BURBANK, CA – December 18, 2009 – It’s the perfect Disney gift for the holidays, one that wraps a full year of Disney discoveries into a single package – and from now until Dec. 31, a D23 Charter Membership is being offered at a special price of $64.99, giving Disney fans a final chance to become a charter-year member of D23: The Official Community for Disney Fans.

This special holiday offer is only available through the end of 2009, which ensures that brand-new members will receive an exclusive, charter-year gift.

“Charter membership will never be available again once 2009 ends, so this is a perfect holiday gift for a Disney fan,” said Steven Clark, head of D23.  “Being a Charter Member in D23 is a special designation for Disney fans who have been with us from the very beginning, and we think this is a great last-minute gift for the holidays.”

A D23 Charter Membership includes a one year subscription to the stunning quarterly publication Disney twenty-three (which has a retail cover price of $15.95 an issue); a personalized membership card and certificate; access to special merchandise; and the chance to take part in amazing Disney events and experiences available only to D23 members. In addition, D23 members receive the bi-weekly D23 FanFare e-newsletter, as well as a special gift from the Walt Disney Archives Collection—a limited edition lithograph of Mickey Mouse’s 80th anniversary portrait.
