Disney fans who are members of Disney’s D23 community now have an extra incentive to spread the word about the group. D23: the Official Disney Fan Club gives Disney fans access to special events, merchandise, and other benefits when they purchase a membership to the club. But now referring their friends to the program will earn them even more rewards.
The gifts D23 members earn through the new “Refer a Fan” program depend on the number of fans they recruit. The gifts are as follows:
- Refer one (1) fan who becomes a new D23 Member, receive an exclusive collector pin created especially for the D23 Refer a Fan program
- Refer five (5) fans, receive an exclusive three-pin set featuring favorite Disney characters
- Refer 10 fans, receive a special tour of the Walt Disney Archives
- Refer 15 fans, receive a free, one-year Gold-level D23 Membership
This new referral program is open to all existing D23 members, and runs through July 31, 2012. It only applies to the purchase of new memberships (at either the Gold or Silver level), and cannot be applied to renewing an existing membership. The program began on August 9.
In addition to the new program, D23 is also offering a discount on memberships (either Gold or Silver Levels) for all Disney Vacation Club members. From now until September 30, 2010, DVC members will receive a 10% discount on new D23 memberships when they register at the D23 website with the code D23DVC.
Gold level D23 memberships are priced at $74.99, and Silver level memberships, which offer all of the D23 benefits except for a Disney twenty-three magazine subscribtion, can be purchased for $34.99. Disney fans can join D23 either online at disney.com/D23, Disneystore.com/D23, or in person at select shops in Walt Disney World and Disneyland.
