    I'm a member. I signed up when it first came out. Worth it? I'm still deciding. I've received several beautifully designed magazines, a limited edition poster (which I really need to get matted and framed), a replica of a fan that people used at Disneyland when it first opened, and something else... I don't remember what. There's special D23 merchandise that you can buy, and there are gatherings and special events.

    D23 is "The Official Community for Disney Fans", or so their site says!

    I looked into it when it first came about and didn't see anything that would interest me. I'm an AP holder and a DVC member and as such I get special info, glossy publications and special offers through those avenues. Couldn't see paying for something that wasn't clearly an advantage (from my perspective, of course).

    I can understand that, Tink. I'm sure it's not for everyone - heck, after this initial year, it may not be for me! I'm not DVC, so I don't get a lot of additional info (other than what I get from my AP), so I figured I'd give it a shot. See what it had to offer.

    Donna, I'd be interested in seeing pictures of the stuff they sent you if you don't mind.

    I bought the magazine at Barnes and Nobles. It was $15 but nicely made and had lots of Walt stuff in it.

    Sure, Johnie. I'll see what I can do. The magazines I've gotten so far are nice. Oversized, glossy, full of Disney.

    Thanks Donna. I have the first one with Donald on the cover. I hadn't realized a second one was out already.

    I think the Donald issue is actually the second, not the first... The first issue has a black and white picture of a movie camera and a gentleman.

    Johnie, which one did you get ? I have the premiere issue . Had two left at the Disney Store . Mine has Walt with the camera filming in his young days . Then it was 75 years Happy Bday w/Donald Duck . I'm thinking about it b/c you get some nice pins . Saw some at the pin event . One was Classic Mic on one side Steamboat Wil on the other and D23 in the middle . Real Nice Pin ! :yes:
    I still have mine sealed in the plastic sleeve . Along with my collection of Michaell Jackson Magazines .

    I don't know if its Walt . It kind of looks like him , but may just be a director .
    I like that stuff Donna . Did it give you options to buy pins ? I need to get the Donald one . Johnie ~ I'll ask when I go up to my Disney Store , if any, by chance weren't sold .
