Disney CEO Bob Iger Claims D23 Members Will Get Early Access to Disney+. According to Buzzfeed reporter, Adam B. Vary, Bob Iger may have let it slip that Members of D23, the biggest group of hardcore Disney Fans, will be the first to get access to the highly anticipated Disney Plus (Disney+) streaming service before it launches in November 2019.
Vary posted to Twitter the claims that Bob Iger let the news slip during Disney’s Quarter Three earnings meeting with Disney shareholders and investors, but the news was really meant to go public at the 2019 D23 Expo, which is set to take place in just a few weeks (August 23-25).
Bob Iger scoops himself by announcing during the Disney Q3 earnings call that members of Disney's fan club D23 will be the first who will be able to subscribe to Disney+. This announcement likely was going to happen at the D23 expo in Anaheim later this month.
