2019 D23 Expo Updates And Gold/Gold Family Member Information (UPDATED!)

D23 has released additional Gold Member Benefit information as of 7/30 in a new video. While the first forty seconds of the new video are basically fluff there are some important updates in it. To see the new video visit:

Here are the important details you want to know:

D23 Gold Member Priority Queuing –D23 Gold Members will be able to enjoy priority queuing for select sessions at D23 Expo. D23 Gold Member Priority Queuing allows first access to limited general admission seating at Hall D23 and the D23 Expo Arena. D23 Gold Members may bring one (1) Expo Guest, and D23 Gold Family Members may bring up to three Expo Guests. Present your valid Gold Member Card at queue entry. All members of your party must be present at time of entry to the queue (no saving places in line). Priority queue capacity is limited. The priority queue will be closed one (1) hour prior to the scheduled session start time at Hall D23, 30 minutes prior to the scheduled session start time at the D23 Expo Arena, or once capacity is reached, whichever is first. Should the priority queue reach capacity, D23 Gold Members will be directed to standby queues, if available.
