On March 10,2009, Disney fans were invited to join The Walt Disney Company's first official fan club.
D23 was created to give Disney fans unprecedented access "backstage and behind closed doors to get the inside scoop from every part of Disney, while experiencing the nostalgia, adventure and fantasy of Disney as never before." The "23" represents 1923, when Walt arrived in California and, with his brother Roy, founded what would grow to become The Walt Disney Company.
The multimedia fan club offers its paying members access to an exclusive D23 website with behind-the-scenes stories, a quarterly publication, discounts and the massive D23 Expo, along with other special events offerings. This year, D23 will visit New York City, San Franisco, Chicago, Seattle, Los Angeles, Orlando and other U.S. cities to commemorate dozens of magical Disney milestones celebrating landmark anniversaries. D23's Disney Fanniversary events will be open to the public, with special surpises just for D23 Members.
