Although plenty of streaming services have come and gone in recent years, Disney Plus doesn’t seem like it’s going anywhere. The service is an ideal one-stop shop for people of all ages, whether you’re looking for a Disney hit of some previous era or the latest Marvel or Star Wars content. The streamer has an impressive library, which is part of what explains how it was able to compete with predecessors like Netflix.

The other reason the streamer has been relatively successful is that it’s comparatively cheap. That’s even more true if you subscribe to The Disney Bundle so you get Disney Plus, Hulu, and ESPN+ in a single package every month.

If you’re new to Disney Plus, though, and would like to find the best way to sign up for the service, we’ve got you covered. It’s available on almost any device, and we’ve got a handy guide to walk you through the process.

Once you’ve successfully signed up, check out our guides to the best movies on Disney Plus, the best originals on Disney Plus, or the best Disney movies more generally.

How to sign up for Disney Plus

Before you can log in to watch Disney Plus, you’ll first need to sign up for the service. Fortunately, the steps required to do that are relatively simple, and follows a similar process to other streaming services.  Simply go to and click either Get the Disney Bundle or Sign up for Disney+ only based on which option you prefer.

Whichever you choose, the process is very similar. You simply enter your email address, while choosing whether to receive emails from Disney Plus, then click Agree and Continue. Enter a password then click Continue. Once that’s completed, you will need to enter your payment method. If you choose to sign up for The Disney Bundle, it’s also possible to choose to upgrade to Hulu (No Ads) for $6 a month. While that brings your total up above $20, but its still a solid bargain for three streaming services.

Once you’ve entered your payment details and clicked the Agree and Subscribe button, you are all set up. Simply log into the service and you can begin watching. At first, you’ll probably browse through the web browser but it’s easy enough to install dedicated apps onto your smart TV, phone, or games console. Fortunately, it’s all simple to do. Maybe best of all, once you sign in on the phone app, you don’t have to enter your password on the smart TV or console apps to get started. Providing your phone is on the same Wi-Fi network, Disney Plus will pick up your details at the touch of a button, saving you the need to enter anything manually.

Disney Plus has been going from strength to strength since it launched. One of the best streaming services out there, you really want to get this service. It's a smart move to learn everything possible about how much it costs before you dive right in. Let's take a look.
How Much is Disney Plus?
Disney Plus isn't as cheap as it once was but it's still tremendous value. Unlike many other streaming services, Disney Plus offers just one simple monthly rate. By paying either $8 per month or $80 a year, you get the full wealth of Disney Plus with no premium service currently available. As you can see, signing up for a full year works out as better value than paying month-by-month as you get two months for free by sticking with it for a full year. You will need to pay for the full 12 months in advance though so if you're only considering dipping your toe into the Disney Plus waters, signing up for just one month may work out better for you.

Whatever you decide to do, you get full access to everything Disney Plus. That means that all shows and movies are available in HD with many things also watchable in 4K resolution. If you have a 4K TV, you won't have to pay extra for watching something at 4K resolution. Disney Plus has over 100 titles in 4K and HDR including substantial Marvel and Star Wars content. Many shows and movies also provide Dolby Vision and HDR10 support too so the picture looks truly fantastic. Compatible devices can also appreciate Dolby Atmos sound support without paying any extra for the subscription service too.
