LAST UPDATED: February 4th, 2023

Disney Plus, The Walt Disney Company’s new streaming service, is set to launch in November 2019. From the content lineup, critics and fans expect the service to pose strong competition to Netflix, Amazon Prime, and other streaming services. Prior to now, Disney’s content has been available through other streaming businesses, but now the content will phase out of other businesses and only be available on Disney Plus.

The Good

  • Exclusive Content
  • Low Price
  • Growing Library
  • Potential Bundle with Hulu

Exclusive Content

Up until now, Disney content has been displayed mostly on Netflix. However, now all of Disney’s new releases and original content will be exclusively available for streaming on Disney Plus. In addition to new and classic Disney films, series, and shorts, Disney Plus will also feature content from Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm (Star Wars), and National Geographic. The service will also have exclusive rights to all 30 seasons of The Simpsons.

For Star Wars and Marvel fans, Disney Plus is a must. The service will debut series whose stories are intertwined with upcoming feature films. The Marvel series include Loki, WandaVision, Hawkeye, Falcon and Winter Soldier, and What If…?. The Star Wars series include The Mandalorian, a Cassian Andor series, and others. In order to fully understand the plot of the new movies, you’ll need to be up to date on the series.

Low Price

Disney Plus launches with an initial price of $7 per month, or $70 per year. This is incredibly low for the quality of content. Netflix’s most basic plan starts at $9 per month. However, commentators speculate that Disney’s $7 per month price will increase as the amount of content on the platform and its popularity increase.

Growing Library

Though Disney Plus’s library of content will start quite a bit smaller than its top competitor Netflix, it has plans to add a substantial amount of content in the next few years. Disney CEO Bob Iger informed shareholders that Disney Plus will eventually include all of Disney’s movie library, including movies in the “Disney Vault” that have been kept out of circulation.

Potential Bundle with Hulu

As Hulu is a subsidiary of Disney, there are rumors that Disney Plus will be available as a Hulu add-on.

The Bad

  • Might Not Have a Free Trial
  • Price Might Increase
  • No Third-Party Shows or Films

Might Not Have a Free Trial

Though it’s pretty customary for streaming services to offer a free trial before you subscribe, Disney Plus hasn’t mentioned any kind of trial period on its website.

Price Might Increase

Disney Plus itself has made comments that hint to the subscription’s price increasing, perhaps even in the first year of after service’s release. Though right now it’s advertised as $7 per month, the price is bound to increase quickly.

No Third-Party Shows or Films

Disney Plus will only feature content from its own studios and its partner studios. This will include content from Marvel, Lucasfilm, National Geographic, and Pixar. Though this is quality content, other streaming services have more varied content.

gavel

The Bottom Line

If you like Disney, Pixar, Marvel, or Star Wars, this streaming service is the place to be. Though we don’t yet have enough information to review the functionality of the product, the customer service, or customer satisfaction, the content lineup and competitive price are impressive.

Disney+ is great because they offer a variety of movies and TV shows for everyone in the family to be able to watch. My five-year-old son is baby Yoda‘s biggest fan and with Disney+. He can watch baby Yoda all day every day. I also love that while traveling, you can put your username and password into hotel TVs and watch Disney+ on the go . I also found out that you can bundle Disney+ with Hulu and ESPN for one low price every month.

I recently began using Disney + to stream TV. It is a nice addition to my other streaming apps. For the price, there are many options and genres for the entire family. I never have to worry about what my child is watching because of the ratings listed clearly.

I tell you what I have never seen a streaming service come out the gate booming as big as Disney+ did. Really enjoy watching alot of the old Disney movies on there and a couple new ones. But mainly the new TV shows from marvel and starwars. Rn just watched the 1st episode of SheHulk and tbh I really enjoyed it more than I thought I would.

Solid for kids. Good if added on with Hulu and espn but not worth it by itself. They do add new movies fairly quickly, which is the main reason we have it.

Disney+ is a life safer as it has all of my favorite Disney classics all in one place for a great price. The Star Wars, Marvel, and classic Disney content make it worth the price alone, the rest is for sure a great bonus! I look forward to my kids one day, being able to grow up with some of the same movies and shows I did as well as content made for them!

Great site! Great selection I am a proctor parent of a Transition to Adult Living home Never can go wrong with Disney + except I always seem to have “billing issues “ every other week I’m like what ever happened to pay once a month and not worry. I personally don’t watch it much except when Mulan came out. Gotta love it for the kids

Disney+ is my family's favorite television pastime. One of my favorite aspects of Disney+ is that you can save the movies on your devices, so you may view the movies/tv shows while you are away from a network connection. The catalogue is amazing. Marvel, Star Wars, Disney, National Geographic, and original programming... it's simply amazing.

I absolutely love Disney plus. My girls and I were so excited about having this come out. It takes us all back to when all these Disney shows were on. It’s like a jump back in time. It’s been a huge hit in our house and we are all excited about the new series that will be coming out. I already loved watching the mandalorian. That one was a big hit. This is a must keep. Totally in love with Disney plus.

We have been loving Disney+ so far. I appreciate some of the obscure, older movies and TV shows you have to offer. I also love the access to National Geographic documentaries and other variety of shows. It helps this appeal to a greater variety of people. We have loved the Mandalorian as well. It is fun to choose your own picture to represent you. We are pleased with this service.

Disney plus is a pretty new player in the video streaming game, but they have an incredible variety of shows. Since Disney owns so many different properties, this is one of the only places you'll be able to find Star Wars, Marvel, and Disney content in the future, which is worth it if you're a big fan of any of these franchises. I've had no problems with the streaming quality yet, and they also offer a good deal that comes with Hulu too.

Disney+ started off with a small but good selection of Disney films. It seems to be growing, but I'd still like to see more of the old classic Disney as a lot of the newer stuff is not up to the same quality.

They are for sure not as many movies for adults but I love that I can see so many different movies from Disney. This makes it so much nicer than having all the DVDs. I’ll be honest I got rid of most of our DVDs after this came out. Although if you were into Star Wars stuff I’d say this is definitely a big sell point. The national geographics part is pretty cool
