D23 Celebrates Disneyland’s 65th
Firstly, I’ll be honest: I chose a tough year to become a D23 “Gold Member”; and season pass holder, for that matter, but that’s another story. Obviously, I can’t be traveling hither and yon. Flying to various and sundry stuff (if, and only if, that stuff actually happens).
Secondly, however, the saving grace of the subscription is the gorgeous quarterly magazine; that and the free stuff, of course.
And, earlier this week, D23 sold another year for this guy.
FIRST LOOK: D23 Celebrates 65 Years of the Disney Theme Park
It was 65 years ago that Disneyland first welcomed guests to enjoy a new kind of experience: the theme park. And D23: The Official Disney Fan Club is marking this milestone with an incredible celebration.
First, the fall issue of Disney twenty-three is a stand-alone, collectible issue bursting with stories about the creation, evolution, and innovation of the Disney theme park. From Walt’s first idea for “an amusement enterprise built where the parents and the children could have fun together” and a colorful gallery of beloved attraction posters to the evolution of the “Disney spectacular” and a salute to beloved “Parks Stars” created for the theme parks, the publication is jam-packed with fantastic stories.
The issue also includes a postcard set created exclusively for members featuring images from the Disney resorts around the world.
And, gawrsh, is it gorgeous.
Also, the official release added:
