The 2020 Annual gift for each D23 Gold Member was shipped out this month, including some pretty awesome memorabilia. Typically, the Member gift is mailed out to recipients on the anniversary of their joining. A Gold Member and D23 Gold Family Member are both able to enjoy not only the quarterly magazine subscription but a box full of themed exclusive merchandise for endless Disney magic.
The 2020 D23 Member Gift
This year’s D23 Member Gift for Gold members includes items themed to the many “Fantastic Worlds” that Disney has created. An adventure bandana scarf tops the collection for opening, which displays Mickey and the declaration that “Adventure is out HERE!” (A slight variation on the UP! phrase).
D23 Gold Members will notice a full letter when they open the box, thanking them for renewing (or joining) the ultimate Disney fan club and reminding them of what their membership entails. Not only do Gold Members receive the annual gift, but quarterly magazines, routine emails with exclusive information, Disney news, access to a D23 event like Destination D or D23 Expo, movie tickets, and behind the scenes options when they apply. Recipients will also note their D23 membership card is included in this box and will be needed for access to events (keep it in a safe place!)

Next up, a set of real postcards displaying some of the worlds we visit, like Planet X (home to Groot), Paris (for the Aristocats), Cloud City (Star Wars), Treasure Island (of the titular movie), and Space Mountain (the beloved attraction). A set of six enamel trading pins displaying various locations are studded onto a card, such as Tony’s Ristorante, Asgard, Hoth, Pizza Planet, and Swiss Family Treehouse. Slap the commemorative Disneyland patch on your commuter bag or suitcase to profess your love of the Parks with your gold membership!
Here’s a closer look at the postcard fronts for 2020’s D23 gold member. They have markings on the back for addresses and notes to far away Disney friends.
Lastly, the huge D23 Fantastic Worlds map is a large piece of eye candy. Measuring somewhere around 24″x36″, the map appears to be a Pangea of Disney’s worlds created not only for animated films, but live action films throughout the Walt Disney Studio’s history as well as the incorporation of attraction-based lands. One could pore over it for hours, examining finds like Neverland, Spaceship Earth, Arendelle, The Matterhorn, and more. The high quality of the map lends itself to be framed as a keepsake and conversation piece.
