First 2018 Off Site Announced - D23 Mixer
« on: October 06, 2017, 04:08:10 pm »
So this is a few days old but like WOW GUYS there's already a 2018 event announced.

All the details are hidden to only D23 members at this time (which I am, sadly not) but apparently it'll be on Friday July 20th.

Nine and a half months to go.   ???  A baby can be conceived and born in the time between this announcement and the event itself haha.  That said, it's cool to see D23 doing something on their "off" year.  According to SDCC Unofficial they've done this before but this is the first I've heard of it.

There is nothing much more on the D23 site than the confirmation of date and that it is in San Diego. I went this year and they had sliders and tader tots (Darth Taters) and some desserts. The swag was amazing, we each received 4 die cast Star Wars Elite Series figures, a The Last Jedi poster, postcards and movie ticket.

Thanks for the details. I can't access the website that's linked from Unofficial Blog so I was curious what I might be missing.  Sounds fun!

In 2016 (which I did not attend) the swag given out was beach towels and movie posters. They had posted pictures on the D23 site and Facebook.  The theme was Marvel.  Wondering what next year will be.

Marvel would be good again since Infinity Wars 2 (or whatever they call it now) and Captain Marvel are coming out soon after the con.  Seems like an off year for Star Wars, though maybe that's a possibility.

Of all the years I've gone to SDCC, I'm surprised I never knew about this. I'm a D23 member and annual passholder and this totally slipped my radar. Thanks for posting this!

Probably a stupid question, but D23 members they mean the paying ones, right? Not the free members that get just emails and whatnot?

Is the D23 membership worth the money? My wife and I are recent Disney people (fell in love with Disney World last year), and it's the first I'm hearing about this membership.

I have had the free membership since 2013 but finally decided to get the family one as I was planning to go to D23 before SDCC but it didn't work out. As I am in Canada the cost was a bit crazy to get this as the shipping is $50, you get a quarterly magazine and a welcome gift which is reprints of Disney drawings, old invitations etc. The final cost Canadian was $212, for US it is much cheaper. I think if you are in California or Florida there are may events you can attend. The 2018 events are in the link, you just need a free membership to view them. I am hoping to get to one more event before my membership expires but I am not sure I will be able to travel to the US again before April. I may get it again hoping I am able to go to the mixer in 2018.

On their site I believe they have an 'unboxing' of the welcome gift.
