D23 is introducing the new Gold Membership Duo Plan next year which will provide additional benefits of a D23 Gold Membership with the opportunity to add a second D23 Gold Member for the current price of a D23 Gold Family Membership! That’s one plan, two Gold Memberships, for $129.99!
Current D23 Gold Family Members will have the opportunity to transition at no additional cost to the D23 Gold Membership Duo Plan through the remainder of their current Gold Family Membership term, and automatically renew (for fans in the US) to the Gold Duo Plan annually thereafter.
Current D23 Gold Members also can upgrade for an additional fee to the Gold Duo Plan starting in January 2021.
- TWO personalized Gold Member Cards and Gold Member Certificates**
- Access for TWO D23 Gold Members to virtual and in-person events, plus the ability for each Gold Member to bring Guest(s) to select events
- Access for TWO D23 Gold Members to special D23 Gold offers, including early access, discounts, and exclusive merchandise opportunities
- ONE 2021 Gold Member Collector Set, which will be sent to the primary member
- ONE annual subscription (four issues) to Disney twenty-three publication, which will be sent to the primary member
** D23 Gold Family Members who transition to D23 Gold Duo and current Gold Members who upgrade to Gold Duo will not receive a physical card or certificate for the affiliate member until they renew in 2021.

But Wait, There’s More!
Disney has provided a few FAQs for common questions members might have.
Will I still be able to purchase or renew a D23 Gold Family Membership?
Gold Family Memberships can be purchased or renewed through December 31, 2020. As of January 1, 2021, Gold Family Memberships will no longer be available for purchase or renewal, but existing Gold Family Memberships will be honored through the expiration of each member’s annual term.
How do I transition my D23 Gold Family Membership to the D23 Gold Duo Plan?
In early January 2021, an email will be sent to all existing D23 Gold Family Members with instructions on how to transition to the D23 Gold Duo plan. Note: D23 Gold Family Members who transition to D23 Gold Duo and current Gold Members who upgrade to Gold Duo will not receive a physical card or certificate for the affiliate member until they renew in 2021. Affiliate D23 Gold Members will receive an email with their member number and benefits upon registration.
For the Gold Duo Plan, what is the difference between primary and affiliate members?
The initial subscriber and purchaser of the Gold Duo plan will be designated as the primary member, and the additional secondary membership will be designated as the affiliate member. The primary member is responsible for the annual membership payment and receives the Gold Member Collector Set and four quarterly publications. The primary member determines the identity of the affiliate member and is responsible for providing the affiliate member with his or her D23 Gold Membership information to activate the membership. The affiliate’s D23 Gold Membership will terminate at the end of the annual Gold Duo Plan term, and the primary member will be responsible for either renewing or changing the identity of the affiliate member in connection with each renewal of the annual membership.
Gold Family Membership allowed me to bring guests to select D23 events. Will the new Gold Duo plan allow me to bring guests?
While we will continue to bring you events virtually, upon the return of in-person events, both D23 Gold Duo Plan members will be able to attend separately (or together) and each can bring guest(s) to select D23 events to join in the fun!
I am an affiliate member on a Gold Duo Plan. Can I purchase a second Gold Member Collector Set or the Disney twenty-three publication?
The Gold Member Collector Set and Disney twenty-three publication cannot be purchased separately.
I am a D23 Gold Charter Member. Can I become the affiliate member on a D23 Gold Membership Duo Plan and keep my Charter Member status?
No. In order to maintain your D23 Charter Membership status, you must be an individual D23 Gold Member or the primary member on the D23 Gold Membership Duo Plan.
