D23 Silver Membership – Gift Guide Pick for the Adult Disney Fan – Giveaway

var fbShare = {size: ‘small’,}

I really wasn’t a ‘big’ Disney fan until I was an adult.  As a kid my parents took us to Disney World once and I was just five and don’t remember a lot of that vacation.  But for some reason I had this idyllic sense of mind that when I got married I wanted to go to Disney World for my honeymoon.  Good thing I caught the perfect guy that had that same thought!  And that’s when my loyalty to all things Disney began. 17 years later with countless Disney trips and experiences under our belts, my home is now filled with Disney collectibles and home goods.  These treasures keep ‘the magic’ alive for me between our annual Disney getaways.

As a grown up Disney fan, I think the gift of a D23 membership would be an incredible present to receive (hint hint for those that purchase me gifts and are reading this…).  What’s D23 you ask?  It’s the only official Disney Fan Club.  The D is for ‘Disney’ of course, and the ‘23’ is for the year (1923) that Walt headed out to Hollywood and began what would become the legendary Disney Studios.

The D23 Silver Membership is certainly affordable at just $34.99 for one-year*.  With the membership the recipient will receive the following:

Membership Card and Certificate.  The membership card and personalized, suitable for-framing member certificate features Donald Duck hand drawn by Disney Legend-and the voice of Donald!-Tony Anselmo.

• 2011 Annual Membership Gift, D23 Mickey Mouse Watch:  Features charming Bandleader Mickey art and the number 2 and 3 highlighted (of course!) plus a leather band.

Special Member Events: The opportunity for the recipient to attend numerous D23 Member events throughout the year.  D23 Expo – The D23 Expo brings the entire world of Disney under one roof and is the “ultimate Disney fan event” – and D23 Members can purchase special ticket discounts and receive exclusive access to this amazing event.

Exclusive Merchandise: D23 offers its members access to exclusive, limited-edition merchandise and collectibles.

Subscription to bi-weekly D23 FanFare e-newsletter with breaking news and special offers.  (These can be opted out of if the recipient does not want to receive them)

Special promotional offers and discounts throughout the year. D23 Members can save hundreds of dollars online and by presenting their D23 Membership cards at select retailers throughout the country (details can be found at Disney.com/D23Discounts).

• Plus, stay connected to D23 every day at Disney.com/D23, featuring up-to-the-minute Disney news, feature stories, event info, merchandise and more.

The D23 Membership also comes in a Gold Level for $74.99* and includes all the benefits of the Silver Membership PLUS a Disney twenty-three Quarterly Publication: A one-year subscription (four issues) to D23”s exquisite collectible magazine, filled with stunning photography, dazzling illustrations and the ultimate Disney insider perspective. And each issue comes with a surprise collectible gift!

*D23 memberships are non-refundable and non-transferable.

If the grown up Disney Fan in your life visits the parks in California and/or Florida once or twice a year and can plan their getaways around the Special Member Events, the ability for them to be able to purchase tickets to those exclusive events is a perk of the membership.

For myself personally, I really like the idea of being able to get limited-edition merchandise with the membership.  I’m always on the look-out for unique and not mass produced items when looking for Disney décor and collectibles.

Whatever it is the adult Disney Fan you know likes best, the theme parks, collectibles, exclusive events or just the latest behind the scenes information, a D23 Membership is sure to be appreciated as a holiday gift this year!

I was invited to participate in a blog campaign for Disney D23 from Brandfluential, for which I was compensated, however my opinions are completely my own.

One reader will win a D23 Silver Membership, the value is $34.99.  I’m going to be using comments for this giveaway (Please be patient if they take a bit to load, sometimes the ads on my site cause them to load slowly). As much as I love Rafflecopter it has been down too often for my liking.
