Disney+ Plans and Pricing

While Disney plans to make its streaming service a truly global operation, it set its initial launch in five countries. The streaming service launched in the United States, Canada and The Netherlands on November 12, 2019 and in Australia and New Zealand one week later. Further expansion in Europe is planned for March 2020 with more countries to come.

Another option is a bundle of streaming services owned by The Walt Disney Company — Disney+, ESPN+ and the ad-supported version of Hulu. If you subscribed to each service separately, you’d end up paying $18 per month. But when you get the bundle, you save 28% and only pay $13 per month.

Given all of the ways you can spend money with Disney’s various properties, we wouldn’t be surprised it other promotional pricing became available. Spending a week at Disney World or taking a Disney Cruise, for example, could get you a discount on a Disney+ plan.

Before committing to whichever Disney+ plan you’re interested in, you’ll have seven days to test the streaming service out. Given how much content Disney+ has on tap, you’ll barely be able to skim the surface during that week. But it will give you enough insight to know whether the catalog is worth the cost.

Renewing Subscriptions

Your subscription will automatically renew at whatever price the Disney+ plans are. On a month-to-month plan, you’ll get hit with any price increases as soon as the next month rolls around. That’s an extra benefit of the annual plan — you lock in today’s rate for twelve months.
