    New posters have been appearing around Disney areas that simply all black with white lettering that asks, “Are you 23?” Down at the bottom it says “March 10 - Disney” along with a web address to http://Disney.com/23

    The mysterious campaign seems set to continue being a mystery since the website gives nothing more away!

    Internet theories have suggested it's a reference to some disney history from 23 years ago which may inspire a 2009 mini celebration? who knows!

    Yes Pixar turns 23..but I dont think Big John would let Disney post anything about that without something Pixar being on there...

    Well lets stop and think about this for a moment....the posters for this started appearing at the Disney Studios in Burbank California, its in the preview section of the Disney website...March 10th is a Tuesday..its gotta be a game or a video of some sort...

    Im hoping for a new magazine honestly or something for the crazed Disney fans...since they are pushing so hard for new people to come...

    Well this one still has everyone talking

    The latest from screamscape suggests:-
    "The latest D-23 update claims that the whole initiative came forward last year when a Disney fan berated Iger over the fact that the company only caters to the casual Disney park fans and has abandoned the more dedicated intense long-term Disney fans. If the rumors hold true, people will apparently be asked to pay about $100 a year to become part of this new club which will be offered a bunch of new exclusive merchandise opportunities as well as setting up 1 or 2 fan events at the parks a year, with the first to take place in Anaheim.
    As for the origin of the number 23… we still don’t know for sure but it was also pointed out that WED officially became Walt Disney Imagineering in 1986 and the shareholders changed name of Walt Disney Productions to The Walt Disney Company in 1986 as well, making each name 23 years old. As for the March 10th date… some wonder if the details about the new club may be revealed along with the rerelease of Pinocchio on DVD and Blu-Ray on March 10th."

    Not long now...any more thoughts as to what this might be?

    I did read the other day that there is some speculation that the "23" refers to 1923. This year is recognized as the year that Walt Disney Studios came into existence.

    Should be interesting!

    I'm a bit confused about all that. Probably because I keep getting stuck at "$16 for a magazine" !!! :eek:
