Today, D23: The Official Disney Fan Club announced its new slate of events, and there’s more magic in store for fans all around the country than ever before.
Starting with the parks, D23 will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of Disney’s Animal Kingdom with a special in-park event next April. Plus, the club will invite members to experience the new Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Pixar Pier at Disney California Adventure park. In addition, the club will bring back its signature Sip & Stroll and holiday events to Walt Disney World Resort.
As if that wasn’t enough, next November, at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, D23 will hold Destination D: Happy Birthday Mickey Mouse, a two-day party with panels, presentations, a pop-up shop from Mickey’s of Glendale, and an all-new exhibit from the Walt Disney Archives—all in honor of the 90th anniversary of the “leader of the club.”
In addition, D23 will bring back its member screenings—including “Peter Pan,” “Robin Hood,” and “Mary Poppins”—as well as Lunch with a Disney Legend to both the Burbank Studio lot and Walt Disney World Resort. Exclusive tours of the Walt Disney Studios return, and members will be able to enjoy seeing Frozen on Broadway and Aladdin in Los Angeles. And D23 will bring members to Marceline, Mo. to see Walt’s boyhood home—and one of the inspirations for Main Street, U.S.A. More events will be added throughout the year.

I am a D23 Gold Family member and I am disappointed that as events are being posted, there is such a high cost per person. This is supposed the be perks for joining the fan club. So far I have attended the Halloween Event and tour and I don’t feel they are worth what I was charged. $75 for the tour per person and $40 per person for Halloween.
I wanted to do the film screenings, which used to only cost the $5 processing fee. Now it says Peter Pan will be $35 per person! For my family of 4, it will $140 to go see Peter Pan. I am disappointed they have raised the prices so much.
So I went to the site and all I can find for ’18 is Pantages Aladdin show. Not something to sneeze at, but also doesn’t seem to be a full year’s lineup of events.
I sure hope they have more streaming video options this year.
Looking forward to these events! Especially the chance to tour Pixar, great addition!
