D23 – Disney’s official fan club opens doors to discounts and savings for members

We’ve heard many complaints about how D23 really only works if you’re located in or near Southern California for the best chance to participate in the events the organization holds each year. But there is another element to being a member of the unofficial fan club that can make belonging pay for itself – exclusive savings and discounts for members.

Members of D23 – the Official Disney Fan Club = can save at shopDisney, select restaurants and stores in Downtown Disney and Disney Springs, and more. Just present a D23 Membership Card or use special member-only online codes.

D23 Members can enjoy savings throughout the worlds of Disney including:

  • 15% off all purchases of $60 or more at shopDisney.com and in all Disney Store locations through March 31, 2018
  • 10% off food and nonalcoholic beverage purchases at Terralina, Paddlefish, and Wine Bar George (opening 2018) in Disney Springs and Restaurant Marrakesh in Epcot’s Morocco pavilion
  • Dining discounts in and around Disneyland Resort, including Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen, Catal Restaurant, Uva Bar, Naples, Tortilla Jo’s, and ESPN Zone
  • Discounted rates at Howard Johnson Anaheim and Anaheim Hotel located near Disneyland Resort; as well as at Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista, Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace, Wyndham Garden Lake Buena Vista, and Wyndham Lake Buena Vista, located near Walt Disney World Resort
  • Discounts on purchases from select stores in Disney Springs, including Alex and Ani, Basin, Levi’s, Volcom, Under Armour, Arribas Bros., and Sugarboo & Co.
  • 10% savings on activities at Sammy Duvall’s Watersports Centre and on merchandise at CURL by Sammy Duvall in Disney Springs
  • Sweet savings at Ghirardelli Chocolate Company online and in its two Disney Parks shops

In addition, D23 Members can take advantage of a host of ongoing and limited-time offers developed just for them, including savings on tickets to the Walt Disney Hometown Museum in Marceline, Mo., and special offers from The El Capitan Theatre, including discounted tickets to its upcoming screenings of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Lady and the Tramp.

Complete details on all D23 Member discounts and offers, as well as a full list of all the latest specials, can be found online at http://D23.com/Discounts. All offers are available to D23 Gold and Gold Family Members; D23 General Members receive access to a select number of discounts.

  1. I am one who has complained since I am in NY..events held in Calif. discounts are mostly useless for me…at Disney World I have dining plan so wouldn’t use dining discounts. The stores in Springs are overpriced….not interested. Other branches are here in NY if I ever wanted them. I see paying for D23 as being a waste if you aren’t in Calif and can go to the events. Are you listening Disney?

  2. Most of the discounts listed are AP discounts, and unless something has changed, we can’t double dip. I’m in AZ and only upgraded paying gold last year because of D23 expo in Anaheim. I have not used it since. Maybe align the discounts to be different than what we get as AP holders and/or consider other incentives for those of us who don’t live in southern California or Orlando because we can’t attend events on a regular basis. I’ve only attended one….ever.

  3. I canceled my D23 shortly after the program started because of the lack of events for Disney World. The discounts aren’t worth it when I’m already an annual passholder and DVC member. If more events were planned for Disney World then I would consider subscribing again.
