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.
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.
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.
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.
As Hulu is a subsidiary of Disney, there are rumors that Disney Plus will be available as a Hulu add-on.
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.
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.
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.
I absolutely looooove Disney+, it has so many shows that I grew up watching that I can rewatch with so many good memories.
Disney+ is fantastic! There are so many available movies on Disney+ and it's a really kid friendly site! It's easy to find what you're looking for and so nice to have all the Disney content available.
Glad they did this. They have a ton of stuff to watch. Excited to see it grow overtime
I have loved Disney+ for my kids. The selection of movies available is fantastic, and the streaming quality is very high. My only negative is that there is no way to filter out movies I don't want my kids to view.
Disney+ has more than just the typical children shows but instead, there are the latest movies for the whole family to enjoy. The quality of the films are great!
Great , exciting shows movies absolutely live it , never boring, always something to enjoy
I love Disney Plus. It has every Disney movie I could think of. It’s a great way for families to bond.
I love Disney plus it’s the best ! I can watch any of my child hood movies like the proud family!
Disney is fantastic get to watch all the golden classics that you don't see on TV anymore takes you back to your childhood totally enjoy it
Love Disney+. They have great content. All the classics plus new shows and series.
My kids love this. It's great to have a service that doesn't have anything R rated the kids could stumble upon.
There are so many incredible movie and television shows on here but the app crashes and glitches a lot.
I have to give this 5 stars because Disney plus has EVERYTHING! But I am so bummed about all the money I have spent buying movies along the way!! Still, there is so so much content there that I can't be too mad about it.
Disney+ seems to still be figuring out how to run a smooth streaming service. Their players seem outdated and even the layout when selecting a show or movie is not visually pleasing. That being said, there is a good selection of movies available that cannot be found on competitor sites.
We absolutely love Disney plus. We love that it has movies from the vault, Disney channel shows and old school movies. There is something for everyone.
One of my favorite apps to use right now. It has so many classic movies I haven’t seen in ages.
Our new favorite streaming app. Disney plus is incredible. I can’t say enough good things about it. They have so many movies and it’s worth every penny. We use it every single day.
Disney+ is awesome, I love having most of the disney movies at my finger tips. I will say the one thing that disappointed me was that they dont have the movie "Life Size" on there. One of my favorites as a kid!
The classic Disney shows alone are worth the price of this. But my children also enjoy the new shows from Disney, that we don't see because we don't pay for cable.
I love the ease and accessibility to find shoes on Disney+. It is now a staple streaming service for me.
Disney Plus is my favorite platform to watch TV shows and movies. They have all the Disney shows you could wish for. 10/10 would recommend!
Finally somewhere I can watch all of my childhood favorite movies and tv shows that I forgot about
Best thing since sliced bread if you have children. We use it almost every day! Literally has almost any Disney movie you can think of, and it’s much cheaper than other streaming services. Thank you Disney.
Reliving my childhood and sharing with my children! Love the app and it make long car tips super easy!
Absolutely loveeee disney +. Has everything. Ranging from Documentaries to a sit down and watch show.
Disney Plus is an amazing app to watch Disney and Pixar movies! I enjoy being able to access my favorite childhood movies whenever I want to.
I LOVE watching all of the original disney classics on this app and all of the new shows they come out with like high school musical the musical the series
This is a place for people that love Disney because all of the Disney are on there and you can watch away
It has ALL I want. It's an amazing app for movies and shows. Highly recommended for Disney movie fans.
In love!! Has all the movies/shows from the 1950s till now. You can watch any Star Wars or princess movie you wish! Great for kids and very affordable
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!

I love Disney+, I watch it everyday! I have always loved Disney and starwars movies and now I can watch them anytime I want! It's cheap and an amazing platform.
They have very good movies new and old however I do see myself missing some movies that aren’t on the app. For example: Ice Age. I think it is over priced but I am also great full for the childhood originals on the app.
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.
We love Disney +! The sheer volume of content is amazing and sometimes overwhelming. There's always something to watch.
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.
I recently just got Disney+ and I absolutely love it. It has all of my childhood movies and TV shows on it.
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
Disney Plus is a must have. With practically every Disney show on there, you can find exclusives like the Mandalorian that are not found anywhere else. It is also so cheap and has the best shows.
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.
I love the new disney + app. My favorite part is i can watch any old movie or disney show. Brings back memories. although im disappointed i thought there would be more content so im hoping they add more.
My kids begged me to subscribe to Disney Plus. It's been so much fun to catch up on all the wonderful Disney shows that they have available. There is something for everyone in the family to enjoy and many classics. It's a good value for the money as well.
This is one of the best places to get your favorite old disney movies and shows. You can find these shows or movies anywhere else.
Disney+ is great for when you need some fun disney movies to watch! Disney+ would also work great for a fun date night. This would be an awesome way to watch movies!
I am all in on Disney +. Their original content is awesome and they have opened the vault and made it all accessible digitally. Love it!
I am highly impressed with Disney+ so far. The amount of content on the platform is amazing.

I absolutely love Disney+! I have free Disney+ with Verizon unlimited data, and even though the service just launched I have already gona through the movies and shows available and I can't wait to spend the weekend watching them! They have so many options and shows from my childhood that I forgot about and can't wait to see again!
