Levels of membership

Your level of D23 membership affects what special offers you will have access to. Below are the levels of D23 membership.

General: Complimentary

Anyone can sign up for a General D23 Membership and still have access to sign up for General D23 events, such as D23 Expo. A general D23 Member receives a subscription to the D23 “Fanfare” e-newsletter, access to exclusive news and stories on the D23 website, and has the ability to purchase tickets to the D23 Expo. For individuals who love Disney but aren’t sure if a D23 Membership is right for them, the complimentary General Membership is a great option.

Gold: $99.99/year

Gold Membership is the next tier up, and the price difference is quite a large jump. But this mid-tier D23 Membership will grant you access to special events, such as exclusive film screenings like “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” and holiday parties at Walt Disney Studios.

According to the D23 website, all of the following (and even more) is included when you become a Gold Member:

  • “Disney twenty-three” Quarterly Publication: A one-year subscription (four issues) exclusively for D23 Gold Members to D23’s exquisite collectible magazine, filled with stunning photography, dazzling illustrations, and the ultimate Disney insider perspective. It’s your all-access pass to discovering the magic of Disney’s past, present, and future!
  • Membership Card and Certificate: Your membership card and personalized, suitable-for-framing member certificate features Mickey Mouse.
  • Our 2019 Gold Member Gift: 10th anniversary with a pin set commemorating Disney milestones. From “The Skeleton Dance” to “Up,” each pin in the collection marks 10 Disney anniversaries in 2019.
  • Special promotional offers and discounts throughout the year: members can save hundreds of dollars on shopping, entertainment, and their next Disney adventure.  
  • Special Member Events: The opportunity to attend numerous D23 Member events throughout the year.    
  • Exclusive Merchandise: D23 offers its members access to exclusive merchandise and collectibles.    
  • Subscription to weekly D23 “FanFare” e-newsletter with breaking news, exclusive features and special offers. (You may opt out of receiving “FanFare” after your first e-newsletter arrives.)
  • Plus, stay connected to D23 every day at D23.com, featuring breaking Disney news, exclusive feature stories, event info, merchandise and more.

Gold Family: $129.99/year

This is the highest level of D23 Membership, though the price difference between Gold and Gold Family is much less drastic than that of Gold and General. Perhaps the most bang for your buck that you will get from a Gold Family membership is the ability to bring up to three guests to special events, whereas Gold members only get one guest. Given that, if you are a family of four, only one member of your family may want to splurge on the highest-tier membership, and then bring the other three members to events.

The D23 website lists all of the following as included when you become a Gold Family Member:

  • “Disney twenty-three” Quarterly Publication: A one-year subscription (four issues) exclusively for D23 Gold Family Members to D23’s exquisite collectible magazine, filled with stunning photography, dazzling illustrations and the ultimate Disney insider perspective. It’s your all-access pass to discovering the magic of Disney’s past, present and future!
  • Membership Card and Certificate: Your membership card and personalized, suitable-for-framing member certificate features Mickey Mouse.
  • Our 2019 Gold Member Gift: 10th anniversary with a pin set commemorating Disney milestones. From “The Skeleton Dance” to “Up,” each pin in the collection marks 10 Disney anniversaries in 2019.
