A Surprise Holiday Card for 23 Gold Members

Today's gift is a very special holiday card that everyone can enjoy, plus a special surprise that's coming in the mail for 23 lucky D23 Gold Members!

The art above was used for the Walt Disney Company Christmas card in 1968, and features elements from across Disney: Sleeping Beauty Castle, it's a small world, and an array of beloved Disney characters.

We recreated this archival Christmas card, and with the help of some Disney Legends and luminaries, we've created a special surprise that's on the way to the mailboxes of 23 lucky D23 Gold Members.

Each card has been signed by (clockwise from top left):

  • Adam Sanderson, Head of D23
  • Don Hahn, producer of Maleficent, Beauty and the Beast, and The Lion King
  • Becky Cline, Director of the Walt Disney Archives
  • Bob Gurr, Disney Legend
  • Dan Povenmire, co-creator and executive producer of Phineas and Ferb
  • Jeff “Swampy” Marsh, co-creator and executive producer of Phineas and Ferb
  • Marty Sklar, Disney Legend
  • Mark Henn, Disney Animator
  • Dave Smith, Disney Legend

The cards are in the mail, so D23 Gold Members, watch your mailboxes in the next week, and be sure to shout out to us on Facebook or Twitter if you get one!

If you don't get a card, not to worry! We've got a downloadable version you can print at home and send to all your family and friends.

From all of us to all of you, happy holidays!
