In his famous Opening Day speech at Disneyland in July 1955, Walt Disney began by saying, “To all who come to this happy place, welcome. Disneyland is your land.” And though he didn’t live to see the construction and completion of the Walt Disney World Resort in Central Florida or of any of the Disney theme park resorts around the world, we tend to believe that Walt would have welcomed all who arrived at any of the theme parks across the globe that bare his name.

Disney’s fanbase is comprised of people of various ages who live in countless countries, speak different languages, celebrate various holidays and traditions, and use varying types of currency. But they have something in common–a love for the magic, wonder, and imagination of Disney.

No wonder there’s an official Disney fan club. It’s simply called D23, and it’s named for the year that Walt Disney began his company: 1923.

D23: The Ultimate Disney Fan Club

D23 began in 2009 and is largely known for its biennial exposition events, typically referred to as the D23 Expo. D23 offers Disney fans three types of memberships: general membership, which is free, individual Gold membership, which costs $99.99 per year, and the Gold Duo membership, which costs $129.99 and includes Gold membership status and perks for two fans.

Right now, however, D23 is running a limited-time, year-end promotion that saves fans 40% when they become Gold members or renew their existing Gold Membership status.

What It Means to Be Gold

D23 Gold Members enjoy special perks and event invitations throughout the year, including a subscription to Twenty-Three, the official D23 quarterly publication, invitations to in-person and virtual fan events throughout the year, exclusive discounts, and more.

This year, D23 Gold Members will receive an exclusive Mickey Mouse “Leader of the Club” Milestone statue, created only for D23 members at the Gold membership level–and in celebration of the 100th anniversary of The Walt Disney Company.

The Mickey Mouse Milestone statue was created especially for D23 Gold Members. As such, it’s exclusively available through the D23 Disney Fan Club. The “bare necessities” are as follows:

  • Fully sculpted Mickey Mouse figure on a solid base.
  • Disney100 logo on the back of Mickey’s jacket.
  • ‘’D23: The Official Disney Fan Club” text on base.
  • Statue will start shipping in Spring 2023 to D23 Gold Members who join or renew their membership on or after January 1, 2023.
  • Limit one (1) D23 Gold Member Collector Set per membership plan.

The Mickey Mouse Milestone statue is made of stainless steel, stands just over ten inches tall, and is eight inches wide.
