Disney Plus Streaming Service, Is It Worth The Money?

The brand new Disney Plus streaming service launched just yesterday. My social media feeds were inundated with people sharing about it and even my Smart TV knew it had launched, as a tiny message appeared in the corner of my T.V. inviting me to download the app.

Disney Plus Streaming Service, Is It Worth The Money? That’s the question in everyone’s mind today. I’ll share my thoughts below.

Disney Plus Streaming Service, Is It Worth The Money?

As a Disney lover with two little boys obsessed with Disney and Star Wars, I ended up downloaded the app yesterday, and I signed up for their streaming service.

The monthly cost is $8.99 or $89.99/year, and you get a free week on Disney when you sign up. It took me just a few seconds to download the app on my  Smart TV; I was asked to enter my e-mail, my credit card details and I was in. Super easy to set up.

Disney Plus is also available to stream on your computers, phone, both iPhone and Android, tablet, TVs and media boxes like Roku, PS4, Apple TV and more. Like many other streaming services, you can download movies and shows to watch offline later. Great when you travel with kids.

Now let’s talk about content. Right away, I was pleasantly surprised with the content available to stream. We love Disney movies and shows, and having all the classics available in one spot is magical, same with recent movies and shows.

Besides Disney classics and Disney channel shows, you can watch a selection of Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars content. Including the highly anticipated release of Star Wars: The Mandalorian, a series about what happens after the fall of the Empire. And you also get National Geographic content; we love nature and educational shows, so that’s exciting too.

Even though we already subscribe to Netflix and a couple of other streaming services, I am used to spending $5 every couple of weeks renting movies not available in those services, many of those being classic Disney movies. With Disney Plus I don’t have to rent them anymore. Also, new Disney movies won’t be going to Netflix anymore once they are out of theatres so Disney Plus will be the place to go to watch newer films. 

I decided to sign up for the year, and I personally find enough value in the subscription to say it is worth signing up. If you love Disney and Disney films and shows, and your children love Disney content, I say consider signing up. Also, if you are used to buying the Disney DVDs/Blu-rays you can save money as you can get all those films available to stream instead.

You can cancel your subscription at any time but be aware that if you sign up for the year and you cancel it right away, you won’t get a refund,  and it will be cancelled after the current membership ends. 

Happy Disney watching. I am super excited to watch Disney Christmas classics with the boys. Have you signed up? Are you considering it?

    It looks good and the price is quite reasonable!

    Exciting! We love Disney movies, so am seriously considering this.

    My kids are so excited for this service to start up. From Star Wars to the classic Disney films, we would definitely find a lot of shows to watch. You have convinced me to sign up right away!

    We signed up as well, but I’m planning on cancelling. There’s no Malcolm in the Middle.

  9. kathy downey — November 14, 2019 @ 8:38 am (#)

    Honestly we need this in our home !!

  10. louise — November 14, 2019 @ 9:41 am (#)

    We will have to look into this

  11. Stephanie LaPlante — November 14, 2019 @ 9:51 am (#)

    We got this the day it came out. So far I’m pretty happy with the selection, but I would like to see more adult content. I’m most excited about the Marvel series.

    So I am hesitant at this moment to get it but once our cable is done on January 1st I will be getting it for sure. I hope the kids like it enough to make it worth it

    This would be something that my grandkids would love, cheaper than going to watch these movies at the cinema too. Personally I’d enjoy the National Geographic content the most I believe.

    This would have been great when my daughter was 2. Now that she is 26 we’ve decided to keep it for 1 month after the free trial.
    Doesn’t work on her Chromebook at all.

    My grown daughter is so happy about this, more then my granddaughter lol

  16. Jennifer Wilson — November 16, 2019 @ 2:26 pm (#)

    I don’t think I will sign up, I really don’t want to add more to my monthly entertainment bill.

  17. Ashley J — November 17, 2019 @ 12:41 pm (#)

    We just got this too! 🙂 Last night, I watched the new Dumbo and cried like a baby lol. Also watched the new Lady & the Tramp. I didn’t know they remade that one. Both were amazing! 😀
    I don’t know if it was my system or connection, but sometimes the movie would stop and go back 10 seconds. That was annoying 😛

  18. Jenn e — November 18, 2019 @ 3:37 pm (#)

    I am definitely thinking about it. The Disney Christmas classics might be the selling point for me because I love the nostalgia. Of course the family would enjoy them too!

  19. Lauren Crowley-Camilleri — November 19, 2019 @ 11:29 am (#)

    Thanks for the review! My family is a big Disney family — so they are thrilled with the new Disney streaming platform.

  20. Jenny B — November 20, 2019 @ 8:52 pm (#)

    It sounds like an awesome streaming service for the family! I love the selection of shows and movies… think of all the movie marathons the family can enjoy!

  21. Janet Meisner — November 21, 2019 @ 6:16 am (#)

    There are so many services and I will wait a bit and then choose, but I love their selection.

  22. Lilly Kavanagh — November 21, 2019 @ 1:21 pm (#)

    I really like it but our sons are too young to be into watching the movies. For now I think we will be fine with cable, Netflix and amazon prime. Someone really needs to just bundle them all together lol.

  23. Carole D — November 21, 2019 @ 7:40 pm (#)

    So many streaming service to choose from! We still have cable as I like my TV shows, I have Netflix and Amazon prime! So will not be subscribing.

  24. Kimberley Piccioni — November 25, 2019 @ 3:58 pm (#)

    Thank you for the information.

  28. Elizabeth Matthiesen — December 3, 2019 @ 4:31 pm (#)

    This isn’t for me, I’m quite happy with Netflix, I don’t think that I’ll ever manage to see all I want to on that. 🙂

  29. Jessica cyr — December 4, 2019 @ 5:57 am (#)

    I like all the selection that it offers. And the National Geographic is a big plus for us as well.
