Put simply, Disney+ is the home to all of the family-friendly content that Disney and all of its studios produce. In addition to classics like Cinderella and Bambi, you get modern favorites like Mickey’s Clubhouse and the live-action version of Lion King. But there’s even more from Star Wars to Iron Man to The Simpsons.

With a low $7 monthly subscription for the stand-alone service (and the $13 bundle with ESPN+ and Hulu), it’s no wonder that millions of people subscribed within months of the Disney+ launch.

Given the low cost of a Disney+ subscription – half that of Netflix – it’s a fair bet that lots of people will try it out for a month or two. If you decide the service isn’t for you or you want to rotate back to another service, here’s how to cancel your subscription.

Disney+ only lets you cancel your account in the same place you created it. People who signed up on the Disney+ website have to go back to the website. People who subscribed through the iOS app have to cancel their subscription through Apple’s subscription management system on their iPhone or iPad.

When you’re on the website, you’ll enter the Account section from the profile icon in the top right corner of the page.

Can I restart my Disney+ subscription later?

Restarting Disney+ is a simple matter of signing back in and authorizing the monthly or annual subscription. However, you won’t be eligible for the free trial since you’ve already used it up.

Are there are any good Disney+ alternatives?

The big question is, what were you hoping Disney+ would be? Even with its family-friendly focus, the Disney+ content library offers quality content for a number of different tastes.

Maybe you’re a fan of animation but aren’t into the very American style of Disney’s movies. Crunchyroll and Funimation offer hours of anime fresh from Japan. Whether you prefer subbed or dubbed, you should find what you’re looking for.

Or maybe you’re a fan of superhero movies and were bummed to see how few Marvel movies are in the Disney+ library. It’s going to take Disney time to work itself out of the various licensing deals it has with other services like Netflix and Starz. You could subscribe to those services, or join DC Universe while waiting for HBO Max.
