*CLOSED* Disney D23 Membership Makes the Perfect Holiday Gift; Plus a Giveaway!
Updated Dec. 9, 2011
*THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED*
Thank you to all who participated and it was certainly fun reading what you love about Disney.
Congrats to Ellen B. for being the randomly selected winner!
Hey there! Hi there! Ho there! I grew up in the 1970s and loved watching reruns of Annette, Cubby and the rest of the gang on the Mickey Mouse Club. I’m not sure which came first but when I was a kid, my parents took my siblings and me to Walt Disney World and I was immediately enchanted by Disney’s magic. I’m an adult now (forty-ish) and still love Disney.
Want proof? I have a cat named Mickey; for my wedding we had a Mickey and Minnie Mouse cake topper and my groom wore a Mickey Mouse vest; and I have a keen affection for Disney World’s roasted turkey legs! I’m the first to admit that although I have a few gray hairs, Disney continues to amaze me.
Holidays are HERE and if you’re stumped on what to give your favorite adult who already has just about everything, consider giving the gift of Disney magic in the form of a membership in Disney D23. C’mon, no one is EVER too old for Disney! In exchange for sharing info about Disney D23’s awesome Silver Membership, the agency Brandfluential and Disney D23 are supporting my travel habit.
What is D23? The Official Disney Fan Club Provides Exclusive Access
D23 is the “Official Community for Disney Fans.” The “D” represents Disney and “23” is the year Mr. Walt Disney moved from Kansas City to California and founded what eventually became The Walt Disney Company. D23 membership offers members a glimpse behind the Disney magic with an active community, complimentary gifts, gorgeous publication, fabulous and unique events, vibrant website, special discounts, and more.
Disney magic may have started in 1923 but it’s been evolving through the decades and into the twenty-first century. Its whimsy in the form of stories, songs and images continues to be relevant.
