Disney+ is pretty bare-bones and user friendly for a large streaming service, probably since it’s geared toward all ages of viewers, including kids. But it does have some features you may not know about that make your viewing experience even better, like customized subtitle fonts and colors.

This customizable feature is both cool and useful because A) who doesn’t want to make their subtitles a “casual” font that looks suspiciously like Comic Sans, and B) changing the color, size and shape of the subtitles can actually make them more readable, especially for those with dyslexia or poor eyesight.
