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.
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?
