D23 announces a few changes for D23 members

D23 is the official Disney fan club. Being a member of this fan club has many benefits. Especially when you live in the U.S.A.
Special member events are regularly organized, D23 Members will also enjoy discounts and offers and have access to exclusive, limited-edition merchandise and collectibles in Boutique23.
And D23 Gold Members receive a collectible magazine, filled with news, photography, articles and illustrations.

D23 members received an e-mail that there will be some changes made to D23.
According to D23, many members mentioned they'd like to bring their entire family to the D23 events. And so D23 announced that in 2015 they will add a D23 Gold Family Membership, allowing members to bring three guests to the events.

2015 will also bring special D23 Gold Member event pricing and early ticketing, as well as Gold Member-exclusive opportunities and other enhancements which will be shared in the coming months.

As D23 focusses on bringing greater value to the D23 Gold Membership experience, they will be phasing out the D23 Silver Membership. New D23 Silver Membership and renewal will no longer be available since 21. November.
Current D23 Silver Memberships will still be honored, and during renewal those members will have the opportunity to upgrade to D23 Gold, D23 Gold Family, or to become General Members.
