D23

D23: The Official Disney Fan Club is the official fan club for The Walt Disney Company. Founded in 2009, the organization is known mainly for its biennial exposition event, known as the D23 Expo. The name D23 refers to D for Disney and 23 for 1923โ€”the year Walt Disney founded the company.

D23 has released member exclusive merchandise, including pins celebrating the 40th anniversary of The Muppet Movie and the 25th anniversary of Muppet Treasure Island.

D23 also holds smaller fan events for its members throughout the year, separate from the expo, and publishes a magazine called Disney twenty-three.
