I didn’t become a huge Disney fan until I was an adult. My first trip to Disneyland was somewhere around my 30th birthday and I’ve gone at least once a year to Disneyland or Disney World every year since then, and I’ve just celebrated my 50th birthday. My kids are now in their mid-20′s and they’re still up for taking a trip with us to either park and as a family we’ve always had a great time. Disney is a fabulous place for fans of all ages!
So what do you get an adult Disney fan for Christmas? Well, here’s what I’d choose! A D23 Membership to Disney’s only official fan club! They’re easy to purchase as gifts, come in two levels and prices so there’s one for every budget, and it’s a gift your recipient will get to enjoy for a full year!
Silver members receive a membership card, member certificate, and the 2011 Annual Membership Gift which is a gorgeous D23 Mickey Mouse Watch with Bandleader Mickey art on the face and a black leather band (a great adult unisex design). Your gift recipient will also get an opportunity to attend special member-only events throughout the year and a chance to purchase limited-edition merchandise and collectibles, as well as enjoy promotional offers and discounts. He/she will also receive a bi-weekly D23 FanFare e-newsletter with up-to-the minute information on the parks and more (opt-out at any time).
If you have a little extra in your gift-giving budget go for the Gold! The Gold Membership offers everything the silver does but also includes the beautiful Disney twenty-three Quarterly Publication. I’ll arrive four times a year in all its glossy goodness filled with Disney’s past, present, and future shared in illustrations, stories, and stunning photographs.
Membership Kits will arrive within 3-4 weeks so order right away or print the page and wrap it as an announcement of what they’ll be receiving.
