What is Disney Plus?
Hundreds of movies and shows can be found in the Disney Plus library, spanning the worlds of Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic. Any title can be viewed whenever you want via the likes of phones, tablets, smart TVs, and gaming consoles. And thanks to Disney Plus’s sole reliance on subscription fees, you won’t have to sit through commercials to watch your chosen content.
Unfortunately, Disney Plus recently announced that they’ll no longer offer a free trial. If you’re new to the service, you’ll need to sign up for the base Disney Plus plan for $8 per month or the bundle with Hulu and ESPN Plus for $14 per month. With either plan you can view both classic and contemporary series and movies; Disney+ even produces original content — like the Star Wars series The Mandalorian — that you won’t find anywhere else. (In fact, it’s thought that Disney+ will soon be the only streaming service where you can catch the vast majority of Disney-owned titles.)
The entire service is made for families. Up to 4 people can use it at any one time, and you can create 7 individual profiles with just 1 account. And if you want to watch Disney+ content offline, you can — the platform offers unlimited downloads.
How much is Disney Plus?
Disney Plus is currently $7.99 per month or $79.99 per year. With that, you get ad-free access to all of Disney’s streaming content across multiple different genres.
How do I sign up for a Disney Plus free trial?
New subscribers are unable to get a week-long free Disney Plus trial via the Disney+ website or any compatible device. All new subscribers will need to join the service with a paid subscription by signing up on your Android and iOS devices, Chromecast, Roku, smart TV, or gaming console like Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
The sign-up process is relatively straightforward. You’ll need to create an account by entering an email address and password. Payment information is required as you’ll be asked to choose between a monthly or annual Disney Plus subscription. Though there is no Disney Plus free trial, there is still plenty of awesome movies and shows to test out the service and cancel after a month if it isn’t what you like.
Should you keep Disney Plus or cancel?
Although Disney Plus offers one of the best on-demand libraries of streaming services, if you want to cancel it’s a simple process. You can quickly do this by heading to the account details section in your profile, and following the necessary steps.
Often, it’s a good idea to try multiple services before making a subscription decision. Luckily, most streaming services offers a free trial so you can test out which is best for you. If you’re looking for an enormous library of content that’s full of well-known titles and highly rated originals, head to Netflix or Amazon Prime. Both offer 30 days free. A Prime trial also includes the chance to get two-day free shipping via Amazon.
Apple TV+, meanwhile, is a great option if you’re into small and exclusive catalogs. Try it for free for a week. Don’t forget to sign up for a month-long free Hulu trial, either. It’ll give you an even better idea if the Disney Plus bundle is worth your hard-earned cash.
The final cut
Whether you’re a mega Disney fan or simply looking to please the younger members of your household, you’ll have to sign up for Disney Plus to watch Disney content. Soon, the service may be the only way to watch both old and new Disney titles. So if you like what you see, sign up, sit back, and enjoy the magic.
