Re: Is there a current discount when buying the D23 membership?
They have just announced that membership RENEWALS will be discounted from now on (so..new pricing, it looks like). I don't see any current discounts for new memberships, but at least renewing gives you a break. From the D23 page:
D23 Members can enjoy special savings when they renew their memberships in the world’s only Official Disney Fan Club! It’s our way of saying “thank you” to the best Disney fans we know.
Starting October 1, 2012 and thereafter, D23 Gold Membership renewals will now be $64.99—a savings of $10! And D23 Silver Membership renewals will now be $29.99—a savings of $5!
This special discount applies to all D23 Memberships renewed anytime after October 1, 2012. Guests who renew their membership prior to October 1 will be eligible for this discount the next time their membership comes up for renewal.
We want to thank all of our members for being a part of the club, and we look forward to celebrating the magic of Disney together for many years to come.
Any questions regarding the new renewal pricing structure may be directed to our guest services team at GuestRelations@D23.com.
