Anyone who knows me, knows I am a huge Disney fan. My love of Disney was cultivated early on when I was a child. I remember going to Disneyland a few times a year. It was always such a treat to be able to go. My sister and I would sit in the car and from the freeway, we would get so excited when we would see the tip of the Matterhorn. Once we saw that, we knew we would soon be at the happiest place on Earth!!
Even now, I get excited when I go to Disney whether it's DisneyLand or Disney World. It is still the most magical place on Earth to me. People always think Disney is for kids but it is for everyone. Besides the rides, we love going to Disney because it offers so much. We love attending all the shows. We love the shopping. We love the water parks. We also love the hotels because they are perfect for a romantic getaway! I consider myself a foodie, so it is always a thrill to be able to eat some gourmet meals. If you have not had the Filet Mignon with Wild Mushroom Risotto at Le Cellier Steakhouse in the Canadian section of Epcot, you are missing out on one of the most delicious meals ever.
I also think that the love of Disney goes on even as you get older. I never get tired of visiting the Disney Parks. And every time I go back, there is something new for me to enjoy! I also never tire of watching Disney movies or collecting Disney merchandise!! In fact, some of the biggest fans I know are adults!
A few months ago, I hosted a wonderful giveaway for a Disney D23 Silver Membership. And now I have another D23 Silver Membership to give away!!
You will love this prize if you are a Disney fan. It gives you the opportunity to keep up on all things Disney. It also offers some special and unique benefits that are only available as a member. Let me give you a rundown of the what you will receive:

The next D23 Expo will be held August 9 – 11, 2013 at the Anaheim Convention Center across the street from Disneyland Resort. Past Expos have featured talent like Johnny Depp, Dick Van Dyke, the cast of Marvel's The Avengers, the Muppets, Miley Cyrus, Billy Crystal, and scores of Disney Legends and luminaries..
As a Disney fan, I think this is such a great program. I love that members get the opportunity to do exclusive tours and who wouldn't love attending the D23 Expo? That is definitely on my bucket list!
I can't always visit Disney World or Disneyland but it is nice to know that as a D23 member, I can keep up with all the information and news that makes Disney so special.
What I love about the D23 Fan Club is that a membership also makes a perfect gift for any Disney Fan in your life. Last year, my friend received a membership after her husband read my write up and she was thrilled. Any "big kid" on your gift list would enjoy this membership.
So remember, if you know a Disney fan, you should really look into giving them a D23 Membership. If you are a Disney fan, get yourself something special and buy a membership for you! Who doesn't want the Gift of Disney Magic any time of the year? If you are thinking of buying or gifting a membership, I have a 10% off code for you.
