The first special event, Waking Up with Sleeping Beauty, is planned for Saturday, April 18 at the AMC 24 Downtown Disney. Gold and Silver D23 members have a chance to enjoy Sleeping Beauty on the big screen with special guest, Walt Disney World Creative Designer Lon Smart.

Members attending this event will also receive a journal designed to look like the storybook from the beginning of Sleeping Beauty.

Saturday, June 6 is a double header of special events. First, D23 Gold and Silver members can enjoy the 1961 classic film The Parent Trap starring Haley Mills. The film will be shown at the AMC 24 Downtown Disney with special guest D23's Steven Vagnini.

Guests who attend the screening will receive priority admission to the second special event of the day, the Mickey's of Glendale Orlando Shopping Event. The Walt Disney Imagineering store is opening a pop-up shop just for the Gold and Silver D23 members. The location of the pop-up store has not yet been announced.

On October 3 during the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival D23 members can take part in the Sip and Stroll event. This event includes a continental breakfast, guests speakers, and a "sip and stroll" around World Showcase.

And on November 14, just in time for holiday shopping, Mickey's of Glendale will once again be setting up a pop-up store in a location to be determined. Gold and Silver members can purchase items from the store's collection.

Will you be attending any of these D23 member events? Let us know in the comments.
