Today, Disney started to contact customers to inform them that the Disney+ bundle with Hulu and ESPN+ will be going up to $24.99 on October 12, 2023. Your price of Disney+ will be going up on your next bill after that date. At that time all Disney+ plans will go up in price. There is no yearly option for the bundle but if you have the single Disney+ plan the good news is if you switch to yearly before that date, you can avoid this price hike for at least another year.
As with all price hikes, the new price won’t take effect until your next bill. So if you are locked in with a yearly plan, you can keep your current price until your next renewal. So if you have a service you know you want to use all year having an annual plan is a great way to lock in your price. So if you can check into switching to yearly to help avoid this price hike.
Currently, Disney+’s annual plan is $109.99 a year for the ad-free plan.
Max currently charges $149.99 a year for its ad-free plans, a savings of over 20%.
If you know you plan to use a streaming service all year, an annual plan may cost a bit upfront, but the long-term savings can really add up.
When you also consider annual plans as protection against unexpected price hikes, and you can really see why you should consider paying yearly.
