Disney Plus costs $8 a month, making it cheaper than competing streaming services like HBO Max and Netflix. The low price helped Disney Plus amass more than 118 million subscribers since its launch in November 2019, and Disney now expects to reach more than 230 million subscribers by September 2024.

Disney Plus can also be bundled with Hulu and ESPN+ for $14 a month, which is an $8 discount on the combined price of all three services. Deals on Disney Plus are occasionally available through other companies like Verizon, which offers a complimentary Disney Plus subscription with some of its cellular data plans.

You can find more information about the cost and features of Disney Plus below.

How much does Disney Plus cost? 

There are a few different Disney Plus prices depending on whether you want to pay on a monthly basis, commit to an annual subscription, or bundle Disney Plus with Hulu and ESPN+.

Here are the most recent pricing options:

Disney Plus monthly subscription: $8 a month

  • Up to 4K playback with HDR, Dolby Vision, and IMAX-enhanced support on select titles.
  • Unlimited downloads
  • Ability to stream on four devices simultaneously
  • Ability to add up to seven profiles 
  • A GroupWatch feature for syncing playback with friends and family.

What is Disney Plus Premier Access?

Though the regular Disney Plus catalog is included with a standard subscription price, Disney occasionally offers early access to select titles that are still playing in theaters for an additional $30 fee. This option is called "Premier Access."

The first Disney Plus Premier Access movie was "Mulan," released in September 2020. Disney followed up by releasing "Raya and the Last Dragon," "Cruella," Marvel's "Black Widow," and "Jungle Cruise" via Premier Access during 2021. All of these movies were eventually added to the Disney Plus catalog after about three months in Premier Access.

How does the price of Disney Plus compare to that of other streaming services? 

Disney Plus offers a competitive price. Here's how it compares to other popular, on-demand streaming services. The prices shown are for the ad-free plans (if applicable). 

ServicePrice
Disney Plus:$8 a month
Netflix:$9 to $18 a month 
Hulu:$13 a month 
Amazon Prime Video: $9 a month
Apple TV Plus: $5 a month
HBO Max:$15 a month
Peacock Premium Plus:$10 a month
Paramount Plus:$10 a month

What are the Disney Plus bundle options?

If you want to watch sports content and additional movies and TV shows from non-Disney sources, you should consider the bundle option.

The Disney Plus, Hulu, and ESPN+ bundle currently costs $14 a month. If you sign up for each of these services individually, the total would come out to $22 a month. This means that you can enjoy an $8 discount when bundling the three together.

Existing Disney Plus or ESPN+ subscribers can upgrade to the bundle without having to cancel their current memberships. To upgrade and save, you can visit the Disney Plus bundle page here. 

It should be noted the version of Hulu included in the bundle by default still features ads. If you pay a bit more, however, you can upgrade to the ad-free or live TV versions of Hulu and still take advantage of the bundle discount. You can find detailed instructions for bundling different versions of Hulu with Disney Plus and ESPN+ here.
