charter members to do so.
