What is Disney+ Day and When is it This Year?

With so many Black Friday deals floating around earlier than ever this year, lots of great promotions, and, of course, the holidays coming, it’s probably no surprise that Disney is joining the fun! This year, they’re kicking things off Black Friday-style with an event called Disney+ Day! It is both a celebration of the streaming service’s success and the holiday shopping spirit, but just what is it exactly? More importantly, when is Disney+ Day?

Disney+ Day is on Friday, November 12, and it will feature a host of events, including a great deal for new and returning subscribers. According to Disney, “Disney+ subscribers, and fans will enjoy exclusive offers, surprise moments, exclusive entertainment, content premieres from all of the service’s marquee brands, and much more.” We’ll be getting new releases and exclusive content from properties like Disney, Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars, National Geographic, and more. But also, up until Sunday, November 14, new and returning subscribers can sign up for a Disney+ subscription for just $2, for the first month. You won’t have long to claim that deal, so hurry!

What’s New for Streaming on Disney+ Day?

Yes, the $2 deal for the first month is awesome — take advantage while you can — but it’s not the only thing happening as part of the Disney+ Day celebrations. New and exclusive content will also be made available to existing subscribers, so everyone can partake!

Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings is a big addition, coming as part of Disney+ Day, but we’re also getting Jungle Cruise, a Marvel Studios’ 2021 Disney+ Day Special, and a brand new Home Alone movie, called Home Sweet Home Alone.

Besides the $2 deal, for your first month, a few other deals and discounts are happening to coincide with Disney+ Day. Disney+ subscribers visiting a Disney theme park, for example, will be allowed to venture inside 30 minutes before the park officially opens to everyone else.
