D23, The Official Disney Fan Club
D23, The Official Disney Fan Club. The name “D23” pays homage to the exciting journey that began in 1923 when Walt Disney opened his fledgling studio in Hollywood. D23 is the first official club for fans in Disney’s 88-year history. D23 gives its members a greater connection to the entire world of Disney by placing them in the middle of the magic through its quarterly publication Disney twenty-three; a rich website at www.D23.com; and member-exclusive discounts and special events for D23 Members throughout the year.
D23 sponsors a wide variety of events throughout the year to bring Disney fans together. Event pricing ranges from free or for a nominal cost to over a couple hundred dollars. All events require a ticket and depending on the event, some sell out very quickly.
Every two years, starting in 2009, D23 has held a huge, multi-day D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA. Fans from all over the world go there to get their Disney company “fix”.
