D23 kicked off its tenth anniversary celebration with a not-so-nice surprise for its members this morning, raising its annual membership rates for the first time since its inception in 2009.
Effective today, the price of a Gold Membership is $99.99 per year, while Gold Family memberships are $129.99 per year, up from $74.99 and $99.99 per year, respectively. Furthermore, all new memberships will now be automatically recurring every year until the member chooses to terminate their membership. Returning members who enable automatic renewal can currently receive a discounted rate of $79.99 per year for Gold Members and $109.99 per year for Gold Family members. The free option, including access to the D23 website and select complimentary member events, is still available.
D23 is boasting more events for members than ever before in 2019, including more tours of The Walt Disney Studios lot, and bringing Lunch With a Disney Legend to new cities, well as the 2019 D23 Expo in Anaheim from August 23rd-25th.
