As we look ahead to a great bit beautiful tomorrow with the start of the new year, D23 (Disney’s official fan club) is showcasing what the new member gift will be for all Gold and Gold Duo Members who renew or become members in 2021. The theme for this year’s gift box is 50 Most Magical Years of the Walt Disney World Resort!
This vibrant collection, created exclusively for D23 Gold Members, was inspired by a half century of the Vacation Kingdom of the World and includes a classic vintage-inspired lunchbox, a stunning custom-designed set of five retro pins, a colorful D23 pennant, a vinyl record featuring music from the parks, and a commemorative newspaper.
Included in the 2021 Gold Member Gift:
D23 Vacation Kingdom Lunchbox
Taking inspiration from a fabulous 1973 fan favorite, this lunchbox designed by Kevin Kidney and Jody Daily—features Mickey, Donald, Chip and Dale, icons from all four Walt Disney World theme parks, a magical musical band led by Figment himself, and vignettes of scenes from Typhoon Lagoon to Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure.
“Florida’s Fab Five” Pin Set
Designed by artists Kevin Kidney and Jody Daily, these retro-style soft enamel pins feature the Orange Bird atop the classic Walt Disney World Logo, Henry the Bear from Country Bear Jamboree at the Magic Kingdom, Figment from EPCOT’s Journey into Imagination, R3-X from his “Captain Rex” years at Star Tours at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and the legendary Yeti from Expedition Everest at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
D23: The Official Disney Fan Club Pennant
Inspired by the vivid colors and designs of retro Walt Disney World shopping bags, this full-sized D23 pennant, designed by artist and the Official Voice of Mickey Mouse, Bret Iwan, allows you to show off your membership to The Official Disney Fan Club at home or wherever you go!
Walt Disney World: Then and Now Vinyl Record
In partnership with Walt Disney Records, D23 is proud to present a mini-version of the ultimate theme park souvenir: the theme park soundtrack album. Pressed on cheerful transparent red vinyl, this exclusive 7” disc features the 1971 classic, “Bear Band Serenade” from Country Bear Jamboree on one side, and a modern classic, “Nothing Can Stop Us Now” from Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway on the other—on vinyl for the first time!
Walt Disney World News: 2021 Edition
On top of all of those incredible pieces, the Collector Set features a 2021 tribute to an original publication, the Walt Disney World News, filled with articles curated to commemorate this milestone. Inside, you’ll find a welcome letter from head of D23 Michael Vargo, a retrospective on the origins of Walt Disney’s “Florida Project,” and a tribute to “50 Favorite Things” found at Walt Disney World—written by the staff of D23 and the Walt Disney Archives to inspire adventures of your own.
