How Much Does Disney Plus Cost?

How Much Does Disney Plus Cost?

I can’t contain my excitement for the upcoming launch of Disney Plus! Disney has been teasing us with their streaming service for two whole years, and now it’s finally just around the corner. But while we eagerly wait, let’s talk about the cost. I mean, we all have to consider our budget, right?

For some, signing up for Disney’s streaming platform is a no-brainer. If you have kids, this is definitely the way to go. Netflix and YouTube can’t compete with the amazing content Disney has to offer. And let’s not forget about the die-hard fans of Star Wars and Marvel. Disney Plus will be the new home for all things Star Wars, with every film available to stream. Plus, we’ll have new shows like The Mandalorian to expand the universe. And Marvel’s Phase Four is prioritizing TV shows over movies, so that’s something to look forward to as well.

But let’s be real, most of us already have subscriptions to Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, HBO, Spotify, and who knows what else. Adding another streaming platform to the mix might seem overwhelming. So, let me break it down for you—how much will Disney Plus cost you, and how can you save some money?

Get Started By Signing Up

Before you can start streaming your favorite Disney movies on Disney Plus, you need to create an account. You can sign up for a free week trial here, or if you want even more entertainment, you can bundle Disney Plus, Hulu, and ESPN Plus here for a great price!

What Does Disney Plus Cost Per Month?

Disney’s CEO promised that their streaming service would be way cheaper than Netflix, and he delivered. Disney Plus starts at just $6.99 per month, which is a steal! Unlike Netflix and Hulu, there are no different pricing tiers. Everyone gets the same features and access to all the content for the same price.

Now, keep in mind that Disney says it “starts at” $6.99. This means that the price might go up in the future. We’ve seen this happen with Netflix, so watch out for potential price hikes. The first big show on Disney Plus, The Mandalorian, looks like it had a hefty budget. And with all the upcoming Marvel shows in 2020, we can expect the price to rise.

Is There a Family Plan Available?

Disney Plus doesn’t offer a separate family plan because they don’t need to. When you sign up for Disney Plus, you can have up to four people streaming at the same time. And you can create up to seven different profiles on one account. So, basically, the standard plan is perfect for families at no extra cost.

How Much Does It Cost to Stream in 4K?

If you have a 4K Ultra-HD TV and you’re used to Netflix’s additional charges to stream in higher quality, you’ll be happy to know that Disney Plus doesn’t make you pay extra. For just $6.99 per month, you can enjoy crystal-clear Ultra-HD versions of all their movies and shows.

Is There an Annual Subscription Plan?

Yes, there is! And it actually saves you some money. While the monthly subscription costs $6.99, if you’re willing to commit to a full year, it’ll only cost you $70. That’s about $5.84 per month, which means you save about $14 over the course of a year. Not bad, right?

What About a Free Trial?

If you’re still on the fence about Disney Plus and want to test the waters, you’re in luck. Disney offers a 7-day free trial so you can see if the service is right for you. Keep in mind that you might have to provide a credit card when you sign up.

Can I Just Sign Up and Binge All My Favorite Shows for a Month, Then Cancel?

So here’s the deal: a lot of folks have a habit of subscribing to services like Netflix for a month, going on a show marathon, and then dropping the subscription when there’s no new stuff they’re interested in. You might be wondering if you can do the same with Disney Plus. Well, the short answer is yes, but not right off the bat.

See, Netflix and Amazon have made a name for themselves by dropping entire seasons of shows all at once. But Disney is taking a page out of Hulu’s book. They release new episodes of their original content once a week. That means if you’re dying to watch The Mandalorian, you’ll have to wait a full eight weeks after the launch to catch all the episodes. Of course, nobody’s stopping you from signing up for a free trial or just one month of Disney Plus and binge-watching as much as you can before canceling, but it’s definitely more challenging.

Are There any Deals Available?

Leading up to the official launch in November, we’ve seen a few deals for longer Disney Plus subscriptions. During the annual D23 conference, people who signed up for the free service were given the chance to buy a three-year subscription for only $141 ($4 per month). Unfortunately, that offer expired on September 2nd. There was a similar deal offering three years of Disney Plus for $169.99 ($5 per month), but it ended on October 11th when this article was published.

So, even though there might not be a current deal as you read this, the good news is that Disney seems keen on giving discounts to those who are willing to pay upfront for several years of the streaming service. We expect to see more deals down the road, although we can’t promise they’ll happen before the launch.

Now, if you’re interested in subscribing to Hulu and ESPN Plus along with Disney Plus, we’ve got some great news. Normally, these three services combined would cost you around $18 per month, but Disney offers a bundle where you can get all three for just $12.99 per month and save $5. It’s like getting ESPN Plus for free! There are a few limitations with this deal, so be sure to check out our guide on how to get Hulu with Disney Plus.

Verizon Customers

If you happen to be on an unlimited plan with Verizon, you’re in luck. Starting from the launch day, you can get your first year of Disney Plus for free through your Verizon account. Just head over to My Verizon, accept Disney’s terms and conditions, activate Disney Plus, and add members through Disney’s site. Easy, right? Just remember that the email you use for your Verizon account shouldn’t already be linked to an active Disney Plus account.

So here’s the deal: Disney Plus is a steal at just $6.99 per month. It’s a no-brainer for die-hard Disney fans. It’s way cheaper than Netflix, and if you bundle it with Hulu and ESPN Plus, you’ll save a ton of cash. Are you planning on subscribing to Disney Plus, or is the price tag too high?
