There’s a wide variety of streaming services available now. You can choose between Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, Apple TV, HBO Max, and, of course, Disney Plus. In my opinion, it’s the best option for those, who want to watch Disney or Marvel exclusives, such as WandaVision or even Loki or Cruella. This streaming service combines both old movies and new releases. Even more, during a pandemic, Disney is releasing a lot of its theatrical premiers on Disney Plus simultaneously with releasing them in cinema.
Currently, Disney Plus has around 116 million subscribers, making it one of the most popular streaming services worldwide. Moreover, it’s cheaper than its direct competitors, so in case you like Disney or its subsidiaries’ content, a subscription may be worth a shot.
How much does Disney Plus cost?
There are a lot of subscription variations, so you can choose the one you like the most. You can buy only a Disney Plus subscription, or bundle it with Hulu or ESPN+.
Here are the pricing options:
|Disney Plus subscription plan||Price|
|Disney Plus (monthly subscription)||$8/month|
|Disney Plus (annual subscription)||$80/year|
|Disney Plus, Hulu, and ESPN+ bundle||$14/month|
|Disney Plus, Hulu (ad-free), and ESPN+ bundle||$20/month|
|Disney Plus, Hulu + Live TV, and ESPN+ bundle||$73/month|
|Disney Plus, Hulu (ad-free) + Live TV, and ESPN+ bundle||$79/month|
What’s included in the Disney Plus subscription?
There are a lot of features that you get even with the most basic subscription, they include:
- Thousands of movies and series without ads. Including original content available only on Disney Plus.
- You can stream up to four devices simultaneously.
- Unlimited downloads.
- You can add up to seven profiles.
- You can use a GroupWatch feature.
Is Disney plus cheaper than other streaming services?
Yes, Disney Plus is cheaper than its direct competitors. Let’s compare prices for other streaming services (remember that Disney Plus is $8/month):
- Netflix is $9/month (the most basic plan) and $18/month for Ultra HD plan with four-devices available.
- Amazon Prime Video is $9/month.
- HBO Max is $15/month.
- Hulu is $6/month (with ads) or $12/month (without ads).
- Apple TV is $5/month.
- Peacock Premium Plus is $10/month.
- Paramount Plus is $10/month.
But don’t forget that streaming services differ by content that you can watch on them, so I don’t recommend making your choice based on price. The best way is to understand what content you need and make the right decision.
What is Disney Plus Premier Access?
You can pay an additional $30 and get access to theatrical releases that are still playing in theaters. For example, Disney made this with Cruella, Mulan, and Marvel’s Black Widow.
That’s a good way to watch desired movies during a pandemic, as you have no reason to go to the cinema anymore. So it may be worth it.
What countries are eligible for Disney Plus?
Disney Plus is now available in the US, Canada, the UK, Australia, New Zeeland, the Netherlands, Austria, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, France, India, Belgium, Sweden, Ireland, Isle of Man, Denmark, Latin America, Iceland, Finland, Norway, Singapore Portugal, Monaco, Wallis and Futuna, French West Indies, French Guiana, New Caledonia, Japan, Indonesia, Réunion, Mayotte, and Mauritius.

- Android App
- iPhone and iPad app
- Amazon Fire TV
- Apple TV
- Android TV
So in case you subscribe for Disney Plus, you can use any device you’re convenient to watch content on.
What are the options for Disney Plus bundles?
There are a good news for those, who want to save money and watch non-Disney content as well, including sports. You can bundle your subscription with more services, like Hulu and ESPN+.
The Disney Plus, Hulu, and ESPN+ bundle currently costs $14 per month and this plan really rocks, especially in case you like watching sports. In case you will get all this subscriptions separately, you will pay $20 a month, so the save is $6.
The original Disney Plus, Hulu and ESPN+ bundle goes with ad-membership, however you can pay $20 per month and still get a discount.
Moreover, there are additional bundling option and they’re really wide, I can even say they’re the most wider on the market.
Disney Plus to other streaming services compared – which streaming service you should choose?
Well, it all depends on the content you want to get. In case you enjoy Disney and its subsidiaries content, that’s quite strange to get Netflix subscription. However, if you want to get an access to a Netflix original content – there’s no reason in subscriping to Disney Plus.
So my advice is to consider content first and made decision based on what you really need.
Can you get Disney Plus for free?
Unfortanetely, as Disney Plus is experiencing a stable and rocket-launching growth, there’s no free-trial opportunity anymore. However, I’m sure it would get back once the period of rapid growth will end. So, in case you don’t really need Disney content, I suggest you to wait and maybe you will be lucky to get a free trial.
Can you gift Disney Plus?
Yeah, and gifting a Disney Plus may be a good way to make something good for your friend or family member. You can gift a Disney Plus gift card with annual subscription for $80.
